In the off topic lounge lol but finally got to see a C8Z in person. Almost didn’t realize it was a Z and then pulled over to wait for him to come by so I could snap a quick photo. Definitely look much better in person than press photos. I live in Bowling Green where they’re built but this is the first Z I’ve seen.

I love these cars. If they came in a manual, I'd be pining hard for one. First time I saw a C8, it was wrapped in bright blue and I thought it was a Lambo right up until I saw "Corvette" written along the back.

One of our detailers owned one. He loved the thing but only complaint was the lack of a manual. If our work didn't giving him more than he owed for it to trade-in, he would've kept it. Good for him though because he now owns one of his dream cars which is an M3

Pretty good shots for just catching him on the fly! How'd it sound? Love American cars utilizing a flat plane crank, but I don't think I'd want to own one again lol

C8s look pretty good in photos... in person there's always a weird angle that ruins the entire car. It's usually the rear end and back quarter panel, that is just so disappointing.

There was a C8Z in my track session back in April. It was stupid fast and would lose me completely after like 2 turns. I’m going to go back and review my footage to see if I have anything on it.

There was a red one last time I was out, wasn't a Z though based on the wheels and lack of spoiler.

The owner’s wife/girlfriend/side piece called it a Z06 and said they just got it a couple days before when I talked to her. Honestly, I’m not really a corvette guy, so I wouldn’t know the difference, I could be mistaken. ¯\(ツ)

I’m fairly sure they’re not released yet so it seems unlikely lol
