Did you get yours new?
Yeah I have always liked the looks of the C5 with the hidden headlights and curvy lines, and especially in Z06 form with the notch back. I am the second owner and purchased it with only 27k miles back in 2006.

At least it has some style. Not like the 90 percent of the garbage cars that are on the market today.

You mean 99% of cars, right.

Come to think of it, majority of population (over 90%) buys a vehicle for basically the best numbers on paper. What gives them the best mileage - perceived reliability and lowest depreciation.

these people buy cars without any (Substantial) style.

Whether that holds true for the C7 remains to be seen.
Haha, I have to admit, this current iteration is probably the best since the original... The hard lines work.

I like the car just fine, but they have been pretty ugly, I'm afraid - this C7 is on the right track, though...

Thanks for posting...... Myself I think the 2013 427 convertible was the best Corvette in a long time!
