That looks fairly normal to me a full operational temperature in Summer heat, actual temp may be a little lower but to see that you will need a scanner and have it set on live data to view actual temp readings.

That looks normal. Run a search in the C5 forums over at the Corvette Action Center: http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/forums/1997-2004-corvettes/
