My buddy and I remembered that the C8 was coming to an event down here so we decided to check it out. Here are some pics! Really pretty car for sure!
That looks like a Corvette...a car should have a fault or two to remind you that it's a car...
I guess I'm getting old but am getting sick of changes...the younger generation want to revel in our generation's music, movies, fashion style and cars like Mustang, Challenger, Camaro, etc, I find it odd they would change an iconic car like the Corvette.Interesting looking car, I'd like to see one in person. Definitely out of my reach financially, but I like the idea that GM is trying to attract a new demographic.
I was able to combat this issue on the C6 by quite a bit. If you pull out the center console and line everything with heat resistant wrap you will see a difference in heat. Before i could not even put my phone in the center console without it overheating and after that I never had an issue. Definitely a great car and dead reliable minus the balancer going bad due to a design and fuel tank leak between the tanks which can happen.
I see Mustang posters on the wall in the one picture but a Corvette in the foreground...I have a C4, C6 and a couple C7's. I gave up on them because it was hard getting in and out of. Especially when you have a lot of errands to do. Nice cars though. Kind or crampy since I am 6-1. Can't afford them anymore since retiring.

It is interesting however at what point is it no longer a Corvette?I once read that GM made the transition to mid engine because they had reached the design limits of what they can do with a front engine chassis. The exterior is obviously going to change due to the new layout. I think they did a hell of a job on the exterior. The interior, that is a different story. But opinions are always going to be opinions. This is the first new car in a while that has actually sparked my interest. This thing can compete with and beat cars that I could never afford. I will be watching them closely.
How about this license plate on a vette. I really liked the C7's when they first came out and got the 14 below. Sold the 14 GT500. I regretted it later. My explanation for the plate was that a GT500 was always behind a vette.That's like busa guys with kawi pics on the wall. It gives your competition something to stare at all day...
