Akerson's '58 Vette Going on Block for Habitat for Humanity

A new home for a classic American car will soon help pave the way for several new homes for families throughout metro Detroit.

General Motors Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson's personal 1958 Chevrolet Corvette will be auctioned off on Friday, Jan. 18, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. EST, by the famed Barrett-Jackson Auction Company in Scottsdale, Ariz. All proceeds will be donated by Akerson to Habitat for Humanity Detroit and its efforts to rebuild the Morningside Commons neighborhood located just east of GM's Renaissance Center world headquarters in downtown Detroit.
