Default C6 Convertibles Check In Here

What is the interest in starting a sticky thread for C6 convertibles?

I'm in!

Only pics I have are of my 2007 that I sold a while ago. Need to take some of my "new" 2006 when I get a chance. Sam, you might recognize the 2006.

I personally don't really see a need. Despite any coupe VS vert threads (which are usually for fun anyway) that are out there, a Corvette is a Corvette and most vette lovers will likely be interested in all corvette chat....whether it be about a vert or a coupe......

Sounds like a reasonable idea. If they have one for Firebirds/Camaros on LS1Tech https://ls1tech.com/forums/convertible-vehicles-84/ for cars that haven't been made in 16 years, there certainly should be an interest here. I have frequented that convertible section for many years and would do the same here if available. There are WAY more 'vert owners here as well. It's thinning out bad for them plus they didn't even produce that many to start with.

Since verts made up only 27% of the 215,375 C6s built, I'd say it's not very likely to happen.

Don't see a need either. And I have a convertible.

In the end there isn't a real big difference between the coupe and the Vette besides the roof and I owned/own both

The coupe is a Vette. Did you mean "vert" instead of "Vette?"

Proof reading before posting is nice.

Aside from the car being a drop-top, it has all the same equipment as other c6's. If you have a question about your car, even about your top, it is always answered on this forum.
Are you going to get that from a 'vert forum?

Why? For the most part coupe and verts are same, but there are some VERY specific issues that apply ONLY to Verts. Ex- roof issues, roof mechanics, stereo upgrades (I'm actually facing this issue right now), among other Topics... It's not a bad idea where all the Vert owners gather to share something that's "Vert" Specific.

I find that a lot of "ACCURATE" Corvette knowledge comes from all experienced corvette owners, coupe and vert alike. Lots of coupe owners know a lot about verts, and vice-versa. I don't have a problem with a vert only forum, but if I have a problem i'm gonna try and tap all the knowledgeable corvette owners for assistance.....whether they be a coupe or vert owner.......
