GM Heritage Center Tour
8:30 - 10:00 a.m.
6400 Center Drive, Sterling Heights

SAE Detroit Section has arranged this exclusive tour, which normally is only open to GM employees, analysts and the media. The GM Heritage Center is not just a museum, but a cross between the ultimate automotive enthusiast's garage and a living repository of automotive history.

In 2008, General Motors opened the GM Heritage Center to coincide with their 100 year anniversary. This facility plays a key role in showcasing the company's rich history of success and its strong engineering capability.

More than 150 vehicle exhibits and historical memorabilia representing 10 decades are represented. The vehicle collection showcases a wide range of GM design, technology, and innovation. Guests will have the opportunity to see past and current concept vehicles, muscle cars, as well as historically significant vehicles form various eras. The center is always changing with vehicle exhibits being constantly freshened.

By highlighting the exciting designs, groundbreaking technology, and powerful brands that have comprised GM’s first century, the GM Heritage Center will help inspire new generations of enthusiasts and make the company even stronger in years to come as GM moves toward a second century of operations. This is evident by great designs, both legendary and recent, like the sixth generation Corvette, Cadillac 16 Concept Vehicle, and the Pontiac Solstice.

This is a great opportunity for SAE members to mentor a young professional, take advantage of the landscape, and experience the history.

The tour is limited to SAE members and their guests. Pre-registration is required. For more information, contact Roxanne Loeffler at the SAE Detroit Section.
