I was invited to the Manhattan debut of the C7 tonight. There were a number of classic Corvettes on display including a pristine 1953 that was purported to be the third one every built. There was also a 65 Sting Ray Coupe and a few 1970s "Mako Sharks". What were missing were late 50s early 60s "Route 66" era models.

The new model was very well received. I sat in it and the seats and interior are a huge improvement over the previous generation. There is enough luggage space for two people so it is practical for a two seater.

I suspect it will be well received by the automotive press and will sell very well.
