Why I bought a Z06

2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


I was in the market for a new & there
was an article in a car mag that tested
4 similar cars at Willow Srpings Race in
CA, one that I am intimately familiar
with, having driven it many times. They
were: BMW M3, 350Z, Porsched 911, and
the Z06. The Z06, not surprising to me
bascily won every category,and was the
second cheapes. The M3was not my style
, the Porsche while nice, but too much
$. I drove a 350Z & my Eclipse GST with
120K miles will beat that car easily in
everything but braking. Yes it is modifed.
Found a dealer that would sell it
for $45,700, $7000 below sticker, and
POWER Chevy in South Bay arranged the
deal and all I had to do was sign the

Best Features

Excellent power steering response, corners like nothing I have driven including my 69 Z/28 that was set up for road racing. Docile in traffic, has so much torque you can just let the clutch out without adding power.

Worst Features

More horsepower? I've never had enough. One thing that I am not happy about is the lack of a spair tire and the Z06 does not use run flats..
