The same thing happened to me at a convention I was attending last week. Talk turned to cars and I said I just got my C7 --even had to show the key fob to prove it -- suddenly everyone wanted a detailed assessment of everything from the order through what she's like to drive. It was a lot of fun to see how much excitement there is from folks who had probably forgotten how much they have loved Corvettes -- many since they were kids some 45 years ago.I was on a flight this morning (left my C7 sleeping in the garage) and noticed old gentleman sitting next to me reading a car magazine of C7 vs 911. Finally I asked him which car won the contest. He mentioned C7 and how wonderful it is. I then told him that I just purchased one. He didnt believe me, so I pulled out pics on my phone. He instantly became my best friend and we talked 2 hrs non stop as he is also corvette lover and he's probably in his late 60s wanted to know everything and what has changed. He was very intrigued by it all. Was a great conversation.
