2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (6.0L 8cyl 6M)
The performance and ride quality of this car is impressive. More interior refinement would be nice. With the top down this car is hard to beat. Docile and easy to relax in, but ready to pounce with a push of the pedal. The Z51 option does not make the ride too harsh, but this is a sports car, not a limo. Only complaint is break squeal, a common problem with the Z51 cross drilled rotors. Can't be beat for the money - and resale will be high.
Keyless ignition - short throw six speed - manual top operation is a breeze.
Interior refinment - not a BMW or Audi quality wise - rain sensing wipers - trunk must be slammed shut.
