I am going to go out on a limb here and say that I do not think we need a new thread every day telling us when the reveal will happen. I think we get it.

I'm game - I've been closely following the C8 development since the beginning. I was daily scanning for C8 updates when it was still part of the C7 forum, so I am pretty stoked about the reveal in 8 days.

Thanks for doing the math there, OP. I don't think I could have handled it. Too complicated.

What I'm not sure I can handle is the void of real information in the next week driving the need to fill it with incredibly stupid anticipatory speculations between now and then.

I can see where the styling would appeal to non-Corvette owners and folks who dislike the Corvette in favor of foreign sport cars. Maybe that is their target market? As a Corvette owner, the camo prototype styling is hideous in my opinion. Iím sure I would like the performance but not sure Iíll ever be able to stomach the way it looks much like I cringe when I see the taillights in the C7 to this day. It feels good to have a Corvette in the Driveway or Garage. I donít think I would even feel Iike I had a Corvette.

I have had 21 lifetime Vettes. All with the long hood, short deck. All have been manual. At 72 I am ready for something new. The C8 will be it.

This is such a tired response. I guess since the first corvette had an inline 6 that the rest were not corvettes either, right?

If it wasn't for another member's "7 more days" post, I wouldn't even know.

I think I need more reminders; at least one per day.

Hahahahaha

Is it really much of a reveal surprise we have just about undressed the camo to the hilt. I hope will be a home run so can get a good trade in maybe.
