Here's another nice one. I don't get what you don't like about bathtub Caddys?

You, of course, prefer a more environmentally friendly alternative.

BTW, a 405 hp Z06 is a good track car too, that is if you can stand to look at the C5 body style which is the ugliest vette since the '73. The ZR1 will have better resale and that ends the conversation for me, plus as an added bonus it isn't so ugly that you have to blindfold yourself to get in it.

PS Ever tracked a SLK32? Don't let the automatic fool you, you can move mountains with that car in the real world.
I agree with the SLK32. It is a nice light car.

Also, I am not a fan of either the sculpted front or strange ass end of the C5, Z06 or not.

Amazing thing about the ZR1, they seem to be going for dirt money right now. 22K will buy a really nice example from what I could find on this end of the world.

Pretty sure it's not a 916, but it does look like a typical 914/6 configuration. The four cyl. versions were an embarrassment, but with a six, they were a killer little package.
