Hosted every year since the early 2000s, the annual Corvettes & Classics sale is one of the biggest highlights of the year for ADESA Flint. The auction has a close connection to General Motors and Chevrolet Corvettes, and this special sale has become an important chapter in their shared history.

Last week, ADESA Flint celebrated another successful Corvettes & Classics sale with more than 2,400 cars crossing the auction block over the course of two days. Both dealers and employees were eager to see and hear the sights and sounds of nearly 100 Corvettes and several dozen classic cars on display.

The day before the big event, more than 400 units from Chrysler Capital and GM Financial were sold as part of The Sale Before the Sale. Attendees were also treated to an evening event, Dinner in the Lanes. Creative Catering provided delicious food options, and the ADESA Flint team coordinated several fundraising activities benefiting The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Flint.

An added bonus: Every car purchased at The Sale Before the Sale earned the buyer two drawing tickets toward the giveaway of a red 2007 Corvette with 31,000 miles on the odometer.

Early the next day, classic and collector cars were lined up from end-to-end on the auction lot to signal the start of the Corvettes & Classics sale. For Corvette fans, it was the closest thing to heaven.

Immediately following the Corvettes & Classics event, ADESA Flint kicked off a special consignment sale that ran the remainder of the day with classic and specialty cars in dedicated lanes. Featured inventory ranged from a Ford Model T and a Porsche Speedster to modded trucks and a rare 1983 Firebird Trans Am pace car from the NASCAR Daytona 500.

We want to send our congratulations to Steve Nawrocki of Bridge Valley, winner of the auction’s Corvette giveaway. It was hard not to smile when seeing the look on Steve’s face after sitting behind the wheel of his new Corvette.
