"I've read a lot of these reviews and all I can say is that the hype and exuberance displayed by most reviewers is true. This is my first Corvette. I am a fifty year old that has owned a lot of sports cars, from Camaros, 350Zs, etc. My stock 2004 Corvette Z06 has no equal to my previous cars. It is truly the fastest car I have ever owned; My old 2003 Nissan 350Z had a supercharger pushing 400 HP, but it didn't have the wheels or handling to approach what the Z06 can do. Make sure you understand what this car is; it's a race car pure and simple. It is designed to go fast and hug the road. Don't expect it to be quiet or cushy or reserved. It's raw, loud, and extremely powerful, and most of all, extremely fast. With newly broken in tires, you can get 0-60 times close to 4 seconds in this car. Enjoy it, keep it clean and in good condition, and I predict the value of this car will hold and improve over time as the new Corvette's are now passing the $100k mark. If you find a good one, Carpe Diem!"

Z06 in the Rockies!

"I have owned this Z06 for over 11 years, and it's gorgeous styling STILL turns heads! Love the cockpit, especially the Head-Up display! All 405 screaming Stallions unite when called upon to blast off down the road, planting you firmly in your seat! INCREDIBLE CAR! I average 28.8 MPG cruising at 80 MPH on the highway. AMAZING! BRAVO GM!!"

"Finally able to afford the car of my dreams, last year they built the C5 (2004). It never disappoints, I'm 6'1", no problems, handles as a Corvette should. Only modification is cold air intake from K & N, I get 28 mpg all day long at 75-80 mph ! Installed all LED lighting, as if it wasn't a head turner anyway, at dusk and night it hard to believe I own this car. Only annoying thing is the pop up headlights, motor stops get worn and need replacing to work properly."

"Unbelievable Vet ! I had a 85 Vet back in 1990, the difference between these two are like night and day ! My 2003 , 50th Anniv. vet is an Arizona vet. I bought it from a retiree that belongs to an Az. vet club. The reason he sold it was to upgrade to a C6, from another member. This vet has NEVER seen winter any kind,it doesn't leave the garage if there's any hint of bad weather. It's in MINT condition ! the pre. owner had it clear coated, it has lots of extra's installed, Exhaust system, Air intake, Short throw shifter, Michelin run flat tires, I have ALL the factory parts that came off , and ALL are like new ! This car was used as a show car in Az. It drives, handles, like a dream !"

"This car has been in the family since brand new. It was my Fathers. I have since put the Borla Extreme Exhaust on it which I highly recommend. Awesome ride. The paint is awesome for factory paint. Not just because of it belonging to my Dad but because of it being the 50th Golden Anniversary I would never sell this car."
