Re: Considering a C5 Vette, any opinions?
That is what I was wondering. I already have a car that is a blast to drive... for about 45 minutes. I wouldn't want to take the Z3 to Bar Harbor for the weekend. Sad if that is also true of the Vette.
I know this is not even on the same level as a vette or bimmer but my wife is a Camaro girl thru & thru as having owned a '67, '70, '91 and now her 2015 we bought new. I did not know her when she had the 1st 2 but I bought her the loaded '91, t-tops & all, brand new for valentines day in '91. I guess the excitement over shadowed the ride quality and fuel consumption but it got to be like riding in a log wagon for me so any long trip we would take one of our other vehicles. For the bulk of her career she was a traveling nurse for home health and put over 100k on that car until we finally let my son have it. She then got a Buick and realized what comfort & mpg was but when she retired it was back to a Camaro. There is no comparison between the ride quality of this one compared to the '91 and it's our goto ride now. I recently drove her to Ochsner hospital in N.O., LA which was a 3hr. ride one way and I was surprised how easy a drive it was and my back nor any part of my old body ached after the 6 hour round trip. I do realize that suspension upgrades thru the years make a difference but her current Camaro ride quality is only marginally less if any than the '03 Buick she had, at least on interstates and most state/county highways but it's a different story on many city streets & back roads lol.. Good luck.
