Our friends over at Jalopnik turned us on to this video from Regular Car Reviews who recently reviewed a 2008 C8 Corvette Coupe. This isn’t the the kind of review your used to reading though and that’s why it’s so good.
The review is a straight voiceover while the Atomic Orange C6 is shown driving around some wet, soggy streets. There’s some complaining about the CAGS forcing shifts from 1st gear to 4th gear but we all hate that, right? The reviewer seems to have some special insight into Corvette owners because he says once you’ve defeated the CAGS by snipping wires and pulling fuses, the personalization fever takes hold and now causes you to want to make your vette your own.
Our favorite line from the review is also the same line that Jalopnik used for their headline: “There is no casually liking Corvettes. The C6 is a car around which to revolve your life.”
How true is that!
But perhaps the best part comes when he starts talking about the lifestyle. “Once your into Vettes, you’re into them…” and then there’s a great line about saving your shopping spree money for parts at Corvettes at Carlisle too. In fact, there’s a couple of references to Corvettes at Carlisle including a fantastic Callaway comment as well.

If you enjoyed this, there is also Regular Car Review of a 1979 C3 Corvette that’s just as good.
