    The details: Recipe for the 427: Take from the Z06 one engine, driveline, rear axle, optional Magnetic Ride Control, optional carbon fiber hood and fenders, mix with ZR-1's rear spoiler and lightweight wheels wrapped in Michelin PS2 rubber. Hack off the roof. Drop onto a steel frame (the Z06's aluminum frame would flex too much without a roof). Add open road. Serves one driver and one passenger.

    A good take on the model. It isn't a killer in any category, but the finished product is a classic performance car experience. Get the LS7 while you can, and this car is a great way to get it.
    There are times for thinking, and times for acting, but the art is in the balance

    With the top up or down the 60th 427 is a very pretty car.
