    Your right...this is slow, like a Ferrari. The Z06 is for racing and this is for collecting. Why the hell do you think it is an aniversary edition?<!-- Signature -->

    I bet the price of Vettes will drop slightly with the absence of the Camaro <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    Went looking threw my list of websites for car stuff and didnt find the guys site, but heres a page that has a very wide selection, its hyperlinked to one of about four sections of Rally style wheels, American racing has some others you may want to look at. Its a decent site, my friends and my dad used this place to find what they were looking for before going to a shop.

    ChrisDraper is right, this is mean't to show off 50 years of hard
    work, you must be misundestanding people, it isn't that it's not fast but that it isn't the ZO6, so realize, that this is not going to be as powerful as the Z06 that's not what it is made for!!

  9. Re: You guys don't seem to understand!

    i guess to all of u that say 350 hp is not alot, well i guess u havent floored a corvette. this is so powerful that u cant even imagine if u havent driven it. while i disagree with the 50th annivesary corvette not being offered as a zo6. u can take this car on a track and tear it apart and beat most of the supercars on the road today. dont argue with this cause all major magazines have said this about both ls1 and ls6 version vettes. while most would be stored away and driven rarely, guess what with something that will go up in price, u just cant argue with that now can u
     
  10. 350hp is alot,

    1971ElCaminoSS

    350hp V8, Munse M-21(4-speed), 411 posit traction, high-rise
    alluminum manifold w/ holly 600 carb, high proformance cam, 120mph

    floored that, but that wasn't my point the point was people were calling it dumb and slow, I me and chris Draper were trying to say that that is not why it was made, it was made to show fifty years of hard work!!
     
  11. The reson that it only has 350hp is because it wasnt made to race,
    It was made to comemorate 50 years of hard work. Most of these cars will be locked up by collectors.


    If someone wanted to race in a Vette they would buy a Z06, thats what it was made for. People would be stupid not to!<!-- Signature -->

    No what YOU Don't understand is that a corvette is not a family car, nor is it an SUV, no is it a minny van, ITS A SPORTS CAR. and sports in LAMEN TERMS are made to go fast... and you say only 350 HP i don't know what kind of weed you've been smoking, but 350 horse power is a mountain of power! So don't say stupid shit, besides z06 are made in smaller numbers and are harder to come by so people who cant get them race corvettes<!-- Signature -->

  15. Re: You guys don't seem to understand!

    This car may only have 350bhp but, 0-60mph in 4.7seconds is not slow.
     
  16. Re: You guys don't seem to understand!

    there is no "ONLY 350 HP" thats retarded
     
  17. Re: You guys don't seem to understand!

    If you guys thought I was insulting the vette, yuor WRONG!

  18. Re: You guys don't seem to understand!

    I liked the looks of the old vettes better. these new ones are starting to look like any old car on the road. even though they still turn my head... most people would just think they're a common convertible (most people are idiots). but, there was definitely no missing the old nasty mean menacing look of the old stingrays that just ooozed "don't #$%# with me".
     
  19. Re: You guys don't seem to understand!

    I like the new ones. and the C4s.......nice<!-- Signature -->

    When you do start restoring the 427, go out and look on the net theres a guy that builds custom original style rally wheels, but there wider than the OEM rims. I think they ran 10 on the back and 8 on the front Im not sure. He's the same guy I talked to about doing a set of 10.5 wide OEM style Impala Rims.<!-- Signature -->

  23. Re: You guys don't seem to understand!

    Don't think it's a slow or dumb car. I do think the best way for GM to have commemorated 50 years of hard work is to build a Corvette that would kill everything on the road. Anyone disagree with that? I own an 82' Collector's Edition Vette (last Stingray) that everyone is screaming at me to keep original because it only has 70 grand on the odometer. Come on though, 200 hp in a Vette?? So I'm dropping a fuel injected 383 in it good for 460 hp and the same torque. Engine should be here in a couple weeks. So as I was saying, more hp = best way to commemorate the Corvette. Still a nice car though.
