Are you going to post some pics of your CTS-V, I would love to see it. My father is considering getting one in a few years, he was going to get a Vette but this is more practical, with four seats and all.Originally posted by cvp33@Feb 16 2004, 12:19 AM
Having owned or been around Chevelles, Impalas, Monte Carlos, Corvettes, etc. since the late 60's I would agree that the CTS-V is the finest example of what GM can do if price is factored in. If not than the XLR is the best example.
I just bought the CTS-V 2 days ago and I have yet to stop smiling. Show me another new car that can match the performance, quality, price and options list of the CTS-V. Can't be done. When GM puts their mind to it, they ARE world beaters.
There's another GM vehicle that not only shares most of the accomplishments you list, but also helped to butter GM's bread during the last 10 or 15 years:Originally posted by BBcamaroSS@Feb 15 2004, 07:54 PM
Well in retrospec( i dont even know what that means but it sounds cool)....it's has too be the corvette..why?:
1. Has good power.
2. Survived 50 years through countless attacks by other car makers too stop its production.
3. Great performance in all areas.
4. Inexspensive for a performance car. 50 grand, its not 80 grand like the viper or 300 grand for a ferrari.
5. Great fuel economy for a performance car.
6. Gets better looknig every year.
7. Its American .
8. Sells more then any other car in its class.
9. The electronics in it are insane.
10. It's a vette, what more can you say.
Oh yea and can you guys add that smiley that has it's hand in the air like he's at a rock concert and he's bobbing his head? that would be cool.
How much did ithe 67 go for at the Barret Jackson Auction, I only saw part of it this year?Originally posted by bigals87z28@Feb 16 2004, 07:51 AM
Vette, 100% Vette. Its part of Americana. The Vette made people think different about Chevy, and to rethink how Americans view sports cars in general. The Vette has been an American icon for who knows how long. If you give anyone a vette, Im sure they wont refuse unless they are some hardcore ford nerd. What the Vette brought to the market was Americas first 2dr sports coupe, even if it was a 6 banger. When Zora and Earl got deep into this car, it became an instant legend. Id love to have a Black with red stripe 67 Vert with the 427 under the hood with a sweet 4spd manual. They sold one at Barret-Jackson. If I had the money, I wouldnt stop bidding till that car was mine.
