    Thinking of getting a C5 z06

    I got my urge again for a fast car and im tired of the F-body nic nacs. I went and checked out a few 02 z06s today and i really like them. I pretty much know a ton about ls6's and ls1's but i want to know more about the car. What should i look for except the normal things like ticking or oil leaking? And im just wanting to hear some opinions about these cars and the pros and cons.

    Don't know alot about them but I will say that if I were looking for a newer vette the 03-04 Z06 would be the one I'd consider.

    Still a very sporty vette even though it's been surpassed a few times since with newer versions, it's nothing to sneeze at. I've watched them on and off, still some low mile examples out there, and they seem to keep some value as well considering the last one is already 8 years old. Very affordable at this point and still a car that is more capable than most drivers dare to push it. Good luck in your search.

    If I were looking to buy a Vette I'd go with a C5 ZO6. Something about how the car looks and, well, it's a ZO6, too
