Today’s “Corvette Today” Podcast

Steve Garrett talks with Adam Boca, the National Corvette Museum supervisor for insurance.  Adam explains the advantages of insuring your exotic or Corvette through the NCM...which includes setting a predetermined value for your car, in case of a disaster.  All this for about the same cost as a "big box" insurance company. OK, you bought your Corvette dream car-now you have to insure it. But don't go to a traditional "big box" insurance company.  Insure your Corvette (or exotic car) through the National Corvette Museum

    Try lowering/raising the roof while in interior view, facing rearward. Windows go up and down, etc.

        Nooooooo, I promise I WILL stop as soon as I need glasses!

        I fire up the Visualizer and the Build & Price site to stare at our built car every night before I go to bed. I keep hoping for a technicolor dream of us driving with the top down along twisty back roads.

        You are not alone in your OC8D - Obsessive C8 Desire.
        The twisty back roads of NH's Monadnock Region surrounding my hometown wait patiently for our Torch Red HTC, Z51 & MRC equipped (to smooth out the leftover Frost Heaves), to come cruising after a Springtime Museum Delivery. A 55 year dream come true.

          From the medical literature I have read, OC8D is treatable but incurable. The afflicted patient needs to receive Weekly doses of C8 cockpit serum with some of the more seriously afflicted Transitioning to C8Z06 serum after the C8 has ceased to be effective.

            To relieve the pressure, I may need to take some Touring Laps in the C8 at the NCM track as I wait for my late summer delivery...

              OK, not that I was getting bored with the admiring the exterior in the visualizer, but I decided to spend today looking at the Interior. It's nicer than I thought. When I get delivery I'm going to have some serious reading to do. but I did notice that the large Bose speakers in the doors seem to each have individual controls on them. I couldn't zoom in enough to see the icons, so I'm not exactly sure what they do. I'm assuming it's not volume or balance, as I'd think that's controlled by main audio console.

                Those are controls for the memory seating positions.

                There's a button for memory #1, one for memory #2, one for the "exit position", and one for setting i.e. memorizing settings to those positions. You can save the seat configuration and steering wheel tilt / telescope, and possibly mirror position (not sure). You can recall the memorized position by pressing the appropriate button, but can also set it up so the appropriate position is recalled automatically. That is, unlock the car using fob #1 and it restores position #1. You can also set it up so when shutting down the car and opening the door it automatically activates the "exit position" which can swing the steering wheel out of the way etc.

                Note: the above description is based on what the C7 does, and my assumption that the C8 will work the same way.

                    In the C7, it memorizes [outside] mirror positions, too. I assume it will on the C8.

                    My wife just bought a Mazda, and the seat memory also memorizes the height of the HUD, which I thought was kind of cool.

                      I probably have 100 saved pictures from the visualizer on my phone. I have tried all sorts of combos and options to be absolutely sure of what I want. I guess my salesman will have it easy when he calls me to enter my order.
