We found the Vette really easy to drive in standard since the engine has more then enough power to allow it to be forgiving. Cathy found it easier to let out the clutch then her daily driver. She does find the shifter and clutch more stiff.

I don't know why the SSR didn't really sell. It'* a good concept, a fast truck, or car with a bed on it.

I got to drive a 90'* ford ranger with a sticking brake, and no power steering. Oh yea, and a dead cell in the battery so if it died there was no restarting it. I did a lot of clutch popping and wheel spinning on that trip.
