Just bought today.
2007, 3LT. 30K on the clock. $31,900.
Another one. Still learning all the bells & whistles
Nice ride. Do you know the GM color name for that red? I like it a lot. It looks darker than normal to me, maybe it's just the outside lighting though.

Congrats on the beautiful C6. But what happened to your love affair with C5s?
Here is your post of less than a month ago.
"I liked my C4 but I love the C5 much more.
I come from an airline background, aircraft cockpits.
To me the C5 is a lot like a cockpit of a 777.
The C6 on the other hand is similar to a lowly Cessna 172.
I've sat in boatloads of 'em but never drove one.
The power and handling don't really get me excited, I like the way a C5 looks. The exterior is sexy, the interior is lush.
The C6's interior to me is Spartan. Plain, it looks as plain as my mother-in-law's Hyundai.
when I'm in my car it's like flying, you become one with the machine.
Maybe I could get used to a C6 but w/o all the buttons and gadgets it's not the same.
Just my opinion for what it's worth."
What was your Epiphany? Just curious.
There are times for thinking, and times for acting, but the art is in the balance
You beat me to this question! I've been wondering about this, too. Paul???

Very nice ride. I hope you get to enjoy it for many years to come!
First, I have no idea why I am not receiving these posts via e-mail. it is annoying.

I like the REAL tight handling of the C6 in slower speeds compared to the C6. The C5 seemed MUCH wider as compared to the C6. I'm totally enamored of the C6 now. I still love the real sleek, almost feminine curves of a C5 but a C6 looks like pure muscle.
Having said that it really is a toss up. I now like 'em both but I prefer the C6 with the maxed RPOs.
Sometime I'll tell you a story about this billionaire in Reno who collected hundreds of brand new cars. 30 of them were brand new C5 anniversary editions. A dealer here in GA bought them all and he has like seven left. They have 15 miles on them. I was THIS close to buying one but my credit union would only finance what the car was worth, book value. They didn't understand it was brand new. I could go on if ya'll ask me to as it is a long story but these cars are loaded, anniversary C5s.
