Nice car Blake!

I wondered what the room in the garage was being made for...

Oh Blake, Your so crafty, you had us all fooled! With a delivery time of 2 months out and seeing as how you rarely keep anything longer than 2 months, you can cancel your order of the Vette just before the delivery date. How clever

two months? is that the current expectation?

how'd it creep up to that long without me noticing...


That's my motorcycle rep.... my car/truck rep is waaay different.
I had my Jeep Commander 7 yrs....my Tacoma TRD truck (w/ blower!) for 4.5...

I think he needs to powdercoat the wheels black. Chevy doesn't have the guts to do it. But they did have the guts to put 460HP and 460 ft. lbs. of torque under the hood! Yikes!

They do black wheels - you can get them with the Z51 package.
They go from 18" to 19" and lower profile, so the ride would be a bit less compliant.

I didn't want that in a 'touring' car, the ride will be plenty firm.
Z51 is an awesome track package, but not what I wanted.

Congrats, Blake. Looks like a lot of fun. Good luck keeping your license. I know a good traffic ticket attorney if/when you need one. He's good at saving licenses.

Very Nice! The C7's are an amazing performance car value for those that can resist checking $30K+ extra in factory options... Heck, even Jeremy Clarkson loved it!

Did you find a local dealer willing to give you a decent deal or did you order it from an out of town dealer?
