  • Seeing double

    At the Home Depot in East Hanover today I ran into Jbradleyz and his torch red 3LT. Here is the alpha and omega of the C8, a $30,000 price difference, and you can see it when they are side by side. Mine is a basic 1LT with no options, his is loaded, with aftermarket cats and Xpel. It was great meeting and seeing his build.

        Both are impressive. They both are almost as shiny. I can see a difference 👍👍

          The base 1LT looks sleeker, more shapely, and cleaner!

              1LT doesn't get the nets They are available all over for around $90-$100. GM and many Corvette vendors sell them.

                Seems like a lot for a net, I'll shop around and report back

                    As for looks, I think the C8 without the wing looks much better.

                      Based on how the colors show up in the light, they both look like they fit well into the Home Depot Parking lot!! Maybe they could be used for HD advertising. Great looking cars.

                              Here is my car and a buddies. He was the fella I reached out to for a ride before mine was built. We have become friends and meet for lunch frequently. People REALLY do a double take when they see two at once. Click image for larger version
