My first C8 sighting at Annapolis C&C Yesterday
« on: June 08, 2020, 08:56:27 AM »
Being such an amazing day yesterday brought out all the car guys to yesterday's Cars & Coffee in Annapolis.  It seems people are really tired of being cooped up at home.  There was barely a masked to be found in the crowed. 

Anyway, I parked next to and I saw in person for the first time a C8 Corvette.  It was actually pretty awesome! The owner was a pretty young guy ( maybe upper 30s) that has a business custom modifying and painting cars so he immediately disassembled the car and painted it this Lime Green color that he said was a stock Camaro color.  I thought it looked extremely cool in this color. I did not know what it was when I first parked, I thought it was a Lamborghini.  The owner had removed all the badging when he repainted it.

There is a gentleman who runs the Facebook page for the Annapolis C&C who took a real shine to the car.  He offered the owner a Testerossa plus cash in trade.

Didn’t know C&C was back on
Still haven’t been out since Feb, still a little skeptical
Owned since 1971, now driven over 240,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

But the car is kick a$$ and tracked like a train on rails

Amazing that someone wanted to trade for it already

These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS
