New England - The Three Season states for C7 enthusiasts(and other Corvettes)

New England is great for many things, but for a lot of us high performance enthusiasts, we are limited with our time during the year with our pampered rides.

I've opened up this thread for those of you who want to talk about all things C7 Corvette related to New England (as well as other gen Corvettes) When the Stingray is made available later this year, this thread will serve as a meeting place to discuss your purchase, future purchases(mods) and interests in having and organizing meetups for the following spring (once we have enough interest in the area) to show off your car.

I don't have one at this time, but I'm hoping in a couple of years to have one in my stable. I hope no one is offended that I started this thread, just thought I'd get the ball rolling. Looking forward to seeing one in the wild. I'm going to try to get to the NY auto show to get a glimpse (and a few pics )

I'm here =P

I just feel naked without a C7

You might think about a sticky info for each member and which state they come from in the future.

Hello all! I just traded in my Camaro for a 2008 Z06 so I am new to the corvette community. I am down in the Boston/Plymouth area and looking for a shop to upgrade my interior. Anyone know a trustworthy shop?

Greetings All,
Not much activity here. We'll have to fix that. Waiting on my C7, about 8 weeks out according to my dealer.

Dealer says my car "should" arrive on Feb. 26th. That's good and bad news. Good news, it means just nine weeks from the time the order was placed. Bad news, there is a coastal storm forecast for Wednesday.
A friend and I just finished detailing my 2008 Corvette which is getting traded in. Hate to drive either car if the roads are wet or snow covered. Might have to leave the car one extra day at the dealer.

More bad news..................

In an earlier post I mentioned good and bad news about my Stingray. It turns out it's mostly bad news. The scheduled delivery date of Feb. 26th was a bust. No car. Same for the 27th and again on the 28th. No call from the dealer to explain the delay so I called on the 28th and spoke with the service manager. He was helpful and explained that deliveries can happen on a Saturday. That's good news. The bad news, there is no one available to inspect and prep the car on a Saturday so it would wait until Monday, Mar. 3rd at the earliest.
I'm still waiting on a Lime Rock Green coupe, Z51, A6, Mag Ride, NPP and NAV. The interior is 2LT in Kalahari.
Oh, there is a snow storm forecast for Monday with possible 3-6 inches of the white crap.

My Stingray Arrived................

Got a call on Monday (March 3rd) from my sales guy saying my Stingray was on the car carrier and he was heading outside to snap a few photos. By the time I got to the dealer the car was in the prep area in need of some detailing.
Because we had snow on Sunday the roads were messy and I decided to wait one more day to take delivery. I picked up the car on Tuesday, March 4th.
I'll try and post a photo now but if I have trouble there will be a short delay until I figure out how to post to this site.
Just tried and it wants a HTTP site. That means Photo Bucket. Tomorrow is another day.
Photo was cropped and now fits.

March is over.....finally

March went out with one more sucker punch in my area. We had rain, then light snow, more rain and finally, sleet around 4:30 PM. I'm happy to say goodbye to March. April 1st looks much better, sunny with a temp in the low 50's.
I've invited two guys with new Stingrays to join me on Wednesday for some fender hanging and a photo opportunity. If they show up I'll post pics!

I just picked up my Arctic white Z51 coupe this past Thursday - just under 3 months from order to delivery. Before taking delivery, I had the dealer (MacMulkin) change the tires from summer only to the Michelin all season Pilots. I couldn't imagine being limited to driving the car in only warm conditions without the hassle of keeping an extra set of mounted tires. So far, i am very happy with the all seasons - although my driving has been limited to "break in" mode. The car is so sweet, and is truly a work of art.
