2002 Chevy Corvette Z06: Ditch The Heads Up Display
February 20, 2010
No, our Z06 isn't fixed yet. But I'm tired of talking about detonation, so I'm going to change the subject.
Anyone out there like heads up displays? I don't. Never have. Whenever I get in a car with one I immediately disable it.
I've never understood the point. How is redundancy good?
Oh, I'm telling you this because our 2002 Corvette Z06 has one of these stupid things. And every time I climb behind the wheel I turn it off.
Besides that, and the detonation problem of course, the Vette is a real blast to drive and it's much more comfortable than you'd think. It rides well, its seats are soft and in the grand GM tradition it has a kickin' air-conditioning system. It's even easy to see out of.
And it sounds great. You can hear it a block away. The other morning it set off a couple of car alarms in our office parking garage.
This is a cool car.
