Default Finally, I am an offical member of the club!!

My dealer surprised me yesterday with a call that my 2016 was in! He told me to come by and take a look later in the day. I was not expecting to take her home as I ordered the new high wing spoiler without the Z51 package which means that it would be dealer installed which would take a couple of days, so I was expecting to see the car in the shop or on the back lot. To my surprise, she was in the middle of the show room and he told me to take her home for the weekend!!
The spoiler was not in yet as it did not ship with the car and they are installing it next week! But my baby is home.................


Just Got Her Home!

This has been a life long dream of mine. When I was between 5-10 years old, mt dad sold Chevys and I used to go into the showroom and sit in the vets and dream...

1970-1971 Cort Chevrolet NY

And even before that I had my eyes on a Corvette, it was probably the first car I drove...


Me and my dad 1965 /66 at the Cortland NY Soap Box Derby sponsored by Chevrolet. My dad was a VIP and got to drive this C3 prototype go cart. There I am at the wheel telling him to FLOOR IT!


Time to go cruising and let the mods begin..

Looks great!

As I asked in the other thread, could you post some good pictures of the new standard wheels? Thanks.

Yes they are the new cameras. I will post some more pic of the wheels when I get a chance. Trying to get out of work to go PLAY!!

BTW so far I am not impressed with the apple play. Poor connection quality, but I am using a iPhone 5, may it is time of the upgrade.

Cool. The C7 is 3 years old and still looks great. GM needed to add more interior colors as standard option. I hope this happens in the 2016.
