Wahpeton, N.D. - For Mike Boock, Christmas came early this year. Boock, the shipping and receiving manager at WCCO Belting in Wahpeton, was given a special gift on Saturday night. At a roast honoring his 40 years of work with the company, he was presented with a toy model of a 1972 Corvette, the year that he started work at the plant.
That wasn’t the real gift, of course – taped to the bottom of the toy was a key to an actual restored 1972 Corvette.
Gazing at the gold-colored car in the parking lot of the plant on Sunday afternoon, Boock said it hasn’t sunk it yet that the vehicle is actually his.

How cool is that? Not many companies would do something of that magnitude.
Very cool, a good example of what is missing today in the USA- a local worker giving his life for one company and USA made product and the company recognizing what they have/had for 40 years. What could be a better way to celebrate then with an American Icon- the corvette and worker.
