If offered 1 of these cars

Given the now known price tag of the beautiful c7 stingray, I was wondering which you would choose if given the choice.

Either the camaro ZL1 or c7 Stingray which would you choose. Granted the price could not surpass 60k. You would also have to trade in your current car for it

ZL1, Camaros are always first for me, I do love the C7 though

Yep. In reality it doesn't matter since I can't afford either.

Even though the C7 looks badazz, for me I'd have to say a bird in the hand. It would be really hard to give up what I have now.

Vette, no question. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the Camaro, but the Vette has been a dream since I was a kid.

It depends. Probably not a wrong decision here. Are you a Vet person or a Camaro person? I've never owned a Vet but that C7 is tempting. I've had 3 fifth gen Camaros and the ZL1 is truly an awesome car. No comparison to an SS, totally different car. I cold order a C7 but I think I'm staying with my ZL1.

Since only old men drive Corvettes, I would choose the C7.

C7 (since I already own a Camaro)

Its the first vette i've seen that would not make me feel like a mid life crisis car, at 38...
