    Thanks Jack. Where did you find those prices? Actually they aren't quite as much as I had figured they would be.

    Still ugly as hell. And with all the creases and such it looks like something out of a Transformers movie.

    Sorry Dean and others that own the C7.

    Don’t be. Love the performance of the entire C7 line but the “lines” have gotten too wacky for my tastes on the high-end models.

    Couldn't agree more.

    Kinda sad to this old guy.

    When are they coming out with a mid-engined 'vette? I thought it was soon?

    They keep saying the 2020 will be but so far I have seen nothing that was official from General Motors.

    I've read articles and Press Releases about the soon to be mid engine Vette going back to 1970.

    That's almost 50 years ago.

    I take away appears to be,

    This guy is still guessing I think. This is the first I have heard about them using the flat plane crank also.

    This video is about the Chevy 2020 Mid-engine Corvette. This is no longer just a rumor. Find out everything we know about this amazing new car from Chevrolet.

    They were testing one of the pre-production mules at the Nurburgring a couple weeks ago. It’s going to happen.

    Dean,

    The car has amazing performance but I just really don't care for the looks.

    Many people hated the C7 when it came out, and many still do! But they’ve sold a ton of them and today’s designers are beginning to care less and less about what the older guys like. It’s just a fact. They want to build cars that they like and traditions be damned.

    Amen Bill.

    I've been procrastinating about buying one for a couple of years. I figure if I procrastinate long enough I'll be too old and I'll just forget about it.
