About a month ago, I picked up a very limited info brochure. It was in a satin black envelope (7"x10"), with a quad fold sheet in it. The cover of the sheet had the new crossed flag logo, which shows thru a matching cut-out in the envelope. The back has Stingray emblem. First unfold shows interior, with a short description (not many specs) of the car. Second unfold, the 'fold out'... is a 3/4 rear view of a Cyber Gray (or black?) Stingray. Nice 'picture brochure' but little real info. Ordered my car at a different dealership, as this one was out of it's limited allocation. (ordered Oct first, at 3000 on Oct 15 - no Z51 or cf roof).

One other thing... don't know if anyone's thought about this or noticed before... on Corvettes (first notice on my C5) there is no 'Chevrolet' script, or bowtie on the interior or exterior... I find that sort of odd.

Noooo... I really want one. Maybe when I go to the dealership today, it will magically appear :)

That's it... funny that someone is trying to make money on something that is given away for free at a dealership. Maybe it's more rare than I suspected?

Went into my local dealership today for a C7 showing. Ask about a brochure and said they had none and even if they had he said he wouldn't give me one. They will only give them out to those who actually buy a C7. And you wonder why I have never bought a car from them and never will.

Forget about getting one at the dealer's. I purchased one on-line thru E-Bay. I payed a rather hefty price for it. I was TOTALLY disappointed when it arrived in the mail. Not like the brochures of old. No color samples, no option lists, no model descriptions. Pretty much nothing. Save your money, and spend it on gas.

That stealership has got it half-assed backwards!!!:eek: The purpose of the brochure is to give it to folks who DO NOT have a C7, like prospective buyers maybe, duh!! Why give them to someone who ALREADY HAS a C7!! What is the purpose of that??
I don't get the reasoning.

Also.... All 3 dealers I visited here around the Sarasota, FL area and including Stingray Chevrolet, told me they received only a few and were gone in seconds. I can almost bet they were all gobbled up by the employees before any customer ever got to see one!:p

I went by my Dealership this past weekend and asked for a brochure. He told me they've not received any. I told him I wanted one when they come in and he assured me I'd have one. I'll let you all know if/when I'm able to get one. I do believe if we purchase a C7, out of courtesy we should be provided a brochure. I know my Dealership feels this way and confirmed same.
