Third Vette... and counting...

Vehicle2000 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible
ReviewI've owned three Corvettes, this 2000 Triple-Black Roadster being my latest, and my first C5. My previous Corvette was an LT4-powered 1996 Collector Edition convertible. First, moving from a C4 to a C5: The C5 is a different machine, with vastly different handling characteristics. I was warned by a good friend to take two or three weeks before trying anything "silly". I'm glad I listened to him. As far as horsepower is concerned, I know my LT4 '96 was rated at 330 and the 2000 is rated at 345 but I know in my heart and soul that my '96 (both 6- speeds) could take the C5 in a straight shootout.. not by much maybe, but there's my secret belief.
Best FeaturesHORSEPOWER; head-turning looks (even with thousands on the road), vastly improved convertible top design compared to C4
Worst Featuresnew materials for the interior; better attention to ergonomics inside the cabin; more horsepower. :-)
