Hello everyone

I'm looking to buy my first Zo6. Finally got a decent job and in looking to get into payments. Miss driving stick shift everyday
I'm still deciding between an Evo 9 or a Zo6. I'm leaning towards the Zo6 since my cousin has one and I love sitting in it. It pulls yards and sounds mean as hell. Want a daily driver and weekend track car. Open to options and critics. So shoot away! Pros and cons people, pros and cons.

Welcome to the forum, Alejandro!
sounds like the Z06 is the perfect blend of daily driver and weekend track car that you're looking for. Best wishes with your search for the one right for you.

Looks like you have narrowed your search down to a C5 Z06 based on your posts. Best of luck finding one that fits your budget and your preferences. Check out the stickies in the C5 General and C5 Tech sections for some valuable information on what to look for in a C5.

And welcome to the forum.

Well a Z06 will get you into some payments quickly if that's what you really want! I did the math on the C7 I just bought and remembered it was close to my first mortgage payment back in the day! lol

I hope you enjoy and if your close to West Palm sometime hit me up. I would love to see what you get!

Woody.

Sorry for the reply guys I was out of state and just got back. My search still continues. I almost got a C6 from the dealer but 1. it was a convertible (which I am not a fan of) and 2. it was an Ls2 not an Ls3. I really want a C5 Z06 but I don't want to rush it because I want to see all my options.

Good morning guys, found this baby and I have been talking to the guy. Strongly considering buying this beauty. I test drove the car and we agreed on a price lower than the one on the post. Any suggestions or recommendations on what are the pros and cons? I have heard about dropping and valve and a buddy told me his 6th gear gave him issues after 60k miles. I'm mostly looking for a z06 but this car is in excellent shape.
