    all depends on how heavy GMs inventory is...

      I hope this isn't true but, I guess it could be.

        The strike is costing GM something to the tune of 100 million per day. It won't last long. Concerns over Corvette delays are click bait. Minimal delays.
        2020 2LT Z51 Coupe
        Red exterior, interior, calipers
        Comp seats
        Mag ride
        Front Lift
        Engine appearance package (for the lights). Will be selling the carbon fiber panels. Hit me up!

          A tempest in a teapot -- none of us have an actual idea when our C8s will be built, let alone delivered, so, not that our collective desires mean anything, there's really nothing we can do about any of it. Just something else to chat about.

              If I pay an extra 20k do you think they will let me build my own C8?

                My guess is that the strike will be over quickly and won't impact C8 production.

                Given that most of the 50,000 workers live paycheck to paycheck and they only get $250 a week in strike pay which is not available until after the 15th day of the strike, they will be eager to negotiate and go back to work. The last GM strike lasted 3 days.

                  I sure hope you're right, and bye the way, I believe John corrected that number that GM is losing daily ( on another thread ) to approximately 30 million, not 100

                    The electric company just came to my door and said the power will be cut off for 8 hours on Friday. I said what about all my frozen crab cakes in the freezer? He shrugged. Is that related to the strike? I'm getting scared.

                      So, there's good news...


                      You know what you'll be having for dinner!

                      See, there's always a silver lining.

                          Thanks. Feel better. It'll be like one of those hot dog eating contests around here except it will be crab cakes!

                              Dang, I seriously had the same thought... Mom's basement!

                              He should have Mom spring for some pillow covers as a B-day gift.

                              Anyhow, living with the parents is a great way to afford a C8.
