    Default Your vette got totaled, buy used C1-5 or new C-6?

    If your current Corvette were totaled , would you buy another used Vette or get a new C6?

    BTW: It was not your fault, you're getting a check from the moron's insurance company!

    Considering this would be sometime in the future and all the new C6s were available I would get the new Z06.

    Drive careful and watchout for the other guy!

    Used C5 !!!!

    I bought 2 first year new GM models in the past, both were terrible mistakes.
    Also the depreciation issue.

    C5 Z06 would be what I would buy..


    I'd probably buy a preowned 2002 Z06 for ~35 grand because they are such awesome values..

    or buy a new Z06 for around 43 grand...

    If the C6 Z06 were out..I'd buy that hands down.

    I think I'd go with a C6 Z06, but I still don't care for the exposed head lights.Gus

    An eye for an eye-

    I say buy what ya had before. If you didn't want it anymore... you would have sold it already. Besides you weren't driving it anyways because you were trying to keep the miles off before you sold it!!!!

    I think the C-6 looks btchn! Like the fixed lamps and the round lamps in the rear. The interior looks as if it were well thought out. I know the FLP mount has the aerodynamics of a cement block, but you don't need them here in SC.

    So what if I'd have to come up with a bunch of money, I've got 20 years til retirement, unless the OL can get a job making a salary on which she can support me in the level of comfort I would like to become accustomed!

    All things being equal, Id buy a 1967 tri-power 427. No wait, I couldn't afford it in 1967 either. Guess I'd just get an early C-5
