Default Why do I want to sell my car?

Well I'm asking this question to myself over and over this week,
I went to a Chevy dealer yesterday to check out a 08 corvette and as soon as i arrived about 5 salesmen and a few customers were drooling around my car and asking me questions, I didnt get the corvette even though they offered me a good trade in value for my car.

I really dont know why i want a faster car, i dont even race this one!! LOL

I guess i want to own a piece of American History with the Corvette

END of RANT!!

I've gone on like, 20 rants about how my 06 vette was inferior to the Z in everything except speed, so I'll skip it; but that's a lot of money to lose just to "own a piece of american history." Unless you make serious money, this is a bad decision.

Seriously don't bother if you like driving and cars in general. I just got rid of my '08 vette (470HP) for the Z. Much happier now.

My buddy just broomed his '06 Vette for a 370 to go along with the 350 he already has. Neither of us are expressing any remorse..

The vettes were just something we needed to try.

I thought he was needing to buy his future wife an engagement ring and was deciding to keep the car or the girl...

To the OP, you can always modify the car if you really need that extra BOOST(TT)...you'll be completely satisfied with that, IMO

I want more power, too. I love the car but every now and then I wish I had a 'Vette!

I think about this also, then I just Google an image of the current Vette and it reminds me why I came here. Also, many people I talk to who have owned Vettes and drive them (not just baby them), say they are great weekend cars or track cars, but to daily drive a Z06 can get "rough."
Now I am young and sort of blew the rough comment off, but the more I think about it, I do like having an enjoyable daily drive with the Z but also being able to push it and know it can handle somethings. Not saying the Z06 is bad, since I have not tested one personally.

I still love the look. I think the interior is a big let down but the rest of the car is great.

I have driven the Z06 and, IMO, it's roughness is about the same as the Z. It didn't really stand out as a harsh riding car.

Most of the complaints are probably from the older guys with bad backs who have enough trouble as it is getting in and out of anything lower than an SUV.

First and foremost, too each their own!

BUT... I can honestly say I've owned every car you could want. An M3, M6, SL550, Rovers, F360 Spider, 996 Turbo and yes a Z06 (not to mention about 10 others or so)

Out of all my cars I can only tell you two I really couldnt stand, the M6 as it felt HUGE and not fun and yes the Vette. It felt really big, front was just too long and its hard to get comfortable on tight roads as you just can't see much of the car when driving. The Turbo was one of my favorite cars but I lost my *** when I sold it and the Ferrari is too rich for me. I sold all my street bikes to get it only to find that the maintenance is absolutely disgusting....still paying for that damn car and its been nearly a year.

Why the Z...parts are somewhat reasonable and I dont feel bad pulling it apart. Vette's are cool yes but my neighbors Zr1 has 650+ HP and I can tell you right now it doesnt handle as good as my Z. Get another Z and make it your own!!!!

My 2 cents

PS. I lost 18K on that damn vette and barely drove it.
