We had a nice run up to Tulare less than an hour north of Bakersfield this past Wednesday to view the brand new 2020 C8 Corvette. Nine intrepid travelers plus a guest drove north on the 99 to Merle Stone Chevrolet and were met up by several other members of our club (16 Corvettes in all) that showed up later. The object of our trip was to see the local unveiling of the new mid engine C8 Corvette and boy were we impressed. Many minds were changed and who knows how many members took the plunge to get on the ordering list for the new mid engine Corvette. At least three members have committed to get on the waiting list and put in an order.
Many thanks to the managers and sales people at Merle Stone Chevrolet for hosting this event. We had a great time taking turns getting into the driver’s and passenger’s seat of the gorgeous Elkhart Lake Blue Corvette and asking a multitude of questions about its capabilities.
Food was provided by Mariscos Colima of Fresno, Hanford and Oakhurst. The tacos were delicious and were provided the whole day for all customers coming to the dealership in conjunction to its grand opening.
