      Man... what timing. My delivery is a week from today (the 23rd). I fly into Nashville on Sunday, and plan on handing my car over to Auto Armor after I take delivery and staying in Bowling Green for a week.

      Right now I'm just taking things one day at a time and will see what happens. Variables include:
      • Will my airline cancel my flight?
      • Will the museum shut down?
      • Will Auto Armor continue to be open?
      • If everything goes as planned, what the heck am I going to do for a week in Bowling Green while they wrap my car?
      Obviously my epic 4,000 mile road trip to the northeast and back to Utah is out. Right now I plan on just driving it back home, about 1,600 miles, through much less infected areas than the northeast. Sigh.

      On the bright side, my car will be fully broken in when I get home.
      I had a different epic trip planned that will likely be canceled or dramatically changed. I’m at 3400 and my TPW was 3/9 so who knows what’s going on. Staying safe is the most important thing now. Good luck

        I started this thread thinking that since we are all anxious to get behind the wheel of our C8, tracking the implications of the Coronavirus on the process would be helpful information. I didn’t intend a medical or political debate forum.

        As I face the decision whether to quarantine myself as “high risk”, I face many implications for my family and myself. I count myself fortunate as I am healthy and can weather an economic squall. Many in our country and the world, and on this forum (I note one member awaiting a heart transplant) may face graver consequences.

        Some of the posts here have caused me to scream and I could respond with much oppositional vigor. I haven’t, because this is not what this ought to be about.

        So, please, unless you are a medical professional with specific experience and something to say pertinent to how this crisis affects C8 aficionados, May I ask a favor: keep opinions out of this. How about just empathy and mutual support.
        This I found to be of interest and is germane to the discussion. It is just a matter of time.

            It’s hard to imagine what lies ahead. They (the experts) are saying that this will be with us through the summer or longer, unless a vaccine or cure is developed.

              Typically vaccines take a long time to develop. 1-2 years is pretty fast. It is hard to imagine that any segment of the economy or population will not be touched by this in some way. People are just going to have to roll with the punches until this thing is dealt with. We signed new contracts yesterday but I have a contract we are supposed to sign in approximately two weeks for a new 14,000SF restaurant on a lake. Have to admit I am not sure I would be proceeding with a new restaurant given what is going on. That will tell me a lot about the mindset of banks and business owners and where we might be heading.

                  The world will adapt to any situation that is before them. On line sales will help a lot of businesses. People who are able to work from home will slow down the spread of the virus. It’s a people problem that us people will handle. Just do you part is all we can ask for. Help thy neighbor the best you can. We are all in this together and together we shall overcome all that is ahead of us. If you need help ask for it. Be kind to all you encounter during this time in your life.

                      IMHO with what is going to happen over the coming months (roil) in the markets many who thought they had no chance at getting one of these cars will see them in showrooms. Many people are keeping their powder dry during this and will postpone a purchase of a toy or two. As in all uncertain financial markets and future economic impact there is opportunity for those patient and who have the wherewithal to find it.

                      For example if I this had happened when the Z06 or the HP version was in the same state of production these first versions are I would have contacted every dealer in Texas (General Manager) followed by an email confirming our telecon letting them know if they had anyone back out I would be a buyer of a hard loaded Z06 if that is what it will be called in the following colors xxxxxxxxxxxxx.

                        Maybe you have that clause .... " An act of God " CoVid19 seems to apply.

                        If we cannot blunt that peak, we are in for a really hard time Worldwide.

                        Tripling every week since Monday the 16th at 3500 cases for 49 days is 2187(3500) = 7,654,500 cases

I, too, will be doing a ROADTRIP, but, back to the Left Coast ... only about 2450 miles or so for me. Will get my 1st oil change upon arrival to California

                                I would not bank on that one.

                                Really glad I did not sell my C7 though.
