    At first I thought your age was a typo-o. But after "trying" to read your cheesy Internet slang, I realized that you must in fact be 17.

    So...I will continue with my thoughts:

    You are 17 years old right? So why in the Hell do you have a GTO? You may defy the odds, but more times than not, a Corvettes/ GTOs, and a 17 year old is not a good mix.

    Example -- Nick Hogan (Hulk Hogan's son) wrecked his Highly modified Supra not too long ago. Why. Because he is young and dumb. There is no substitute for experience. I am not saying you are a bad driver, You may in fact be a great driver. I am just saying in general a 17 year old will usually get in trouble with machines like that.

    So be safe and have fun. I would have loved to have either car when i was 17. But looking back, I am glad I didn't have a cars like these.

    I own a vette and have driven a few GTO's. Both are really nice cars. The GTO is more practical however I like the feel of my vette much much better. My advice would be to drive a few C5's. The cars are totally different animals.

    I honestly could barely read this response.

    And My opinion of GTO vs Corvette is largley based off of age/ size of family. etc.

    For example. If you were married with 2 kids and only had one other car, I would say you should keep the GTO. If you are single and plan to be single for awhile, and don't need much cargo room, I would say get the vette.

    However knowing you are a 17 year old guy, who can't even type out a simple message without using ridiculous ghetto interent slang, makes me think you should be driving a civic ex, or maybe if you really wanted to get sporty the Si model.

    Congrats on making $14.00 bucks an hour at 17 years old. My suggestion is to use that money and invest in some sort of college courses that will teach you to communicate on a somewhat understandable level.

    I am not an English major, (far from it actually) and I am sure you could find a typo and a run-on sentence or two, but your post is quite ridiculous. With that said, I firmly believe neither car belongs in your drive way, or parents drive way or whatever.

    But if you would like to know which one I like better, without knowing your background. I would rather have the C5. (Assuming it is in great condition)

    This was just a quick glance over your response. I am sure there are more "mistakes".

    I already tried explaining to you, how age, along with other variables, play a large roll which car I would pick.

    Sorry if I offended you, but honestly, your ridiculous ghetto fabulous typing style offends me. I think America's youth, is going down hill, and they are doing it faster than ever.

    In a world or text messages, ebonics, and ghetto slang, our "kids" are putting America behind the power curve in the world's eyes.

    Again, I know I am not perfect with punctuation and spelling, and I am sure you can easily correct my post. My point is; When you portray yourself as a moron, you will often be classified as one.

    So when I see a 17 year old, self portraying himself as a moron, I personally don't want to see you behind the wheel of either car. This is for the safety of you, and all others on the road.


    So are we okay, or are we now "Internet Enemies"? LOL..

    PS-- assuming you are Single, and if you have to drive one of these cars, I would say Vette.

    I have nothing against your age. Every single person above that age, had to be 17 at one time. Heck being 17 years old was some of the most fun times of my life.

    I just don't think 17 years old mixes well with high performance, rear wheel drive, torque monsters like these cars.

    But if you have the discipline to not let your raging pubescent adrenaline get you into trouble on the road then that is great.

    I suppose you were on the phone again when you typed the message above right? lol

    Yeah that last post was on my phone. But hey I no what you mean by a 17 y/o having a car like the gto, and you would think i would get in trouble with it, but i never have got a ticket yet so i guess I am doing pretty good. But sometimes when the ricers have to be taught I do race them. But all in all I think I am a good driver and I also know my limit. But yet I'm also more mature then what a average 17 y/o is.

    Id say get the corvette. Just dont turn out to be one of those guys who live with their parents when there 25 so they can drive a nice car. You can still invest your money wisely and drive a nice car. I also make 14 an hour but have a brand new house and am looking for another WS6.

    My Best Friend has a 06 GTO its awsome but honestly a vette is a vette. Your biggest problem is going to be not what car to keep or which to buy but how fast you want to be going when you get caught. Eventually everyone who street races sooner or later gets caught, even myself. Insurance is going to be a killer either way. A Corvette will deprecate faster with everyday miles on it faster than a GTO will. I would take a GTO for an everyday driver/street racer, or a corvette if I wanted just show off and race constantly. Chosing any car depends on what you want to drive and what you want to do with it. IMO Most people who reply to this will simply choose a Vette becasue it is a VETTE. The best thing that anyone on here could tell you to do is to drive one and see what you think, then take a week or a month and really think about it before you decide on anything. I thought about trading in my TA on a C5 but then realized the potential to get myself in trouble...
