NO! Aside from the early that I would love to own, my 04 CE Z06 Coupe was the most visually stimulating vette I owned. Pictured here on the day on the day I traded for a 2012 GS CE.

I don’t drive it as much since I retired in May, but when I do, she still turns heads. HANDS DOWN, THE BEST CAR I’VE EVER OWNED!

Keep them coming guys. Get to see all your fine looking rides and a little history too. Cheers, Rob

You don't drive it as much since you've retired? Shouldn't it be the other way around?

C5's are great, I still have my factory order 3rd day of production '98. But don't drive one back to back with a modern performance car with all the amenities - if you do, you know you have an old car. And don't forget C5's arrived in 1997, literally a generation ago. Probably some owners here that were not born then.....

Her C7 replacement is in the garage so she's been relegated to the show circuit. And still draws more looks than our new roadster.
