Since you never get over 1 mph it shouldn't be a problem.

Michael,
You win the "CORVETTE FORUM GOOD POSTER AWARD" for the year for not calling it "THE" 405 North.

Maybe they put the extra camo on it, because it was raining, and they're afraid to get it wet, like many Corvette owners?

Yeah, it was announced many years before it showed up, and how's that working out for Honda now? It seems to me an early announcement followed by years of waiting is idiotic. All that early enthusiasm simply died.

Nope.
The NSX was shown (in the great Seinfeld/Leno commercial) in 2012, the car was released YEARS later.

I've seen these clips with the camo car out in the cold snowy weather, here its raining.. what the hell is going on? lol.... corvettes do not go out in the rain and hibernate during winters, so I'm not sure what the hell they are testing.
