Default C7 Sighting

Saw this today on I69 south in Fort Wayne. Was only able to snap these two pics and a drive by video as we passed because the man driving (middle aged man, younger woman in passenger seat) was driving like a complete douche.

I must say, was NOT at all a fan of the C7 by online pics but in person I couldn't stop drooling. Car looked to have the orange/red interior and Michigan plates.

That white c7 looks awesome. White could be one of the most stunning colors for the c7.

Thanks for posting up the photos!

Interesting in white. Black Z51 wing looks cool. It's good to see so many on the roads doing long term testing. A lot of exotic manufacturers can't do this nearly as well.

I'm pretty sure he is referring to the 2nd picture where said douche is not driving in his lane correctly

I pretty much like everything about the styling of the C7, including the much more modern taillights.
But is there any reason they have a round gas cap door? It kind of looks goofy with the rest of the car's angular and modern design. It's obviously more apparent on a white car due to the shadowing. Good thing mine will be CRT.

Yes, driving in multiple lanes, weaving through traffic like he was in a race to get somewhere and at one point, going 90+ in a 65/70 limit... Awesome car, terrible driver.

Artic White looks nice. I think I like the body colored spoiler better than the black spoiler.

Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Thanks for posting photos.

I have been a Corvette guy for a long, long time - OK I'm old. And I love em all. But for the life of me, every time I see a photo of the back of the C7 taken from any distance, I immediately think, "new Pontiac Trans Am Firebird". I'm hoping time will have me grow more fond of the rear view, cuz otherwise it's a remarkable evolution of the Corvette.

Because of the shape of the filler neck. Remember, there is no internal, twist off gas cap on the C7. (gag ........... the grand kids just torched the microwave popcorn ......... )
