I gladly do without driving a nice car for being able to surf the best waves on the planet . With all that said, love cars and excited to see the C8. Really it isn't different than admiring the C2 when it was released when I was 7 years old . I couldn't own a C2 then, choose not to own a C8 now. Regardless, love cars.

I壇 rather drive a C8 than surf. But kudos to you for following your dream.

That wave is epic - whoooooohooo - now that makes driving a Corvette no big loss.Perfect left! Is that you lining up that bowl? You dont see many waves like that in Oceanside.

Because I'm actually living my life instead of wetting my Depends and giving myself hypertension over the reveal of a car, I can't possibly be an above average Corvette lover? This is rich.

I feel like the people standing in line for concert tickets or Star wars when the first new one came out in 98 or 99 whenever it was. Very excited to see and but a car that's a revolution and not an evolution. I love all generations of Corvette, but this is something different for me. I get it that it means something different to every one.
