FLINT, MI -

What could qualify for an AARP membership and still look as good as ever? The Chevy Corvette of course!

The Buick Automotive Gallery is celebrating the 60th birthday of the Chevrolet Corvette being. Entitled ‘Corvettes: 0-60’, visitors will have a chance to see cars like the original 300 "Polo White" Corvettes -- hand built in Flint.

I was given special access to the exhibit before its opening to the public (July 20).

Last time I visited, the Dream Machine were out.

You'll see Corvette body styles from throughout the 60 year history. There’s a beautiful black 63 Corvette Fuelie, the aforementioned original Vette, and a yellow Stingray which happened to be my favorite. In case you didn’t know, 2014 is bringing us the first Stingrays since 1976.

As an added bonus, you still have the chance to see the oldest running Chevy in the world. The 1913 Chevrolet Classic Six is a one-of-a-kind car you'll only see at the Buick Automotive Gallery.

The exhibit runs from July 20 to September 29. . Tickets are $9 for adults, $8 for seniors 60 and above, $6 for kids aged 3-11, and free to ages 2 and under. Admission to Buick Automotive Gallery also includes admission to the Sloan Museum.
