Report from our President

Been doing some more reading and trying to
develop a more educated opinion on another C8
rumor I’ve reading about. Even though the C8 has
not started production as of the day I’ve started
this, I’m seeing more and more articles talking
about the prospects of a C8 Hybrid. I know there
are several other ‘supercars’ that are hybrid with a gas engine driving some
wheels and electric motors supplementing them. A number of sites like Mo- have been releasing pictures of supposed C8 hybrid prototypes for
months now, in the usual camouflaged cover. Motor Trend is even saying that
the C8 ZR1 may be a twin turbo V8 hybrid while others say it will be a V6
based hybrid. Whether it happens or not, it’s always fun to watch how some
of these rumors develop and ultimately whether there’s any truth to them or
not. Personally, I think that batteries will make or break it for a C8 hybrid.
Do you think it will happen or not and if so, how soon?

Every see a C8 on a flatbed? According to the photo and article on
two GM engineers decided to go street racing In Bowling Green on January
10th in two preproduction C8’s and got caught. This is just one more example
of ‘keep it off the street’. Whether they have license or jobs when all it done
is unknown, but it’s just another good example of why racing on the street is

Speaking of C8’s, did you see #001 was auctioned off for charity to the tune
of $3,000,000? Though they rolled a car across the Barrett-Jackson stage for
the sale, turns out it’s not the actual #001 as that’s not yet been produced due
to the UAW strike. A lot of PR and money for charity was created for the
event, wish I could have been there.

Got one more C8 tidbit then I’ll leave them alone for a while. Motor Trend
shows a pre-production C8 parked apparently at one of the GM employee’s
house (I assume) on blocks. Posted on January 23d, seems someone stole
the tires and rims right in front of the house, leaving the car on a couple of
concrete blocks like a beached whale.

I started writing this right around the time of the 5” snowfall in January. As
I was getting the snow shovel and show blower out, I had to walk by the
Corvette. She looked so sad sitting under the car cover in the garage, wanting

to get out and cruise the highways. I know I could get her out, but the big ques-
tion is could I get her back in? There was still that 5” of snow down the middle
of the alley, all the ice, salt and snow on the streets and a small incline getting
up into the garage, not to mention the tires on the car wouldn’t be typically
considered snow tires. I may not be able to take her out, but I think I’ll go start
her up this week to insure she doesn’t feel neglected lately. I have to say I’m
envious of the snowbirds, being able to typically drive their Vettes during the
winter months.

Can’t pass it up. Just read today that the first production C8 came off the line,
so I expect we’ll be seeing them on the street soon.
