I'm obviously talking about Connoll Chevrolet, not Kerbeck.

Thanks for the clarification.

Yes, it does seem kind of weird for a dealer to pay to show product from a company.

I was invited to a new model Ferrari reveal cocktail party at a dealer. They demo'd it for us, top up and down etc, then they started it up (indoors) and revved it up to the amusement of almost all.
TIP: Don't stand behind the car! Some in their finest were blasted with some condensation out the exhaust. .

surprised Rydell (top 15 in 2019 so far) doesn't have anything going.... And, 8/1 and 8/2 is a Thursday and Friday.... odd choice of scheduling to bring people into your dealership.


ahhh. Read the previous posts. My take is that Rydell saw the dates, the cost, and said... No thanks.

Fill out the form at the bottom of the page to be on our newsletter mailing list to stay up to date on the C8 Corvette.

To learn how to get on the C8 Purchase list, call 1-800-578-3883 or fill out the form below. Calling this number or filling out the form does not mean you are on the list. You will get further instructions on how to be placed on the list.

May I suggest that one piece of this thread could be inaccurate, and that is I am hearing that only one C8 will be part of each C8 traveling display show. GM has yet to officially comment, but a little birdie did so some whispering.

Of course I would drive 1,000 miles myself to see just one C8 if that were my best alternative to see it up close and personal.

Hmm that is interesting, as, if they are revealing 2 different roof options, would think both versions would be making an appearance to show them both of... does this mean only one?

Well you guys are lucky. Got an e-mail from my dealer today( the largest one in our state) and they are going to have one for viewing on November 21. I'm sorry but this is Minnesota. It could be zero degrees and a foot of snow!!! Thank you GM.

Would be great if this is the case. I would think they wouldn't turn anyone away who came to take a look.

Hi John,
Do you know how I can get on the event list at Connell? I normally go to a different dealer so I'm not on their email list. Is there someone at the dealer that I can email?
Thanks
