I live in So Cal, drive a C7 with a manual gear box, (my 11th Corvette) and am one of 57 owners that are going to the reveal. Most of us live in California, and our names were submitted, for the most part, by dealers.

I can tell you this, A week after I signed up for the event GM WAS indeed snooping around my social media pages including a LinkedIn. I got notification of them snooping.

[QUOTE= I actually credit the Corvette for motivating me through school, college and to later start a small business which I still own 18 years later. The Corvette was always the carrot that my mom reminded me I could have if I studied and worked hard it could one day be mine. So I have that...oh yeah, and a kick a** C7 in my garage that I can to drive to work! [/QUOTE]

I have the same story with my folks telling me the same thing. Graduated from college on a Friday, started my business the following Monday in August of 1980. Operated for over 34 years until the marketplace let me know loud & clear that I should no longer occupy a space so I retired in early 2015. Got my '13 GS vert as a PREtirement gift!

Where in Tustin exactly is it, or is that still a secret? Not that I’m going anyway even though I live and work 15 minutes from Tustin and are on my 19th Corvette.

Here's a redacted email I recieved after inquiring how to get a pass...so it looks like my luck is pretty good!

"Hi ######$#, thanks for the email!


This event is open to the public. We are sending out invites later today and I've added you to the list so look out for that email.


Thanks again!


Dave

Corvette Manager
Proud to be the world's largest Corvette Dealership for 25 straight years!"

like I said GM isn't turning perspective buyers away! I've been dealing with F.C. Kerbeck since the 70's trust me they're in business to make money. Too turn business away would be asinine! Maybe you never been to the AC store it's small there's no where to hide a car from their customers that are buying cars and trucks.

I recommend anyone intrested go you'll be welcomed!

I've owned 19 Corvettes over the last 13 years, I'm the C7 & C8 Event Correspondent for this forum as well as Event Correspondent for another forum, and I write some for CorvetteBlogger.com...I didn't receive an invite to the Thursday night reveal either. I'm okay with that and I still plan to order a 2020 Corvette. I realize that everyone that's owned a number of Corvettes over the years can't possibly all be invited. And I'm okay with that. No one was intentionally not invited (well, except for maybe a few YouTubers that is...).
