    As a teenager back in 1973 that two rotor corvette was a personal favorite. I believe now it has a mazda two rotary engine.

      Thank you SgtMajUSMC (Retired)! Looks like a golf bag or two would fit into the trunk of mid engine XP-897. Did they also have its frunk open at any time? If so, how would you please describe its size?

      If the 2020 ME Corvette has as much storage room as the XP-897, worries about adequate storage capacity for the C8 are also a non issue.

      Thanks for all the pictures of the other great cars!

        I spent a fair amount of time around it two different times and the frunk was not opened. It didn’t occur to me to ask them to open it and I chatted with them for a decent bit too.

        So many beautiful, stunning cars there.
