Ever since I was a kid, I always wanted a Corvette. Now that I own one, I can't say that I'm disappointed. It accelerates like a rocket, and rattles and creaks like one too. However, that's aCoorvette. It is what it is, and you love it for that. It looks great, handles great too. Going to Carlisle for the Corvette show with my son was a blast. Seeing the smile on his face when I tossed him the keys so he could drive home was priceless. My Dad never did that for me.
It's amazing style lines, acceleration, and handling, plus the sound of a V8 engine when you open it up.
I've seen the new ones(2005), and sat in it ,although I didn't drive it. My car rattles, and creaks whenever I hit a large pothole or bump in the road, which is part of normal driving in NJ. Make it quiet, and a little less kidney shaking in average day to day driving.The new ones do look great.
