Default Would you give up your entire collection for this?

Having personally owned over a dozen Porsches, One Lambo and One Delorean, I was never a Corvette person until now..

Yes I would...What would you give up if anything??

Extremely reasonably priced as well. I may consider giving up my 2014 Vette for this one, but not my collection

Russ, same here. Had no interest in the Corvette until 2014, when they revamped it. It just seems to be getting better each year. Sleek, quick and a whole lot of fun. Actually, I wouldn't and couldn't trade it. It only has 5400 miles on it.

Yo. I am but a casual observer to the Corvette World, but there can be no argument that as much as your normal 'Vette driver may be regarded as a total jerk, he is wise enough to know that he is driving the world's best value sports car. Recently, the CR.7 is as competitive as any on the world stage. We're I a younger man, and a deft driver, I would go Corvette. Meanwhile, I'm stuck in the '50s. The attached pix were taken two weeks ago in Kollmar, northern Germany. A '53 or '54 tri-carbed, Blue Flame straight six, with auto tranny. Never been a more beautiful 'Vette, and where I a wild and crazy guy, that would be my ride. Doug

I like the late 60's big block vettes...love the 427!

I miss my 74 Trans Am Super Duty 455 I had in high school between 79 & 81! A torque monster she was!

Definately not! No room for the weekly shop, very expensive on gas and insurance and would be scared to leave it parked in a public car park!

Actually, you would be surprised how good on gas late model Corvettes are even with their big displacement engines. they get better highway mileage than my 2nd car, a Mazda MX-5 (or Mark 3 in the UK) with a 2.0L 4 banger!

That said... the only Vette i ever really liked were the mid 60s Stingrays with a small block 327 ci. the Big block 427 just threw the center of balance way off due to the weight of those engines.

Been driving BMWs since 2001. This will be my next one (M2) and European delivery if possible.

It'd be good to break her in on the Autobahn.

When's the last time you 'broke one in on the autobahn'? You'll have to go out at 2AM, otherwise, you'll have to piddle along with the Opels and everything else under speed limited traffic. Yeah, at 2AM, you may be able to peg your M2. And why did BMW recently withdraw from WEC racing? Couldn't keep up with the big dogs, I guess... Doug

To each his own. You have to limit break-in speed to 100MPH so the Autobahn is good for that. And yes the unlimited speed zones are not as plentiful as they used to be.

And Austria doesn't have them anymore.

Nice!

Is that a '69 in the one year only Riverside Gold? my mother bought one brand new in that color, but with a 350/350. i just have a thing for the '64~'67s, don't care for the split window look '63s.



........any early Chevy is better than a beemer!
