Tempting offer on a Corvette, need your opinion!!
 
1 Attachment(s)
A month ago I made this guy an offer of $50,000.00 CDN for this car. $6K less than asking price. It was too low at that time, now he emailed me saying he may accept it. What do I do. It is a 2006 Z06 with 15 thousand miles on it. manual trans, after market stereo, navigation. what do I pick?? this or the 2SS/RS LS3, SIM with CGM rally stripes that should ship any day. Camaro was only going to be driven on nice days, back seats barely used if any.

Damn that's inciting ( to me) idk


where are you gonna drive the camaro or corvette weekend car or Daily driver?

logan1080 08-10-2009 08:21 PM

was planning on only using camaro on perfect days, not a daily driver.

Blakout 08-10-2009 08:21 PM

Are you serious? Silver with Gray stripes? For some reason I don't think that would look right...maybe I'm not picturing it right?

TaylorRyanSS 08-10-2009 08:21 PM

sorry but Z06 ftw!! I would not take the ls3 corvette over the camaro, but the z06 I would

ljustin293 08-10-2009 08:22 PM

that's tough choice..I would go with the camaro..a little more practical for me..now if it's not your only car..then it's a really tough decision...

logan1080 08-10-2009 08:24 PM

SIM with CGM rally stripes looks good, the pics I have are too big to upload. ANyone have a good pic of the color combo?

gold5000000 08-10-2009 08:25 PM

well yes the Z06 is more powerful, but if you live in an area that has lots of hills like where i am i say take the camaro because its further off the ground with less of a chance of you bottoming out. plus the camaro is brand new and its always nice to have a new car

logan1080 08-10-2009 08:26 PM

I live in saskatchewan canada, no hills haha.

SlingShot 08-10-2009 08:29 PM

I think the Camaro is more practical, TCO is less and full warranty ......

1320junkie 08-10-2009 08:31 PM

Z06, tons of guys use the for daily drivers and the 2006 model is the fast one...just make sure the roof recall has been done if not it's a free dealer fix..

Camaro_Corvette 08-10-2009 08:33 PM

Ah, I see you have the same decision that I have tormented myself with every day since I joined this site, and even before that. The answer is this. Do you want a badass car that goes really fast, or do you want a badass car that goes pretty fast while hauling a couple friends around. That is really all it comes down to. Both cars have the wow factor right now. there is no reason you should be dissapointed with either car, but in this case, my vote goes for.....you've got the cash, go for The red one.:D:D:D

InfinitR 08-10-2009 08:35 PM

Is the Corvette still under warranty AND is the warranty transferable?

That would be a major consideration for me.

Which would you rather have? Are you financing? Is the money an issue? How much difference are you talking bottom line and is that worth it to you because either one will be awesome.

Good luck either way.

Vette 1st...always
 
There really is no comparison. If you've never owned a Vette, get the Vette.

Thrillz 08-10-2009 08:36 PM

Have you ever owned a vette? They are an amazing machine no doubt about that. My father-in-law is a vette guy and have taken rides with him in them and can tell you they are a totally different animal then the camaro. Personally with 2 boys i have no use for a vette as they would always want to be with me so 2 seater ftl. I went to a local vette show with a 2010 camaro that was around i spent the whole time staring at the camaro lol. The vette's did nothing for me personally. Also you haven't sat in a low car till you sit in one of these puppies. Love to watch them drive by though on the roads.

GOLDDOG 08-10-2009 08:37 PM

I like my Camaro, but everytime I drive the Vette the true winner is apparent.
Definetely go for the Vette. You will not be disappointed.

I would personally correct this and say "Do you want a badass car that goes really fast, or do you want a badass car that goes really fast?"

It's a win/win so long as the condition of the cars are both exceptional.

My exact thoughts when I read the thread title, ZO6 Vette= 505hp LS7 :D

logan1080 08-10-2009 08:40 PM

the vette would only cost me 2000 more than camaro. So not missing out on too much cash.

tjbusa 08-10-2009 08:40 PM

Get the camaro.... Post on the corvette site and the answer will be different. I love my ss camaro so I'm biased

Then my main points come down to the warranty issue. Check into it (transferability) and have the car inspected professionally if you can.

Scrappy Doo 08-10-2009 08:47 PM

That is a hard call. How bad do you want a brand new car? The camaro will have never been driven, and all the miles will be put on by you. You ordered the car, so it will exactly the way you want it to be.

However, that is a good price for the vette, and 15,000 is not a lot of miles. I am assuming that you know how the car was driven/treated/maintained so that shouldnt be a concern.

They are both serious hardware and there is not a wrong choice to be made here.

The question that only you can answer is what do you think is the best fit for you?

Grandeos 08-10-2009 08:47 PM

I'd say go for the Camaro SS! Puts the Corvette to shame (in the looks dept.)!!
In my personal opinion, the Corvette is a cheap looking sports car. But thats ME.

Keep in mind though, that the Corvette C6 is at the end of it's life cycle. It would suck to drop $50k on a car just for it to be old and outdated in a year or so. Versus the Camaro, which I would assume still has a few (3-6) premium years in it before a major re-design.

logan1080 08-10-2009 08:50 PM

I have no idea how this person drove the corvette either.
