  • Hello from Manta Ray

    Hi all. I joined this new forum last month, but I just made my first post today. Figured I'd introduce myself here. Long time Corvette fan, ever since I saw the C4 as a kid at the State Fair of Texas around the time it was first introduced. Owned two C5 Coupes, a 1999 Black/Black Coupe (MN6 w/ F45 suspension) and a 2002 Millennium Yellow/Black (MN6 w/ Z51 suspension). Used to be TargaC5 on the other forum, then I had the name changed at one point then lost the password and the ability to retrieve it -- doh!) but haven't really been active there in any capacity since I sold my 2002 back in 2010.

    Been following the mid-engine development very closely ever since I saw the Holden test vehicle pics way back in early January 2015. I'm hoping to get back into Corvette sometime soon after the production car hits the market.

    Glad to be here, and I hope to be very active on this forum.
    1999 Coupe - Black
    2002 Coupe - Millennium Yellow
    2008 Jaguar XKR - Liquid Silver

    Welcome Manta Ray! Your forum name could be forecasting the ME’s future, since GM trademarked the name a couple of years ago. Thanks for sharing your “backstory.”
    Looking forward to our ME arriving.

ID:	4664 Hello Manta Ray, Welcome to the feeding frenzy of knowledge trickling in from this great forum. Hopefully we will all be witnessing one of the greatest upsets in automotive history. An American built sports-car, possibly super-car that has plenty of background and mechanical advancements that will be produced for a reasonable price to the masses which will be heavily respected by foreign manufacturers. Hopefully will be rated as one of the best sports-cars you can buy for the money for longevity, handling ,performance and looks. BTW-If it looks anything close to this I definitely want the HT Convertible.

            Welcome aboard......great story! At first I thought it was the announcement due to GM trademarking that name years ago.
