Didn’t they sound amazing ? Pure music 🎶 to the ears. I put on a sportscar race and my wife doesn’t get the beautiful sound coming from the surround sound I have set up on the TV. Oh well but she does go to the Daytona 24 every year. Slow progress. Tiny steps as they say. This is the first time she got involved with the ordering ordeal on the C8 . Made me proud to be honest. She is slowly getting hooked . 

Good work, bud, keep working on “B” and little Will.    When you get your C8 let your wife take it for a ride, It will either thrill her or scare the “Hell” out of here!   We’ll just have to wait and see.      :hysterical2:

I don't....:hysterical: ……….Blk roof don't help it either......the one thing I hate about my ZR1 is the carbon fiber roof I wish it had been body coloured like my Z06

I know I'm bias for RED but truly put a red Vette of any year next to one of a different colour and the red one stands out way more in my opinion....:thumbsup:

Yeah it’s kind of like a Ferrari. You put any red Ferrari next to any other color and the red Ferrari just stands out. No contest.

:shrug:   Under-rated H.P., probably it’s more like 515 to 525 H.P.  from what I heard a while back.    J.M.O.

Hey guys, I get a fair amount of car magazines like Road & Track, Car & Driver, Automobile, Auto-Week, and a couple of others, so I’m able to read alot of different articles on the new C8 Corvette.  So with that said, it seems like the C8 is the hottest ticket out there for a performance car and a very reasonable MSRP for all that your getting in a base price of $59,995 or add the Z51 package for about $5,000. and you get a 0 to 60 mid-engine car in less than 3seconds.  $65,000K  for a mid-engine super car is a no-brainer in my book, it’s one hell of a buy, and Chevy pulled out all the stops and built it with quality materials both inside and out.  Alot of us guys on here are big Ford and Chevy lovers because we own both Shelbys and Corvettes, but we also really like alot of other performance cars too!   So with that said, of course we got the C8 doubters and the nay-sayers too, and opinions up the yang-yang!  The new C8 being such a big hit and at a hell of a price and also being the first production mid-engine Corvette has all the major magazines talking about it with mostly rants and raves.   I really like the 2020 GT500, but I hate the ADMs and will never pay them, it just isn’t right in my book. Well, needless to say all this hype on the C8 and then tack on the ridiculous ADMs on the new 2020 GT500, this sure didn’t help it’s sales with all the negativity concerning the extra large price increase that most of the dealers are charging for it.  Also, then the guys who want to buy the cool GT500 see the Chevy Boys selling their super car at a very reasonable MSRP.    Also, I know there’s a lot of talk on some Chevy Dealers charging ADMs, and yes some are, but I think there is actually more dealers not tacking on any extra charges.   In fact, if you check back a few threads on here the dealers are listed who charges extra and who doesn’t, and mach1 1970 was nice enough to compile that awesome list for us all to see.  As far as everything I can gather from all the cool articles on the C8, there is the possibility of maybe improving the brakes on the base C8 if your planing on tracking it.  Just add the Z51 package and that improves the brakes and a number of other cool things if your ever planning on tracking it, and it really is a bargain for $5K.    Now to get to the point of all this:  simply said, fact is fact, opinions are simply opinions and every one has them!  I like all performance cars because I’m a gear head and I basically like anything with a motor so I really don’t understand all the negative vibe on the C8.   Performance guys who love cool fast cars should really appreciate what the Chevy Boys brought to market for a hell of a price!   Well guys, I guess this was my “Opinion”!!!!     :thumbsup:     :hysterical2:                           

Later guys!                            Mongoose              :peelout:

Those are my exact thoughts also. No way it she putting out over 550 hp. It’s not that much different from the C7 engine as far as breathing goes. It’s just a big old air pump as Mr Shelby used to say.

I was wondering why it had the front wheels tied down to stop it from going backwards.  I guess they wanted to test reverse.  Probably never been done before.
