An American Classic Grows Up!

2006 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


I did not set out to buy a Corvette. I was going to purchase a SL or CLK series Benz or a 6-series BMW (all available as convertibles). I visited the dealerships, I test drove the cars, they all had power and refinement and, yet, bored me stiff! I happened to pull into a Chevy dealer (for the first time in 20 years) ... the new C6 Vettes both resembled their heritage and yet looked different. I test drove one. I fell in love! This car LOVES the road! The seating position is perfect, the responsiveness of the engine is amazing, and you feel like you couldn't come unglued from the asphalt if you tried. This car inspires confidence. I bought a fully-loaded ragtop the same day.

Best Features

Magnetic selective ride - from restrained "touring" for town to Speed Racer at the turn of a knob. The touchscreen navigation/sound system is a techno marvel (7-speaker Bose system is great). The power top is a cinch. Keyless entry/ignition. Automatic climate control. My Vette has ALL the best toys!
