....sweetass ride. My dad almost hit a deer on his motorcycle last week (again) and decided there's just too many deer around here to keep riding where he likes to ride, so he's thinking about selling the bike and buying the Corvette he's always wanted. I figured I'd try to find him a good deal, and came across this on a Corvette forum. 11k miles on it, guy has $13k in aftermarket parts in the car, only asking $45k for it all. Whoever modded this car has great taste:

It's an 05 coupe, not the Z06. the 2006 Z06's are going for $75-80k still....I believe the badge on the side says "Z51" which is the upgraded suspension package

The Z06 is pretty much the fastest production car on the planet <$100K.

i'd take anything but a dodge really over a ford. only ford i'd be seen driving is a lightning. all mustangs IMO are either *****'s, overpricd, or old and ugly (5.0 box's). i'm just sad my dakota was totalled before i had the chance to put on the parts i ordered and beat my girls dad's GT mustang.

My dad liked to bike on the backroads since there is no traffic, which is where all the deer are.....the car he can take anywhere. Stop/go traffic on a motorcycle is just about the worst thing ever.

the new Shelby is the only cobra ford is making on this new platform and it's way more than 35k. The GT's are about 28-35. last spec i heard on this one is expect pre-orders to soar and have ford redesign their price point. this is coming from the biggest ford dealership's owner in central Tx. all he'd tell me was over 40 less than 60 but if collector's and demand is high enough expect for to go for 55+.

well that cobra isnt out yet. sticker on the last ones made that were compared to the vettes were around 35. now the new cobra is a whole different breed of animal compared to the new one. ford really stepped up, so an increased of price is expected when the car has been improved as much as it has.

going off weight and how the GT drive's as it still share's the same essential platform , IMO it'll be a waste of $. Big power and all but if it does end up at 50k I'd for sure take a c6 and still beat it.

on the strip i could take my old cobra and blow a c6's doors off all day long. i spent less money on that car all together than a c6 costed. mustangs and camaros have never been good for anything other than a straight line anyway.

it all depends on what you want. if you want to save 20-30k and have the same HP, stick with the stangs. if you gave me 50k i could build a 800 hp car with ease. and it would look killer too.

this is just me but if some *** put 50k under the hood of a mustang he's still going home in a mustang that is only made for a 1/4 mile race. That same z06 will still rape you in a street course. saying you can take 50k to buy an old stang and build it up is like saying i could buy a 93' vette for 9k send it to lingenfelter and spend 41k on upgrade's and have a vette that'll run 10's. Any car can be made faster than a corvette z06 it's just very few that can be made to drive the way they do for the same price.

You can get awesome suspension that rides smoother than a vettes for 10k. I run 12 lbs of boost and have 400 horse, let me run 20 lbs and ill be over 500.

ownage9
07-01-2006, 12:21 AM
And you're an idiot, he can't be much faster than my stang if he still has the original block the car comes with. 400 is pushing the short blocks to their limits.

good for you. spend 10k on suspension if you've spent 9k so far and say 25 for the car if not more depending on when you bought it right? you're in the 06' vette area now with the same horsepower and i HIGHLY doubt that stock stang block can take 20lbs daily of boost. i might be wrong. again though, you can buy even a 98' for 20k now as for corvette's. i saw one last month locally for 19,800 figure if i spent the kind of dough you want to drop in your stang that 98' vette would put out over 550-600hp with ease and still be a corvette.

Corvettes parts are more expensive, less mainstream. No, it's not safe to run 20 lbs, which is why I said "let" me and I would have.....And the new shelbys blow the doors off the z06s.

ok before i was seriously thinking you're a moron for thinking you can run 20lb of boost on a stock stang engine and now you've just proven it. there is no way in hell a shelby gt500 will even compete with the z06. less hp same torque, worse gear box and transmission, worse suspension throw on top the 350lbs more it weighs you don't have a car that can even compete.

you truely are an idiot, or perhaps you have a very poor short term memory because either you are in denial or you really are just that dumb.

Dude seriously, before you attempt to insult someone. please make sure you can spell the words you use. Again, I never said age determines ability, I said that you were assuming you were god of racing b/c of the people you know. That was all I implied or said by that statement, if you want to argue again please spell things correctly kid.

he's tuning his stang' to run with 20lb of boost so that when he beats a z06 in a 1/4 mile and blows a piston through his hood, he can say he's still spent less $:D

I still prefer the look of the shelby mustangs or saleen mustangs over the 'vette
