this is how they get out of cheating at the races. since the blackwing engine is not in a production model,they are breaking the rules.the blackwing was used at the most recent races. plus that overselling of car will give them a production break excuse.now they can milk out corvette production of 40k cars over 4 years instead of 1. no corona virus in the town yet production stopped.

carbuzz.com/news/used-c8-corvette-stingrays-on-sale-for-over-150000 c8 is its own soap opera! im glad i got in on c8 news early,this has been one hell of a story so far! i still say bolling green plant is an essential operation! somewhere right now,a snowflake is melting over not getting his new corvette. the mental trauma from this lockdown is bad!

now its time to bitch about gm!
heres the middle finger to gm engineers and unions!
at 16 i got my first gm,a chevy monza,i had to rebuild it because some idiot at gm thought it a smart thing to put an aluminum block on a cast iron head.it melted the block!
then i bought a chevy impala 76,it had a constant velocity drive shaft! fuck you gm!
then i had some 70 model camaros that were easy to work on,
then i went jap and had an 80 nissan and learned what truly easy was about.
then some dodge and ford junk over the years.
then im like,get a chevy camaro,they were easy and i can get parts for it.a 94 with a 3.4L v6.oh but they only made it for 3 years.
well it was prone to blown head gaskets.its now taken me 3 months to repair this car.mostly tearing it down and waiting on heads,because some idiot somewhere deep in the matrix typed in the wrong casting number for that car and created a clusterfuck worldwide for all industries associated with rebuilding those heads for that car. ive takin close to hundred bolts loose so far to get the top and front of motor apart.i have shit scattered everywhere.ive got broken brand new deep well six point sockets because of that engine.
i just used 5 different size sockets to change the timing chain guide.i just got everything apart and the only time ive ever in my life used a 11mm socket.ever! the chain guide has 11mm bolts,really,no really! fuck you gm and your army of retards! theres no excuse! none,if that bolt size is because of unions and retarded joey needs a job,its time to lay off retarded joey!
i read only gm can do oil changes on the new corvette,well,as much as the corvette is sexy,odds are its a nightmare to work on and no smart human in their right mind will probably ever shade tree mechanic that car. i personally hope i never buy a gm used or new the rest of my life. if i ever need another used vehicle,i will remember how gracefully it was for me to repair a nissan and i will probably buy nissan.ive just been burned too many times by shitty gm engineers.fuck gm!
theres no way,gm has already admitted the 2021 model will start production in november.even if they had new hires right now to fill the demand,they still have to be trained.4 months to put out 17k production.nope.just to stay up with race rules,the blackwing engine must hit 300 cars by Dec 31.thats the 2021 model.
