How do loose bolts sitting on top of the engine in a brand new 2021 Corvette pass quality control at the Bowling Green Corvette Assembly Plant?Over the years, I've seen plenty of quality control issues with Corvettes occasionally coming out of the Bowling Green Corvette Assembly Plant. Some of them I can understand how they might have slipped by. Others leave me scratching my head. This is one of those cases.
The lead photo above shows a brand new 2021 Corvette that just arrived at a dealer fresh off the Jack Cooper Transport truck. The shipping covers weren't even off the car, when the trunk was opened to make sure that the bag of floor mats and center caps were in the car. Sitting on top of the engine were these two bolts.
