Wanted One Forever. Will Keep This One Forever. — Its no slouch stock, but if 350 hp/ 375 tq isn't enough LS-series engines are very great engines to build up. Cold-air intake exhaust and a flash program will net a lot of performance for the buck. It handles like, well, ummm.... a Corvette! The styling of the C5 compared to the C6 is not as aggressive, but I believe it is sleeker/sexier. Also, the C5 has more interior space than the C6 and, in my oppinion, a more aesthetically pleasing not only to look at, but to function in as well. Another bonus is the suprising amount of storage available in the back. Even with the targa top secured in the back, the storage compartments that are built in offer plentiful storage oppurtunity. A contributing factor to the amount of storage was the lack of a spare tire. This is because the front and rear wheels ae two different diameters, and the tires are rotational. That also means that because of the lack of a spare tire, all Corvettes meant for the street need to have Run-flats installed. They are expensive to say the least. Some could look at this as a benefit though and say that I wont beat on my car as much. In the end, EVERYTHING on the car will last longer, and will HOPEFULLY be cheaper to maintain. That thought process is out there, I know, but work with it ; ). Some of you may say that insurance and gas on a Corvette must be rediculous, but it is only $20 more per half to insure the Corvette(in my name) than to insure a new Chevy Aveo(in my name). That is 11 cents a day I know that I am willing to spend. As for gas, If I am driving to get good gas mileage, 30-32 mpg is no problem at all. I do play around a bit though, but on average get mid-20's. One of my favorite parts about it is that it is MINE! Corvettes are one of the most affordable true sports cars, but in my age range, there is a certain amount of exclusivity about me being a 22 year old driving my Corvette around.

Bang For The Buck — Had this car for four years so far, It fits me nicely, no other car can replace this for the price. Bone stock, dynoed 360rwhp 350rwtq on mustang dyno. ran 12.3@116 in the 1/4 mile. Traction control and stability kicks in when it gets out of hand. feel pretty dummy proof. descent gas mileage, usually get 18mpg around town 28-32mpg on the highway thanks to the gearing. Head turner, handles great, Drivers car. cant go wrong with a C5 Z06

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Nice — the best BANG 4 the buck and very fast car for only 350 HP stock, beaten all the way to a 600 hp VIPER A LOT of mods for it, just wished they made a 4WD option for it, my tires only last 10k miles no wind turbulence even at 140, after 140, only driven with top down

Fast, light, great handling, 30mpg highway

Cons

Low, cleaned it more than I drove it.

Mah Z06 — What's not to say about the Z06? I bought it after having a supercharged Mustang. The build quality is superb compared to the stang. Tight as a drum. It still stands as the best roadtrip car I've ever owned. Just make sure you change the stock tires out, they are VERY noisy on the highway.

Best Performance Car For The Money! — Best in the world performance. Flimsy building materials though. There's a few electrical issues. Everyone turns their heads to look at it. It gets great gas mileage for its horsepower, and is a very comfortable every day driver. All around a 9.9 out of 10 car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Zo6 Rocks! — Everyone should have a ZO6, power is immense, mine is lightly modified, improved handling, power, easy to maintain and modify. LG Pro long tubes, ported throttle body, CCW T1 tracks wheels, Pfadt sway bars, Bilsteins, Halltech CAI and SCT tune, TFS heads and Vengeance cam standing by.

Fast, good looking and easy to drive.

Cons

Gets really hot in the summer and the glass removable top is a little cumbersome.

Best Performance For The Money Period! — I love this car! It has all the performance you will ever need, and it has plenty of cargo spaced thanks to the larger than average trunk. The top can be hard to manage some times and you need to upgrade the tires to get the most out of the car, but this is Corvette is one mean ride!

Pros

Rocket acceleration,  on rails handling,  and a blast to drive fast.

Cons

The usual complaint with GM as a whole and Corvettes in particular... cheap interior.

55

The Beast — My 2002 Z06 was a beast... bottom line. It was quick as hell, handled like it was on rails, sounded like a NASCAR, and had a menacing look when it first came out. I added long tube headers, Borla exhaust, short throw shifter, VaraRam CAI, and various other doo dads to make it a little more fun and more like I wanted it. All in all, the Z06 was and still is one of my favorite cars of all time.

Power, handling, braking, style, presence, fuel mileage (when driven appropriately), unbelievable bargain at the time.

Cons

Seats have no lateral support, still carries that old gold chain wearing stigma with some people.

65

Best Car I've Ever Owned By Far, Everything I Wanted. — This car had face peeling acceleration, ridiculous lateral grip, and ass clenching braking.
