Excellent — I've owned this car since it was brand new in 2005 and I still love it. It drives great - handles well, lots of power, and it's very comfortable. The braking is exceptional. The seats are fully adjustable and "hug" you, making you feel secure. Great sound system.

Great Sports Car For The Money. — This thing is blazing fast! It's american, so quality is what you'd expect, although it has quite a few luxury features. I love not having to take the keys out of my pocket or unlock the passenger door! Gas mileage averages 26-28 on long trips, 15-18 in town, 10-12 if you nail it every time you start. Way too much fun to drive!

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

Worth The Money, Much Better Than The C5! — Sleek, Sexy, Fast, and Sharp! This is a car I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a less expensive sports car as opposed to the traditional sports car (Porsche's, BMWs, Nissan Z's) Most assuredly a fun car to drive!!

Gotta Love It! — I just love it! Performance is incredible! Quick acceleration, great braking and handling. Fuel filler door latch had to be replaced. Looks are superior. Tons of room for luggage. This car is so much fun to drive. I love it.

Can't Beat Owning A Corvette — Performance - acceleration. 30K miles and tight as a drum. Corsa exhaust, Cray wheels, black-outs. 18MPG/ city, 26-28 mpg highway. Only thing I'd change - the shifter is a little sloppy - 6spd, not an automatic. Not that I need it, but an attention getter.

My Cobra's A Vette — The "looks" it generates. First year of the newest body style and the last year of the "LeMans Color". Look for excuses to drive it. Use it primarily in local car shows. Upon my initial ownership, found it had (2) broken wires in the harness, resulting in erroneous error of service the traction system. Clear Blue removable top squeeks now and then. Mileage is good, and Fun Factor is "OFF THE CHAIN !

Very Impressed — Bought a yellow 2005 conv used in Dec 08. It was very well cared for with many upgrades to include Corsa exhaust, Z51, ceramic brakes, HUD, 6 spd manual, Bose stereo and some other cosmetic touches. Have found, however, some minor electronic glitches that are very annoying. My Service Handeling System Light keeps coming on. I traced it to the Steering Wheel Position Sensor after much research. Believe I have it fixed, but what a pain to have the light come on in the dash every day. Also had the engine light come on and no code displayed. Cleared it by disconnecting the battery and reseting the system. In addition, the radio volume kept jumping all over the place. Tracked it to the auto speed adjustment for the radio volume. Dealer told me I would have to relace the head unit. Just turned it off with no other problems. I love the car, but the electric problems are a pain.

Modified Corvette C6 — Awesome car to drive, it goes from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 sec, top speed of 300 km/h and take corners at high speeds. It has a 6L V8 engine with +450HP after a few modification's. Looks great, sound awesome and is just lots of fun to drive unless roads are wet because then it is not possible to get enough traction.

Pros

     LS2 engine- uses same bolt patterns of LS1 and LS6 etc.     Near 50/50 weight distribution and suspension geometry- neutral in corners depending on front/rear tire selection.     Seating- 6 axis bucket seats hold you quite well; with adjustments to suit your figure.

Cons

     Laminate issues- roof and b-pillar are glued to a frame.      Leather Shift Knob- very slippery with wet hands.     Leaf Springs!?- Nonetheless they get the job done very well.

2005 Chevrolet Corvette Z51 -modified — I love it! Great chassis, amazing engine, great ergonomics, good stereo; I couldn't be more pleased with such a car. 25 additional thousand dollars in well spent mods' and you have a very able car. One that mixes it up with many of the worlds top Supercars. From a racing standpoint it's as simple as that.
