Default If you are buying a c7, what car are you coming from?

I'd like to know what cars people are coming from that they are willing to give up for the base c7. Trying to decide if it is worth for me to trade my car for this one or wait for a better version.

C6 Z06. But I'm not jumping ship on it just yet. I am waiting for the Z car (s), L88 or whatever they call it to come out. I like the look of the C7 but I need to see something that outperforms what I have before I would consider a C7.

C6 Z06 (LPE 630 HP). I have a deposit on one (will order a Z51) which I will most likely hand down to either my wife of son when the high performance version is out.

2005 Precision Red Corvette coupe. 1SB (3LT equivalent from 2005), Magnetic Ride Control, navigation. The only difficulty for me is giving up the Precision Red.

Welcome to the club! That's exciting news. Just be VERY careful the first time you put your right foot down. Things will be different.

Haha Yes! Very good advice. Rented a couple of ZHZs before--After a week long tour of Maui in a vette, totally changed the wife's opinion. Best anniversary ever!

I'm 'probably' going to sell one of my '13 GT500's before taking delivery of the C7, which I don't think will happen until Q4 this year, but am still considering selling a few of my track cars and may end up keeping both.
I'll probably decide in the spring.

I have a 2006 C 6 Monterrey Red DD w/ 95,000 miles, and if I like the green color I'll get a C 7 by next summer for the caravan and my 50th high school reunion in Midwest City Oklahoma. Good reason yes?

IF I do it, I'd be selling my '05 vert or pass that one on to one of my kids and just buy it outright.
