This past weekend I got the chance to test drive a 2005 C6 Z51. I hadn't seen one up close before and I must say that it changed my mind; about the looks at least. The pics in the magazines don't do it justice. It looked great! Black on black with the chrome optional rims,.. chrome looked a bit cheap though. I have a 2003 Z06 and wanted to see how the C6's 400hp compared to the Z's 405hp. I was expecting similar performance but found the "old" Z felt faster,.. this of course based upon my highly sensitive seat of the pants diagnostic tool. The C6 is very smooth and perhaps that masks its speed. No doubt it is a fast car. Great site guys/gals.

Well, here's my 500th post ...
Welcome to :z:
Now we won't let you off with a "cya" ... :NoNo:
Enquiring (and idle) minds want to know 'bout you and the Z ... how long you've owned, "good habits" you've acquired in the seat :D, mods ???, pics ??? (tho you can call me out on this too).
Several forum folks here from up your way. Had the pleasure to meet Dan and Kyle Corcoran on the One Lap stop at Summit. So don't be a stranger! :jammin:

Thanks for the warm welcome.
The wife and our two young boys live in Toronto.
As for mods,.. the 03Z is bone stock. Ordered it new from the dealer and absolutely love it. This is the third Vette I've owned. Previous one was a 99 Convertible. Other Vette that I still have is a 69 Convertible. Now that one has some mods,.. forged 383, Dart heads, Comp cam, roller rockers, 125hp NOS shot, etc,..
