Great road trip Corvette

Took delivery in April 2021. Covered 9,700+ miles in first year. Very reliable only issue has been GPS which required a new sim card under warranty. Fantastic performance and very comfortable for long road trip days. We did a 16 day vacation tour to the Finger Lakes and Niagara and had no problem carrying our luggage. 28 mpg on long runs.


2021 C8 Corvette HTC Hard Top Convertible

I had a 2013 C6 Grandsport Convertible. While I loved it, I was looking forward to a new C8 Z06. Since, I am way down on the wait list and am probably 4 years out on purchasing it. I decided I wanted to experience the new C8 and the mid engine. I am glad I pulled the trigger. The C8 exceeds all the expectations I had of it. Love the HTC, even though you lose the view of the engine bay. But my weekend car needs to be a real convertible and not a Targa Top! LOL


2022 C-8 R Corvette Convertible

Purchased new in October 2021, Car #412 of the 1000 built to Commemorate the IMSA #3 & #4 Winning Race Cars. My car is painted Lazer Yellow and sports the #3 on the car. I love the way the car shifts with the 8 speed double clutch transmission. The performance is over the top, as I left on a guy with a Hemi Challenger a couple of weeks ago. He pulled up on the Freeway, jacked the throttle twice and punched it, I mashed down on it and although he had a full car lengths lead, in 3 SECONDS it was over, the gentleman gave me the thumbs up sign an respectfully followed for the rest of the drive. Please note for the first 500 miles on my car the power is reduced by 25% for break-in purposes, my odometer shows 120 miles today. How I explain what it's like driving my car friends and followers, " It's like driving in a video game and you can't put the quarters in fast enough " My comments regarding comfort are, it's hard for us older people to get in and out and I have the Sports Bucket Seats, firm, but helps with the driving experience.
