Pros

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.

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

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.

Most Fun Car I've Ever Owned — Wow, at the time, 405 hp was amazing. Now the base vette has more. And the current Z06 has 500+ and the new ZR1 will have 600+. This car was still a blast to drive and was an awesome deal.

One Car That"s Loads Of Fun To Drive And Gets Impressive Gas Mileage — I own a 2002 Magnetic red Vette. Neat that you can have a car you can be proud of and gets good fuel economy at the same time. You know other car fans when you pass by and they stop and look and wave. It"s one of the most fun cars I"ve ever had and enjoy detailng it and it shows your hard work.

Lots Of Fun For Little Money — The C5 Corvette (1997-2004) made Corvette the best performer for dollars spent. The car has a proven, reliable drivetrain that delivers outstanding performance without the penalties typically associated with a sports car. It really does achieve 25-26 mpg at higher than legal speeds. It is build for cruising - handling improves with speed. Ride is remarkably comfortable, and cargo capacity is amazing. I love to take this on weekend trips. Finally, it is beautiful just sitting in the driveway - an automotive work of art.

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

Extremely Enjoyable Performance Car — Beautiful car. Easy to work on in. Parts available anywhere. Excellent fuel mileage. Great curb appeal :). Fun to drive. We enjoy going to car shows, parades and drives. A lot of people are surprise with the excellent gas mileage for a near 400 HP (stock 350 HP) engine. Very dependable vehicle. A lot of storage for luggage and other items in rear hatch area.

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

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
