Default C7 at E3

The C7 is on display at E3.

I guess GM is serious about targeting the younger buyers.

I'm no expert but I believe it's a large gathering for the latest release in videogames and software tech. The stigma of videogames being just for tweens and under is pretty much dead by now so you get a large age/income bracket which attends its annual showing. Good place to show the C7 to make some impressions and generate some excitement.

Yep, all they gotta' do is rotate the distributor to advance the timing and re-jet the carburetor on the LT1, and an instant 45 horsepower gain. After all, that's how they turned the 1963 C2 327 engine from 250 HP to 360 HP. Just a simple tune did it. LOL

I want you to remember all this......we are all going to come crashing down on your C7 intro thread in a few years.

I love E3! Always gets me excited about whats new in gaming. But then I go into depression wanted to play all the games I just saw that won't come out for another 6 months to a year.

Ok, not depression, but sad face.
