  • Why Zero C8 Worry Need

    We have all seen ME pictures and renderings in which this appears too short and in another one this seems to square, in a third one it is not appealing in a different way, etc.

    Here are two pictures of an actual Ferrari (going to auction soon). Two pictures of the identical car taken by the identification photographer on the identical day in the identical location. Does not the nose of the car look grotesquely long in one picture, yet fine in the second one. Please no need worry over the next 12 days, and even if when the official 50 GM C8 pictures are out and there is one view that you find is not attractive, first harken back to these two pictures, breathe deep and see the car in person — for the latter will produce for 99% an ear-to-ear grin, for as we know pictures are always two dimension and no car you have ever driven/owned has less than three dimensions.

    Yes, in first pic nose does look long as opposed to 2nd pic. That is why we can not form an opinion on the C8 from Pics and especially from renderings. 11 Days we will need all the photos from all the directions. Specs etc etc etc

      You have brought a great point John. We will soon be able to make 100% assertions on what we will indeed like and what we won't like.

      The waiting period is still going...

          Well put John. With all of the positive input that has been shown on this forum no reason to have a few exhibit such a bad attitude.

            Agree with your premise John ... I remember how "dorky " the C7 mules looked and the renders although "detail accurate" were not very appealing. I think the actual car will make most of us happy ... hope so anyway

              Did you all see that yesterday or the day before that Mad Magazine announced they were closing up shop. I remember reading that in 6th grade — and that was 61 years ago.

                The Alfred E Neuman "what me worry" was borrowed from early advertising posters of a doltish, country boy who had no worries as he bought his needs from the specified vendor.

                Mad's offices in the 1950s were on Lafayette Street in Manhattan, an area with industrial product vendors at that time. One of the vendors sold industrial bearings and used a version of the poster I attached in post #4. While I cannot prove it, I suspect strongly that was the inspiration for Mad's mascot, Alfred E Neuman.

                One thing I learned long ago is to try to not worry about things I have no control over.

                  The 18th will answer some visual uncertainties. Will the 18th provide performance intro for performance questions. If not, then everybody will wonder --- and not in silence, but loud and worrisome, if it is taken seriously at the ear.

                  But all that buzz will be the loving flutter of butterflies , not angry bees.

                    sometimes I forget the slogan 'what, me worry'
                    but to this day utilize a spinoff in the song
                    "Don't Worry, Be Happy"

                      Thanks John.

                      I actually find that my favorite angles of a car are typically the more unconventional ones... and not the same for every car. Having dabbled in audio/video production, i’ve found the more “artistic” and/or unique shots/angles are my favs.

                      That said, I’m looking forward to all the pics of the real C8 post 7/18 to see which ones really “bring it home” for me.

                      And hopefully I’ll be able to take my own in the near future.

                        Well that is an excellent example you posted John. Really makes your point.

                        And the side side scoops look like the camp cars. Hmmm.
