This is unbelievable, all week I have been thinking about Supercharging my 2006 C6 Vert manual tranny if I can't afford a Z06.

Out of the blue I check Auto-trader today, I type in 2006-2007 Corvette, manual tranny, yellow, $55000-$70000 hoping to find a used Z06, but not expecting anything.

BOOM.....

A local dealer within 30 miles has a BRAND NEW Velocity Yellow Z06, Chrome rims, and 2 tone Black and Gray seats with a MSRP of $72745

They are selling it for $66083.

I call up at 6:30 and tell them, if you give me $40,000 for my Velocity Yellow 2005 C6 Vert A4/3.15, only options are the Yellow, 3.15 rear & polished rims and sell me the car for $65083 with my $1000 GM card discount you have a deal.

Oh yea, I also need less than 6.49% financing for 60 months.

Well, they did everything and got me 6.1% for 60 months.

Payments are in the $900/month range with the $17,000 equity I had in my 2005.

I called my 69 year old father who I let keep the 2005 at his house and told him, you are the proud owner of a 2006 C6 Vert 3lt White/Black top
Actually I made sure he wanted it first and he said GO FOR IT!!!

I drove it home, it only had 5 miles on it, most of them from the dealer's trip to gas it up for me.
I was very cautious, but I noticed the power and I love the way it shifts. It feels less notchy than my 2006 C6 Vert, but maybe I am imagining it.

I now am in true heaven, a VY Z06 and a C6 Vert M6 with Borla Stingers

The Z06 is staying STOCK, maybe I'll pull the exhaust fuse, but that is it.

Congatulations.
The other day I was taking a walk at daybreak, and, looking westward, had the opinion that the sky and the clowds showed a big, content grin.
Must have been yours!

So yell03, How is the C6 Z06 compared to the Viper GTS? I see you didn't get on the Z06 yet, so i would like to know how the ride, control and the feel between the two cars, which one feels more race car for the street? Congrats on the Z06 :cheers:. Can't wait until i have one parked next to my C5 Z :devil:.
