Thumbs up Jay Leno Garage First Look: 2014 Corvette Stingray

Jay takes a first look at the all-new Corvette with Ed Welburn at Browns Classic Auto in Scottsdale, AZ and drives it right out of the showroom

I was wondering when Jay Leno would get his hands on one. Great video, even if there were a lot of inaccuracies, which I'm surprised Welburn didn't catch.

And God this thing sounds amazing.

I just realized the red Nike golf shirts the Corvette team wears are the same shirts we wear at work.

Yep many of the cars we thought of as fast in the mid 70's can be beat by the average econobox of today...

I'm still trying to watch the video. Wife keeps turning on American Idol. I'm watching it during the commercials.

I did see where jay slipped up and said six speed.

I can squeeze two in the trunk of my G35 coupe so I'd be willing to bet you wouldn't have any trouble with the C7.

That was fun to watch. I'll take a silver one. I guess the only thing I don't care for is the Stingray emblem on the side. Maybe it will look better in person.

It still to me sounds like something scrapped or just barely tapped as Jay drove off the little turn table to the ground. :sad:
