2004 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (5.7L 8cyl 4A)
Well, this is my third corvette, first a C3 - 1980, next a C4 - 1992 and now this C5. It is incredible, the improvement over the C4 is staggering. The car is a monster and handles like a dream. I wanted a convertible, but I thought I wanted a C6 because of the higher HP. However, after driving both, I decided on the C5 (2004) because I thought the interior was much nicer and roomier. I really felt the C6 interior was "cheapened" compared to the C5. Some have complained about "noise" from the run- flats, but I don't experience that problem. All in all, dollar for dollar, this is an awesome car!
6-speed, windows automatically opening upon putting top down, automatic or "memory" seat and steering wheel settings upon entering and exiting vehical. Fast, handling, and did I say fast?
Louder stock exhaust, has been my comment since the C4's. Z06 has much better sounding exhaust.
