Nothing to add, but I hit the rev limiter on mine over the weekend and that thing got pretty squirrelly on the Woodley Avenue On-Ramp to the 118 Westbound. I didnt' crash tho.

I have nothing but positive vibes for all things Corvette (especially the iconic C1-C3ís). Remember, the C2ís and C3ís got their bad-boy reputation which carried (and, still carries per GMís Corvette brand manager) the day for the brand The new GM President (Barry Engle) is my former Ford boss and a good, valued friend. And, my second car was a Ď68 Camaro. But, when it comes to the Mustang vs. what, Camaro (?) I canít put my head in the sand - the Chev cannot compete and they full well know it. Looks luke theyíre throwing in the towel. Again. It will eat many C5-7ís for dinner. Iíve had several and, like the F-Series our passionate and more than a little OCD/ paranoid teams improve them enough each and every year to stay out of reach of the respected Chev. competition. Its good clean fun and tradition to slam the competition including anything ĎFord vs. Chevyí while hopefully remembering to insert an occasional factoid.
On second thought, naaw.... thatís no fun.

Speaking of Ford, look at their Electric 2021 Ford Mustang. It does not look like a Mustang at all.

Step back 20 feet and you can see the silhouette. Almost. Still a stretch to call it a Mustang.

You wonít see me in any line to buy one. It looks like a Mustang trysted with a Jaguar and hereís the outcome. Incidentally, Fordís global design chief, Morey Callumí brother recently retired as Jaguarís design chief. Coincidence? Corvette is also exploring the same concept. The American utility/practical vehicle love affair is showing no signs of abatement. Remember the thrill, and then the demise of the entire personal luxury segment? (Monte Carlo/Gran Prix, Thunderbird, et al). Makers have to keep adapting or die.
That said, the Mustang brand is the gold standard. I hope this doesnít have negative brand repercussions
