Can't believe you didn't build a garage under the new deck.

Your deck will nearly the same size as my house LOL. I'm at 1800 sq ft. Can't wait to see it.

I didn't even think about the HOA.

I bag on GM often. Yet, the C8 hit it out of the park with the new look. The more I see the new body style, the more I see that I like. The 495 ponies and mid-engine is not so bad either. Nice job, GM folks.

What's interesting is with the introduction of the large air scoop behind the door for engine cooling, for the first time ever the cove on the side of the Corvette is reversed. Form follows function. And they made it look perfectly normal and something that looks like it belonged there all the time.

I remember the DVD that came with my '05. They interviewed one of the designers and he said he was told "It better be a Corvette". Even with a total configuration change, they still managed to do that with the C8.

The 2020 Stingray is much better looking, in photos anyway, than the C7. Can't wait to see one up close and personal.

Probably safer than using pyrotechnics or shooting dyed explosive targets at the range. I've seen some pretty raw videos in that vein.

C6 and C7 did nothing for me. The C5 when it came out I was like "Wow, I have to have one of those".

I remember the first time I saw one in Germany in 1998. I followed it because I had no idea what it was. I will do the same with the C8 for sure.

It's cool to see what everyone designs on the configuration app.

I drew outside the lines slightly...If there's any one thing this car is begging for, it's decent looking wheels.
