It was near the proving grounds, if your there often, especially for work (assuming you also test at the proving grounds) youíll run into on.

Nice pic, no yawn. That's the best look at the tail lights yet.

Nah, I'm generally at the brewery in Milford, or passing the M plates coming from US23 on M59 at Hickory Ridge. There are a couple nice Camaros I see on my commute most mornings. I've been to quite a few of the Detroit proving grounds, but still haven't been to GMs. Am in the process of moving just down the road, though, and as such hoping we get into more GM programs at work and I get to play there sometime!

The reflection from your dash looks similar to the diffuser the GTLM cars use.

The truck dash reflection makes a sweet race car diffuser.

there was going to be a non boring thread with a half hour of a c7z vs a c8 at 100+mph, and c8's with cracked wheels, but the other forum members ruined it before it got started.

So, correct, keep yawning everyone. The good footage wont be shared now.

There is/was no footage of such an encounter. The engineers would be fired on the spot. Not hard to find out who was driving which mule at the time. They are not out to race people in C7ís
