2001 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)
I purchased this car new. Nothing comes close performance-wise for the price. However, for the price, the build quality and attention to detail are poor. I had a torn weatherstip on the driver's side in the first year, broken rain gutter the second year, three dead batteries and one alternator replacement in the third year, and recently transmission grinding while shifting into 3rd and 5th. Now I know why GM stock is junk.
Awesome acceleration and handling.
Better interior quality. Don't use a cheapo stereo from a Cavalier and call it Bose. Learn from the imports when it comes to quality build and fit/finish.
