A parts and accessories retailer is asking Congress to mark June 30th as ‘National Corvette Day,” the day the first Corvette rolled off of the assembly line in 1953. Mid America Motorworks has created the petition which will be presented to Congress by Rep. John Shimkus of Illinois.
“It is a popular piece of Americana and an integral part of American history and the automobile,” Mark Merkel, spokesman for Mid America Motorworks, told Inside Line. “We thought this would be a good time because this is the 100th anniversary of General Motors.”
Mid America Motorworks is encouraging Corvette fans to contact their congressional representatives for their support.
The parts and accessories supplier for Corvettes also organized petition to the U.S. Post office to create a Corvette stamp. The stamp was released in 2005 with the picture of the 1953 Corvette.
