oh what to do?

Thought i would ask yalls opinion. Take money out of the equation. which would you rather have a Camaro 2SS/RS with 21" rims lowered 1 inch and a dove tail spoiler or a new 2009 Z06 corvette with 7 miles on it. Yes i am serious......( i eliminated the GT-R when i found out they dont make a manual transmission)

If money and practicality are not concerns, I think you'll regret getting the Camaro more than you would the Z06.

well if you want your car on time go corvette cause at this rate all us people who ordered probably wont see shit till 2010. gm is ****ing them selves on this camaro. many people got tired of there bullshit and bought other vehicle's that were not gm. at least you plan on still giving them your money.

Everytime you floor the Camaro you would be thinking "I wonder what that LS7 would have felt like right now?"

You can easily get the Camaro later on, if you even want to after it becomes more mainstream. The Z06 will always be out of reach for the masses.

If you take away the money aspect and even take away the hp debate. (Cause let’s face it, nowadays you can make as much power as you want). And also with the Camaro having IRS, its handling package can be upgraded to world class levels. I think when it comes down to it, you’re really choosing between a two seat sports car and a traditional pony muscle car coupe. And I think those are two big differences. Traditionally, when I think of the muscle car era, I think of Chevelle, Camaro’s, Nova’s, Challengers, Road Runners, Mustangs, to name a few. The Corvette in my mind was always first thought of America’s answer to the likes of Jaguar, Alfa Romero, Ferrari, Mercedes, etc. As they were interred in races like 24 hours of Le Mans, 12 hours of Sebring, American Le Mans Series, etc. So I think you should make your decision on what “style” or “type” of car you want to drive. IMO, the Camaro has that "Muscle Car" feeling, the Corvette does not.

too bad it's not really a 427.


Even though there are c6 z06's everywhere around here, I would still get the Z06.
