Saw a post on a facebook car page... had to bust out the C7 Z06 for the hunt haha.

2 test cars covered

no I did not get any other video or pictures to respect the privacy of the people with the cars, and to hopefully keep seeing them around town.

These are opportunities for all of us to review the feedback, and treat it as a teaching/learning opportunity. And I always appreciate those that offer feedback that help to others to improve.

For example, I agree (and long have advised) that people need to remember to turn their phone sideways so that video is formatted properly. I actually take most of my photos that way also.

In regards to the video content, while it may have been risky to get out and get closer... doing so would have made for better content/detail. Actually a photo (maybe with a flash too) might have yielded better results.

The other opportunity this provided was that you knew exactly where the cars would eventually be leaving from. So even of you couldn't "stake the place out", maybe you could've contacted others to be on the look out to catch better footage/photos in that area.

Again, great opportunity for teaching/learning. I for one appreciate the effort.

We learned absolutely nothing from that video, and it was partially because it was shaky and poorly formatted.

This vertical video nonsense is a pox upon the internet.

Thanks for the video ScGRaceR! Good to know they have armed security!

So if you see one, approach with caution!!

Hahaha


1. To the few who said thanks. Guess the others wouldnít understand the ďyou had to be there factorĒ I had fun. Canít remember the last time I had this excitement at 12am. Oh yeah. Few months ago when it was the C7 ZR1 / previously Z06ís and Hellcat Test cars! They actually talked to a group of us before and just didnít answer questions and didnít pop the hoods. Your welcome !!

2. To the ones annoyed I didnít go full you tube confidential. If you were on our local Facebook pages you could see all the Camo covered cars In regular traffic. On alligator alley everywhere. any day at any point. As bad as my videois, Still nothing to see. Previous posts during the day had people saying they werenít being friendly. And I donít blame them. This isnít cars and coffee time.

I disagree. The corvette community learned that the C8 may be testing in the SW Florida area and other vigilant observers, or the OP himself are now on the lookout for for C8's in SW Florida and may have the opportunity to shoot some better video.

If someone posts vid and a report from up in Michigan, I think "Well that's nice, but I'm never going to see it. However, SW Florida is right next door and you have my attention. I'll call my son in Tampa and tell him and his friends to keep an eye out - and what to look for just in case. I recognize the odds are small, but I so what? It's fun.

I disagree, it is not a pox on the internet.
It is a tool to separate people that know how to take videos from those that do not.
Obviously this one does not.

You do not need a "UFO sighting" video to convey this information.
