In this months Automobile (October 2014) mag editor Mike Floyd reports in his one page editor's letter the extremely positive reactions, especially from kids, he got driving around Detroit in a Stingray. He stated "During my 15 years or so driving press cars, there have been a few I've driven that have elicited something similar to this sort of reactions." "It's about the battle for the automotive souls of today's youth." Yup, our Stingrays will save our youth as well as serving as a blast for those of us at the other end of the age spectrum :cool:

I was in a restaurant, my C7 was in view from the window by the table and I saw 3 young kids from the next table go out and take photos of the car...maybe this is the future

I'll need to read the article to fully understand the context and meaning that the author intended by that statement... and I will read it.


Here's my perspective on his observation.

We all know that the C7 Corvette is appreciated by most, and loved by many, who see it gliding down the road. We've all encountered it, every time we drive.

We can say with confidence that our C7s are driving "billboards", and they impart a powerful message. That message has differing meanings to each individual. Some will ascribe a link to the reviving US economy, while others will tie the C7 to an achievement of one of the largest and most iconic corporations in the world (GM).

GM did not go gentle into that good night, and the C7 is a testament to that. Rage, rage against the dying of the light, and astounding achievements can be had.


To most people, and "today's youth" in particular, seeing a sexy C7 glide by is a reminder that here in America, more so than anywhere else in the world, anything is possible.

And they know they could be driving a C7 someday.

I've let so many kids sit in my car. They all love it.
