A 100 Year Celebration Map

Episode: 909 "A 100 YEAR CELEBRATION"
100 years ago the first Chevrolet was built in Flint, Michigan and ever since there has been a love of the automobile, especially the Chevrolets. This is more than a tribute to Chevy. It is a tribute to the lifestyle, the impression it made on everyone's life and how it made many more things popular from bikes to strawberry shakes.
We have collected information and web links related to the area and combined them here with photos we took and video clips from the show in what we hope will be a helpful guide as you plan your trip. Feel free to select only one or two activities per day according to your family’s interests. For assistance or for more information, call the Flint & Genesee Convention and Visitors Bureau @ (810) 600-1404 Have fun!
