It’s been a long 7 months of waiting but my new Z51 Stingray 8 speed is finally here!
The dealer sent me a few pictures today and I pick her up on Saturday.
I have decided on her name: Emily
Inspired by Emily Ratajkowski who is smoking hot.

Congrats and it looks great. I like the Carbon Flash Badging. I have switched my 14 to the same. Cool look for sure.
Looks like your cars twin arrived at the same time eh? ie: pic #4.

Enjoy......

SWEET, both Emily & Emily. Looks like she made the train trip without a scratch. Next to my torch red, this would have been my second color choice. Wait a minute, I'll just order a white one and and have two Vettes. Anyway plan on spending time talking to a lot of interested bystanders. Have fun and we'll be talking later. Phil

Looking nice! (Mine will be very similar when it's made.)

By the way looks like there's another one like yours in the background there...

The white-and-black Z51 is just such an epic look that even when I tried to talk myself out of it just to be "different", I couldn't.

Great car, great choices on everything, very awesome.

Why did you have to wait 7 months? Dealer allocation?
Allocation/constraints and the dealer wait list was long.
I strongly dislike (hate is a better word) the GM allocation system even though I understand they want to support the best selling dealers but it is seriously flawed.
The system keeps the top dealers at the top as people get frustrated that their local dealer can't get them a car which drives customers to the top guys plenty of evidence showing that happens and the local guys suffer as people are not patient as a general rule.
I was not going to support that so I waited for my local dealer to support them.
I was in line for a 2014 but got rolled over into 2015 which got me the PDR and the new 8 speed so patience paid off for me, no complaints.

I think I was just ahead in the list ;) I picked up mine on Friday 9/12 after 8 months. You may have seen it on the parking lot. We could have drove back north together that week-end. Enjoy your rides in socal !
