2006 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (6.0L 8cyl 6M)
I've finally been able to buy my first Vette! Now I'm hooked, and I know that there will always be one (or more) parked in my garage. The power, handling, versatility, comfort, styling, and stereo are simply an amazing combination. I'm still not used to the admiring stares from other drivers, and people saying "nice ride" in parking lots , etc. I'm 6'-5", and am happy to report that I fit very well in the coupe & convertible. Alas, the Z06 "real" hard top has frame struts that prevented me from fitting into my true desire. Oh well, I probably would've got mare tickets with that baby...
The six speed auto (solid as a rock) & paddle shift, and the stereo (no aftermarket needed).
Put alternate auto shift on the console too. Paddle shift is difficult in tight corners, and intersections... Add iPod interface.
