Default Carbon 65 owners roster

The 2017 GS Collector Edition has its own thread. There are less Carbon 65's. I wonder how many are on this forum. Heres mine.

My dealership in Kansas City (a Hendrick dealership) actually has 2 Carbon 65 Editions available !!!! They're gorgeous in person. I'm not a fan of the "Carbon 65" across the bottom of the door, but my love of Carbon Fiber obviously draws me to them.

I guess I am the only one on the forum. From what I read the ceramic grey is not a popular color. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I really like it. Now if the weather would let me out of the garage.

I'm sure there are more than just you. There just didn't seem to be a Carbon65 owner step up and take ownership of it like mountainears did with the GS CE Owners Thread and Registry.

I have never been a fan of anything white and even less for the Matrix color. But I must say when I saw one in person it looked better than I thought it would.

Participated in the East Tennessee Corvette Club autocross event yesterday. Gosh I love this car. Advised it would be a collector car and worth a lot in 20 yrs so it should not be raced or used in a way that would put on too many miles? I'll let someone else down the road worry about that. I will track it and drive the wheels off.

<Raises hand>

There are more of us here than it seems. Iíve noticed at least 3 posting.

Iíve got a GS that I just love. Have never been a fan of logos or branding so Iíve de-decaled my car. Has everything else I wanted which is why I bought it off my local dealerís lot.

As you can see, she sees track time so Iíve also upgraded the brakes.

Nice to meet you OP! Great choice!

-Ash

The color of this can only be appreciated in person. Saw one on display at Road America and the white is like a pearl white or metallic white/gray. It's an awesome color with the blue brake calipers.

Agreed. The pearlescense and blue tint isnít noticeable unless under direct sunlight... lots of people who arenít even car folks have stopped and asked me what color mine is. Impressive that they realize itís not white.

I've made this thread a Sticky, just like the Collector's Edition, for you!
