    I don't know where they were headed, or coming from, but I saw an estimated 65 or 70 'Vettes heading north on I-75 Thursday around noon as I was heading to the south end of Corbin.

    C8 is on tour and currently is at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green. I drove over this morning to see it in person:

    Overall, I like the new body styling except for the rear lights and the black portion lower half of the rear end. Both are a carry-over from the C7. I'd rather the entire rear end be the same color.

    Not a car guy at all but i don't care for the C8. I agree with Spirit above in that it looks like a generic super car.

    I watched the debut program. They detailed quite a bit without going into every specification. There will be a new base engine called LT2 with 495 HP and 470 ft lb of torque with an 8 speed DCT, new interior, it will have Michelin PS4S 245 in the front and 305 in the back, and will not see a large spike in price.

    I am disappointed in the power output but am impressed by price. Overall appearance is better than I expected.

    I am looking forward to seeing it in person. I still do not like the appearance of a stationary C7 but find them striking when they are in motion. The orange car probably looks better dirty than clean as the color seems to vary between metallic orange and burnt orange...I prefer the latter .

    I think the Camaro probably will see a sales spike. I've said before and will reiterate that I still have not "fallen in love" with the C7 design. I think it looks nice on the road but when I see one parked it does not elicit strong appreciation of its aesthetic.

    Looking out on the fenders when driving is similar I think to the C3, as is the general layout. But there's something about V8 upfront, rear wheel drive, and manual transmission. That they managed to balance it pretty darn well was the all encompassing aspect. I bought the C7 especially when I did due to Chevrolet's salesmanship of it being the culmination and the end of an era...that C8 would be a different car.

    Well, it will not be a completely new car as C7 was. I think there will be some carryover items such as LT1. Leaf springs? I do wonder.

    I've always been partial to the round lights. The last design change seemed to adopt a variation of the Camaro tail lights.
    I agree. Round lights and pipes would be better. That back end looks like a generic "supercar".
