Default Few More Photos From Barrett-Jackson

Z0sixTT has already posted some great photos. Here are a few more, trying not to do too many dupes. I had no idea I would catch this. Wandered by the Corvette Racing booth and noticed a large van backing up. Had a feeling. Checked with a young lady at the booth, and sure enough. 10 AM unveiling. I got lucky!

Glad to see a close up of the tail lights, would like to see the headlights really close up, as well as a closeup of the dash. Tail lights are just fine, its the black back end bumper/diffuser that needs changing, ... the color.

Nice shots! Notice Rick Hendrick in the first one.

Thanks for the close-up of the tail lights too - they grow on me more and more with every pic - and those that have seen it in person have been converts. I'm just sayin' ...........

Nice close up shots...Really like the tail lights....Like the entire car. Ranks up there with exotics in my book.

I think this is the first time I've seen a photo with the hatch up. It's a crazy design but looks good, too bad no photos peeking inside the trunk.

Thanks for sharing great pics.

Oh and overall how would you say you felt about the C7 after seeing it in person? The fit and finish, body panel execution and whatnot?

Look at the top photo. Rick Hendrick spent a lot of time going over it.

I heard one of the announcers say that his wife should be around the tv at 10:30 eastern in reference to the C7...but they've also said several times during the day that it's all a crap shoot about when a given car will be on the auction block.

Consensus on another thread, plus what the Chevy people told me, around 10-10:30 PM est.

Rick Hendrick is my bet.......

Thanks. First, let me say. I want one! I didn't really focus on construction, considering this is a pre-production model, but nothing jumped out as poorly done, even when the rear-end was in my face.

Over all, very impressed. Repeating what others have said, it looks like a Corvette. I've even warmed to the rear-end.

Any Dave Ressler sightings? You get Hendrick, Leno and Ressler bidding, it could get stupid in a hurry.
