Is your Z06 your first/only corvette? If not, what other vettes do/did you own? What was/is your favorite and why. Just looking for some entertaining posts.

My 2 vettes - 1970 LT-1 and 2001 Z06. Love both - but my wife is not too excited about the 70 LT-1.

This Z06 is my first Corvette, I've been a Mustang owner since 1988


The cars have included:

'88 LX 5.0
'93 LX 5.0
'96 Saleen S281 Speedster
'97 Saleen S351 Speedster
'98 Cobra
'99 Saleen S351 Speedster

I must say, I'm very happy with the Z06. I traded the Cobra in for it a week ago. Currently it's my daily driver, until I decide what to do with the other Mustang I have in the garage at the moment

3 1999 FRC???? Damn! How did that happen?

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

I drove the 1999 Pewter Hardtop and the wife had the 2 1999 Black Hardtops. The first Black Hardtop had defective paint, so the dealer ordered her another one. She got to drive the first one for 4 months in the Winter and put 3000 miles on it. When the second identicle Black Hardtop arrived, the dealer traded her even up. Nice dealership!!

I, too, am a Mustang-to-Corvette convert (although I still have the '93 Cobra, and still appreciate Mustangs).

Never had a Corvette before (or a Chevy, for that matter). The Z is my first, and a heck of a first, I'd say!

Still have a '97 Jeep Wrangler (bad weather, roads, and neighborhoods), and the Z for everything else. Just gotta sell that Cobra now...
