This car is freedom. I bought it to use in parades as well as have the time of my life at 66. The car handles like a dream, the top is a no brainer and easy to get down. Lots of trunk room for a sports car. And does it get the comments!

I purchased my dream C5, a yellow convertible with a white top and red seats without ever driving it based purely on specifications and styling. Driving it the last 4 years & 9 months has been a blast. It is just as exciting today as it was then. I have driven many cars from all manufacturers except the expensive exotics ala Ferrari and Lamborghini and nothing compares to the Corvette. The car has been perfect except for replacing the battery & O2 sensor. I drive it hard and fast eight months out of the year. It's been a total thrill. Every time I finish a drive, I feel such exhilaration that I want to jump out like Speed Racer. I'm a woman driver that'll never. I need a C6.

Having owned a few Vette converts '58,'61,'66,'67,'71,'75,'87, '95,'98 .. I loved everyone. When I turned 65 I wanted one for keeps. The '02 Flame Red convert I now have is the best. Not one problem since I bought it. Keeps me feeling young and the gals love it.

I am a licensed Auto Dealer and bought
this car at auction two weeks ago. Saw
a row of Vettes sitting in the sun and
had to have one. I have owned over 50
cars personally and driven most
everything on the planet. No other car
has pasted a grin on my face more than
this car. It gets more smiles, stares
and "nice car" than anything else I
have driven including an M3 and 911
convertible. Pure fun.

Driving the 2002 Corvette 6 spd
Convertible is the best automotive
experience I have ever had the
priviledge to experience.Exhilirating
acceleration, tight cornering, smooth
ride and exceptional feel in a visual
package shared by only a few of the
elite sports cars in the world. Add to
that the fun of Corvette forums, clubs,
road rallies, aftermarket equipment,
clothing and plenty of helpful advice
and one purchases a complete
recreational package that no other car
can compare with. It is truly awesome.

I was lucky enough not only to
participate in the 50th Anniversary
Corvette Caravan to Bowling Green and
Nashville on June 26th. and 27th. 2003.
I also was able to participate in the
five "hot laps" at Atlanta Motor
Speedway on June 25th, 2003.
At first I was leery of pushing the car
but my Corvette was able to push
through and sustain 135 mph around the
entire track (1.54 mi) without any
shakes, shudders, shimmies or any other
anomalies that would decrease my
confidence in the car's handling the
She was very capable of going much
faster but, the driver was not.
THIS IS A GREAT CAR!!
