It looks like the C8 has at least a decent amount of luggage space—both front and rear.

A front lift system can lift the nose up to two inches.

A "jet fighter for the road." Wasn't the C4 "an F16 for the freeway."

Once again, the engine compartment is being styled, something else that hearkens back to the early C4.

Good afternoon, all.

Now 27 pictures in the book, by Gris' way of counting.

Like many others on Guru, hunkering down for some serious heat later this week.

About three and a half days until the C8 introduction. Tick … tick … tick.

Its got Mag ride and that's supposed to be like the best but not feeling it. May be the Continental tires...when they wear out will replace with B-Stones.

I have had nothing but horrible experiences with Continental tires—I once accidentally put our Jaguar into a four wheel drift in the ones that it came with. Moving to Dunlop winter tires made the Jaguar handle better in the dry.

I do also concur with TeeBee's comment on how thin those stylish sidewalls are nowadays. Maybe drop either an inch or even two in wheel size?

Lee Iacocca passed yesterday—he was 94.

Many things are being written about him. I'll just say: Ford Mustang, Lincoln Continental Mark III, Dodge Aries/Plymouth Reliant, Dodge Caravan/Plymouth Voyager.

Good morning, all.

Storms came through last night and cooled things off a bit—cloudy and in the mid-70s right now in the Philadelphia area.

The University closes early this afternoon, so it's a short work day.

Good afternoon, all.

Just got back from Riviera Owner's Association annual meet. No, I don't have a Riviera … yet. Yes, it was amazing for helping me research my book. Pictures coming tomorrow.

In Corvette news, "The Last C7" brought $2.7 million for charity yesterday evening.

Final update—I think. Following post-race scrutineering, one GT Pro Ford GT and the only GT Am Ford GT were both disqualified for having oversized fuel tanks (both cars) and fueling too quickly (the GT Am car):

LMP1: Toyota #8, Toyota #7, BR Engineering #11

LMP2: Alpine #36 (6th overall), Oreca #38, Oreca #28

LM GT Pro: Ferrari #51 (20th overall), Porsche #91, Porsche #93 (Corvette #63 eighth in class and five laps down)

LM GT Am: Porsche #56 (31st overall), Ferrari #84, Ferrari #82

50 cars finished the race. Corvettes finished 28th and 57th overall.

So what is the deal … we got mostly the same guys driving as we have had in the past right? I thought it was the restrictions they put on the C7-R to keep it down and so called give the others a chance …

We used to beat the snot out of those other cars in the not to distant past … so what is up with that?

My opinions only:

1) The others have gotten better. There's no questioning that the Ford GT has raised the bar in GT Pro. The Ferraris are fast and they've stopped catching fire.

2) The others are coming with more cars. Ford brought four, which increases your odds. Ferrari also brought four and Porsche brought three.

3) We may have gotten all that is possible from a front engine car. It's notable that the top 8 finishers of the 17 GT Pro cars were mid-engine. It's also notable that the 911 has gone mid-engine after fighting it for over half a century.

4) Most uncomfortable to state—some of our drivers are getting old, while some of our number three drivers have not met expectations. Jan's mistake was an uncharacteristic one, and one I'm convinced he wouldn't have made five years ago. Marcel's mistake was a lack of patience with a bronze GT Am driver; sure, the driver should have given him more room, but Marcel shouldn't have put himself in the position of having to trust that driver.

I'm also still trying to get over the Corvette carnage at Le Mans—I think it'll take a couple of days. At this point, we've met all of the full-time drivers a couple of times, so there's some emotional involvement. No matter; later this week I'll shred the spotter's guide and move on …
