My dad's talking about selling his XLR, he never drives it because the MI roads are garbage. Who wants an automatic Northstar-powered :poorvette: ?

Less scrape for sure, way less air dam and it runs on really large OD tarz. 235/50/18 all around.

What used to be forum where members focused on fun has now turned into a depressing psychological stew of real estate depression. Airboaters with potfiller palaces hating on guys for wasting time with river rock. Guys who used to own 944 turbos now drive electric pods to work and trade hobbit holes for yellow hobbit holes with upgraded kitchens. No crotchfruit? Why have freedom when you can obsess on another trip to home depot and being in the "right" part of Detroit. Sounds hilarious just saying it. And then let's not even talk about the conversion to Petersen's 4 Wheel and Offroad forum. Because crumbling infrastructure has made everyone a Mad Max character.

The scrape and the woman hate is killing you, the Corvette is a highway and track star, not a vehicle suited to around town duties.....at all, unless street racing is your thing and even then, the C5 needs some upgraded hp to stay relevant today. Try something else.

I gotta say, the biggest problem I have with your proposed move is losing the unsung utility of the Corvette hatch for pretty much no storage. If you're ok with that, go ahead.
Hold on one second here pal.
:bender: has a quattrofuglio
I have a Kamry XCE
Detroit has some modded to the sky C5
:waxer: has a full stable of vehicles from the insane to the :truk:
You, yourself have a C6 GS.
(too lazy to type out all the other great vehicles)

We all came from POS GTIs/TDIs/Golfs/whatever

IF anything we're all driving the best cars EVER. Who the FK is depressed here?
We're just a forum that realizes the side effects of certain vehicles in certain situations and we point them out, this isn't some call to revert to driving a 150k mile prius, but not acknowledging how shitty of a DD a C5 is and looking for something "else" is going :fullretard: keeping your eyes open for better options leaves room for continuous improvement.

I'm :wrong: but IMO the Northstar actually sounds better than the LS1. Dat 20th century DOHC design vs Moses-era SUHC.

Oh wow its a targa too :megusta: That would be hella fun to rip around in on a Sunday. With a tubi exhaust they sound great. The QV's are relatively simple to work on too. Been repainted doe, so non-original paint. Also, IIRC the tan interior Ferraris had tan carpets to match the seats and lower dash. This doesn't, indicating it was at least partially reupholstered at some point. Custom rear valence..... No way is this worth $80k.

Cool car though.

I watched an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee featuring Amy Shumer in a Ferrari and imagine that to be the used old Ferrari life.

It's not for me...

I should also say that they are nice to look at and listen and drive on rare occasions.

I'd love to own one as a fourth collectible car if I were rich. It would have to have it's original paint/sests/etc doe.
