    My first sports car was a BMX Z3, fun to drive, but it had a manu-matic shift, pretty much just and automatic (was ignorant of sports cars and I got a good deal). I had a hard time selling it because nobody wanted a sports car with an automatic, finally sold it to a womn. Learned my lesson.

    Used to be. Sold my last p car in 2012 and haven't looked back. Likewise, haven't felt the need to cruise rennlist or pelican. Absolutely do NOT miss random $5k repair bills for a car that saw less than 1000 miles a year. Stuff that pretty much does not happen on most cars.

    Of the Vettes I've owned, not once did I ever have those kinds of random, unexplained repairs.

    I'll never own another modern german car (modern being post approx 1995-ish) without a warranty. Still open to another 70s/80s 911 or 5 series, though. 99% analogue and parts are ubiquitous.

    So have you complained about the transmission being in the back for 23 years?

    I think they would have a winner in design if they put circle tail lights back on. My favorite thing about Vettes are those big bootys. 20180928_111201.jpg

    Completely agree. I wish I had bought a zo6, but my coupe above was to cheap not to buy. It definitely afforded me some upgrade options. It is still a beater comparatively to most Vettes out there, but for under 10k there is no other comparison out there.

    By your way of thinking, Chevy could start making a minvan, put the Corvette badge on it and that would be just fine.

    The Ford GT is clearly a higher level performance car, and damned pretty to boot, but at the price bracket the Corvette comes in at, it's amazing!
