Yeah, I know what it has right now, but things can change, and taillights have been known to change on models in between model years with ease!

I fit neither of those categories. I don't own a C7 and don't care if it goes away ***other than if I know it is going away I'd likely buy a 1LT Stingray right now and sell it in a year for the same or more than I paid for it because the price of the ME would be so much higher out the door***

I'm using straight up logic here. The 1LT Stingray sells because of its price and value. While the ME might provide just as good value from a performance standpoint most Corvette owners never take their cars on a track and simply won't care. The ME to me is like the GS. Most who buy them don't do so for the performance but rather the look which is why I think the ME fits into the Corvette lineup right where the GS is... and it should fit into the lineup right where the GS is on price too. So we are missing a major sales component of Corvette... the base model. And we already have the dadgum thing worked out and ready to go.

Lets see, You, jefnik, and foosh are buds? Are you all in the same ward? What ever happened to nurse Ratchet?

Shaka, when you "argue" like that you show yourself for a fool. Do you have a counter argument to the specifics here or not?

Why would you seek knowledge from a fool?
