The C7 is simply Wonderful

Chevrolet took the pleas and prayers of the faithful and tried to put them all into this car.  The outside is just cool, the inside is as beautiful as a car should be, the C7 is masculine and muscular, pretty and potent, and I can't wait to admire one at a car show this fall.  A lot of folks criticize the rear end as too much like a Camaro, but it still looks great, so ... so what?  Besides, the plain Camaro only wishes it looked like the elegant Corvette.  (Also note, take a look at the rear end of the new Toyota Camry and see if the Corvette doesn't look more like that than it does the Camaro!)  We can complain about something, and it may even make us like our own cars a little better, but most of us would love a new Corvette to complain about what the people behind us are thinking about our tail lights.)  Otherwise, Kudos and Congrats to GM for making a brother Corvette one of the 3 best sports cars on the planet.  (... as for the other 2, we all get to choose ...) 
 
As for me, I have a well-seasoned 87 C4 commuter coupe with 187,000 that still gets 22 city/27-28 hwy, so I'm happy for Corvettes of all generations, grand-dads and grand-kids, and glad I know what the fuss is all about.  BAT

    FINALLY saw my first real life '14 Stingray today. It was parked in a parking lot at a bank I drive by all the time. Stopped and took some pics with my fone....but my fone takes crappy pics.  The car looked really sweet.....much better in person that the pics I've seen anywhere else. Of course..it was RED...

    Well, I've had mine (Coupe, blk/blk, Z51, 3LT, chrome wheels, red calipers) since October 10th. Barring a few days off the road to fix an electrical problem (described in a different thread), I have been breaking it in on the roads in the DC Metro area. So far I have not seen anyone else with one. GM has clearly hit a home run with this one (17th Vette for me). I am getting a large number of "thumbs up" from many people on the road. I get swarmed on in almost every place I park the car. It is like it was with my first C5 back in 1997. I'll try to get a couple of longer road trips before the nasty weather sets in.

    I, too, got a sighting last week, at an all-Chevy auto show at a Phoenix Chevy dealer, Thoroughbred.  The dealer's cars were closed and locked, but two happy owners were showing theirs, so a roof panel was off, windows were down, and doors open, so we all could see what they really look and smell like.  It's the neatest car on the planet.  The best Corvette is the best car, no bout a doubt it!  I'll never have one, but I'll always want one.
