    Ordered a New C7 Last Month

    I ordered a new 3LT Grand Sport in Sterling Blue last month. It was supposed to be built the second week of January but found out it was built last week. Considering I ordered it December 12th I'm pretty impressed with the quick turn around. Can hardly wait. Now I have to sell something to make room.

    Unbelievable. It's here already. Ordered 12/3 and delivered 1/4 and I was worried about constraints and allocations. Just how bad is the risk to the tires by picking this up and driving it home when it's under 40 degrees? We won't be above 40 until Monday.

    Congrats. There's no risk to the tires, summer performance tires are just hard and slick in colder temps.

    It just has the goodyear runflats right? If so you will be fine. You shouldn't be getting on it too hard yet anyway. But those tires will be rock hard like JD said and remind you that the traction control works if you goose the throttle any at low speeds when its cold out. I think Michelin's are worse and shouldn't be driven at all when its cold.

    As long as it's not a Z07, you'll be fine over 20 degrees. Just don't do any hard acceleration because traction will be limited for sure.

    These guys have been very cool with me. They let me come down and unwrap it and are letting me store it there in a heated area until I take delivery Monday. I decided I didn't want to take a chance with the weather today and I think that was a good decision. Pic straight out of the wrapper.

    Damn that looks good, maybe I should have waited to pick up the Camaro to get a ride in it. I really like the color with those wheels.

    Thanks for the compliments. This color is going to turn out to be a half year run as it has already been discontinued starting next month. Most are ordered with black wheels but I didn't like them with this color.

    A couple quick pics I took Monday when we picked it up. I can't believe how smooth this rides and I was worried it would be harsher than my f-body. LOL

    A good friend of mine just got a grand sport on Monday. They are really impressive cars. It is amazing how much of a difference there is looks wise from a GS to a stingray.

    Good to see the C7 is already treating you well, can't wait to see it in a couple weeks. I can't stop looking at that color, is it available on the grand sport or Z06 too?

    The Z28 is has been doing great, I think the alternator thought about going out on the way home but then decided it enjoyed it's life and continued to charge. Now I just gotta get the FRC sold so I have room for it.

    That Z28 saw more rain this week than it had the entire time I had it. Speaking of rain I still only have about 40 miles on this car because of all this damn rain this weekend. Sterling Blue is available on Z06 as well but the last day of ordering it on a C7 is sometime mid Feb with early April being the last production run of that color.

    I love the "Should have done this" posts by someone w/ a differing opinion that also didn't pick out/purchase the car. Always a cool guy.

    I like the silver wheels just fine, especially with that color. These are my favorite finish on the grand sport wheels though.

    For myself, I'd rock the hell out of that silver one you posted.
