Obviously stuck in the intersection, because the transmissions are failing.

Brake rotors drilled or slotted? Lower rear looks nice. I like how it slops up

Those cars most likely came from Yuma, and will be heading back there soon.

The padded cover on the rear of that second car makes it look sooo long. Room for lots of golf clubs behind that engine. ��

im in San Diego, havenít seen these yet.

I did see one of the first uncovered C7s coming from AZ. That car was shortly after on several magazine covers. Maybe we are getting close to the C8 reveil.

His cover is blown, he works for GM and is leaking at their direction.

They need to head up to LA up the 405 to test ouf the suspension on the bounciest freeway in the nation, just before the 10 freeway.

I was thinking the same, looks like a good amount of storage will be avalible if it's really a long as it looks.

Should have set the hazards on and ran over to capture the interior. Or yanked off a few pads of camo. Hahaha.

SSDD.

As everyone has pointed out the C8 looks a bit long, which I actually like. Has a bit of Diablo in it IMO with that rear slopping up and long rear deck.

Doubt it. Testing in Yuma right now is fairly pointless as the weather is fairly "normal". Second, most of the time they'll truck the vehicles straight there. . .

Why else would they be in San Diego? San Diego is one of the furthest cities from anywhere else they'd go, and it should have fairly similar weather to Yuma anyways. San Diego just works out as a downtown testing location, and the interstate from Yuma to San Diego helps to put more miles on the mules.
