Doesn't mean that we still can't be friends [img]smile.gif[/img] I've always wanted to ask a vette owner this: I notice a lot of vette owners drive around with their parking lights on. Is there some secret vette owners club that everyone agreed to do that?

The c-5 is great for long hauls. Air Conditioner and Bose stereo....but I can't wait to get the Cobra done. The parts used to build the Cobra are alot cheaper to replace than C-5 parts HA! Autocrossing with the Cobra should be a riot!! I fell for the C-5 but the Cobra build is progessing. Mike

C-5 parking lights come on with the ignition. Sort of a daytime running light. I am in the market for another C-5 after my wife totaled ours. going to go for a ragtop this time i think. I am looking for a very specific car this time. Dark red with tan top and interior. Must also be Auotmatic.
My father has an '00 C5 w/ an automatic. Great car! I'm sure its not on par quickness wise with a FFR Cobra but I wouldn't want to race it around California Speedway. It is also a dream on a long drive. They are really sophisticated compared to the FFR Cobra. That said, I'd race just about any Corvette zero to 60.

I bought the c-5 first. '01 6 speed z51, a blast to autocross on road coarse with. New rules required mods, didn't want to make - enter FFR. Can't wait to finish it and get it on the track next year. Will keep vette, it's still a great car. IMHO.

Anyone been around the C6? it is awsome!!!! I work at Karl Chev in Ankeny Iowa and we sell a ton of vetts. We have a few c6's and they are way cool. but i still can't wait to give the owner a run at the stop light in my roadster when complete.
Selling the '81 was tough. It was our's from day one. However, things do change. As nice a car as it is, the '81 had it's drawbacks as well. The Z06 is just millenium's (no pun Al) ahead of the '81 and is a better trip car too. Jeanne was having problems in the passenger seat for comfort on long drives so that was an important step in any car we get.
I do miss it, but it's a car and that's how I look at them. Yeah, they're nice, but they're a car.

Feen if you come here and post "Bought A C-5" and don't already own a Cobra... Hummm.... Make me wonder. I considered buying a C-5 this year ('99 or newer). Insurance for the C-5 about a hunrdred a month, taxes 'bout a hundred a month. Comes to 'bout $2400.00 per year where I live not including the downward price every year. I won't tell you my FFR tax and insurance is less than $300.00 a whole year (yes, Tax and Insurance).
I've always wanted a Mini Cooper and found a light totaled (2003 "S") car while looking for a wrecked C-5. For me the Mini makes better sense than the C-5.
