Last year a team of Corvette employees conducted an extensive state-to-state evaluation of the new Z06 before B.G. was allowed to ship the cars. Does anyone know if/when that is scheduled before the plant releases the '02 Z06 to the dealers?

Zippy,

If I remember right, Russ said they test them every year during the plants 2 week shut down. Those Vettes aren't for sale to the public.

Thanks Frank....I was wondering if we could get a sneak preview of the '02 Z06 by knowing where/when these cars are.

Frank,

I'll be in BG the entire week of June 12 and expect to see some 2002's. As usual, I do some pretty good snooping in the back lot. I've even driven in there when the gate was open and drove around. I will try my best to get some photos. Although, by that time we may be seeing many spy photos anyway.

Joe
