    Shoot me over the last 8 digits of the VIN and I'll run it through GM VIS.

    im kinda thinkin about corvette too. Torn between the C5Z06 and a C6-Z51 (cant afford c6zo6). Any thoughts on this? Im kinda leaning toward the C6 cause it'd have a removable roof and it'd be the latest body style.
     
  7. I'd take the C5 Z06 over the C6 Z51. The C5 and C6 are really not very different, so it's pretty much choosing what you like the looks of more. I like the FRC body style, so I pick C5 Z06.

    :werd: on Z51 C6--it's been said that it's equal to the C5 Z06 on the track.

    I have heard that the C6 Z51(even the 08 with the better steering rack) lacks the feedback that the C5 Z06 has. You have to trust the car(and computers) alot more in the C6 than the C5. I havent driven either hard, but I am relying on people's word who have since I am trying to choose between them(will probably be 04 Z06 vs. 09 Z51) when I finally decide. If I was gonna buy tomorrow, I would be buying a C5 Z06 since the price of the cars has come down quite a bit.

    I wouldn't be interested in buying a C5 unless I were going to gut it and make it a track car. The interior in those is fucking DATED, not to mention supplied by Playskool.

    They are fucking CAPABLE track cars, though.
