Ambassador's Report:  The NCM annual bash was a huge success with over 350 cars in attendance.  The full factory and product team were there in person to answer questions about your cars, the 2023 70th Anniversary Edition, and of course the long awaited C8 Z06.  If you are lucky enough to get a 2023 Z06 allocation you can ask for the 70th Anniversary Edition of the Z06.  The release of the Hybrid Corvette in 2024 is also confirmed.  Harlin Charles announced that although the Corvette is going electric, this will be in addition to our beloved V8 version.

Both the 70th Anniversary Edition Stingray and the Z06 were there to see and sit in along with the engineering team from GM to answer questions.
