    Hi all.

    I'm here because another AY owner in MY NEIGHBORHOOD of all places, stopped by and said HI! A terrific guy, so friendly and we had lots to talk about of course. He couldn't say enough good about this site, so looking forward to learning quite a bit.

    Newskate9, we know, lol, your neighbor has good taste about MECF. Thanks for joining our Corvette community!

    From your avatar, I really like your custom front end treatment on your car. Are there more mods around the sides and rear you would like to share with us?

          Welcome ! Where are you located in PA ? There are 4 C8's in my smaller neighborhood in Gettysburg, PA. There were 5 of us, but one neighbor sold his back to the dealer and ordered another one ..... hasn't arrived yet. Perhaps you are nearby........

          Yes, this is a great, friendly and very helpful forum to be part of !!!

            I'm the big city, 😊, (actually east of) Harrisburg. Funny, I don't see that many C8's around but there are a few. Quick funny story, I wasn't sure I wanted a vette until I saw an AY one parked in the Target lot. I asked the driver, who was working in his car if I could snap some pics. One of the pics attached.

            The Type R behind the C8 is MINE! I traded it on my vette. I found out the owner of this beauty here, lives in MY neighborhood and this car inspired me to trade up. We met for realz one day he drove by my house and I ran and chased him down. Such a great guy and his car is immaculate in every respect. A masterpiece for sure. HE is the one who told me about this site. All good!

              Nice !!! I actually ordered my 2020 from Klick Lewis in Palmyra. Near you, apparently..... I wasn't familiar with them, but they had a guaranteed first round allocation back in July 2019 and I early traded our '17 Grand Sport in at my requested price. They were also selling at MSRP with no other funny business....... great family owned business. I've had ours 2 years this month.

              One of my neighbors and friends has an AY C8 Z51 coupe. He's done a lot of nice mods to his car, as I have to mine...... If you like carbon fiber, then I've got just about everything on the exterior in visible carbon fiber and a number of interior pieces as well including a heated carbon fiber steering wheel.

              If you're feeling up for a ride down Rt 15 sometime, would always enjoy meeting another member. Send me a message.

              Enjoy your new ride !

                Strake, ya know, I would really like to take that drive and see the carbon goodies! Interesting, when I got the car I read enough to know it needed special service too. I interviewed service managers and met a few cert techs after that round. I settled on KL and so far, so good. Happy with their work and customer interactions. When I took my new wheels down to get my all-seasons installed, I never touched them once I left my house. They had a small army take the pieces from my Pilot, and when done, the army put them back in the car. I thought that was pretty cool, but I'm easy to impress!

                Drive safe, and thank you again for the welcome.
