    ever ride in one? a guy i work with has owned several z06s 02-04 and ive riden in 2 of them.....car is sick...think of your car going 12 sec in the quarter with much less drama.....and it brakes WAAAAAAAAY better than a stock fbody...and handling....no comparison as well.....make sure u get an 02 or newer though...and buy a stock one from an old man that can afford to lose 20k in a few yrs......much better chance the car has been babied/zanioed etc ..now that i own a 450 hp fbody i can definitly compare an fbody that is very similar in acceleration...dunno if im faster yet......hope to find out soon enough.. ..i paid 19,500 for my car though.....and 02 with low miles will cost ya low 30s....lotta loot but itll hold its value really well to...look at 97s with 50kmiles plus..they still go for low to mid 20s .........DO IT !!! its prolly my next ride.....or if i wait long enough a used 06 z06 ..see how well they hold there value....im prolly dreaming

    I swore that I would never sell my WS6. But then I took my friends Z06 for a weekend. The 'Vette is awesome!! Better power, better handling, better braking. The only thing is that there are a million of them on the road. On a 4 hour trip to Buffalo, I typically see 10 - 15 'Vettes and on a rare occasion I'll see a Trans Am. And even rarer yet I'll see a WS6. I'm still torn on my decission. Maybe in acouple of years I'll look for a 50th anniversary Z06.

    I live near Cooperstown and go to Buffalo about once a month to see the in- laws. It's about 265miles one way. Haven't been to Rochester in a while, but I'm dying for a garbage plate.

    Dont forget its much cheaper to get a ws6 or even a formula and mod it to out perform the z06 in breaking, handling, and acceleration. The only thing you can match without some serious weight reduction is the weight of the new z06
