Default I Traded This for This

Wow, what a difference between the C5 and the C6. Much quieter on the road is a big one for me. Getting used to the keyless thing is a weird one. All in all the new C6 is much better, I just wished I could have kept the C5 in a garage somewhere. Any ways here is before and after.

2 beautiful cars, good luck. If money was no object I would have stuck that ZO6 in a garage as well.

You could have kept it in MY garage!

Looks like you took good care of the C5 and I can see why you might have kept it had you the storage space. I plan on keeping my C6 when I purchase a C7 in a few years.

Congratulations! They're both nice cars but I think you'll be pleased you made the jump to the C6. Enjoy!

Both cars look good! Your neighbors will probably think something looks different about your car, but won't realize it is actually a different one.

Both nice rides. The fixed roof coupe is the only C5 body style I like. Visually makes the car look smaller.

Both beautiful cars. Would have been great to keep both but one is better than none. Congrats on the new Vette.

Good choice. Know when you're going to really realize it? When you remove that top you'll see what you've been missing. Enjoy.

When I traded my torch red C5 for my JSB C6 all my neighbors thought I had the car painted.

When I first saw the c5 you posted I was like how could he sell that beautiful car?

Then I scrolled down a bit and became clear...

Smart choicei favorite color favorite model....

What options etc did you get on the cool new c6?
