2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (6.0L 8cyl 6M)
I am over the hill but just had to have this car. It's a 6 speed and I can lope along fat and happy, but the power is there when you want it. Just downshift and you are dust. Too old to peel rubber, but I manage to move in traffic and still get a respectable 20 MPG in the city.
6 speed power. Cornering. Appearance, looking fast just parked. Economy compared to other sport cars.
They made the improvements in to 2005 like automatic top, homelink and On- Star.
