Yes for reason unknown Scaley chose to put out the "plain white" version before the painted versions. Talking with Scaley U.S.A today and even they aren't sure why. His comment to me was that perhaps it was done so that the reviews could be put out on the plain ones as far as running gear and performance is concerned and maybe drum up that much more interest in them when the painted ones hit the shelves......
As far as the lights go... the L88 had flip open headlight covers that didn't help aero effcts very much for racing. Teams typically took those off and replaced them with plexi covers with a little less wind resistance..

I believe it is actually a pile driver.
I'm not fond of polls (!) but I would be curious to know the general feeling about plain white cars as an alernative to pre-liveried versions.
Are they viable in Europe?
If not, why not?
And why might USA favour them more than Europe?
Or is this not the case?
The plain white Corvette is being released in the UK. I believe that only a very limited number are being brought over, though I would guess this could just be to test the market.
If they are popular, I'm sure more will be brought over.
As to why they might be more popular in the US, I don't know. I would tend to agree with it though, we don't get many enquiries about them, and the previous ones don't seem to generate that much interest (on eBay for example).
This would suggest that the main Sport editions are imminent though.
