    It's nice that the top comes off too. the Zs have fixed roofs. I miss my C5 Vert. My company bought mine for me, but then I own the company. :)

    Agreed, doors and hoods should be closed for car pictures, unless you are taking a pic of the interior or engine.

    On topic, I've got a love/hate relationship with the brand new Vettes, I love that the Z06 and ZR1 perform so well, but I hate the fact that their interior feels like it belongs in a Cavalier with optional leather. We are talking about a $60-$100k car here Chevy, use better quality interior materials please.

    On topic, this is my Corvette sitting back in the US. I don't particularly love it, it's underpowered and an automatic, but I've got a sentimental attachment to it. Dad owns a 58, 63, and 82 Vette as well.

    LOL. Yeah I guess that was the original topic.

    For the record, I would take a C4 ZR1 over a brand new ZR1 any day of the week. :)

    I am with you on that one! I would have loved to have had one of those, but coming up with the price of a "base" model was hard enough in 1991 much less a $32,000 option package!

    Yeah, they still hold their value extremely well too, due to how sought after they are.

    Well my base model is pretty well worthless by now which is why I drive it every day, weather permitting. No, I am not one of those people who won't drive it in the rain, but I do put the ol' gal in storage once the first snowfall hits. Another advantage of having an old Corvette... I am getting pretty good at re-doing the intake manifold seals on the L98!

    I guess its almost time to dust off the old Jeepster. Its only a 1999 with 260,000 miles on it... just barely broken in!
