    Balance was wrong and fell off backwards. Very dangerous.

    My guess is the dealer will buy it back, get an emergency replacement, fix it and keep it as a demo to be sold later.

    The mechanic might be looking for a new job somewhere.... this should never happen. Just carelessness that could have killed someone

    Could be but the source on Vette forum insists its a chevy dealer. I'm suspicious.

    I certainly can’t say for sure, but that doesn’t look like a Chevy dealer service Dept to me, but I defer to whomever posted the photo.
    Regardless, it’s a major screw-up.

    Look at 6:26. Major dealer almost had the car fall off. They warned that if someone takes off the front wheels it could be too unstable. That to me is what happened from the photo.

    Brown, orange, and purple. lime green car's look great at first sight. They're really hard on the eye to live with every day.

    I'm hoping the zo6 is all flared out and purposeful like the C8R, that way it can embrace its bigness and weight in a really agressive look.
    Is it true the car is delayed?

    Is it possible to get your Corvette in just one colour?
    The car looks great, but I don't like black bits here and there.

    Yes there is an option for base color paint in the side vents, the roof, in the front grill, the rear grills, and if its a convertible you can get that grill over the engine also in the main color

    But you cannot pick an choose which. Its all one or all the other.

    It costs about $800. Yep -- about 1/2 the cost of painting Ferrari calipers from flat black to red.
