There is of course one notable difference between the horrible paint and body panel finish observed in the past and the current production year: the newest marketing gimmick, the Grand Sport corporate kit car, borrowing body panels from the still overheating and heat soaking +Tadge Juechter pride and joy, Z06 and mechanicals from the equally flawed base Stingray model introduces its own list of greatest UAW misses, with union zombies slapping the Grand Sports together and rolling the paint over them.

Thanks again UAW members and avid Corvette buyers for providing this peculiar kind of entertainment to the masses, relieved by the fact they are not the ones forced to deal with the ever greatest customer service and even more fabulous dealer body shops.
