New to me 2002 Corvette Z06

After much internal debate I decided to pull the trigger a few days ago on a new summer fun car. Considered a bunch of different options, but a C5 Z06 has a lot to offer for the price and I previously daily drove a 1995 corvette with a 6-speed that I think back quite fondly on.

This one seems to be in really good condition with only 18,xxx miles.

Now if summer would just hurry up and get here so I can take it out of my garage and actually drive it that would be great!

Nice Corvette! Wow that’s super low miles. I had a Zo6 just like that mine was blue it was a great car. Only thing I had to replace was the master slave for the clutch that leaked. I had a ton of fun in that car in my younger days. My first real sports car was a 1995 Vette Black on Black great cars. Hard to beat the corvettes performance for the money.

Best car. Only thing better is the next z06 in perpetuity.

(Bang for buck)

Enjoy the righteous goodness

I’ve managed to put a small amount of miles on it here and there.

My initial impressions are that it is a car that would be very easy to live with. Much more comfortable than my old 1995 Corvette and with fewer interior squeaks and rattles.

I didn’t push it too hard out of concerns for random ice patches, but everything appears to be working as it should!

Awesome you got a little itch scratching time in, not much worst then getting a summer toy in the winter and not being able to at least try it.
When I was looking last summer I considered a ‘Vette also but had already fell hard for the Hyper blue Camaro
