Chevrolet Plays Centerfield

The Detroit Tigers season opener was a few days ago, and just like David Price and the rest of the team, Chevrolet has been preparing for the big day.

For the past six seasons, Chevrolet has chosen vehicles from its lineup to adorn the top of the Chevrolet Fountain at Comerica Park in Detroit, Mich. This fountain sprays Detroit Tigers spirit every time the Tigers score a home run, shooting water high into the air, all while a growling tiger roars through the park’s speakers.

This year, the fountain features a Velocity Yellow 2015 Corvette Z06 and a 2015 Midnight Edition Silverado. Reaching their perches atop the fountain is no easy feat. It is a three-hour process by a team of highly skilled professionals that requires gingerly lifting each vehicle into place using cranes. To see the behind-the-scenes magic, check out the video below:

Blue Lego Corvette

Ever since he can remember, Dave Slater has always wanted a 1969 Corvette. But rather than scrimping and saving for it, he just went ahead and built his dream car.

Out of Legos.

Lego_Corevette_build_stepsSince he uploaded it on Aug. 29, Dave’s design and creation of a 1969 Chevrolet Corvette is gathering support among both Lego and Corvette enthusiasts.

“I didn’t expect for the project to take off like it has. The response has been enthusiastic ever since I posted images of the design back in May.”

Dave has been a long time Lego fan, and sharing his love with his wife started him on the road to create this Lego masterpiece.

“Like so many other people, I grew up playing with Legos, but I put the sets away sometime around high school. When I found out my wife had never played with Legos, I knew I had to get out my old sets.”

Sharing the joy of Legos with his wife reignited Dave’s interest in the hobby, and he began thinking of ways he could design his own creations. He soon decided his first original creation would be his favorite car – the 1969 Corvette.

“For as long as I can remember, I have loved this car. The car just speaks to me. I love the curves and shape of it.”

Dave works as a designer in the litigation industry, and used his skills as an artist to help him create the Corvette.

“By day, I’m an artist creating 2D and 3D models within the tech sector, so I’m constantly drawing and modeling. When I set out to create the Corvette, I started by using the tools Lego provided to determine what pieces I would need for the build. I’d drawn the Corvette and modeled it in 3D so many times, I knew every curve of it.”

LDD_Corvette-520x300Using the Lego Digital Designer tool, Dave was able to see what Lego pieces were necessary to create the Corvette.

The Corvette ended up needing around 1,500 Lego pieces to create. Though he started off with many Legos of his own, Dave tapped in to a worldwide community of Lego enthusiasts to find the pieces he needed. That in itself was hard enough. What made the search even more difficult, however, was Dave’s color choice.

“I chose to make the Corvette blue for a couple of reasons. For one, it’s my favorite color. Secondly, this particular Corvette has always been blue in my mind (although I do prefer the C2 in red). And lastly, the online community tends to build kits like this out of red, black or yellow pieces, so I knew the blue would stand out.”

We’re a fan of the blue… what do you think?!

“Since 1953 the Corvette has been America’s Sports Car. The National Corvette Museum was established as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit foundation with a mission of celebrating the invention of the Corvette; preserving its past, present and future; and educating the public about Corvette.

National Corvette Museum - 009

With over one mile of frontage on Interstate 65 and located across from the National Corvette Museum (NCM) and the Corvette Assembly Plant, the Motorsports Park will be one of the most centrally located and easily accessible driving facilities in the country.

The Park will be situated on 184.05 acres that the NCM has purchased and had rezoned. The Museum has an option to purchase the adjoining 221 acres that may be used for future park development.

The track will be designed by professionally accredited track consultants in accordance with accepted professional design standards.

The top priority of the NCM Motorsports Park will be education and safety.

National Corvette Museum - 010

Doug Fehan, Corvette Racing Program Manager – “A track at the National Corvette Museum would not only be a great benefit to the racing team, but also for clubs, enthusiasts and organizations planning their own driving events.  The possibilities and the potential for this project?  Limitless!”
