Departing Decatur, AL

Inside the Museum there were 7 C7s on Corvette Boulevard.
Everybody got to actually sit in the 6 coupes, but not the single convertible.

Outside I was amazed to find David & Kathleen Huber's
1-of-3 Gatorade Pace Car!

To the Plant for the only tour in a year!
They had 2 groups of 30 C7s on the line.
The main thing I noticed was a major increase in robotics.
(Of course, no cameras or cell phones allowed!)

It was great to see friends from New Hampshire here, Dan & Claudia Feidler, with their Wil Cooksey Edition.

I really love the C7 in Cyber Gray and this color interior, called Kalahari.

The back with the lights on.

Retired Plant Manager Wil Cooksey makes sure he can fit in the C7.

First time I'd seen the new office.
