Default Orange County reveal location mind warp

The exact Sunset time at the Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, CA is precisely 8:00:00 pm on 7-18-2019. The same exact time as the C8 reveal clock time. It calculates to exactly 8:00:00 from the www.sunrise-sunset.org schedule on that date and time right down to the second. Pretty unbelievable! That resort also has Cadillac as a partner. Food for thought on the Grand Daddy of all resorts in Orange County. A sunset reveal on the coastline would be incredible.

Still trying to get a ticket :P Although if you just drop the $800 for the night, could possibly wonder over to the reveal? (where on the premise are they actually doing it?)

Don't know for sure where the reveal is. Monarch Beach Resort is a very elegant location that makes sense for a high brow reveal that the C8 ZORA should get. The fact that Cadillac is a partner with the resort was really a eye opener. And it is amazing that the sunset just happens to set at the same exact time as the reveal time.

Monarch Beach Resort does not look like a place to present a bargain sports car so this can't be right.
It looks more like a place for a Ferrari fighter.

And at some point, this thread will be the 8th thread from the top.

Which of course will seal it, Illuminati-like.

It really makes no sense to have the reveal at the late hour of 8:00 pm Pacific time and 11:00 pm Eastern time other than to utilize the beautiful Sunset as a backdrop for dramatic effect during the Live Streaming of the reveal. The East coast viewers have to wait for the California sunset to give it a epic image that will certainly look incredible with the orange-red sky. Reveal car in Torch Red! Oh ya!

The reveal of the new ME C8 at SUNSET is a bad omen. SUNRISE would be appropriate for the dawn of a new generation.

I have been to that resort for a business meeting - its very nice. A revel on the 3rd fairway with the ocean in the background would be spectacular at or near sunset.

Hmm - 2 miles out of my way home from work off the 5 South. May have to crash that party on the way home that day.

I can finally disclose----actually, its symbolic of the end of an era of front engine corvettes at sunset. the last c7 will be delivered to the charity bidder, then the exact same amount of Monarch butterflies will be released. I cant tell you about the me reveal though, its still top secret. no not serious
