    There is some non-Coronavirus related news out there!!!! And this is good news if we look past some the union and now coronavirus delays in production. Either way, if there wasn't strong demand then there wouldn't be a story like this! Good job GM!

    Saw a truckload of C8s heading north on US61 in Missouri a couple of days ago. Coincidentally, just north of Bowling Green, Mo.
    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    The hinky thing is that most dealers for months have already said they were only taking 2021 orders, like Kerbeck (nation's largest).

    I'm just happy to enjoy my 2019 Grand Sport for a couple of years when we see what new versions and features appear later in the C8, including hopefully employee prices. My 2019 with a front engine, real manual transmission, and fully retractable soft top is a KEEPER, as it's a truly excellent Corvette from an era that will never to return. But having a C8, with its own excellence for a new era, is a definite goal to get.

    Alas, all is uncertain, which current times help to remind us.

    I feel like there was a similar story when the C7 debuted. Not to throw shade at the high demand of the C8 - the car is a home run (assuming no reliability issues).
