Your Lottery Z06 Christmas Present

Tired of waiting and want a long shot to get your Z06? I have two friends who between them have won three new Corvettes. Is this your Christmas self-present? https://www.midenginecorvetteforum.c...iversary-coupe. Might you be the third friend who wins a Corvette lottery by buying just one ticket? Of course still going to be many months until you are driving it, but if you win a heck of lot cheaper than your/my other plan.

      Speaking of C8 "Mechanic". For those of you who plan to buy first-year C8 (as a totally new car), arn't you guy nervous about dealers who have no experience on this car?

        I have a motto: "You can always recognize a pioneer. He's the guy at the side of the trail with an arrow in his back."...

        This is among the several reasons I plan to wait until at least year two.

          I agree, plus I'm more interested in the Z06 model anyway, which I believe would come after base model. Dealing with "Chevy" dealers [mechanical side] has been the worst part of owning a Corvette in the past, at least in South Florida. They treat your car, as if you handed over the keys of a pickup truck to them.

            PAul has my greatest respect in his chosen profession and as one of his many clients has become over the years a long time friend and has been servicing my corvettes for 20 years. Honest, intellegent , hard working, dilligent in his desire to deliver excellence. The entire staff at what is now called Key Chevrolet deliver excellence in a manner becoming of what I consider the best the best in the industry. I travel three states for all my service over the years because of such excellence and integrity.

            part of the reason I stick with corvettes over the years as opposed to other sports car brands is because Paul is so dedicated to his craft.

            im not sure if Ill make the trek up to the dealership for the seminar(because of special care needs program ive recently instituted for my son, saturdays are tough ) yet for those wanting to get the most detailed information on the vehicle, vehicle performance and service...Pauls seminars are awesome.

            a man with a focus specifically for GM to deliver excellence in the ownership experience.

            three new corvettes over 250 k miles on them and my corvette ownership experiences are the best bar none.

            people speak of engineering excellence and I look no further than to GM. The assets that GM puts at the disposal of corvette world class techs is unparrelled in this industry.

            the key factor in my opinion is Pauls desire and ability to properly access that information that all qualified techs have access to resolve any issue...

            As a side note please be aware Paul and I did 200 episodes of the podcast...”the corvette mechanic”

              Agree 100%. When I bought my first Corvette (out of state), I was at first concerned about where to service until someone on a forum pointed out that I was fairly local to The Corvette Mechanic himself who I knew from Corvettes at Carlisle and through your podcast (I've heard every episode). I couldn't believe my good fortune. The service experience is better than any I've ever had with attentive discussion before and after every visit. Paul leads several of these free Corvette seminars at the dealership throughout the year as well. A win all around. I hope everyone can find this level of service for their ride - or move to CT! Wait, no I can't recommend that, except for the Corvette service that is

                  Agreed! Indeed, good mechanical service can make or break the Corvette experience. My C5 has NEVER seen the inside of a dealership under my ownership of twelve years and 125k miles. My friend the original owner for 12k miles took it to his dealer for two oil changes, but no mechanical work.

                  I bought the car without a plan for service and repairs. Luckily, I ran accross "Scottie's Southwest Corvettes" after getting the car and he took very good care of it. Sadly, he passed away, but his mechanic Bruce continued Corvette service by opening his own shop here in Albuquerque.

                    Paul’s the best. Before I found an outstanding Tech at a different Chevy service department, I had this repeat problem with my C6 that was, according to the first Tech, “the way the car was designed.” I went up to Paul at a NCM Bash, to his “walk in help session” many years ago, and within two minutes, he not just knew what was the cause, but told me how I could simply fix it in a minute — which I went home and easily did.

                    Also have friends who have been able to get Paul’s help through his NCM walk in sessions — fixing their C6 & C7’s too (he also is extremely C4 and C5 knowledgeable).

                        I am not concerned, but then again I started out by talking with other Corvette owners to find the best servicing department. We need to do our due diligence, just as we do when we picked an accountant, financial adviser, etc. I like this thread that John created.

                        https://www.midenginecorvetteforum.c...ing-department

                        Having once chosen a great servicing department and a Tech, if that Tech runs across something that they have not seen before, there is somewhere around Detroit, a Tech help line for every GM Tech to call GM Master Techs to get personal assistance on a unique issue.
