  • Is anyone NOT choosing Museum Delivery?

    Seems like everybody in the forums (here and elsewhere) are opting for R8C. What’s the capacity for that option and at what point do they cut it off?

    I’ve been dying to do that and the buyers tour since the 90’s. Hate to have waited this long and get not get to do it!

    The idea of driving in the winter snow in December or January, all the way to Texas doesn't seem like a smart decision to me

      I will not be doing it, 17 hours back to Denver is not how I want to break it in.

          Not going to do Museum Delivery (R8C) this time either, e.g., going over the Rockies in winter, but again in the future.

          But BUYERS TOUR is one big YES if it happens in time for me to get my C8.

            Highly recommend the VIP tour. We had an ex-employee of the plant guide us along and he new everybody in there including their father and some grandfathers. Immense amount of knowledge and we were treated to 3 1/2 hours of plant information. Got back just in time for lunch at the Corvette Cafe and was shocked and surprised when Wendall Strode asked if he could sit down with us. Couldn't have been a better day!

              It's not an option for us Canadian buyers.
              1969 Orange L89 Coupe - enjoyed it for 3 years then traded to:
              1972 Yellow Convert with removable HT - enjoyed it for 4 years and joined by:
              1976 Orange Coupe - didn't use it much and sold after 12 years
              2000 Yellow Convertible - new C5 caught my attention and loved it for 15 years
              2015 Silver Z51 Convertible - replaced C5 with C7 then traded for GS after 2 years
              2017 Torch Red Grand Sport Convertible - still here and LOVING it

                I am not likely to choose a Museum delivery. I would really like to see my car being made but that seems impossible right now.

                  I will not be doing the Museum delivery. We've been there, and plan on going again but it won't be at delivery time.

                    My purchase will likely be at MacMulkin, a hundred miles from me. And I usually get some dealer installed upgrades not possible with Museum delivery.

                      No for us, although the plant tour would be great!

                        Did this in 2014 with my first C7, great experience! Probably not this time for the C8.

                        Dreaming of 2020 C8 in Torch Red/Sebring Orange/Elkhart Lake Blue 3LT with Z51, Spectra Gray Trident wheels, Carbon Flash Mirrors/Spoiler, and more.

                          I live in Denver and likely will do R8C. I’ll just have to time it so weather is not a significant risk. It was well worth it last time in Oct 2014.

                          1. What many don’t realize is that they do paint correction on the car prior to your arrival.
                          2. You are saving the cost of the dealer prep.
                          3. Anything they find wrong they make right before you get there. So you never know there was ever a flaw.
                          4. King and Queen for a day.
                          5. VIP tour with your own personal guide, commentary etc. Want to see something specific?
                          6. Plaque, door sill sticker, photo in front of the plant with your name on the sign, video leaving Corvette Blvd., laminated window sticker, access to special custom clothes, discount at the store!

                          As for breaking it in? That was not an issue. Sure this time I’ll probably have to arrange for an oil change somewhere. But a small inconvenience.

                              Cars wont start being delivered until early to mid February. I will be doing the NCM delivery and driving to West Texas.
