Yes, we are a small state, but we are passionate about our Corvettes. There are going to be C7's here in this beautiful state soon. If you have ordered, have plans to order or have received your C7, please post here.

So, to start, we have a C6 ZO6, which through luck and other circumstances was the #1 C6 Z06 ever delivered by the National Corvette Museum (an honor it proudly wears by inscriptions on its underside by the talented NCM PDI crew). We baby our car, but drive it long distances when we are in the mood, often to its BG birthplace. It will be making its next long trip (third x-country) in next year's Caravan. Then it will go to a good new home, when its sibling, either a 2015 C7 Z-51 Callaway version arrives or a 2015 Z06/7.

How about your current/ future Corvette?

From Oregon as well and I am on my 6th vette after having an '81, '88, 03 anniversary SE, '06, '09, and currently a '12 GS Roadster. Will be getting a '15 roadster next Summer after the '14 bugs are worked out and I can see what other options may be available at that time. LOVE these cars and have travelled all over the Western US in them and wherever we go, these cars attract attention like magnets attract cooties!!! So far I want a LS3 LimeRock Green roadster with Z51 kit and dark brown interior and all the goodies! having hard time waiting while some folks are getting theirs but now it is only less than a year to go so I can handle it, I think....or not!

Will be ordering a LRG Z51 today.......sold my beloved NSX and selling my M6 to get the C7 (I'm telling my wife I am "downsizing") Have never owned a corvette but this C7 looks to be an animal of a different kind. Would love to get a ride in one if one pops up in central Oregon.

I'm up in the Portland Metro area and I ordered my White 2LT Z51 just a couple weeks ago. I went to LA (my hometown) for the holidays and had a chance to visit some big dealerships there and they even let me take one out for a spin! I can't wait to get mine:)

I have had my Vette for about a month, unfortunately it snowed just after delivery and it has been living in my garage most of the time. Did get it out last weekend for a trip to the coast and it was as expected. Comfortable and fun!! to drive. In Eugene - GO DUCKS!!

Have a TR convertible ordered. We are in the Portland area. Hope to do the museum delivery at the end of March, and then a fun drive home seeing family and friends. Absolutely can't wait. This will be my first vette after falling in love with them 50 years ago!

Ordered mine from a dealership in Beaverton Oregon, as Alaska had zero allocations, which is fine with me because our roads would turn any car into a rattling pile of recyclables in no time. I fly down to pick it up on the 19th . The dealership is handling all the extras that I want like tinting, and opticoat pro. and it should be ready to just hop in and go. Going to spend 10 days driving, to anywhere and everywhere (been cooped up all winter, cabin fever !) I could not think of a better way to break-in the car. I plan on leaving it in storage in the pacific northwest so I can fly out to it and take it for drives to wherever seems like a good place to go at that particular time. A car is meant to be driven, and driven she'll be!
P.S. I am originally from Oregon, and haven't been back there in 24 years. It'll be interesting to see how much it has changed.

Here is my 1972 Stingray. 42Years later and 240,000 miles. I ordered this Corvette in December 1971 and took delivery in April 1972. So I know how happy you all are with you NEW C7.

yes, that is the dealership, but I didn't allow them to highball me like that, I showed them an ad from another dealer back east, and told them that it's just a different airline to fly on. Then we agreed on a price. (amazingly)
