I had a red 1998 convertible with an
automatic (got it so early, couldn't
chose transmission) and just got a
Commemorative Edition Z06. The
performance difference is really
spectacular. I wish they would lose
that horrible interior rubbery black
plastic stuff that won't stay or even
get clean but that's my only
complaint. Nothing like it for the
price. Note to those with carbon fiber
hoods: To close, apply pressure above
the latch on each side until it
clicks. It's too light to drop and
have it latch.
My review title is a little misleading. For the most part, I do respect the speed limits (sort of). I bought my Z06 new and absolutely love it. It's a pain to keep clean since it's black, but I wouldn't have any other color. The car is really fast and if I keep it in 6th on the freeway I can maintain 28 MPG. I knew when I bought my Vette that there wasn't much leather on the interior. So those of you out there shouldn't complain after the fact. this is an amazing car. Did I mention that it's fast?
I RUN THE CAR ON THE STREET AND RACE IN
CORVETTE CLUB SOLO EVENTS ON WEEKENDS.
THE CAR HAS REQUIRED NO MAINTENANCE
OTHER THAN SCHEDULED SINCE PURCHASED.
PERFORMANCE EQUIVALENT OF ANY
STREETABLE CAR, AND DRIVING COMFORT AND
RIDE QUALITY SUPERIOR TO ANY
