Default The Vert looks alot better than the coupe...

...although I still have issues with the "straight" angles in the rear, taillights, and trumpet shaped exhaust.

Of course it does, it is a Vert. Coupe's are for Nancy boyz and women that don't like to get their hair messed up.

No it does not. Like very other car out here the coupe looks a lot better than the convertible. As a matter of fact the convertible almost manage to make the C7 look ordinary.

Haven't bought a coupe since buying my 1984 and replaced it with the 86 official pace car yellow convert with every option offered that year as soon as they were available.

Coupes are for the track and converts are for the street.

20 out of the 25 vettes I have owned have been converts and the last coupe I bought was a 1984 and only because it came out during the 10 dark years with no corvette convert being offered.

The vert will most likely be the first C7 that I buy.

I'm neither a woman or a gay man. The next modern Vette I buy will be another vert.

I have owned both coupes and convertibles. I always get nervous when I travel over night that some fool will get into my car by slicing the roof. I would rather have a convertible but I am buying the coupe. I plan on driving coast to coast and I will rest much better,,

Congratulations. You win stupidest post of the week on CF.

FYI, I'm not a woman or a gay man and I have a 600hp Mercedes AMG SL55 convertible that I'll put up against what you drive any day of the week.

I've learned that on this forum you've never heard it all with some of the moronic responses you see on a daily basis.
