Where Does The Corvette Plant Manager Go To Buy A Vintage 'Vette?

By Jeffrey N. Ross, Motorious

Somewhere with "Corvette" in the name, of course.

Kai Spande is the plant manager for General Motors' Bowling Green Assembly Plant where the Chevrolet Corvette is produced, so it's safe to say this guy knows his Corvettes. So when it came time to pull the trigger on the purchase of a vintage 'Vette, he turned to Corvette Mike to buy a fully restored, award-winning C2.

Corvette Mike sells Corvettes from all generations (C1 through C7), and Spande took home the Milano Maroon 1966 Chevrolet Corvette you see here. This car received a frame-off restoration about 20 years ago, and it is the proud recipient of the prestigious Bloomington Gold Award. Under the hood is the L72 427 CID V8, which is good for 425 horsepower, and this engine is paired to a four-speed manual and the rare factory side exhaust option. This beautiful car is also equipped with Kelsey-Hayes knock-off wheels with Goodyear Goldline tires.

Oddly enough, this car was discovered in original condition somewhere in Kentucky, but it was in bad need of a restoration. After a two-year, nut-and-bolt restoration, this Corvette turned out in incredible condition before being sold through Corvette Mike's original Anaheim, California location.

That means this beauty will be headed back to its original home where it will surely meet up with plenty of other noteworthy 'Vettes. In fact, being the plant manager seems to have the advantage of driving home in the not-for-sale-yet mid-engine Corvette, and as you can see in the image above, Spande's new '66 Corvette looks absolutely stunning even when parked next to a Rapid Blue C8!

If you're in the market for a Corvette new or old (or even a non-Corvette classic), be sure to contact Corvette Mike. They are the go-to source for anything having to do with Corvettes from daily drivers to show winners.
