What do getbiggers who have owned Corvettes think of them? Please comment on any year, I'm itching to get one. Not sure which year maybe a mid 90s?

C1-C2 (1950's to 1972) or C5 or C6 (1998-up)
Wouldn't bother with the mid 90's.

C6's should get really cheap when the C7 comes out. I think it's due for the 2014 model year.

My Uncle Collects Vettes... He has like 6 or 7 I think.

My favorite is the 1982 Stingray... That was just a gorgeous piece of machinery.

68 Corvette ZL1 - 427ci all aluminum big block that was supposed to make over 650hp. Some say it may have made over 700.

Yeah I heard they underestimated the horsepower on many Vettes for insurance purposes.

Mine too. Can't compete with the C5-6's in the performance aspect, but they are hands down the best looking IMHO.
When they went away from the chrome bumpers and accents is when they started going downhill IMHO.

Corvettes are a bit small for my taste.

Can be sexy though when done right:

I'll be picking up a c6 in 2 months when the sports car market is at the lowest.

Heads + cam + headers & exhaust.
