It's easy to forget that these cars can get expensive. You get in a Z or a GS with 3LT or 4LT options packages, you are getting up there 70k+ in price. That's a lot of scratch for the working man with a family. Don't know that I'd ever buy one brand new. In a couple years I'm thinking my 2000 gets retired for a 2010-ish Grand Sport (LOVE the wide body) or something along those lines. Let someone else pay for the depreciation first!

And you do it all without a warranty. More likely, most ZR1 owners don't care as they'll still kick your *** around a race track.

If his upgrades include suspension as well as power train...ZR1 guys still gonna cry, unless they already know the C5 is still a racecar in sheeps clothing.

The C5 is still a killer platform.

That's the conversation we were having not long ago, and, I believe the Blitzkrieg has the whole suspension/powertrain upgrades too, and from what I've read, he'd kill a ZR1.

There are about two C5s I've seen that ill take over a zr1, one being GBVETTE. I love the C5 platform as much as anyone but to seriously compare one to a ZR1 is madness.

I agree that the 427 vert looks fantastic, but no way in heck will I ever pay that kind of money for a car.

Bad *** car but the color just doesn't do much for me. I liked the Nassau blue early C5's but mainly because they are rare...

Perhaps so, consider my opinion registered. I probably wouldn't have even done that were it not for the douche bag comment by the guy talking about Blitz's "still a 12 yr old car"

Sorry bout that. It may not have been meant douchy but it came across douchy. I agree though, BFD. That being the case, I don't get the point of the comment. Anyway, enough said. :
