Vote and respond.
Curious if anyone here would trade their Corvette in for a different one, different color, different year, different model, different options.
If yes, why?

If I could even swap for a GS in equally good condition. Would love to have a widebody just didnít fit the budget. That being said, I love mine and may make it a widebody one day. Itís all up in the air for now, bought the nicest one my budget allowed. Iím not doing any big mods to it until Iíve got a nice amount of cash in my pocket then Iíll decide to trade or not.

While I am very happy with the one I have...I'm always looking. If I ran across the right one, I'd definitely trade.

I have the exact car I was looking for and have done several mods that have made it perfect for me. I have also installed an ATI balancer and a new A6 shifter cable so no, I don't think I would change. Money was not a factor when I bought it. I like the C6 best and did not settle when I bought this one. Perfect for me and since mid engine cars cost a fortune to work on (basically taking home mechanics out of the equation), I doubt that any future Corvettes will catch my eye.

When I wear this '08 out, I would trade it for a 2013 GS or maybe a Z06 But with only 68,000 on her, she's got a long way to go.

I would not trade it. I've owned 7 Corvettes in my life, and my 2006 is the only one I bought brand new. I'm the only one who ever drove it, and I want to keep it that way. My C6 is like an old friend, been through a lot together, including 150 passes at the 1/4 mile dragstrip, and she never let me down.

Already did.

Traded my 05 Precision Red coupe for an 05 Machine Silver Coupe. Red coupe had manual tranny, Silver coupe was an automatic tranny. Traded so my wife could drive the automatic. She couldn't drive a manual.

Yes, when the time is right. The red car is aging very gracefully, but aging nonetheless. A C7 Grand Sport is in our future, we think. Perhaps another red one.

We trudge on.

Spent quite some time hunting for a gray or silver Grand Sport convertible with a manual transmission and a two tone interior. The one I found happened to be a Callaway. Exactly what I wanted or would have custom ordered only better. Added carbon fiber splitter and spoiler and a complete killer stereo system replacement complete with front and rear camera. So to answer the question.......NO

No, I ordered the exact one I wanted (color & options), since then I have put a lot of time into customizing it to make it uniquely mine. If anything at this point, I would just add another to stable (which there is a very good chance of happening next year).

I traded in my '09 Z06 for a '14 Z51 Stingray Vert.

Since then, I added one more ('09 coupe) to the stable; now the oldest fun ride is outside facing her first winter in the "pasture".

I can't find another owner for her for another 1500 miles. That would be insulting to her.

I like my 2010 GS LT3 very much. It turns heads on the road and gets many good comments. So I will probably not trade it in, plus it has everything I want and I enjoy driving it.

I love my #230/500 Indy version black, Z51 optioned vette. Have no desire to change at this point. Only 56K on the clock, so still plenty of life, and not I have not seen another Indy version in this part of the country. My car is my daily driver when it is cold, however I did ride my FJR 1300 this morning in 26 degree weather. Anything to keep a few miles and rock chips off my car.

ďWould you trade in your Corvette for another?Ē

Depends on what they give me for my car.
