"If you want a fast left hand car with Vietmamese suspension..." they did tear our shit up.

I can't disagree about the plastic comment, but it did beat their precious Lotus. LOL

Yeah our 6.0 liter 400hp beat the Lotus by what, one car? Not to mention it was a Lotus's Elise...a 180 hp 4 banger.

Are you kidding??? I was sitting at a light last week next to one of these... it's frickin great...
I'm a mustang guy so in my opinion it can't hold a flame to the 05' but a stout automobile anyhow..

i saw one on the street about a week ago,
i CANNOT stand the front end. It's just too flat in the middle and they completly killed off the two openings in the front that have been part of the design since '68. The rest of the car looks good though, its just the front is

I'd take the current c5 over the new thing....

Jack, you woulda liked to have been in Royal Oak two weeks ago. Someone drove a new Stang GTR down main street. It had an M plate...but awesome none the less.

As far as the vettes go, I really dig them especially the round rear tail lights. The front takes a bit of getting used to, but its just one less thing to break (ie the flip up lights). Its pretty peppy too. My buddy brought home a new convertible two weeks ago (GM's car) I thought it was just as fast as the '04 Z06.

about a month ago I was coming out of the car wash on 17/mound... when out of nowhere a bright red streak went by...
it was a GT40 with an m/plate.
This thing was amazing, I'd never seen one in person.... I guess they will be available soon..
oh, back to the vette..
I think they finally got it right:
shortened it, cleaned up that ugly back half, made the front a modern design ( i like the lights )
now all they need to do is:::: come out with the stripped car they said they would 5 years ago.. $32,000 only available with a stick, hardtop and cloth seats... oh ya, only in white...
