    I am a sucker for a c5z done up right like these. I think they look better than a base c6. IMO

    Without reading the other posts I would get the C6 just for the nicer interior! No more cheap plastic etc etc and with mods you can make the C6 just as quick, can change the interior however at least not without it being a PITA

    C6 FTW. Its a newer car and puts out the same HP as the z06. i think the c6s look better and you don't have to deal with the pop up head lights.

    I am goin to give my input on this one. I just bought an 2008 base C6. Blk/Blk. The C6 has more power potential cause bigger cubes 376 than the C5 No head light flip up IMO just an overall newer car.

    Its all what you prefer, i think the c5 Z06 is sexxier than a c6. both can be done right but its what you want and what you can afford. Good luck

    2002 Trans Am WS6 traded

    personally--I dearly miss my removable roof. I drove a C5 Zo6 when trading my ws6, but couldn't justify the price with hardtop... My mustang is a hardtop-but still couldn't justify convertible price and i'm not a big fan of any convertible body style really... Would definately take C6 with targa--actually very likely my next car

    Im in the same boat, will be paying off the truck soon and will be ready for my first vette.

    Currently leaning toward the C5 Z06 because of the hard top and lighter weight.

    if want to save monies ,go for c-5, zo6.! but if you want best/fastest go for a c-6 models, including 2006 zo6 and newer.!! i have ownered two c-5 zo6's a 2002 and 2004, with factory carbon fiber hood, they are good corvettes. but 427 cubes/100 more horsepower,better handiling, no pop up headlights,and better aerodynamics, etc. rkvette

    You know I don't mean to be a dick but you keep throwing out this C6Z as if there just as easy to get as any other vette. You know if money was no object than of course the C6Z, hell if money was no object I'd have a ZR-1 in my garage right now. The fact of the matter is most people can't afford a C6Z right now. The last time I looked at a used one there still in the $50K range. If the OP could afford a C6Z im sure as hell he wouldn't be asking about a C5Z or a C6. So although I would agree the C6Z is a superior car than the two were discussing, its pretty much a moot point.

    I think if you shop around you get a better deal on the C5 Z06 just make sure you get the car you want in the long run you know when it's the right car for you, it will keep you up at night to you guy LOL.
    good luck on the hunt

    many pros and cons of each. Drive either and pick what YOU feel looks best and has the best interior. remember that you will be driving, and the interior is all you will see when you do.

    My take on each:

    C5Z

    Cheaper
    Looks better
    Looks better slammed with 19/20s


    C6

    Targa roof
    Better Interior
    Still looks sick with 19/20s
    Can put c6z Body panels on
    Bigger motor. free hp


    If it were me, c5z all the way. lowered on 19/20 HREs and I would use the extra money to build a huge 400ci + stroker.
