Car looks awesome, especially in red.
Why is it driving on Z06 wheels? They do look good.

We spotted another one today in Cincinnati. Honestly, I think the driver was a little confused... He was heading the opposite way from our shop.

I find the lines of the C7 gorgeous...the best looking Vette ever IMO...a close second would be the 80-82's.

Agreed.
If I was currently in the market, I would be looking for a c6 Z06/ZR-1/GS before I would look at a c7. I have to admit I do like the front fascia a little better, it has more aggressive styling, but anything after the front turn signals I give it to the c6.

I love the Arctic White!

Like any car it will boil down to more HP and new front end and large wing worth it to you to sell your Z06 and lose thousands and pay 125k for an ZR1 to get 100 more HP, new front end and large wing or wait for the replica kits and do a conversion. There are enough people lining up to buy one just because they can and money and cost is irrelevant to them. Itís not a big enough change in looks for me to want to get one if I wasnít frugal in how I spend money.

Arctic White is beautiful!

Looks are subjective, to me a C6 ZR-1 doesn't even look as good as a base Stingray minus spoiler. And that's is just the outside, don't open the door and look inside the C6's cabin! (yes I loved my C6 too)

...If I didn't know any better, this would be right by the old Flint Sports Authority, either across the street or a couple of doors next to it. I can't believe I know this stalker-like information

My thoughts exactly!


Sure, the driver parked it way out in the boonies, but since it was way out there, what was the need to take up two stalls?

I get it... it's a beautiful Vette and the driver is trying to protect it, but imo this is asking for more trouble than it's preventing.
