Default Spoiler Alert! Its been ordered and paid for.

Should have it in a couple of days. Now I just need my C8.

Shane at the NCM indicated my preliminary TPW is the week of 7/12.

Just in time for the hottest part of the summer.

OK I have to tell you...I saw a high wing spoiler on a C7 today and it was hideous. I mean...are you going to go around Talladega?

Or do you just like the look?

Mike! You know I race my Vettes, certainly you know I'm not a poser. Wing won't do dick for autocross, but I will be doing track nights at Sebring, Daytona, Homestead, and PBIR for certain. BUT, personally, I also like the look better...ESPECIALLY on all black.

Well the high wing on the C7 ZR1 and the C8 are not bad looking but to be the only car with a high wing that loos great is a top fuel dragster.

I was just at the neighbor's across the lake for the association meeting and he showed me his new C8 vert his kids bought for him and it was amazing. I am looking so forward to when you get yours Craig and hearing how you like it.

Nah I didn't think you were a poser. I just wasn't aware you were doing the track nights. To be fair, this particular C7 was yellow with yellow wheels, big Corvette decals all over (as if we didn't already know it's a Vette), that big stupid skull on the rear hatch. It just screamed Ricky Racer to me.

Also...I've always liked a very understated look on my cars (Lamborghini notwithstanding), so whenever I see stuff like that it's always cringe-worthy to me.

If the look works for you then go for it!

Why not have it factory installed or is it aftermarket?

It's a factory GM part, and the dealership will install it when they do the PDI when the car arrives. Option to have it come from the factory again is not currently available.

My adoptive father missed out. He always wanted a Porsche 911, but never had the ability to get one. It was always my desire to buy him one. Yet, they abandoned me for meeting my birth mother 27 years ago. Considering the fact that I haven't had contact with my mom or dad in 21 years, I guess he won't be getting one.

I AM considering buying my birth mother, out in Vegas, a cool car soon. We have a fairy tale relationship. Mom may need a Corvette. She is my blood, I have lineage now, and I spoil the shit out of her.
