Like many here, I've owned other Corvettes

Thus I did consider other cars Before I bought my C5 Z06

I looked at Porsches, Vipers, and one car that kind of caught my attention was A Supercharged Acura NSX

I like the body lines and the car Handles well

Heres a clip

Fast forward to about 1:00m

Question: What Other Car Did Y'all Consider before you bought your Corvette ??






NSX/ Stick'n it to a Viper
& The clock don't lie fellas


Alittle Rice Dicing with a LamBo

Daihatsu Midget MP4
Kia Soul
Izh 2126

Ok, just kidding. We considered the late model GTO (for the extra seats) as well as the G8 GT, but the G8 was still new at the time and just over budget. All in all, the C5 with a side car for the little one worked out just fine.

I had considered selling my SC'ed 05 Corvette and purchasing a 2000 Ferrari Modena. After driving the Ferrari, I was quickly brought back to Corvette land. The Ferrari actually wasn't everything I imagined it would be and for the price difference, it needed to be.

I can't imagine owning or enjoying anything else as much as I have my Corvette.;)

We do have a 68 GT500E (aka Eleanor) in our stable but it has yet to see the road.:lookinup: I think I'll enjoy driving that one quite a bit, but I still love my Vette's more.:thumbsup:

I considered Audi r8
But just did not have the lines of a vette
We have other sports cars but they just don't measure up
Corvette fan for life
Can't wait to see the real C7

The Audi R8 is a beautiful car:

It uses a 5.2 litre engine based on the unit in the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4
The motor develops 518hp/391ft lbs torque

Corvette, Viper, Lamborghini

after that they are all just cars to me

BLK 1 :buhbye:
I considered a 2005 Murciélago

I don't like the all wheel drive on the Lambos and have you checked the price on replacement Parts ? Lol

Also Lambo Service makes GM look like they are running a 5 starr* Dating service

Then you can't drive it anywhere
because the car draws too much attention and Jelousey:devil:


I know because I was invited to join The Lamborghini Of Los Angeles Car club

You should hear some of the stories they tell

Still a very nice car and much better engineering than Ferrari has to offer

I'm half way there for a Murcielago and the Viper is also paid off so that will be used as a trade in also. The parts are crazy but I have a very special contact so everything will be half off. Just think, a clutch will be only 7K.....:thud:

BLK 1 :buhbye:

BTW: that is the EDO rear wing I will put on the car :thumbsup:

I owned a srt-10 viper before my z06 and a 750Li (which i had alota problems with) so that drove me away from the e92 m3 which i was considering

I was debating a porsche but IMO it just doesnt compare to a vette ( I have a few porscehs in my family and friends with them as well)

I like the AMG benzes but those are more family oriented

the z06 just felt right ! :thumbsup:

Never considered buying anything but a vette. The vette was my childhood dream. I was in like with Porsches, Ferraris, Lambos but in love with the vettes.

I was saving my pennies for a 911 C2S, but then I met someone with a C6, and the rest is history.

The vette was spot on for what I wanted, and it was half the price.

If I could not have a Corvette I would be driving the
fastest damn Chevy pick up you have ever seen.
