Default Removing side emblem

Is there location hole behind the chrome "flying bird" on the side of the C7?

Its Glued on. heat it up with a hair dryer, slip some fishing line or floss behind it and do saw motion.

Its a Stingray. Not a flying Bird.
Unless you got a rare Flying Bird Corvette.

Haven't you heard about the bird?

Everybody knows that the bird is the word!

A couple days ago, my wife and I were headed out in my new GS and had some tunes playing from my USB stick. One of 'em was Apeman by The Kinks (remember that one?).

She wakes me up at 3 am and tells me "if I can't sleep because of that damn song, neither are you!".

Hope you enjoyed my gift, Sconn

Easily removed. Fastest and cleanest method I found is using a hairdryer to heat it up for about 20 seconds and peel it off. You’ll have double sided tape residue left over but that’s fine, just use duct tape over the residue and pull up on it real fast.

I'll have to look that one up!

Not sure if I've heard it or not, but the other part or me doesn't want to look it up for fear of not sleeping tonight either!!
