    And to the OP nice ride. I am sure you will have a blast driving her. And that is awesome that you had the discipline to keep working towards it.
    Yea I really dont spend much money lol, I used some of it to buy my t/a, I believe I will stop at actually buying the 9inch with 3.75's and a drive shaft with a lifetime warranty on it, total for that is 3100 free shipping. And long tubes with high flow cats and some kind of muff with some long tubes. Then I will stop their for a while. atleast till the next deployment , but def damn theat corvette is plane sick tho, im in love haha I you for having the patience for that haha.

    Are you going to have to put a front plate on the Vette? If so, please don't drill into the bumper... IDK how you do them up there for Vettes. Since we don't need front plates.

    A stock Z06 will embarass the hell out of a Shelby, even a regular Vette would spank it! Ford has yet to learn how to put the power to the ground. Not one magazine, even those dumbass Mustang magazines could muster a 1/4 mile time better than mid to upper 12's.
    Stock Z06 time in the 1/4 is mid to low 11's with the proper driver. One of the best times ever recorded for a STOCK 2008 Z06 was 10.62. That was with drag slicks.

    Insurance is not bad. Pefect record cavalier is liabily ta is 250 ded. and vette is 1000 ded. I only pay 220 a month thru iowa mutual for all three. I pay the whole 6 months thou. I was going thru progressive and they wanted 350 a month so my agent called me and told me about iowa mutual i could not beleive the savings. I was paying 190 for the two car thru progressive now i added the vette and it is 30 bucks more thru them i am happy.

    That's good, I never understood the Front Plates on cars... Unless it's a truck, since people pull trailers.

    My understanding 4 the front plate is so the polices car pick up if your speeding so the laser reflects off the plate because it is reflective.

    me too...idk about a new one though, what do you think? As far as having a warranty and all that.....like money-wise, I totally wouldnt mind getting say, a 99 coupe with like 65000 miles for what, 14 grand? 12? idk what they go for. And just taking mad good care of it, repainting any chips, having a well broken in engine that you can maintain and mod, replace worn parts with your own choice of stock/mod etc.

    But then like the OP, picking up a basically brand new 2008/09/10 off the lot DEF has its advantages too

    well used if I had the money I would probably go with a c5 Z06 they go as low as 20k-32k and only have 30k-50k miles base c5's I think range from 15-25k with 50k and below miles not positive though. Also the vette market is really soft right now so if you had the money now would probably be the time to buy one. But a new one has one advantage you know its not been abused or anything. Maybe I'll be able to afford one when the C7's come out

    That is a myth. The laser reflects off of the whole car. I dunno the reason for two plates...

    GM is offering 0% financing on all new Corvettes for 5 years. A decent down payment and you're in the car of your dreams. I have owned 5 F-Bodies, and can assure you that NOTHING compares to driving a Vette!
    The first Vette I was ever in was my own, I've never driven one, nor even been a passenger. I can recall exactly the moment when the sales rep said during the time we were waiting for my wife to show up at the dealership;
    "So, do ya wanna take her for a lil test drive?"
