Love my ZL1 but....

I enjoy my car very much but I was at my dealer today and saw my first live C7 Corvette. What a beautiful car! GM hit the mark for sure. I've owned Camaro's my entire driving life and my ZL1 is my 10th. In 04 I had a ZO6 also but the two seats were an issue with me having two girls and a wife. But my oldest daughter is getting here driver's lisence in the spring and she is will be able to drive herself and her sister around. The parent taxi days are finally coming to an end. So now two seaters are back in the game and the Vette is a beauty. The pricing of the new C7 is very attractive. The Z51 stingray in the showroom was only 4k more than my ZL1 MSRP. I wonder what a Z06 package will come in at? Like I said I love my ZL1 but GM has really given me a lot to ponder over the winter months!

To each his own. I'm keeping my ZL1 but will be in the market for another vehicle in a couple of years. I cannot predict the future, so do I go with a Chevy sedan, a 6th Gen Camaro, a C7 Vette(maybe a Silverado)? Don't know. Whatever it is it will replace my car as a daily driver. Really depends on where I land, how far from work I am and so therefore what my commute looks like.

I'm going thru the same crisis! Love the new Stingray! Saw my first one in person last Tuesday and it looks even better in person. It was the dark blue one, Night Race Blue Metallic, but I only got to look because it was already sold. I wasn't about to ask if I could sit in some else's car, so I got to do a walk around. They were prepping it for the owner, still had all the plastic covering inside. Can't wait to test drive one. Too late to get one now, I wouldn't have time to go thru the break-in with the temps dropping so I'll have all winter to decide what color. Really like the gray, then I saw pics of the white, and now that dark blue......

Then I get back in my ZL1, and it's holly crap, I think to myself, this is one bad-ass machine as I stomp on the gas pedal! Only takes a second behind the wheel to be completely enveloped by her power and beauty! I'm going to have to park them side by side. If I hit the lotto I'll own both for sure!



And then there's the Love of My Life!

+2.... I know it's hard to keep negative comments to yourself Mr. Urban Legend.But please try. I more think Bumblebee is referring to past post negative comments you have made in other threads. You seem to want to start arguments quite a bit. I've seen other members call you a troll in the past so why not try and change your image and be kind. You may enjoy this forum a bit more!

Really. Other threads? Why would other threads even come up in here? I call it the way I see it. If you or anyone else doesn't like it then it's your choice.

I love the C7. Finally saw one in person and it looks great imo. My only gripe is the drastically different prices based on the available options. A Z51 (but with an auto) with MRC, performance exhaust and other goodies comes in at $69K. I will wait and see how the next few years plays out with the upcoming CTS-V, ZO6, 6th gen and yes even the new Mustang looming on the horizon.

It all depends on your personal situation.

Well, for me - I started looking at the C7's as I sold off my Procharged C5 2003 Vette over a year ago. My 03 Dyno'ed at 480 RWHP and was a toy for me, driving only on sunny weekends - definitely not a daily driver.

This time around, any new C7 would become my DD. After building my own on Chevy's website, I noticed that a new ZL1 was cheaper and not to mention more powerful to match my C5 supercharged power that was fun to have. Also, as a DD - the ZL1 gives me a back seat (not much) but my Grandson can fit. Also better trunk space and a little easier for me to get in/out of (as I have a prosthetic left leg from a motorcycle accident over 30 yrs ago - forcing me to automatic only).

So I joined here to learn more about the ZL1's as my plan is to buy one in 2014.

I sure hope so because GM is building some serious kick butt cars with our ZL1's and the new C7! I can only imagine what the ZO6 will have to offer! To bounce back from near bankruptcy only a short time ago and be able to put such awesome cars like the Camaro and Corvette on the road not to say all the other great vehicles they produce is a true testament. I've been blessed to be able to choose whatever vehicles I wish to purchase and have looked at many other manufactures domestic,euro and imports and I still keep on coming back to good old GM! 25 years of being a loyal GM guy! I hope they keep on moving in the direction they are because they sure are putting out some great vehicles for us all to choose from. From a Cruze to an Escalade they cover all ranges of customers and their budgets! A close friend of mine and I traded cars for a day this past summer. He has a Porsche Carerra 4 and I have a ZL1. He spent close to 140k on his car and at the end of the day when we traded back all he had to say was " crap I could have saved 70k and had a lot more fun!". I had to politely agree! Bang for the buck my friends!
