C6 Z06 lovers thread

I'm an absolute sucker for the C6 Z06, it is quite frankly, IMHO, the best sports car for the money... It shames cars costing twice as much and shows just how good GM engineers are at making the best of an American icon. When I have the income to support one of these and the speeding tickets I'll be getting, I'm most definitely pulling the trigger. In two short years we'll have an even more powerful C6, drooling just thinking about it. In the mean time here are some pics of a rather cool looking C6 Z06...

The Z06 is one evil ride. If I won $10 million in the lottery tommorow, it would be first on my shopping list ahead of any exotic car, or anything else for that matter. Its also a supercar that's low maintenance and durable, unlike a Ferrari, Lamborghini, or Porsche . Amazing.

You have to have some serious skills to pull that off. Which brings me to another point; the Z06 is not a car for novice drivers, because unlike most sports cars today, it is not infinitely adjustable w/ a bunch of gizmos controlling the suspension and what not, not to mention it's only got two wheels transmitting all that power. So you sure as hell better know what you're doing.

interesting video i found comparing the Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Coupe and the Ford GT. They came to a good conclusion.

While taking a ride in the SS this past Sunday I came across a silver C6 ZO6...beautiful!

As for the drifting ZO6 in the rain video, IMO, I think the guy behind the wheel was a jacka@@. Rent a track...don't do it where you might kill someone.

(sigh-I must be getting to be an old man)

Well, I wouldn't go so far as to say he was that...but off-base, sure. He shouldn't have done that, but he knows what he was doing, not like that mustang driver...

That Black one is pretty sweet.

This one is not exactly a Z06, but it does have the Z06 widebody panels installed and was sent to Lingenfelter Performance Engineering for their 427 engine package.... I think that is what I would have to do if I had the money for a Z.

nice Casull, I think I like the hood scoop back a little like that!
It always seemed so close to the front for me. I'd still buy the car of course...but the scoop on the silver is nice

Yeah, I am a big fan of that hood scoop. It is the Lingenfelter Commemerative Edition Hood. They offer another one that has a larger opening. I will see if I can find a picture of it on a Vette...

I have always wanted a Vette that has been done by Lingenfelter. They just do amazing work.
