Looks ok. Maybe it will drive the prices down on the C7's soon.

Warning to all Chevrolet dealers:

When I sold Chevrolets in 2001 about nine out of ten people looking at the Corvettes said "I'm waiting until next year when the come out with the mid engine model." People have been saying this since the 60s, so brace yourselves for thousands of people showing up at your dealerships every day when these cars arrive.

I'm waiting for the front engine model. You know, where the engine is over the front axle, not behind it...

Once again, no place for a front license plate to look decent.

I never put mine on my C6 and never got a ticket, but I don't like driving a car where every cop who sees me has a reason to pull me over. One Highway Patrol officer confronted my in a gas station and rudely gave me a bunch of crap about it. I pleaded ignorance and told him there were several police officers in our Corvette club who didn't have them on their cars (which was true) so I assumed they weren't required. I carried it in my trunk and I figured if it came down to it I could install it on the scene of the traffic stop since it was a peel and stick bracket. Never had to, though.

Too much electrickery and boy ricer here for me. I want to drive, not have to take a night course in computer programming to get the most out of my ride. Thinking that "Joe average" has the experience to program things like throttle response and shock damping will lead to nothing but more lurid slides at car show exit gates. We can all do that without the added complexity of computer control already.

I wish on modern cars there was an option to leave a lot of that crap off and lower the price. I especially hate having to punch through a menu to adjust the bass and treble on the stereo. How is taking your eyes off the road to do that better than the old knob was.

I like it but will have to wait and see it. Hope they have one at Carlisle.
I read where the seat goes back 2 more inches then the C7.

I'd almost certainly jump on one but after this year's GTO and speakers budget.....
Still glad my wife hasn't poisoned my food.
