Waterford Hills

Above – September 21, 2003 – Stills and a montage from a video that shows two C6 test cars hot lapping what is reported to be the Waterford Hills race track near Detroit in late August, 2003.

Second GM C6 Photo

Above – September 27, 2003 – This is said to be a picture taken during C6 pilot build at the Corvette plant at Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Third GM C6 Photo

Above – October 2, 2003 – On page 34 of the November(?), 2003 Car & Driver magazine is this photo of what is said to be a C6 headlight shown behind GM North America president Gary Cowger. The date and location of the photo were not identified but since it is a “Brenda Priddy & Co.” photo, I would assume it was not intended by GM for public release. Someone apparently shot it without permission during a speech.

Pix from Germany

Above – October 13, 2003 – From the German web site .

Most Revealing Yet!!

Above – November 12, 2003 – These were said to have been taken July 23, 2003 at an unidentified location. 

Above – November 12, 2003 – This one has been lightened to show the exhaust and back up lights(?) better.

Hot Wheels

Above – December 4, 2003 – Hot Wheels breaks cover with the first art released to the public by someone who has actually seen the car (pic probably NOT released with GM approval, however).

Above – December 13, 2003 – Hot Wheels is apparently going to do a cartoon version also. Might be the first good look at the actual grille and headlight design. Also – check that creased roof!

Above – December 13, 2003 – Quote: (pic probably NOT released with GM approval, however). Just after I found the second Hot Wheels pic both of them disappeared from the Mattel web site and were replaced by the statement above. 

Minutiae (mi no’oshee e’e  – plural noun – small details: small or trivial details)

Above – December 19, 2003 – In the never-ending search to uncover every scrap possible, here are two more scraps. The first is, according to sources,  the new C6 logo. The second is a shot from a new Chevy ad campaign with, what is reported to be, a C6 on the front of a car carrier (see Kopf car carrier photo shoot up several places). Honest, I don’t make this stuff up.


Above – December 21, 2003 – Reported to be a press photo thumbnail – looks a lot like the Hot Wheels art – enjoy!!??
