I will own one- going to let first year run through. I just purchased a 2SS/RS in anticipation of doing this. Hoping the performance editions are not far behind the initial release.

I might do the same but so I can save enough to sell the SS and get one!

I wish I had the cash to keep both!

There will be at least one in Southside VA starting the 19th. I'm hoping for a real mild winter so I can enjoy it some. I'd hate to have to wait until April to do any real driving with it.

Southside VA has only been wet so far, but I think that is going to change today at some point. Oh well. I will drive it when i can during the winter and nearly everyday once warmer weather gets here.

I'm hoping this is the first of many topless days here in Southside VA. Summer can't get here soon enough!!!

Haha nope, nor emporia where I work. I actually have yet to see another on the road anywhere. I'm sure I will once it warms up for good.

I hear that Mr. J. Allen down in Emporia may have recently gotten one. (I grew up near there!)

Boyd Chevy sold a "used" laguna blue one in December that had less than 400 miles on it. I forget who they said they sold it to, but my salesman told me that whoever bought is planning on reselling it come spring. So right now, mine is the only one trolling through the middle of Emporia when I drive it to work, which has only been Monday this week on account of the snow and crap on the roads.

You know, it is a very small world. As soon as I replied to you earlier, I received a call from Mr. Allen asking about the A/S tires I put on my C7. Comes to find out, the company I work for uses his company for service work. We had a nice conversation about how great this vehicle is and we are planning on getting together once the weather breaks for a photo shoot!

Excellent! It is indeed a small world. I hope to get back down there to visit and tune a car either this weekend or the following weekend myself.

If you feel like you'd like to see it on the dyno to see what it makes (or to help it make more!) feel free to give us a ring at the number in my signature.

Random but, I don't know how you get from McK to Emp and back.... there really is no GOOD road for that. Do you go 40 to 95 or 85 to 712 to 58?

That's cool, thanks.

I take 40 to 95. Straight shot, over and down. Kind of boring in the Corvette (no turns), however, once summer hits, I'm contemplating taking some back roads to work just so I can mix it up some. Maybe run down to Dewitt then down to 58 or something like that.

A quick photo shoot with Mr. Allen here in Emporia. His 90/500 Premier Edition is beautiful.

SUPER nice! I was down in Emporia this weekend visiting friends, working on a turbo car, and dropping by on my dad over in Lawrenceville on his birthday.

The blue looks nice but that darker red and black really look good to my eye. Enjoy; that's a nice ride!
