As the guy that lives right down the street from the dealer, I'm calling dibs on the 2nd ride (after Blake's wife of course) and also volunteer to help with delivery.....

The new Vettes are the sexiest Chevy has made in a long time. Congrats on the new purchase.

You beat me to it. I will have to look for a good example. I'll bet this ride stays with its master for quite awhile.

Local dealer.
With the number of fly 'n rides I do with bikes - I did do a search, checking big volume places like Kerbeck's, and dealers that got a good mention in C7 forums - but I ended up finding a deal that worked for me here.

The company I work for gets the GM Supplier discount, but virtually no local dealers (and few in the country) are participating with the C7.
The car is too popular and they lose money. Would have saved me $4700 off MSRP though

Also had me looking at Camaro SS 1LE, because the GMS discount did apply, and I could have had a $43k car for around $37k.
(the 1LE package is the track capable handling package - brakes, suspension, wheels, tires from the 580hp ZL1 Camaro)

The closest dealer to the office was where I started kicking tires... and drove a convertible.
Every C7 on their lot had a $10,000 "market value" adjustment. I called several other dealers that sold at MSRP.
I gave the first dealer a chance to get my business by first tossing the market value add-on, and starting there....but we didn't get far.

Ended up placing the order at Emich for $1700 under MSRP.

That $1700 savings......

Sounds like when you're up here again we need to meet up with Saul some time for a Kölsch and some caramelized sweet potatoes at Fate or something.

Yowzer! That's a whole year of fly n rides right there. Since the truck sits out and the bikes are in, are the bikes going to be all gone by the time this arrives? I have any empty third stall you could leave it in. Of course I will need a key to back it in and out when I need to get the lawn mower out. .

Should be room for a streetbike still.
I haven't used my tape measure this much in a while

I will probably get one of those Suncast shorty garden sheds to put the lawnmower and snowblower in though.

With a 2 month wait time,you could buy and enjoy another bike before the car arrives.
