FIRST CORVETTE ASSEMBLED ON THIS DAY

See the source image

 

On June 28, 1953, workers at a Chevrolet plant in Flint, Michigan, assembled
the first Corvette, a two-seater sports car that would become an American
icon. The first completed production car rolled off the assembly line two
days later, one of just 300 Corvettes made that year.

The idea for the vehicle originated with General Motors’ pioneering designer Harley J. Earl, who in 1951 began developing plans for a
low-cost American sports car that could compete with Europe’s
MGs, Jaguars and Ferraris.

SHORT HISTORY OF AN ICONIC CONFECTION

Tootsie Roll is a chocolate-flavored taffy-like candy that has been manufactured in the United States since 1907. The candy has
qualities similar to both
caramels and taffy without being exactly
either confection. The
manufacturer, Tootsie Roll Industries, is
based in
Chicago, Illinois. It was the first penny candy to be
individually wrapped in America. (
