    When looking at C5's go Z06 all the way. These cars were ahead of their time back then, and still give fits to newer base model C6's and Viper drivers at your local track day. Just simply put a phenominal car for what they are. My opinion here, but I also feel this body style is the better looking of the C5's as well (even though can be had in a base model) I might be a little bias though

    Hard to find a really nice one that's cared for but it's worth the wait. I sort of stumbled onto this one with 28k miles and really wasn't even looking for one.

    I wish I could get a z06. Due to an injury when i was in Afghanistan my knee is messed up to the point I cant drive a car with a clutch, they're just way to firm for knee. Unless the z06 has a clutch that feels like a jeeps thats out of the question.

    Did you ever get your Vette? Once you drive it, you'll be bitten.
