Face it bud. You down graded to the worst of the C6s ever and you are trying to justify it in your mind by running everyone down in this thread.

I'm out of here.

Enjoy your seven year old car.

Guys,

You're acting like him by bashing him. He had a camaro and didn't like it and the "camaro culture" according to his eyes. Dude bought a corvette and he's happy with it. He isn't complaining about his car.

No need to go personal with him. It just closes his ears and makes him believe he's just.

Be the bigger man, guys. If you want to go personal with him for fun, making pics, have at it. Its your time.

If you want to debate with him, feel free but you're just barking at the moon.

So 08 BASE VETTES are putting faster times than the ZL1? Testing with run flats? No launch control? ROFL! Why would you buy a ZL1?

I know I'm wasting my time but eh.

Why people buy ZL1s?

Because it has 580 hp/556 tq, they like the look, it has back seats, they want the state-of-the-art suspension, and/or they like Camaros.

Is the LS3 in the 08 faster? Depends on the driver. 1/4 mi and 0-60s are close by less than a second.
Is it better than a corvette? Depends on your requirements. Apples/oranges.
Are you happy with your corvette? Yes.
Is it overpriced? Matter of opinion. I wouldn't buy one but I understand people want its S/C motor and the suspension which is high tech.


Side notes:
1) Yes, there is a TSB out on the spoiler paint chip issue. But you don't prove it. Well, here's your proof. Its TSB P10319. Also, a lot of people did have this issue.

2) Insurance cheaper in the corvette? Yep. But only because of age and insurance companies believe drivers won't speed in them (go fig). I know as I called my insurance agent a few weeks ago when I was hunting one.

Countering his so called facts with facts isn't bashing him. I didn't post anything to him that wasn't fact. No bashing in my mind.
In my first post many pages back, I threw in a dig about his hood that's it. I'll delete that part if you would like. The rest no bashing here. I even gave him props for wearing the badge. I guess you missing that part.

Even if that's true, that only makes it a driver's race. Calling one car faster (quicker?) than another implies clear and consistent superiority, which is a conclusion not supported by your data.

Bench-racing the match-up assuming changes made to only one of the cars sounds a lot like the excuses people make when they lose.


It appears that you expected too much reflected glory from your Camaro, and your ego took a hit every time Camaros in general got disrespected in some way ("Every review I see sickens me."). Some of that you could have so easily avoided - particularly appearance items that were either controversial or mods obviously "done on a budget". Those weren't the basic car's fault. Try to not repeat this history with your Corvette.

I can't explain or excuse comments made by others directly to you at car shows or perhaps at the drag strip, but if you think they'll go away just because you now have a Corvette you might be in for a rude awakening (unless you stick to Corvette-only events). Those things are outside of your control.


P.S. . . . you might want to keep the Porsche crowd at a good distance.


And FWIW, it bothers me as a Mustang owner that you're blaming the Camaro for things it couldn't possibly fix.

You're a cop. You're not a detective, you're not a private investigator, you're none of that. If a murder happens you don't solve it, you don't scan fingerprints or dna. If a family member of mine gets murdered it's probably because they tried to call you guys, but you took 20 minutes to show up.

btw I never call the police, ever. I was in a car accident once pinned in the back seat because the car went from 65 to 0 in an instant. I sat there in pain (couldn't move) for 35, THIRTY FIVE minutes before any help came.

Sometimes they have their pros but I've dealt with too many negatives to care. Now like I said before I better stop before the Camaro5 mods get all angry.

The best protection for theives, murderers, rapists, whatever, is the one you can do yourself. 2nd amendment baby. 'MURICA!

Go away now, you troll.

Wow, this thread is still open? Must be a record for this type of thread. If only Nightfall or Balls would come back and kick the entertainment up a notch.

66K for a ZL1? I recently worked a deal on one for 57K out the door, zero money down and came very close to buying it but went with a 2013 2SS/RS.

I just looked at a ZL1 convertible the other day, it was an automatic and had an sticker price for just over $65,000. I don't see how any coupe would be that much...

I haven't had any problems with my paint but I had those I be getting GM to fix it or I'd be getting rid of it too. The rest of the problems are yours...and you won't be happy with the vette either. Good luck.

Saying the 2008 is the worst of the c6s isn't "facts". Note that was the year of the LS3. That was just an insult to his car.

Now pointing out it was a 7 yr old car was fact.

Of course not, bro.

Not at all. You actually motivated me to send a similar sincere thank you for being an LEO.



Overall, my point was he came on here saying he didn't like his car for legitimate reasons. But he then bashed Camaros in general, over generalized on the camaro community, and say the ZL1 is pointless.
Some responses have been to bash his corvette which doesn't make sense and isnt necessary. While the "they don't wave" comments are funny, he's going to get defensive and use those bashes as justification that the Camaro community is bad.

I advise let him bark.
