Went for a ride in C6

  1. Well, my cousin was up for Thanksgiving with his gf from VA. When he gets to my house he tells me to come outside with him and when I get to my front door there is a brand new black C6 Corvette sitting in my driveway. It was raining pretty hard so I didn't get a ride right then but he tells me to get in the driver's seat. He works in the DC area and it is going to be his daily driver so he got the slushbox. I was a bit disappointed by that, but it's his car not mine. He isn't going to be going to the track or auto-x so it's no biggie to him. He also got the heads-up display (track mode is pretty cool), navigation system, Onstar, & heated seats. That night when the rain had stopped and roqads cleared up a bit he took me out in the car for a ride. It had just cracked 1500 miles before he got to my house. He only took it up to about 90 or so, but it was quite quick<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>. It's an awesome car, I can't wait till I can drive it.
     
  2. I'm curious, have you sat in a C5 Z06? If so, was the interior of the C6 a big improvement or what?
     
  3. Alot of those features are standard. And I understand him getting the A4 being in DC and all. Its coll that it is his daily driver.
     
  4. Nice, sounds like a decent car, don't know whetre I would choose a Corvette for a daily driver though.
     
  5. He has a beater Saturn for highly inclement weather. It more than a decent car, it kicks ass. I'm not really knowledgeable of the standard/optional equipment on the C6, just that I would get the Z51 package. I found the interior to be better than the C5 Z06 to answer your question Blitz.
     
  6. Yes, the C6 interior is noticably better.
     
  7. well those are good news venom. hope you will make a report after you will have driven the c6, thanks for the update.
     
  8. Awesome, I can't wait to get behind the wheel of one.
     
  9. i would love to be able to get into one of those babies.. they look like a sweet ride. right now i'm trying to get a 68 or 69.. and i know the ride would be a lot better in a new one.
