    I had the same feeling leading up to the day I traded in my C7 and picked up my C8. That feeling eased somewhat as I drove off in my C8. Your color is special!

      Time flies when you are having fun. I remember when you posted those pictures that day. It is such a pretty color. I wish that had been the new 2022 orange.

        I'm honestly glad it's not. I'd want to sell my '21 and start all over! OTOH, Brenda really loves this color, so she might let me do it.

            Bob,

            As much as you've enjoyed your C7, as we did our '17 GS...... and I really hated to see it go, you will likely be like the majority of us who aren't looking back as this C8 is stunning. Every time I drive it ( the C8 ) I can't even imagine missing our formerly loved, GS. This C8 is so much more !!!

            It's exciting every time out. Hope to see you again at O.C. in October with your new ride ! We're already booked at the Clarion.

            3LT Coupe, Z51 Torch Red with two toned Red/black interior. 5VM visible CF ground effects, Carbon Flash wheels, engine appearance package and Carbon Fiber interior trim. Mag Ride control. Red Calipers. VQK Splash Guards. Carbon flash mirrors and spoiler.

              I plan to be there! If I have to choose one of the other, no question it's the C8. But I wish I could keep both.

                ^^^ We had those thoughts too....... my wife was more hung up on the C7 GS. I also loved EVERYTHING about it. But had we kept both, ( which wouldn't have happened in the real world) when it came to time as to which car to drive to current things, we would always chose the C8.

                Perhaps you remember our C7 from OC last time..... See you in OC if not at Norm's house before then.....

                        That Orange is the best orange ever on a Corvette. And, good choice on the red mist (mee too) You are going to love the C8 and the red mist . You will have great memories of that C7 and more great memories in a totally different car. Good Luck

                            I'm planning to come up to Lewes with some other folks from my club. Hopefully in my C8! Mike says he thinks I'll get it by the end of May.
