That's the boring way to reaching things. Earn it yourself and it'll be THAT much sweeter. Plenty of guys on here are doing it that way, wait till they light into the tires for the first time. They'll be 16 yrs old all over again.

hooooraaaaah

Serving 22 years for my country, visiting 66 countries in the process...nothing to me means more than a Corvette. The other Euro types have their due place, and respect, but nothing conjours up more thought provoking visions of speed, girls, apple pie and mom, than a Covette! Like Kev, I've paid my dues...and my military retirement, for the moment, pays for the monthly privilege of owning a 2006 Victory Red Covertible. My reward to myself. And yes, having 3 Corvettes certainly keeps me entertained! Like I tell most people...you can keep your money in a bank for someone else to use, earning maybe 2 or 3% a year...as for me, I drive my bank accounts and earn 5 to 12% per year at the same time!!



THANKS FOR SERVING BROTHER...AND I COULDN'T AGREE MORE...AS FOR ME I PLAN ON DRIVING MY KIDS INHERITANCE..HELL THEY MAKE MORE MONEY THAN ME ANYHOW.

Those near my age (50) that are now experiencing their first vette (or as my daughter calls it, "Mid Life Crisis") know how I feel. As for those much younger that have this awsome machine in their hands, How cool is that. As I said before I got my Kids their hot rods (G-35 Coupe and Nissan 350Z) before I got my wife and I ours. (We saved the best for last huh??) God bless all of you and the very best in 2008 to you as well.

Higher redline - if LS7 can spin to 7K why can't the smaller LS9?
Durability. The LS7 isn't supercharged.

Non-runflat Pilot Sport Cup tires - this alone would drop seconds off the 'ring time
True, and leave owners stranded. It's a road car first and a race car second.

No, they picked the low-hanging fruit long ago and now grabbed all of the medium-hanging fruit.

IMHO the ZR1's only possible weakness is its extra weight and forward bias. If anything holds back interest in this car that would be it.
Considering that the competition is worse off, I doubt they'll have any problems.

Quote:
Extra content would add cost but if the car is right people will pay for it.
People will only pay so much for a name which sells for as little as ~$45,000 from a manufacturer which sells vehicles for as little as ~$12,000.

Now if they sell all 2000 per year without big discounts then none of this matters and I'm full of it.

Oh Hell No!!!LOL

I just got rid of the 2 weeds I have now..More Kids???? You should seek pschiatric assistance for the mere suggestion.. They're too damn expensive or aka Corvette Blockers. I/We have this small window of opportunity between getting them gone and having them return with "grand-children???" where my wife and I can grab up a few things for ourselves
So far one C5 with hopefully a C7 in the near future...After that My Lap is once more open for the bouncing babies...LOL

It's all in the stirring of the soup!

For those of us old foagies that have always wanted a Corvette but never could afford that in addition to raisng kids, mortgages and 50+ hour work weeks for chicken scratch and 20+ Years in the US Navy, to finally be able to have one for me is a true blessing.

I always wish i had the zr-1 package for my C4, but that is an incredible motor. Correct me if i'm wrong, but i think has the same engine mount setup as the C4.


So, who wants to give a member of the armed forces a really awsome new years/christmas gift?
You'd be better off just buying a C4 ZR-1. And yes it is an incredible motor.
Don't forget we're talking about a 5.7L motor, not a 6.2 or a 7.0. With headers and porting the plenum, you're looking at low 12's at 118-120mph.
