Default C8 coming up on CBS! ;)

Did they just announce our first supercar with it on the road. I don't know I was looking at my phone but the car up there on the screen looked like it for a second.

I quickly tuned in to CBS and caught the end of that segment about the NSX (darn). It was a good show about how built in the US with factory floor, etc. But why this show now and such an extensive presentation? To take some thunder from the expected release of the C8 ME? Interesting timing.

P.S. I think the Orange got you.

The NSX is a really nice car.

The C8 will have to really be something special (the full blown version, not the base).

I drove the new NSX, it was fast but boring and steering feel felt very isolated. Took 30k off MSRP, if I could get one used with under 15k miles in 4 years for 80k I would get it if it had a warranty. IMO
Anything north of 80 is a waste of moeny.

The new NSX doesn't shake a stick to the old NSX...its a shame what they have turned that car into. Back in the day, there was no car on the road I wanted more than an NSX:

I guess the "experts" at CBS don't think much of the Corvette. I guess GM is sending enough advertisements to that old school network.

Well, here's your chance! I've checked it out a couple times and looks to be in excellent condition. The pics don't do it justice, much better in person. https://www.dreammakersautomotive.co...NSX-Base-DT016
