Default Question: What do you see in your C6?

I don't know when in my ownership of my 08 C6, but I was sitting in it one day when I was struck by something I never noticed before. Heretofore I always thought the C6 was a very rounded aerodynamic sports car uniquely different than any other generation. However, while sitting in it, I saw that the front fenders were very reminiscent of the C3s. Just like the C3s, my car's front fenders arch up and have a definite sharp crease. This put an entirely different look to the car in my mind. What does your C6 remind you of?

I noticed this when I first sat in a C6 at Birthday Bash in 2004.

I see a big hole that has been eating a lot of my money.

It is a joy to drive. I just am not getting the return which I expected even at 30MPG.

^ Either, All previous Corvettes, late model front engine Ferraris , or a curvaceous woman. Depends on whether I'm contemplating before during or after Happy Hour ..

Yep, I see the resemblance of the C3 too. It's what drew me to the C6.

A lifestyle that comes with owning a Corvette. The shows, the clubs, the events.

When I sit in my new 2013 C6 Z06, I see how fortunate I am to do so. Hard work and frugal spending allowed for this.....and when I sit in it, I see that all my hard work has paid off.

Even though it is "just a car," it is a dream come true that finally, after so many years, I was capable of buying a brand new car (A nice one too!).

I see how much money I put into it. Just think how many times I am going to have to wash and wax it to keep it clean, just so it can sit it the garage and get dusty again.

I agree. The C6 fender/hood is reminiscent of the C2 style.

Just like the C5 fender/hood is reminiscent of the C1 style.

I see a money pit making my wallet small.

I see so many generations.....
Right behind the doors -C2
The rear hatch - C2
Front fenders - C3
The tail lights - first generation C4
Tail pipes - C5 (sort of)
Excitement....it all started with the C1 ...and ran for 60 years !!!!!

THE C6 will be heralded by many to be the best CORVETTE ever.

If you see the C6 as a money pit....you haven't owned enough boats!

Agree. The styling of the C4 and C5 was barely on my radar. I consider them to be the "lost years".

The C6 (especially the wide-body) re-ignited the childhood excitement I had for the C3. I love seeing those big fenders while sitting in the cockpit.
