my 08 Vette's glove box just drops down when it's opened

oh and even in brand new show room condition Vettes...pull down the visors and open the mirror covers, it squeaks like crazy. one of mine is already broken lol

the seats are completely and utterly worthless in the corners. i am always leaning on the door during a hard right hander. that said it's pretty comfy otherwise on my back on long drives.

i still love the car like crazy the idiosyncrasies give it character

You are absolutely right but I still think it looks better that an M3

I'd take an M3. Seen plenty of Z06s throwing rods on the track and oil everywhere.

The exterior styling of the C6 Z06 and Grand Sport (widebodies) is fantastic. You will get no argument from me there....hell, it's what drove me to buy the ones I used to own. Here is my old Grand Sport

First time for everything I suppose

I'm sure you probably don't believe me but I honestly do not dislike the GTR. It is an intriguing car to say the least. Will not rule out the possibility of owning one some day.

I know the Z06 to be a beast, and it can be modded for a cheaper price than an m3. But I'm curious, what would it cost to get a c6 z06 to say 700whp?
