    The wife would let me go see it the other day, so maybe later this week. Just hope they made it so us taller guys can get in it.

    I'm not sure they are out yet. Will hopefully stop by the Chevy dealer this Friday. last one I tried to get into was not a great experience. Wife said I could get one if I could get into it. Took about 5 minute to fold my 6'5" into it but though that would would for every day driving.

    Fred I think it is going to be several several months before they will be in dealerships. Chevy is going to take a few around in a mobile showroom. I seriously doubt there will be that many to look at since I predict the entire years production will be sold out.

    The top removes, you might stick up above the windshield a bit. That $60,000.00 is for the base model, if you want to go faster it's going to cost.

    With base hovering around 490 HP and a screaming 0-60 in under three seconds the need for more speed would be reserved only for the most demanding.

    This is a really good view of the new Vette with Jay Leno. Take a look, if you didn't want one after looking at this you will. The video is hosted by Leno and the chief engineer of the new Vette.

    I'm finding the generosity of forum members somewhat lacking. Why has no one offered to gift me the 60 K as yet ?. Scheeese, you'd think all y'all were as poor as I am.
