This car is possibly one of the last great cars in GMs extensive fleet of vehicles sold in the US. Let's not forget though that this car, know as America's only true sports car, was modelled after the racing Jaguars of the 50s and was designed to embrace european performance in a two seater. Essentially, the ideas of this unique American car were just the ideas of a European sports car, at least in the beginning. The only gripe I have about the 50th anniversary edition is the way dealers put mark-ups on it. The standard retail is about $50,000...on collector car sites I've seen them selling for $70,000. All that money for a car which is really a standard Corvette, wouldn't you rather a ZO6 and save at least $10,000 plus enjoy a more spirited 405 HP LS6 V8?
