2003 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (5.7L 8cyl 4A)
Are you kidding me? I cannot believe what a superb car the Corvette has become. My yellow, six speed, convertible does everything well. It is unbelieveably powerful, stable, comfortable, forgiving and just plan the most fun I've ever had driving a car. This is my third Corvette. I loved my '64' and my '85', but this C5 is over the top for the sheer joy of driving. Oh Nellie... What must the ZO6 be like?
The drivetrain is a crowning achievement for this car. It is very well behaved in traffic and around town, but jab the accelerator, check the tach, pull second gear and you know why you spent $50,000. It is just a blast to ride this rocket. Oh yes, and it has darn good breaks too.
I wish my convertible had the C6 interior. It is much more elegant, less muscle car looking.
