Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible
...and now for our next trick..!
... and now for the host and star of our show...
Like it or not
I took the new Corvette Stingray Convertible out and through its paces just yesterday, which by the way had to be very limited because of the rain.
Now having a whole lot of experience with the Targa top version of this car I didn't expect it to be that much of a difference and it really wasn't. But here is what I noticed immediately..
The first really noticeable difference is how quiet this car was with a soft top. I said to myself they must've slipped me a soft top, under a hardtop, under a soft top, but it was not. It was truly the genuine article. The top is extremely soft canvas yet extremely thick and durable and honestly except for the slight claustrophobia, because to me, it is a little tight with the top up, (owners will get used to it), it almost borders on riding in a hardtop, it's just that quiet and good.. The car was extremely solid, with absolutely no cowl shake. It soaks up bumps like no car this class should be able to. The steering was Corvette solid as we expected to be as were the brakes. For both the cold and the rain that I had to deal with while driving the Corvette Stingray Convertible, I thanked God for glass rear window with the defogger.. And then there was a tan top with the tan interior, something I have lusted for since the premier of this car at the Geneva auto show.
