Today I went online to my local Autonation dealer to schedule maintenance for my Caddie. While there I looked for 2014 Stingray inventory and it listed (2), 1 was arctic white, Black int, 3LT Z51, MRC, Competition seats, Red Calipers, Carbon Flash Mirror/Spoiler, Black Wheels, Manual trans (I had ordered Auto) everything I had ordered plus MRC & Seats. Wishfully thinking I called and spoke to a salesman and he said someone had put a $2000 deposit but might not be able to get financed but they would have until tomorrow to complete purchase. I told him I wanted it! He told me to come by and sign a backup contract. We did, and they called the other people and they backed out, so I called my dealer and he said I could cancel (I had an order #, but only preliminarily accepted by factory). BAM! We bought it at sticker $68,250. This MACHINE IS SOOO AWESOME! For those of you questioning Automatic vs Manual, get the MANUAL it is so smooth. I wanna sleep in it! I CANNOT WAIT TO DRIVE, DRIVE DRIVE...Tim

Tim, congrats on your C7 sweet ride. The person who ordered the Vette is probably kicking their self in the six for not completing the deal, their loss and your gain. Enjoy!

I could not believe it! I still can't. I "made" my wife look at forums last night to realize how LUCKY we were.
