Default How I felt getting a reveal ticket. Plus Meet & Greet prior to the event

I知 totally ecstatic today, couldn稚 believe my eyes. I was emailed my invitation code and registered for the reveal next month in Tustin.
I知 not making a video to share my excitement but my heart is racing and I知 just very happy with the invite. I知 bringing my Canon 5D to take some great pics and I値l share when I return, I知 sure the forum will be flooded with pics around then.

Who is going?!

Is there an 徹fficial or unofficial CorvetteForum meet prior to the event, I figured it値l be cool to get together. Brining the wife and the Z06 probably over the C4s down to Tustin from the Ventura County area.

See you there! I'll make sure to look at it twice as hard for those deemed not worthy.

How'd you get invited? Did your dealer put you in, or are you one of the locals bringing a car?

Nice! Have fun!

So, as I thought, the reveal event will last about an hour or less (8-9) most likely with some executive banter, followed by the showing of the car, then time for some pics/videos for the media and bloggers before ushering everyone out.

Enjoy the event for all of us. We'll look forward to your photos.
Puzzling that GM picket the undistinguished suburb of Tustin for such an epochal event. Flint ... St. Louis .... Bowling Green ..... annnnd Tustin???

Congrats. I also received my invitation via email today. Same as yours. I live in greater L.A., so it's an easy drive. The reveal is from 8-9 PM, but you can bet that it will go past 9. Yesterday i read an article about the 4 groups of people invited to the reveal. Here is the link:

There is a huge blimp hangar left from the old air station in Tustin. Very iconic and I guess they will use it for more drama with the setting. I've been their once it is impressive and can see how they would use it to maximum effect. Only question is they can easily have hundreds in that facility wonder what the final number of invitees will be.

Technically, there are two blimp hangars at MCAS Tustin. Generally, only the North/South one is used. I visited the base often, usually for model airplane contests. I've been privileged to fly model airplanes inside the N/S hangar.

I agree, this will be an iconic venue for the reveal.

Make sure your Vette is polished up. As the article stated, the local enthusiasts were asked to display their cars.

The corvetteblogger said "GM has made approximately 500 tickets available for Chevrolet dealers to give out to its customers." so with all the other media, VIPs, maybe 1000?
