  1. I have one of those somewhere as well, someone will want that for sure!!!
  2. Congratulations looks fantastic!!!
  3. Agreed GM is a distant 3rd IMO. I thought about the Raptor, but in the end I couldn't pass up the value of the Ram. I picked it up when Ram was doing 25% off, you can tell they really want to take market share. Truck buyers are the most loyal in the industry, time will tell if the incentive advantage they provide pays off. I got a $71K truck (I know it is crazy what these go for these days, but they are incredibly nice) for like $54K. The Raptor was $73K and the most they were taking off was $5500. The Ram drove much better for a Daily and it had significantly more options.
  4. The Jeep is gone, I have a new Ram 1500 Limited as my daily now, by the way it blows away the F-150, absolutely no comparison. Ram is smoking GM/Ford and picking up well deserved market share.
  5. I do not like GM products, the only one I have ever owned is my first car which was a Nova (Given to me), that car was great to me but GM products never did anything for me. That said that car above could possibly be the best American New Car introduction in my lifetime, the car is flipping amazing and the fact the price is very close to the C7 is absolutely insane. Add in the fact they aren't charging ADM's and I am just dumbfounded. GM absolutely knocked it out of the park, they deserve every award they receive. The GT500 is a great car too, but it isn't a New model, it is just the best iteration of the current model.
  6. I agree 100%, I am not a GM guy at all, I have not owned one since my 1970 Nova (Although that thing was bullitproof), but the C8 is Insane. I am a big Porsche Guy and no doubt GM will finally steal P-Car owners.
  7. The new GT500 is amazing, but the Corvette is revolutionary, the numbers it is achieving with that amount of power is insane.
  8. Just want to add I MUCH prefer the black top over the stripes, for what ever reason I am not a fan of the stripes on this car. I can not stand stripes that do not wrap around the ends that might be part of it, the little gap between the sticker and end of the hood looks awful. Orange with black Top looks Fantastic!!!
  9. Nice post!!! I just can’t get over a $80-100K car having that interior, they could’ve at least added stitching on the dash and doors. Also they need to get over black wheels. I thought about selling my Shelby GT/SC to get one, but in the end I’m getting some mods done instead, new stripes, interior, watts link, brakes, etc. As much as I love this car I cant confidently say at this price it would be my car of choice. I’ll enjoy what I have a few more years and see what happens.
  10. Amazing Car, it looks like they nailed everything performance wise and I absolutely LOVE the looks. I still can not get over the fact the Interior is basically the same as a $35K Mustang. The fake plastic Stitching has to go, I can not think of another car at this price point that has an interior this cheap. If you are going to charge $10K for stripes have an option for a FULL leather Interior. People that spend this much want a much nicer interior. Also PLEASE tell me they plan to offer something other then Black Wheels. Other then those 2 small gripes (Interior isn't too small, but I would deal with it) I love this car!!!!
  11. I absolutely love the GT350, if not for this oil issue I would probably have one in my Garage. I instead decided to spice up the Shelby GT/SC with a New Interior, Watts Link, Ford Racing Control Arms, GT500 take off Brembo's, and New Stripes. I do not have the time to deal with a car with issues, hopefully Ford figures this out.
  12. Incredible Car, I love the color!!! GLWS!!!
  13. Couldn’t agree more. The new 911-S just got Best Drivers Car (GT350 came in 2nd and got awesome reviews) and the Corvette beat out the 911 in a recent review. They said it wasn’t better then the 911, but when you bring price into consideration it just wins, that’s how close it is to the 911. The 911 is the most Admired sports Car ever, that is a Huge compliment. Too bad the GT500 and C8 weren’t available for the testing, Best Drivers Car in my opinion is a much better test then the typical track testing, 99.9% of buyers don’t track their cars. Real world driving is what matters.
  14. Every dealer on the Corvette Forum is selling orders for MSRP. Corvette Forums has many dealers that are sponsors that help out Members with anything and everything Corvette related.
  15. Agreed the Corvette at MSRP, which you can get all day long, makes the GT500 at MSRP a very tough sell. The Corvette is clearly better in every way. That said I’m a Mustang guy, but if I were buying today my loyalty would be changing to GM and the Corvette. Even at MSRP to MSRP I would buy the Vette. The fact they are putting these crazy ADM’s will drive many away. I’ll be laughing at all the GT500’s that sit on lots for months with ADM’s. They tried to get ADM’s for the Bullitt so they sat for over a year, they tried with the 50th, they also sat. After the short window of people that just have to have it first they will sit just like those did. Honestly if I were buying today, because I have 3 kids, I would probably get the Redeye, it’s a much better value and a beast of a car!!!
