C7's Caught on the Street

During my lunch yesterday, happened to catch and meet 3 of GM's "mule" driver's. Very nice gentlemen. Video of them driving, and parked for a walk around. ENJOY :]

I wonder what's with the taillights blinking like that. Is it a problem with the car or are they designed to do that. The white truck in front of the video car wasn't flickering.

That's as far as I got in the video due to the horrible music and the constant cussing.

That's what I was wondering. vette_85, did you take this video yourself? Did you notice the lights flickering in person? I'm wondering if it's because LEDs run at a frequency that's out of sync with the camera (kind of like when you record an old CRT monitor in a video, and those horizontal bars flicker across the screen... it's a video artifact that isn't really there). Thanks for the video.

edit: Oh, you already explained it in your most recent post... missed it. Yeah, that's what I figured.

Why is it easier to be a conservative than a liberal? Because it is easier to give a man the finger than a helping hand.

Makes sense LED'S can be tricky to record

It's the LEDs. The human eye can't see it, but cameras pick it up because they can only film at a set amount of frames per second. It's not an issue.

More or less that they were test driving to find any kinks they may need to address. I asked him how the Direct Injection feels and the taller GENTLEMEN coming out of the BLUE one said "the torque and control is unbelievable, so fun to drive". Telling me that the black one was indeed a z51 w/the 7spd. The others base model. And of course that there getting stopped everywhere for pictures ha. Very cool guys though. Taller one was the most talkative. Other 2 seemed a little quieter, and i dont want to say "annoyed", but not as willing to talk about the car. So i didnt want to be a bother and let them have there lunch. I snapped a few more photos and had to get back to the shop for work I wish my lady would have gotten more of a walk around in the video, but the camera was dying. She liked the car on tv, and now LOVES the car seeing it now in person.
