    What should I buy?

    I am selling my GTO thursday. What should I get next??? I am waiting a couple months to pay some bills and then I am going to buy something else to play around with. The Trans Am is staying.

    I love the challengers styling, and I like the fact the cobra can be made fast real easy. The only doubt I have about a vette is it only has two seats. And the option for the other F-body, I would only buy one with Extremely low miles. Thanks for any input guys. And Termie owners please chime in... What are some common problems with your cars?

    I say 03-04 cobra. They're already fast out of the box and, like you said, can be made real fast real quick. The challenger would be nice, if you were retiring maybe? I see a lot more older people driving them than i do younger, middle aged people. No need for another TA if you already have one. If you're going Z06, just pull the trigger and get a c6 instead of a c5

    Eh, C6 is out of my price range. If I get a vette it is going to be a C5 Z06. You can find em pretty cheap. I love the challenger's looks even though they are slower. My buddy has one and it drives really nice and smooth too. The transmission is probably the nicest shifting manual I have ever driven.

    Here's my 2 cents. I sold my 2003 10th Anniversary Kenne Bell Cobra about a month ago because I stopped driving it and it was Killing me that it sat outside. I bought it New in 2003. I bought my C5Z06 three years ago and that pretty much stopped my from driving my Cobra.

    Even though the Cobra was not Stock and FLP motorsports in NaperVille IL installed a Kenne Bell 2.2L and Dyno-Tuned the Car. I chose to drive the my mildly Moded Z06. The Cobra made 540rwhp and was fun in a straight line when I it could hook up. I had Nitto 555r's on it. My Z06 has 450 RWHP and would kill my Cobra in overall Performance in every aspect. I could Feel it in the Seat of my Pants and My G-Tech Performance meter doesn't lie. My Cobra felt like a Boat compared to driving the Z06.!! Go for the Z06! You won't regret it. Plus Vetts have a special Magnet installed in them that attract women!..

    Thanks for the vote! I found a low miles Z06 locally that I am looking at pretty seriously. There is a cheap cobra in GA too. I think the Challenger is pretty much out due to the price.

    I have a special magnet that attracts women too... It's called a wedding ring. Does me no good.

    why not look into a base c6? they arent bad used, you can pick them up for mid to high $20k's. and they are gonna still be faster than anything your looking at now.

    They are still just a little too expensive. The cheapest one I have found is 25K around where I live

    I would rock those if I had a T/A. Firehawk replicas.

    I dont like them enough to pay that much for them. I dont hate them though. It would get rid of the headlight motor problem
