    Welcome to Estados Unidos Americanos! I've worked a lot with folks from the UK, especially England and Canada, during my years in the Army. You all have my respect and admiration and you are...

    Welcome! I'm in Oklahoma, but came here from Tacoma ... and have a Torch Red '95 coupe ... and my name is Bob. Coincidence? Who knows?
  3. Speaking of pictures, although unrelated to the...

    Speaking of pictures, although unrelated to the C8 specifically, did anyone notice in the latest issue of Motor Trend with all the C8 stories that their feature on the '55 Chevy only had photos of a...
  4. News: It is curious that the C8 has generated so much...

    It is curious that the C8 has generated so much less discussion than C7 did. I remember us picking it apart on every detail, especially the "Camaro" taillights. But once they hit the bricks, most...

    As much as I like the rendering, I'm not going to get too attached to it. I found a picture of the Jaguar C-X75 concept car that shared a lot of lines with this C8 version. In fact, the wheels are...
  6. Overlap

    My understanding is that they will have a production overlap with C7 and C8 being marketed simultaneously, beginning in late 2018, although I don't know how long they will continue the practice.

    First time

    I've had Corvettes for years but never joined a club or went to an event like this. Since I live only 152 miles from Eureka Springs, we decided to show up, even though we didn't know anyone and...
  8. So far, so good ...

    It's pretty clear this is not just a mule testing out internal components, like the Camaro Chevy used on the C5 chassis. It's the actual C8! That being said (as obvious as it may be), we still are...
  9. I think it's almost a given

    The whole industry is jumping into the hybrid and electric technology and the advantages are legion. The exotics are getting blistering performance with hybrids without losing any efficiency or fuel...
  10. Whichever way it goes, there's a bright side ...

    ... imagine all the new concept cars we'll get to admire, dislike or simply wonder about. All the ones we already have are legendary and somewhat timeless. You need not own a Corvette to enjoy it.
  11. All-new everything

    For something that so many people have waited for so long, I'm certain the designers and engineers appreciate the gravity of what they are attempting and will be able to stun the world when it rolls...
  12. Question: A little off topic, but ...

    ..I was just wondering if you are a pilot, Flyboy. I was a chopper jock in the Army long time ago. Vietnam and all that.

    And congrats on the C7. That's the same color I prefer off the new...
  13. Question: I wish I was "poor" enough to afford a C7

    I'd say we have a concensus here ... there is a strong resemblance but who gives a darn. ;LOL
  14. Question: Has anyone noted the styling similarities between C7 and F12?

    Forgive me if this has been previously discussed, but my eyes see a lot of this Ferrari in the C7. Note the snake eyes, hood vent, ducktail, roof and side window lines, rear window treatment and...
  15. You rock, Dude!

    He's coolest kid on the block now!!! :happyanim:
  16. I bought two!

    One is a 1/8 scale gunmetal coupe made by New Bright and the other is a 1/24 scale white convertible made by Maisto.
  17. Question: Thanks again.

    I will have a slight delay before I begin. My stepson wants to take it to prom, whining trans or not. Hope he doesn't increase the work load any with extra broken parts.

    I'll drop a thread once...
  18. Question: Point well taken.

    I guess I'll compare the numbers first, then pull the tranny out and compare parts and placement on the insides of both. Perhaps the pump and clutch packs on the good one will fit into the whiny one...
  19. Question: Would it function, then?

    Even without the xtra valve, would the Camaro transmission still function normally? The car is just for street and touring, not competition.
  20. Question: 4L60E interchange compatibility

    I have a '95 coupe with a whining 4L60E transmission. I have a good used 4L60E liberated from a 1997 Camaro Z-28 that threw a rod. My plan is to swap tailshafts on the two and stick the good one in...
  21. Point well taken, but ...

    ... any PROMinent ECM coder could write a new program and match it to the physical attributes of the engine. With an actual C7 on hand at their facilities, the aftermarket companies can read the...
  22. My aftermarket Targa top is garbage.

    I can't find anywhere on it who made the piece of crap, but the welds on the front brackets broke off, it doesn't fit flush to the windshield or roof mounting and it has no alignment pins at all. ...
  23. C'mon now people ...

    ... how many aftermarket mod kits are there for EVERY generation of Corvette? And how many are designed to put older design cues onto newer models, like the C1 retro-kit for the C5? How about the...
  24. It's starting to grow on me.

    I can't help ... sorry. I'm still put out by the rear window treatment, but the rest of it gets sharkier and sharkier every time I look at it. And that engine. Ooh-rah!

    I think it goes best in...
  25. It should have its own movie.

    I'm thinkin' "Corvette Summer 2."
