Why They Laugh At Us: Tron-Inspired C8 Has Internet In Uproar

Did this owner take his movie-fetish too far? I've sifted through the 400+ comments and found the most entertaining exchanges!

For the uninitiated, Tron is an early 80’s movie where a hacker and arcade owner is “digitally broken down into a data stream by a villainous software pirate known as Master Control and reconstituted into the internal, 3-D graphical world of computers.” It’s a little ironic that a Corvette themed around a movie about computers has many banging away in protest on their computers. If you want to take a nostalgic walk into this iconic 80’s movie, I’ve included the original trailer below.
