Re: New Z0-6 Corvette at the Track Last Night.
To me it's about if you like to work on cars for fun, or do you want to go fast with little work? With new cars you just sit in and go vs. old cars that in stock form are slower but are easy to do almost anything with and if it's a '67 or older they don't need to be smog'd so anything is possible. I work on cars for fun, and like to build things; the way they look is more important then how fast they are, plus I can find my car in a parking lot very easy and it doesn't look like everyone else's. It doesn't do much for me when it's just how much money do you want to spend and then see the price drop as soon as it leaves the lot. Case in point I was thinking about getting a SRT8 that looked just like my R/T (Purple), but the loss I already have on the 2016 makes it impossible. The R/T has 700 miles on it and cost 47k; they told me they would give me 29k and I owe 24k after my trade-in so I would be giving up my trade and breaking even. The 392 is 59k aka about 1000 a month for 72 months with no markup, but I just cannot do it. And I know as soon as I leave the lot the 392 is worth 30k just like the current car I have.... Oh, well.....
