Pros

Fastest Car around

Cons

Leaking roof in the rain...wait don't drive this in the rain.

Fast. — Highly modified, nothing about my car should be used by others as a basis to buy one of their own. Tons of HP with the giggle juice and about 8mpg in and around town. Really need to get the car to the dealership to fix some electrical gremlins that are the result of a few years in storage and notorious GM un-reliability in that area.

Classic Muscle Car New Or Old, 100 In 3rd Gear; Oh Yea — NO dislikes couldn't think of a single thing to change, well maybe the gas mileage but hey its a sports car. Mechanically not much maintenance to be done if you take care of them like any corvette lover would. A+

Everyone Should Own A Vette At One Time Or Other In Their Life! Don't Know What Your Missing. — This C5 is a blast to drive. Handles great, shifts smoothly, and "does the dance" when you want it to. I love the Torch Red color and the cargo area is spacious enough for anything I wanted or needed to bring home.

American Muscle — The car is fast as hell doing 86 in 2nd gear is something else, its got good pick up but the body is flimsy and is easlly cracked, but with all fiber glass bodies they all will be, its a fun car to drive and ride in thanks to my dad for letting me drive it!

Vette — My 1997 corvette is my favorite car I've owned. It has been nearly problem free. There are so many after market parts available I was able to customize it to my liking. I always get compliments on it. Also very fun to drive. Go buy a vette and try to race me!

Good mpg, awesome performance, great handling

Cons

Electrical issues

Best Bang For Your Buck In The World. — Drove one, had to have one immediately. I've driven all sorts of vehicles and the acceleration, handling and braking on the Corvette is superb. Parts are cheap and easy to replace, and you can buy one for less than you think!
