    Rob, good article and good history lesson for a "newbie" Corvette "hope to be owner". While I'm nothing of a authoritarian on the histroy of the car, in relation to other sports cars, I can say there are many of us out hear in the market place who really aren't being given the chance to "establish a relationship with the Corvette" like many of the current posters, simply because we can't get our hands on the car! Design, style, evolution versus revolution.....it's neither here nor there for those of us who have been standing in line for "months" after putting down hard cold cash to own a corvette. It's ashame for Cheverolet to have a market for the car and it seems that they can't deliver.....at least in a reasonable time. You would think after decades of getting their pants beat off by the Japanese, they would have gotten it right by now. Again, being a newbie, I hope someone can convince me that it'll be worth the wait. I continue to be patient after five months!

    I think part of the "Corvette experience" is the fact that you own a car that is somewhat limited. It's something like owning a boat. You start off with a small one (earlier model Corvette) discover that you love boating and then go for the yacht (new Corvette).
    BTW boaters usually wave to each other, much like Corvette owners.

    In my opinion, another part of the Corvette experience is a product that people can afford. I always thought it's a world class sports car that a blue collar person could obtain. But with the unknown MSRP of the C6 Z06 and the inevitable price gouging by dealers, I think they're going away from that principle.

    That I will agree on. The price of the C6 is OK in my opinion, a new (first on your block) Corvette was always overpriced, but the ZO6 is way out of line. I think the General made a miscalculation there, but who knows?
