    The only negative I've heard about the new Corvette is that the seats are not comfortable, and it turns like... a Corvette.

    Go take one out for a hot lap and see what you think afterwards. Don't go on what you heard from the rice crowd or somebody that can't afford one and is making shit up.

I have a DD, a fun car to drive that gets great MPG, and the Camaro. But I don't want to put a million miles on the Camaro, and I HATE to admit it to myself, but I don't want to sit in an hours worth or more of traffic any more than the car does with that cam and clutch (after market and very hard to push on) everyday.
    So, I'm considering selling both the Camaro, and the DD and buying a new Vette. So I get 6 MPG less with the Vette, so what! What I save by insuring 1 less car a month should more than make up for it, and I get to drive my passion everyday, instead of just the weekends. My only concern is when it snows. My DD now is rear wheel drive and it's a hand full.
    why do u sit in hrs of traffic in your camaro when u have a DD......im so glad my city dosnt have traffic..lol

    lol, my body is in shape on a 45. My left leg gets a workout from traffic and my right arm is good from doing right arm curls!

    Edmunds wrote it go yell at them. As for my ricer friends it's a stretch to assume I have friends or that if I did they could afford ricer cars. Just kidding. Every Friday night we line up and they follow behind my Camaro as we race laps around the circle downtown while talking on our cell phones. If you don't think a Corvette steers like a Corvette what do you think a Corvette steers like?

    I only take Edmunds and the other mag reviewers stuff with a grain of salt. I think a lot of stuff they write about is biased. The only thing bad I found with the C6 so far is the cost of insurance. Sure everything can use more power, but that's to be expected. I don't get the steering thing though.

    The vette is really nice in the turns! So smooth and good grip. I wish I could take a C6 Z06 for a spin!

    I agree most fun I've had too! The C6 Z51 I drove was from a lot and I know the sales guy so he just tossed me the keys and said bring it back before we close. I had lots of fun in it! They have a new Z06 I'm going to talk to him about, but seeing it's new I doubt he could let me drive it. My wife said I could get it if I wanted to be single. It's red so I'd still have a red head!

    lol, did I mention she's a red head? I can't resist.... I'm working on paying stuff off and in a few years I'm planning on a used one for a DD and turn the T/A into a weekend toy. Cage it and what not.

    They have to find something negative so they compare it to a Porsche 911 turbo taking a corner and the amount of cushion in the seat. They want to put a luxury car seat in it.
