    Car looked cool, hated the wheels. Didn't really sound any different than any other C-7 with the mufflers open.

    I saw one a couple weeks back. Was white. Had that terrible looking high spoiler. Eh didn't do anything for me. The only corvette I would buy currently is the Grand Sport. No interest in the z06 or ZR1.

    I see a ton of them [and the GS , Z06, Z51] quite often now

    GS is the best bang for the buck, but several friends have the new Z06s...GS is a favorite if I had that kind of coin sitting around. Maybe at retirement...

    I've seen the Z06 drop a lot during end of year sales....tempting, but again, a huge chunk

    I've never seen one in real life yet. Are they really that rare still or am I just unlucky?
