Default Breaking - names!!!

I have it from a source (sorry can't disclose) the REAL NAMES of the C8 line up!!!! I only have names, no prices but I'm sure someone will be along shortly to fill in the blanks on that one.

OK, here we go:

C8 Base - Manatee

C8 Upgrade Pkg 1 - Manta Ray

C8 Upgrade Pkg 2 - Sting Ray

C8 Upgrade Pkg 3 (top of the line) - Zora Kingfish

As I understand from my source (sorry, still can't disclose) the hybrid will be along in a year or two and will be names the Electric Eel!!

I hope you're all as excited about this as I am. Imagine, one can start as a Manatee and wind up the Kingfish in a couple of years.

AKA...it's a joke.

Manatee? Right. A large, lumbering slow moving mammal that only lives in warm water. Gee, what a great thing to name a corvette after.

NOT!

I think the name "Manatee" must be a referring to the characteristics of a typical Corvette owner vice the car. Just say'n......

Now’s the time for NV’s. “Flounder” pic.

even though it seems that the name Manta Ray Will be used in someway since it has been trademarked by GM, a large slow moving lumbering fish does not seem apropo. Halibut would also be a candidate under those naming guidelines

still think mako shark would be a much better name, but hey! If we really don’t like the moniker, A little fishing line and a hair dryer and the problem is solved
