Default Tustin???

The reveal is in Tustin? Any further insight? So much for a Sunset overlooking the Ocean Reveal...

A few people have mentioned that there are some large airfield/hanger type places that might be the setting for the reveal. Jet fighter style if you will.

Down there it's all one big massive city surrounded by freeways and malls. Corona, Ontario, Tustin, L.A.. They are all just copy cat "administrative districts" that run into each other.

Tustin is a very strange city to host it.

If they want to go after big $ current mid-engine owners- should have been more upscale location-
  1. Newport Beach
  2. Laguna Beach
  3. Yorba Linda
  4. Dana Point
  5. Irvine

It's not an active duty Marine Air Station anymore. But a lot of the cool Marine stuff remains, including huge WWII blimp hangers.

They gonna kick off Race Wars for the next Fast & Furious franchise?

You donít need to be Skank or from Michigan to know that this reveal will occur in Dana Point at the Monarch. A precursor may happen in Tustin to show off the localís Corvettes.

Skank is on a secret mission back in the Midwest. Iím sure he will have something to add later.

BTW, what happened to post #8 from the fellow in Swartz Creek, Michigan that disappeared regarding the post in Dana Point. What happened to it???????

Orange County, CA is my backyard. And when GM announced the location of the reveal, this was the first location that came to my mind. The old blimp hangars at the Tustin Air Base is perfect! There's plenty of room and the location is epic! If indeed this is the location?.....

A precursor?

Looks like it's a bit more than that - i.e. it looks like it's the actual reveal:

And just where in beautiful Tustin will this be held. About the only reason to have this reveal in California at 8:00 pm is to have a great sunset over the ocean. Tustin does not contribute this to the equation. Is a great shot with antique jets in the background a classic setting to a new Corvette?

As a matter of fact, if you pay real close attention to those "Real People Not Actors" ads by Chevrolet, it is filmed in a Hangar.....

^^^ Good lord.

Maybe. The worst ad campaign ever devised--That's actually done immeasurable damage to the brand. And they actually lied.

Pathetic beyond belief.

Dam there goes my theory of Area 51 reveal. Tustin never even heard of that hanger.
