1-MILLIONTH CORVETTE TO RECEIVE GIANT WELCOME AT GM BUILDING WEDNESDAY NOON

 1-MILLIONTH CORVETTE TO RECEIVE GIANT WELCOME
 AT GM BUILDING WEDNESDAY NOON
 The 1-millionth Chevrolet Corvette -- symbolizing a production milestone never reached by any single sports car -- will arrive at the General Motors Building -- where the first Corvette was designed -- at noon on Wednesday, Aug. 12.
 Thousands will welcome the white convertible on Second Avenue, which will be closed from Milwaukee to West Grand Boulevard. Festivities will begin at 11:30 a.m.
 At about noon, Jim C. Perkins, Chevrolet general manager, will drive the "1-millionth" onto a stage before many special guests. They will include engineers, designers, race drivers, marketers and journalists who have helped build the Corvette mystique over the past 39 years.
 The special guests also will attend a luncheon following the ceremony at the St. Regis Hotel.
 The 1-millionth Corvette will move to the GM Building, where it will join a large Corvette exhibit which continues, admission-free, through Thursday.
 A small media headquarters will be set up just inside the GM Building off Second Avenue in the West Exhibit area.
 In another automotive-related event from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, GM Service Parts Operations (SPO) will host a public autographing session for leading race drivers in the lobby of the New Center One Building across West Grand Boulevard from the GM Building. Included will be Dale Earnhardt, 1991 NASCAR Winston Cup Series winner. SPO's GM Parts and AC-Delco sales activities have associations with these drivers. Questions on this event should be directed to Kathy Bommarito, 313-974-0194.
