    Re: opinions on the 2005 corvette Z06

    ahhh....well we will probably get a C6 (LOVE ORANGE).....but that damn Z06 has estimates anywhere from 65-75 thousand......we definantly cant afford that.....but hell even with the automatic we would get the C6 base still does 0-60 in 4.6 sec....cant beat that.....not even with a stick.

    Re: opinions on the 2005 corvette Z06

    It's nice to see that they've upgraded the look of the vette (no folding headlights). I personally have always been a fan of the StingRay editions they made in the 70s.

    The guy who bought my C5 says I should buy one so he can buy it from me later. This spring my wife will probably start asking about it, too. I just may do that in a couple years.

    Re: opinions on the 2005 corvette Z06

    I was reading some of the Vette boards and was cracking up! Most of the owners of the current Z06s were trashing it, trying to find flaws that weren't there, jealous bastards.

    This one is off topic but I just saw a advertisement clip on tv of an 05 GTO and it's got 6 liter now with 400 horses! Maybe everyone knows about it, I just don't follow the latest news.

    Re: opinions on the 2005 corvette Z06

    that is the best car ever.

    No but seriously. I will own one of these, this is the first modern Vette I actually WANT to own, rather than just consider. I wanted a CTS-V for along time, but I might just hold out for the Z06 price to come down and snatch one of these.

    It will be PERFECT. Ill drive around a luxury car for just a couple more years, and then snag one of these. Ive always wanted a real genuine sports car, and this is as good as it gets without spending unreal gobs of money. I dont even want to know what will happen to this car with modifications, that is a SCARY thought.

    It's going to take 820hp in my 75 Caddy just to keep up with it. Maybe in a couple years I'll have that taken care of, that would be sweet.
