Default Sold the C7 for a ZL1

I sold the C7 a while back and picked up a Lexus RC 350. The car ended up being a little dull (but very nice) so I picked up a new 2019 Camaro Zl1. The car is an absolute monster. I miss the C7 but I drove it for five years and over 70,000 miles. The Zl1 will be my daily driver as well. I will still hang around as I enjoy Corvettes and these are interesting times for sure.

How do I get these pictures to post correctly? They work on another forum

Cool and congrats but don't get why sharing photos of your Camaro on a C7 Forum.

Because I have been a member here for many years and drove a C7 for 70,000 miles. Move along if you feel your time has been wasted. My apologies. I like seeing what other C7 owners end up with when they move on from their C7s.

When I purchased a couple months ago, I was torn between the Vette and an identical Riverside Blue ZL1 (so I could bring the family along). Awesome car and color!

If it makes you happy, that is all that counts, but would never downgrade to a Camaro from a Vette myself. And this is with me owning a 2010 Camaro.

GM has decided to drop the evolution of the Camaro. Again. Last chance for romance. Again.

Grats on a really nice car. I'm sure there will be another vette in your future down the road. I don't understand why some people feel the need to rain on someone elses parade.

Congratulations! I bought a c6 Z06 from Roger Dean. Good people. I am envious of the Recaro Seats. Dunno why Corvette seats go to cheapest no-name bidder. too many gripe threads for corvette to claim their in-house is the best seat solution.

Not raining on anyone's parade, I complemented OP on his car and congratulated him. So Ok, to be politically correct, post photos up of your BMWs, Jags, Lexus, come one come all.

They are just different cars. The Zl1 is faster than my C7 was and I keep my cars stock. I consider it more of a lateral purchase as opposed to a downgrade, but it doesn't matter. I didn't buy it to please anybody else but me .

Then you should be in the C8 forum, no?

6-Speed manual for me. I hear awesome things about the 10-speed automatic though. I actually miss having a 7th gear though since I became so used to it in the C7.

Exactly. All of us will have an opinion but you only gotta do you.
