  • Little molded car statues

    Cant remember what they are called. The small C8 "models" they give you when you buy a C8? Do they still send these?

    I think so ...

    For some odd reason, it is delivered to Corvette Owners months after they've forgotten that they exist.

    Why ... I don't know.

    Maybe they send each of them separately on their own Cargo Ship from China

      John reported Harlan Charles said they would be sent to all 2021 purchasers. I suspect the models are made in Asia, and that there are several thousand of them stuck on a cargo ship waiting to unload in California.

        It totally baffles me why something like that couldn't be made in the USA for an American Sports Car

        It's Molding Machine, Paint and Padded Box ... Mattel and Hasbro has been doing for decades

          I'm willing to bet nearly 100% of Mattel and Hasbro toys are made in Asia, not the US. It all comes down to money.

              Many call them “speed shape models” though there are other names too. They are a gift, our looking a gift horse in the mouth. How about if we know they are coming at some point and when they do they will be a delightful and unexpected surprise since it had been many months since our car arrived.

                  I like the Die Cast models too. I wonder if there is a TOP brand, not a cheap look a like

                  Do you guys get any accessory credit to the parts department when you buy your C8 ??

                    Hi,

                    As a metric, my 2021 was delivered in Mid-March. I received the matching color model from GM in late August. So it was almost 6 months interval as one data point.

                        Just think Happy Puppies ... 😂

                        I had dozens of FexEx boxes sitting in my garage for months before I even had a Car.

                          Got my C8 in late March. No model as of yet. I’m sure it’ll come eventually.

                              GM will give you 20,000 GM rewards points. (Actually, they're changing their points system, and it will soon be 2000 points but the same cash value) worth $20 that you can use for parts or service at participating dealers. Anything other than that is up to the individual dealer.
