Corvettes on woodward food drive & cruise 2011 bloomfield hills, michigan


Apr 2, 2009
Warren, Michigan
1999 Sebring Silver Convertible
I would like your help in getting the word out about my event this year. This is our ninth year. Last year 400 Corvettes came from all over the US and Canada. This year I hope to hit the 500 mark. Each year it gets bigger there is more to do, lots of fun and the results for the Open Hands Food Pantry are fantastic. I appreciate any help you can give. If you would like more information please do not hesitate to call 586-218-8616. Thank you for your time.

Friday August 19 Open House at GM PERFORMANCE BUILD CENTER
The plant manager is awaiting final approval for this tour. Times will be announced later. If you own a Z06 or a ZR1 you will have a chance to meet the builder of your engine. When attending the tours at the Build Center all safety rules will be in force. No sandals or open toe shoes allowed.
Unfortunately we will not be able to tour the Lingenfelter Museum.
I am waiting on confirmation on tours to the following
  • <LI style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt; mso-list: l1 level1 lfo3" class=MsoNormal>Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village <LI style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt; mso-list: l1 level1 lfo3" class=MsoNormal>Ford Rouge Factory Tour <LI style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt; mso-list: l1 level1 lfo3" class=MsoNormal>Automotive Hall of Fame <LI style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt; mso-list: l1 level1 lfo3" class=MsoNormal>Walter P. Chrysler Museum CONFIRMED
  • Morely Chocolate Company CONFIRMED
Many of us have been to the Corvette Plant in Bowling Green and watched cars produced at the rate of 15 per hour. I thought it might be interesting to see trucks made every 49 seconds.
Why Morely Chocolate? My wife Verna loves chocolate.
In the next couple of months I will be sending notification of additional tours and other suggestions of what to do.
While all of this is going on you will be right in the middle of the World’s Largest Automotive Event, WOODWARD DREAM CRUISE. Every day is a car show. Every night is a cruise night. If it is on wheels you will probably see it here.
Harlan Charles told me he plans to bring some of his team to the Radisson on Wednesday and will bring some cars.
Please remember that with all of the tours, parties and Corvettes this is really to bring everyone together to help support the OPEN HANDS FOOD PANTRY. I am asking everyone to help me by donating food or money or both.
Thank you,
Larry & Verna Courtney
