    • Dude. I love ya cleeder but your selling point of your 2020 Vette is BS. The car just simply sucks ( straight out ) I'm sure like Donald Trump you can't tell if the truth I've been an extremely long fan and I've enjoyed every episode from day one. I know maybe due to sponsorship and support that you can't say what you really think and feel but let me say it for you the more electronics the more crap the less quality. You don't like the car because it does not perform the way you expected the way it should the way we all expected. It just really sucks has someone who loves watching you and James and the spaghetti over there ( you know who you are) I just expected the truth and I know you can't give it I will continue to watch and support although I am very upset to have to read the truth from your body language and speech after watching you all these years. Deep down inside you hate the car that's not my opinion that's a fact of watching you all these years. Do it for Dale and keep it real. Always a huge fan GUIDOMACK Brockton Massachusetts

  • Chevrolet lost me when they failed to offer a manual transmission in a fucking SPORTS (AKA driver's) car. One of the best things about the Dodge Viper is it was NEVER offered with a piece of shit slushbox. Can't figure out a clutch pedal? Can't drive one. Then again, the Viper was always more of a track car than anything else.

  • How tall are you? So you only want twice as much horsepower as you get from stock??? No wonder you sold it!!! Of course that makes you pretty dumb for buying it in the first place doesn't it??? And also your other cars have that much horsepower? That's awesome. But that makes you really, really dumb for having bought it in the first place.

  • The ridiculous markup they're getting on the C8 is a direct result of people having too much ego and not enough common sense.

  • Cleetus, love your fire truck. But, be careful with the air horn while on the road. Three toots means you going to reverse, going down the road at 60mph, telling everyone you are about to reverse would have all the truckers scratching their heads.

    Don BrackenregDon Brackenreg3 månader sedan
  • Sold my C7 at a profit to buy my C8. Sold my C8 at a profit as well. I'll wait for the market to balance out before buying another one. Also the cabin comfort is compromised by the heating of the engine. It can't be just me that had that issue.

    Ryan BrownRyan Brown3 månader sedan
  • The Real list price is $60,000 loaded on a new C-8 Stingray. Right now Sellers and dealerships are price gouging and anybody that pays $40,000 more for a car that’s only $60,000 worth is a dumbass. The reason why they’re going for that is because of the coronavirus. GM put a halt on mass production of these cars. Very soon these cars price will drop back down to $55,000. You can still get a new 2019 Stingray for $50,000.

  • What’s 1000hp when you don’t have traction?! That’s the point of the C8 corvette you don’t need 1000hp to smoke everything in sight. 700hp is plenty lol. If you just said I don’t like it because it hooks then that’s fine but don’t shit on what it is because “ It DoEsN’T HaVE A 1000hP”

  • I love the look and of the C8. But honestly I believe that they should have brought the Pontiac Feiro back and they really could have made the Feiro the mid engined Euro beating car that it should have been in the mid to late 80's. The C7 is amazing corvette should keep with what they do amazing like the Stingrays, ZO6 etx

Not for the same reasons just in the UK, we're subject to EU laws so the modern coopers have an eco tune, GPF, Monsterous cat etc etc. So I'm going to buy one 3 years older so I don't have to deal with the addition 2500 in road tax, the additional 2000 in annual servicing etc etc.

  • I had a very rare 1973 Pantera with a 428 SCJ in it. I bought it for $13,000 in 1975, new car title, never been sold from the dealer. I drove it a year. If you have problems in the C8, I'm 6'5", so you can imagine my big, tall ass in a Pantera. I sold it for $14,000 after driving a year. Thought I was so smart. Last I heard, many years ago they were going for well over $100k. I guess they made very few with a 428 in them. Glad you made money on the deal. Smiles.

  • People forget the mass-production of these things exceeds 10,000 units per year. Check the history 35,000 33,000 30,000 Those are the sales numbers from 2015-2018. This is not a Ferrari or Lotus with just a few produced each year. You are buying a mass-produced car. In a short time you will find 2020 Corvettes, used, for $40,000, $45,000. Whoever paid over $100,000 for that car - in 18 months are going to deeply regret it. The prices of used Ferraris and used Lotus - aka "the secondary market" - shows a steep drop in price too, and those are LIMITED PRODUCTION sports cars. Chevy is running their factory at full-tilt boogie and in a few months there will be so many 2020 corvettes on the road, I feel sorry for the sucker who bought that car for that much. I'm not at all knocking the car. I'm saying THEY ARE MASS-PRODUCED and they are going to be selling 10,000, 20,000, 30,000 cars or more every year. BUY A LOW-MILEAGE USED ONE in 12 to 18 months for $40,000. DON'T BE AN IDIOT. . . .
