Should General Motors Add this Color to the Corvette C8 Color Options?

We noticed one of the new Mid engine Corvette C8 owners changed the color of their Corvette as soon as they got it. Most of the time people will go with a wrap especially on YouTube where it has become a standard video for upload to show a new wrap on whatever new car they just got not just the C8 Corvette.

Also, Car or Vehicle Wraps even without a color chosen protect the paint on cars as well. However, Pure Automotive actually painted theirs at their shop!

To give you some background and per their YouTube Channel, Pure Automotive Performance is the parent company of FastC8.com and SwapYour86.com.

Established in June of 2012, we are a one stop shop for general automotive repair, automotive performance upgrades, and custom automotive paint and body. -FastC8.com is our newest addition, it will be your source for any and everything C8 Corvette related! We hope to be developing our own line of parts, as well as testing and installing all the aftermarket parts available for the C8 !

Here is their videos of painting a Corvette C8 what they call PPG Spitfire Green and we love it! It reminds of us of the exotic car green you see on Lambos and McLarens and we think Chevy and GM should add this green to their line up!

Here is the Paint process for getting their Corvette C8 this amazing green and a video of a recent car meet with another YouTuber ItalianStallion410.

General Motors Replaces C8 Corvette Engine in Less than 3 Weeks!

Recently, one of first 2,700 Corvette C8s had an engine blow up and seize from an engine rod bering. We reported on it a few weeks ago and have been updating the C8 engine post ever since.

In part 4 of the video below MidwestRide Jake on YouTube explains how fantastic the experience was with his local Chevy Dealer Friendly Chevy and the service advisor Gene.

Also, the engineers at GM were quick to have the engine pulled and replaced in less than 3 weeks and the car delivered back to Jake.

He shares how great the experience was and just goes to show the GM and Chevy brand is alive and well. He said at first he didn’t really want to share this even happened in the first place but the video happened initially with a big YouTube Tall Guy Reviews and he wasn’t sure if he would keep his C8 Corvette when it first happened.

However, after having an amazing experience with Friendly Chevrolet in Minnesota and the GM engineers in Detroit, MI he is going to keep it.

Not only did they give him a FREE engine which of course its under warranty they replaced the starter and fuse box as well and didn’t even have to. They also told him that the 500 mile break in is really for the DCT or dual clutch transmission so he should be good to go.

Lastly, another big point he makes is there is nothing close on the car market that can touch the C8 Corvette when it comes to value and even when he looked it was used older supercars like Ferrari and Mclaren that were still $135k an up and again nowhere close the value that the C8 Corvette provides. And for all the haters or whiners about “don’t buy a first run car blah blah blah” he has a message for them at the end since it really didn’t matter now did it? Guess they never heard of a warranty!

Check out the Video below for more details about MidwestRide Jake’s experience with General Motors, Chevrolet and his Corvette C8 engine getting replaced.

Took My C8 in for it’s First Oil Change by StreetSpeed717

Also, another tip for changing your oil on your C8 Corvette is either have a professional auto repair shop handle it for you or put down epoxy garage flooring since epoxy floors help with reducing garage stains. Most Garage Door Repair companies will do epoxy garage floor coatings or you can find a company that specializes in it. Just like if you needed a car wrap in Phoenix or window tinting in Scottsdale you can do a Google search and see what companies are on the first page that specialize in that specific service.

Country Music Artist Brad Paisley Takes Museum Delivery of a C8 Corvette

Award-winning country music artist and Nashville, TN area resident Brad Paisley took delivery of his 2020 Long Beach Red Stingray Corvette at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. Brad, a long-time enthusiast, has owned a number of Corvettes and shared his excitement to pick his newest model up through the Museum.

His grandfather was a Pontiac sales man and he said the first car  he bought with his royalty money was a 1995 C5 Corvette.

He was there to build the engine on his last corvette but highly recommends the Corvette Museum delivery as well.

What’s It Like To Daily Drive A 2020 C8 Corvette

Youtuber, Corvette Direct goes over what its like to daily drive a 2020 C8 Corvette. And is it even possible? Let me know what your daily driver is and if you think you could daily drive a sports car!

As he points out in the video it’s very practical and easy to drive daily. There is also a decent amount of space in the frunk and the back trunk behind the engine and it gets pretty good gas mileage but as we all know most people buying the midengine corvette C8 aren’t worried about these features anyway.

Some points Corvette Direct makes in this video about daily driving a C8 Corvette

  • Gas Mileage good
  • Ride Height is great barely need to use the front lift if you have one
  • Storage space is decent for trips the grocery store, CVS or home depot
  • It’s comfortable and still good for long trips
  • GT1 seats are more comfortable as well as the GT2 but the Competition seats are more for track vs daily driving
  • It could be your only car if you were single or married couple with no family, kids, or dogs.
