One thing bothers me about this car. It has the coupe glass, and the Z06 outsides. Z06 glass goes at most a foot from the roof, no the whole length of the rear like the coupe.

Wait - he'* got fogs in the lower air damn openings that come on the coupe, but aren't there on Z06 (because it'* behind the mesh). So what, he basicaly put a type R badge on his Vette? Z06 badges, wheels, the fake brake ducts, and grill mesh.

EDIT: Doesn't have the brakes, and the exhaust isn't titanium atleast. I'll bet he doesn't have an LS6 either.

hmm, something strikes me as odd...

I thought all Z06s were hardtops, not the coupe...but that 'vette is clearly a coupe, yet has Z06 brake vents, rims, and badging. It also seems to lack the painted, beefed-up brake calipers that came on all Z06s.

I'd say its a rebadged C5 (but still a damn nice car).

EDIT: looks like BonneMeMN and I are in agreeance, re-badged C5

It'* only a C5. If it was a C6, or a C3 or older, it would be worth the attention. I have to agree with SEman though, the early '70'* corvettes were the best.

there is an after market kit to install the rear brake ducts and the rims are easliy found lots of people put them on their base c5'* .. now why you would put a z06 badge on there beats me cuz its clearly not ...i agree with you guys, not a z06... to each his own though.. i personally would have just saved up for the z but its still nice

you can buy those brake ducts and the ducting to make them functional.

But yeah, it'* a regular C5.

I'd drive it though.

Haha, he went to Burger King. Nice car, you might have scared him with the stalking though.

I don't get that mentality. Maybe because I'm used to being poor, but if I put that kinda moolah into a vehicle, I'd drive it every chance I got. Not just "Every now and then"

Hell, I'd drive from the garage to the mailbox in the thing!!
