          There have been many posted earlier warnings on this forum for all those who are planning to buy a C7, beware of upcoming constraints. Jag has surfaced some specific info. Thank you!

          Maybe Rick is knowing some of the other details of upcoming C7 constraints?

            Remind me, what status code do you need to reach to know it’s going to be built as ordered and constraints are not a factor?

                    I believe he was told that convertibles orders would end soon, but was not given a date.

                      Great time to get a discounted 2019 C7Z06 which is by far and away the best Corvette ever made to date . Many improvements over the 2015's in the tune and the ride and other improvements and I'm quite sure the 2019 is a faster car . I was able to get 18 percent off MSRP and 0 percent interest off. My next Corvette will be the Z06 C8. I will wait till the C8 Z06 it comes out then I will make a move. I think the C8 will have less power to weight than the current car.

                        Wow! 18% off Msrp and 0% interest is amazing. I got 12% off on a custom build. They had a similar spec on the lot but it had the tan interior and I really wanted black. All my cars are black on black. So, I just ordered one. Plus, maybe they will still have the corvette loyalty discount which was $3k in April. Not sure what June will have when I take possession.
                        Still kicking myself I didn’t get the ZR1. I was getting 8k off the msrp, but just couldn’t justify a $130k car as a 4th car. Plus, I really didn’t want to be negative equity.
                        Cant wait for the C8 in Z06 or Grand Sport. I will definitely be a buyer when they come out.

                          I found the great deal on a in stock car in December. Just got lucky and found just what I would have ordered. I added the 2300 and headers to the Z06. Got 672 rwhp on the M7 and 650 rwhp on the A8 both more output than the ZR1.
                          The A8 is much better than expected and does super fast shifts fast at any speed. My A8 had the GM low viscosity fluid service which really quicked the feel. No shutter it is a sweet tranny. Very quick car like 9 seconds in the 138-140 mph quick.

                            Last year I had extra cash come from selling some land in instead of dumping money on a ZR1. I bought more land instead. Just broke ground last week on several 3-4 acre home sites. 1 home in is motion just ordered the trusses today with plans from Lincoln county to help bring city water and sewer along with 7k-10k city size lots on other ground across the road. May build 30 or more homes in the next few years
                            this is one of 5-6 of the top spots with 360 degree view this is just a few miles off the Oregon Coast hwy 20 and Hwy 101.
                            I partnered business with a Contractor who builds really nice homes. Signs will be on hwy 20 real soon! They will sell quick.
