Yes what is the scoop on the vert???? I am dying for more info. I am patiently trying my best to wait for the vert but watching these coupes rolling off the lines it making it harder by the day. Pictures of the vert there tell me they are getting even farther along in the development. So anyone have any tidbits on a possible production timeframe????? Please please share . . .

Yea, I remember that. But those weren't full production and it seems like something they'd fix. And it sticks out more with the acrylic panels but all the cars that've been at shows have had cloth. Maybe it's just an angle thing and from a straight on shot it lines up right.

I didn't even notice when I took the shot. The passenger door may have been open slightly.

The car is old and was likely hand built at least a year ago. It could have any of the test engines (like the turbo 4 or L76) or production engines in it. And any mix of options that we may or may not have right now

Wow didnt even notice that they didnt fix the door issue! That was brought up before and i remember it was said that it would be fixed for production. And that was officially number 1. SO i guess youll have to get used to that
I tried to get them to turn on the ABL but they had already tried to see it before but it was too bright outside.
I put the Hazards on and Hylton wanted to get a pic with those on.
When i turned on the Halos, the parking lights were not on. But im not sure how it is on the official production cars.
Have you guys seen the exhaust note vid yet?
I will post pics, it took me hours to find out how to take the pics from my Iphone and then put it on the computer, then i realized that i could do mobile uploads on Facebook and just copy them from there. Only problme is that these pics are way better then the ones i took. I will post the ABM LS i saw, as well as an IOM SS with CGM stripes.
Just so you guys know, a Red SS with GFX flew by me and it sounded nice

Since it had the GFX...think it might have had other GMPP items......like the performance mufflers maybe?

Possibly, it did sound nice but it wasnt too loud. Sorry guys, i tried to chase, heck im surprised i didnt get pulled over for the amount of cutting off i did, and then red light, and it was all pointless because this car was GONE

u mean you didn't want to cause an accident to see if there were symbols on the tops of the exhaust tips?
