Amazing Car

Finally picked up my Stingray yesterday and it's everything and more than I was expecting. Weather wasn't great here yesterday so I only put on 50km but it was a sweet 50. I sat in my garage staring at it for 6 hours last night!!! My family was shocked and super stoked to get their first ride and my wife even put a nice short burn at the end of the driveway. (oh well).

I will post some photos and comments/review when I get to take it out again (tomorrow's weather looks good) but my first impression is that the car seemed silly fast, well built with quality materials. The Laguna Blue with black rims mirrors and spoiler is absolutely stunning and I'm so glad I didn't change my color choice. The only negative I have so far is the closing of the rear deck. It would be nice if they could have incorporated one of the electronic auto-latching mechanisms like on my Benz as it doesn't close tight every try without a firm hand on top of the deck. Something I'm totally fine with given the rest of the car!;)

This is a negative that goes away - a couple thousand miles and the seals flatten and it closes fine with all the windows and doors shut. Talon posted on this last month. He is right -at about 2500 , mine started closing with one hand and never touching the paint...
I read on the list of features that the rear hatch has automatic pull down. Is this not right? It seems you shouldn't have to slam the hatch to close it. Also chevy made a big deal about the high-tech vent that it came up with to help close the rear hatch more easily. Has anyone else seen this info? I'm surprised to read this post.
did not make production....
at 2500 mine became compliant and shut every time with a simple pull down using the inner handle packet.......
