As of March 25, GM Stopped taking New C8 Orders

April 3, 2021 Off By Mike Vietro

gm c8 assembly

General Motors is no longer accepting new orders from dealerships for the 2021 Corvette, the automaker announced this week.

With demand for the C8 Corvette through-the-roof and the automaker experiencing several production stoppages this year, Chevy has been forced to close the order books for the 2021 model year. It will open for new orders for the 2022 C8 in early July.

The 2021 C8 started production on December 11th, 2020, so the early closing of the orders and switching over to the new 2022 will make 2021 model another limited production year.

We still don’t know what all the changes will be for the 2022 C8, but if the rumor mill is accurate, there will be at least one new model..

Mike Thumbs up

What Mike Likes about this Mercedes Benz:
“Turn back the hands of time to circa June 1978! Picture yourself in Southern California as a young green naïve salesman selling Toyota’s for the first time.

Fresh out of the Marines and determined to make my mark! Selling Toyota’s was easy when you believe in what you’re selling, and the product was so widely sought after.

It was there that I first laid my eyes on the most beautiful cocoa brown metallic 450SL I’ve ever seen.

The GM of the store was a handsome devil in his three-piece suit and carrying his attaché. This was probably his new demo that the store owner bought for him. Oh my!!  What a car! Glistening in the warm Southern California sunshine. Imagine driving this sleek Java sleigh around town. I would dream of owning such a car.

Well, a few years back I had the opportunity to do just that. Found nestled in a collection of rare Mercedes in Los Angeles was just the car. Sporting a mere 20,000 original miles.

I immediately made mention that at any time the owner might part with it to let me know. It wasn’t long after that that the phone rang, and the car was on its way to my garage! I’ve enjoyed owning this car for a number of years now and have kept it in literally as perfect condition as possible. Everything works down to the clock and even the air conditioning blows ice cold. It’s a car to enjoy for those Sunday cruises or to just sit static in your garage to admire while having a cocktail or coffee in the morning!!

Who might it’s next caretaker be? “

There are so many items in the Corvette-themed collection that he changed the way Guinness World Records classifies car collecting. Anyone can go on a giant shopping spree and buy a bunch of cars, Mallon said, but accumulating over 2,000 unique examples would take years. Eventually Guinness created a new category for “Corvette items,” and in 2012, Charles was awarded the world record.
