I went to a local Chevy dealer to check out the new '05 Corvette. I was not all that impressed. They had two cars, one black and one dark red. Both had automatics. The black one had the Z51 suspension/tire setup.

The MSRP was like $51,000. The dealer had put a $15,000 markup on the window !!!
I doubt if they really expect to get that, but there's sucker born every minute.

The car is better looking than the C5, mostly because it is a little shorter with less front overhang. You can't argue with 400 hp and 0 - 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. But I would have liked a bigger change in styling, that made the care even smaller. And still going with leaf-spring rear suspension, that's 50 years out of date.

Maybe the next Z06 will be more impressive.

Trying to talk my stepdad into one of these....his current ride is a Honda S2k. This would be an improvement for him.


Rich, did the interior look any better than the previous?.....
