I know the feeling.
When I got my first C5 I was forever hooked, and now here I am with a C6 and just as happy, if not more.

Something about them just gets to you and probably for the rest of my driving life I will always have some variation of the Corvette. It just feel right to me.

It just feel different than any other pony/muscle car out there. The Camaros and Challengers just ugh. Mustangs are cool but still just Mustangs. I don't get the same feeling.

I traded a beautiful 87 Porsche for my 2008 Indy car C6. Still love every minute of it. #230/500 Models made.

Now if only my 11 GS had Bluetooth music capabilities it would be perfect. Still canít believe my buddies 2010 Camaro can do it but a car costing twice as much canít.

It could be an 08, my car has the same wheels and the 2 colors are very similar depending how the light hits it. Mine is the Crystal Red Metallic.

Hmm, I thought they changed rims in '08.

But yes CRM was new for '08, replacing Monterey Red, which you can't tell apart unless maybe they were side by side.

When you get to the point where you intentionally forget something at the grocery store so you can turn around and go back that's OCD. Until then, you're good to go.

It's head and shoulders above the Challenger in ever way - smoother to drive, more comfortable, better handling, better braking, better ride quality, and goes better - the only thing the Challenger has over the C6 is the seat is a lot higher so it's easier to get in and out. But that's not really a plus, since it makes the Challenger feel like you're in a 1/2 ton truck compared to the C6. The challenger is lowered and I think it's still a foot taller than the C6 - or close to it.

It's also easier to work on. I just did Bilstein shocks, a Billy Boat NPP retro fit kit and replaced almost all the bulbs with LED's - interior, side markers and SUPER bright high beams. Just waiting on my Radio Flyer harnesses to get here so I can replace the tails and DRL's with LEDs.

I'm just thrilled with this thing - I'm already finding excuses to leave the house just so I can drive it!

I realize I'm preaching to the choir, so excuse me for gushing - I'm just loving the car too much
Vettes are nice but canít see comparing one to a challenger they are a boat IMO. Enjoy your new car.

He didn't. Quite the opposite.

I haven't had mine long but I don't think I'll ever be without one. I told my wife as much ... she wasn't amused ... and I wasn't joking.

AND, it only took 20 days for an idiot on a motorcycle splitting lanes at 50+ when I was doing about 10 to screw the car up. The adjuster will be here in the morning.

Man that sucks, but it can be fixed.

I've always thought GM missed the mark with the C7. Too angular. I love my 2005 and have owned it since the day it was born. Extensively modded with a Z06 drivetrain and brakes, and a 800+ whp, 6.8 liter LS2.

I've had a C4,C5, and now own two C6's. Best car ever. I even tried my friend's C7 before buying the second C6. Need I say more?

In the past, I have owned some real muscle cars and a BMW 750LI, BMW 640i, Jaguar XK Convertible...all great cars but nothing like a C6.
