With a TPW of 10/20, and delivery to MacMulkin, I can almost smell my C7 roadster. Hope to get in a week or two of use before we have a sticking snow. With all that aluminum under the car, winter driving with all the corrosives they put on the roads up here would be stupid. I don't think I have felt like this since I was six years old and Christmas was three weeks away. A second set of wheels with all season tires are on order and paid for. I don't think it will be too cold for a little top down in November. After all, we ride snowmobiles up here.

Got to be exciting Milliwatt Rob: Top down should be no problem especially with the second set of wheels and all season tires- that is perfect weather for seat heaters and the heater on with the top down. Would recommend if you anticipate doing it on a particularly cold day that you lower the top in your garage rather than wait until you are driving around and the roof, structure and rear window has dropped to the ambient temperature.:cool:

I hear you living in NH you know how our winters can be we might see snow tomorrow or not until Feb. Just enjoy as long as you can. I expect my Z06 in the dead of winter. ;)

I drove my '93 convertible when I bought it in Nov all winter no problem.

I feel for you Rob.....my TPW is also 10-20 and also from MacMulkin, BUT then it has to be shipped to OREGON whereas you will have been driving yours for weeks before I ever see mine! BUT Christmas is coming early for both of us hopefully!!

Ours is also TPW 10/20, we also ordered from MacMulkin, though ours is being drop shipped to a dealer in Utah (which means we get to drive it back to Vegas from there, yay!). Can't wait.

Yeah would love to meet up with some C7 owners in Vegas, if you ever get together for coffee or anything.

Milliwatt Rob, I'm actually a little jealous of the drive you get to take from Nashua back to Vermont. That should be fantastic. ;)

The route home from MacMulkin is planned.....Two lane roads all the way, and I have this fantastic hairpin curve on a hill 4 miles from my house. Bringing a bomber jacket to wear for a top down ride home.

Still wondering how your order bumped ahead of mine Rob by a week. I placed my order with MacMulkin on 9-10. TPW is 10-27. Maybe yours being a convertible got you in a week earlier. Anyways I am with you, I am so anxious I can't stand it. I think I have watched every YouTube video that contains a new Vette.

Dealers get separate allocations for coupes and convertibles. Someone else who ordered after you could be closer to the front of the convertible list

My night race blue coupe is sitting built at the plant (last week). Anyone have any idea how long that takes to get to Pennsylvania before my head explodes?!?!?!? Ordered first week of August.

The shipping company, Jackie Cooper, has ten days from when the car is released to them (which may take a couple days after the car rolls off the line,) until they have to have it off the lot. They generally try to get a full truck, 11 vettes, all going to the same geographic location, so it may take some time.

Thanks Jeff...I've been a 'lurker' for awhile, getting educated about the C7. There sure is a lot to know, but it sure is fun figuring it out!

Rob, maybe you will have an extended fall season so you can get plenty of wheel time in your C7 masterpiece.
