It's always provided affordable performance and been about providing a great value.

My estimation of base price for the ZL1 is still right around the $54,000 area.
This was my price guess estimate.

I said no around 55K. Does the 54,095 include the GG tax?

I think that is the thread he and Dragoneye were going back and forth in. To be honest, some were a lot more specific.

Relax Stang ...I should be sharing that cookie as I've been stating $55k the whole time too. I got by some people too (although not as bad as you cuz I didn't post my thoughts on every single pricing thread like you did) .

Funny thing is I knew you would post this thread right away...everything around here is soooo predictable...geez!

I know he probably already has a draft typed up for an "I told you so" thread about the ZL1's 7:41 time being on Pilot Sport Cup tires.

Too bad he'll never get to submit that thread

This thread is specifically for Dragoneye, and the price was only part of it, it actually has MUCH more to do with the fact that is is nowhere near the performance level most people on this forum INSISTED it would be at (read Zo6)

No, the tire thing is done with IMO , and I didn't have a draft for this one either, or it would have been much longer, and maybe a little more IN YOUR FACE ish
Like I said, I made this thread because I made a deal with Dragoneye, although I think he was expecting something far different than this

used Corvette vs new ZL1 @ similar performance levels and similar price...

If I am wrong, I will be man enough to admit it, and I actually kinda hope I AM WRONG! It would be nice to have a mid 50's 4 seater Zo6 killer in my garage.

That is the exchange to which I believe that the Blaster was referring.

Actually most of our discussion was done my PM's, I believe this conversation took place before the fact, but either way....
