Default Ordered the new one today.

With the Cruiser gone, I needed a new toy and to stay in the Corvette Community of which I've grown fond.

Ordered this today.

Night Race Blue/Yellow Calipers/Kalahari Interior/3LT trim/Z51/NPP exhaust and broke down and got the paddle shift A6 which will be tuned. I should see it towards the end of March which is fine with me.

Took Mrs. WKMCD up to Criswell's where it's ordered. She had never seen the C7. Mike Furman was great and opened up one so we could sit in it and play with all the knobs and buttons. She loved it and insisted that I add the carbon fiber dash option.

There was a special moment where she told Mike that it was at her insistence that I get the C7 when I was at first thinking of buying a 2013 Grand Sport.

She's a keeper!

Not yet. Waiting for a Z51 allocation. Should be ordered in the next two weeks or so and delivery approx. 6 weeks later.

It took so long to order I ended up changing my mind on a few things. Mrs. WKMCD really hated the Kalahari interior and I realized that the lighter brighter colors show off the car's lines better.

I went full pimp.

I used the dealer you first mentioned back in December. I was told late March delivery and as time approached, I was told that was always an order date even though I had email saying delivered. Bud's in Ohio took care of me and $1k off the old MSRP on a Z51.

So you've got a few weeks to order a blower for it.
You might as well do it now, because you know just those modest 450 horses will NOT be enough for you.

I ended up going to Kerbeck for mine since I would just now be in the que at Criswell. Mine is built, just waiting for the call from Kerbeck to come get it.
