  • Seven C8’s On A Transporter

    Nice to see that they keep making more and more of them at BGA even though the Plant has yet to a) cease full time C7 production, and more astoundingly, they have yet to two the schedule two month Plant C7-to-C8 conversion upgrades. Well done BGA!

    Thanks to “‘73and’75” for his wife taking these fantastic pictures while the transporter was rolling down the road.

    Might the one he calls black be instead Shadow Gray Metallic?

    Seven C8's on a transport rolling down the road
    So I am driving SB on I-76, just south of Sterling Colorado and I come upon a auto transport carrying seven (7) C8's. This was on Monday August 5. I was driving so I had my wife take a pic of each car.

    There were 2 white cars, 2 black cars, 2 blue cars, and a gray car. They all had MIchigan manufacturer plates on them. There were no decals or stickers or markings on the cars that I could see. They looked driven and used. Some had rear spoilers (Z-51's).

    I am only guessing here, but they are pilot cars probably on their way to Arizona/New Mexico for hot weather endurance testing/validation.

    Another black C8 and another blue C8 --nice spoiler on the blue car--are those holes in the panel behind the driver's door?

    I believe what appears to be holes in the back panel the driver's door is sunlight coming through the overhead track on the car carrier.. May be headed to Ron Fellows.

        Sorry, I diverted them from Carlisle to your house.

          Could be, the one right at the back of the transporter in the sunlight definitely seems to have that odd tinge of blue in the highlights that is typical of SGM. Also, the "white" one on top of the transporter seems to be Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic I think. Can't really tell for the one on the lower level in the shadows.

          So does Pilot Transport have a tracking web page we could use to follow the progress of truck 11290 via its GPS?
          The Internet -- making stalkers of us all since 1998.
