    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.

    Monterey Red.
    07 was the last year for that color. It's kinda burgundy. Real nice red.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Tom. It took a long time to find. I looked at hundreds and hundreds of Vettes.

    The C6, with every single possible RPO imaginable is very complicated. I have a lot of learning to do. It's like learning to fly a new plane when I used to fly.

    I can't believe this car had one owner in Hunginton Beach, all maintenance including oil changes done at the dealer, non-smoker, very well maintained. What a difference between a C5 and a C6. Even the doors are electronic.

    The nav system takes an engineering degree to learn! But I love that kind of stuff.

    I have never seen such an advanced car in my life. It really is amazing.

    It handles like a dream, it even has special handling at slow speeds, very tight.

    It came with the original Eagle run flats but next week I'm gonna put Michelin Pro Pilot sport AS ZPs. I had Michelins on my C5 but they weren't run flats. These Eagles aren't as bad as people make them out to be. The ride is nice, I don't feel anythin gin the road as people claim. I just need to replace them be ause of tread wear as I read the Eagles don't last too long.

    Too much fun.

    Paul, congratulations on the C6! Monterey Red is my wife's favorite color for a Vette. If I ever decide to upgrade to a C6, it WILL be a Monterey Red one! Good luck with it!

    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.

    First, I have no idea why I am not receiving these posts via e-mail. it is annoying.

    OK, here's the deal.

    I changed my mind when I drove this C6 which is RPO'd to the max. I mean it has every single little last option you could possible order from Chevy.

    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.

    Perhaps you've clicked on the "Subscription" box which is just below the Attachments section when you replying to posts? That is the usual way of getting notifications via email.

    Glad you're enjoying your C6.
