Funny, just sent this very video to Gilles tonight (before seeing this post), reminding him what he could have made in his pocket if he went with a C8.R purchase instead of the AO. Personally I love the look of the C8.R, and it does make me want to consider the more expensive CF aero. And yes, even the 1LT's were selling for crazy money in that auction. Supply and demand I guess.
What I do look forward to see is all of the Stingrays being traded into dealers when people get called for their Z06 allocations this summer, curious to hear what the dealers will offer on trade-in, and what they will mark up on those trade-ins to make some coin on the side without GM slapping their wrist. I anticipate a lot of trade-ins. Meanwhile I will just have to sit and keep waiting it out patiently for my Stingray at some distant date.
