On May 5th we "dropped" in to the Eastern Carolina Corvette Clubs' show in Wilson, NC with our XLR. Originally I had anticipated driving my '58 Corvette but the weather was a bit threatening and I didn't want to chance getting caught in the nasty weather with a 49 year old car.

We know a few members in the club, so when we arrived we expected to park in the back and really didn't think that the Corvette guys and gals would be interested in the XLR....wrong! The club president had us park right up front with the C-6 Corvettes, even though we were not actually entered in the show!

The XLR had a steady stream of spectators and club members checking it out. The number one question that we had to answer all day was "Does it have a Corvette motor"? Many were surprised that it was Cadillac powered and even more had never seen one.

The folks of the Eastern Carolina Corvette Club treated us very nice and we enjoyed our time at the show. If any of you have a Corvette and are in the Eastern Carolina area...this is a very active club and I would highly recommend joining up with them....yes I am a new member.:thumbs

Elfred, here is another thought
This is so typical. Every day I have at least one person come up to me or is waiting at the car to ask questions and want to know if this is a prototype. GM has dropped the ball on advertising this machine and if it goes down like the Titanic, then it's their fault.

Funny you mention this . Yesterday my 16 yr old son and I went to a car show and I drove my Viper which is a kind of rare #9 of 100 Commemorative Edition white/blue stripes and he drove the black V. At least as many and probably more people were drawn to the V than the Viper.
