Hello all,

I was at the Corvette Driving Days in Hamburg last week. I had a week off, so I took the Friday morning to participate. I drove the C06 and the Z06. Great cars!!!! And the milage at 'normal' driving is amazing! Better than my 06 CTS!

Here are some pics of the day, organised by the Cadillac & Corvette dealer in Hamburg.

The Z06 in the first pictures is modified. Is that a Ferrari (themed) rear?
Enjoy the pictures.

Very nice pics! Someone please clean up the puddle beneath the red 2 door old school convertible (is that an Eldo or a Coupe De Ville?)!

thanks!

That is a '69 Coupe DeVille. And it seems his transmission is leaking...

For the flip side of the car coin, go sit in a black leather recliner in the middle of the showroom floor at the Ferrari/Maserati dealer in Naples, Italy. You can actually feel your credit cards quivering in fear..................

70Eldo.........Thanks for the pics. It would appear that GM does fairly well on the European scene........(Germany, anyway...)

...yeah, and your girl is actually crying already... :D

BTW, I know nothing about that black Maserati in that showroom. What is that little black lever on the console, in front of the shifter? I mean, If you know about it. I have a picture of it, but did not upload it yet.

It is not the same, but you can see similar one here:

Yes. That's what I mentioned. ;)
Actually, Europe has official Cadillac dealers since 2003. Before that, Cadillac and Corvette was sold by bigger Opel dealers. So, big improvement!

Oh, does anyone have some tips on the conversion of the pictures before you post them. I guess I do it wrong, because the quality of the pictures I post are horrible compared to the original pictures. I kept the resolution the same and made the picture size slightly smaller, but I guess the conversion reduces only picture quality to reduce the file size... should I just reduce the resolution? Or just the picture size? Or both? Please help! Thanks!
