Considering the average new Corvette buyer age bracket, I am surprised GM didn't do the logical thing and offer a free Handicap sticker fixed somewhere prominent for its clientele. The Vette needed a real rethink, not an over the top restyle with the same FUCKING REAR LEAF SPRING it has almost always had, which as far as I know makes the fucker snap happy when adhesion is exceeded in the rear. Such lack of progressive break away saps driver confidence on public roads.
I thought the C6 tasteful, but it sold like reeking dog shit on a 100 degree day. So GM ran some fucking focus groups (their answer to everything and their biggest weakness) and those car moron human examples were interpreted by auto ignorant executives, thus this is what you get instead of a substantive rethink of the entire Corvette brand.
