I love the c5.... But

First of all. I do love the c5 and had 2 for a total of 10 years. Modded both with my own hands. I street race once in a while. And like to keep the car in show condition.
After test driving this 06 6 speed manual. I was in awe. 40,000 miles. I had to have it. I can't go back. This car has custom tunes, kooks headers high flow cats and corsa cat back, vararam intake, electric water pump. Small cam. This car kicks ***. Had to sell my c5. I dropped the c6 2 inches to start. Will do wide body rear fenders, then black spyder wheels 19x12 rears. I'll be doing a 1 mile event soon, will make some vids of it. Like my little Cali emblem haha

Lol. My c5 is in good hands. New owner raised it up a little. But that's understandable. I was on the extreme low stance. Almost that low with this car, just need to drop the front a little more.
Wish I could keep them both.
