It's a Z06 for crying out loud!

Cons

Absolutely nothing

You Just Gotta Get One Of These. — Do I really need to say anything about the awesomeness of this car? I didn't think so. I don't think I've ever had more fun driving a car in my life. If you have never driven one, what are you waiting for?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
