    Does anybody think the bigger dealers (Kerbeck, Criswell, etc.) might have C8's that people can sit in to test the fit? Ideally, one would be able to drive one a few miles too, but that seems very unlikely. I have a deposit with Mike Furman but my number will not come up until spring/summer. Given this, you think he might have a C8 I can sit in and/or drive before then?

      You wouldn't be able to drive one but you should be able to sit in it.

        I definitely saw that thread and know where they are. I may go to one in January in PA. I sat in one in Carlisle, but the line was so long, I felt pressure to get out within a minute. So, I really did not have the chance to adjust the seat properly. Plus, the roof was off. I am 6-3, 230, 32 inseam.....pretty sure I fit OK, but need to really spend more time to be sure. I know there have been taller and heavier men than me saying they fit, but I gotta believe some of these guys are kidding themselves. I have no doubt they will buy the car, but there is no way they can be comfortable for more than 5-10 minutes. JMHO

          All who have said they fit, have sat in the car. The C8 has +1” more legroom and +1” more headroom than the C7. Great picture of Dave Hrejsa in the car. He’s 6’4, 285 and said he fit fine and could additionally have a helmet on; this is Dave in the car.

          Just had the opportunity to sit in a Rapid Blue 3LT, it is fantastic!! I fit with way more room than my C7, egress is better than the C7 and the 3LT interior is really nice. Anyone on the fence about the C8 needs to get in one really give it a hard look.

          What I really liked was the fact that I had much more room and the ability to adjust the seat more than in my C7.

            I sat in the car at Findlay in Las Vegas. There’s room in this car to actually have choices.

                6’4”, 280 pounds and he fits w/out an issue. Also responding to the issue of whether the passenger seat is narrower as it was in the C7...

                I'm 6'4" 280 and fit w/o issue on both sides.

                  Large people fit in a C8. Today’s two examples with pictures.

                  [Quote=faldoc]This gentleman is 6’ 5” with a 36” inseam.

                  Then ToolHoarder returned later in the day with his wife.
                  Went back after work with my wife. No issues at all.

                    Skank and I saw a 6' 6', 280 lbs. fellow with a gorgeous wife, fit in at the Monterrey Historics in August. This car fits large people.

                        Another big person fits and notes he has more room than in his C7.

                        You have far more room in a C8 than in a C7 - Both sides, it fits more like a Camaro than a Corvette.

                        Here in Houston that was the #2 thing you heard folks talk about, the shocking amount of room inside.....#1 was "Pics do not do this thing justice

                          I hear from anonymous sources that the C8 seat frame mimics the jaw of a snake which can swallow prodigious amounts of . . . things.
