Interesting thing is that I never
thought I'd own a Corvette, not on my
radar. However, when looking to
replace a daily driver it turned out to
have major advantage, I fit. At 6'3"
it is surprising how many cars I can't
either get into or sit in comfortably,
notably the XK8. The C5 at least in
it's later years is a bullet proof
touring dream. Loads of room, great
mileage on the highway with the 6 sp
and my wife noted how comfortable it
was on it trip home, 1350 miles to get
back to CA where none of the dealers
would go below MSRP at the time.
Performance is amazing, leading to
several driving classes. Heads up
display once you get a day with it is
truly much safer than looking down to
dash area. Stability Control or Active
Handling is a must in a new car if you
want active safety.
As noted by others, 2nd cup holder in
the C6 means GM is listening. 400 HP
will be nice in the future, too.
