Question C7 Corvette Poll

Just an idea from the other thread... (that should be closed).

It looks too much like a Camaro to me, I am waiting for the MoMo edition with the titanium interior which is supposed to be red panda proof.

it's not the numbers... they just have to make them with LV or Gucci tops and then we're in business

Sorry, was my first poll. Its probably better this way so folks can vote without having to be judged on their opinion on what seems to be a hot button around here.

I don't like it.. It's so close to being nice, but so far. I have yet to see one in person, but there are so many details that just look wrong.

Shouldn't we save the comments for the other thread? I thought this was just for poll numbers.

Allan, you can't say the word Corvette around these parts and not expect a hootenanny.

I saw it in person at the Detroit auto show, the car is simply stunning. a lot members on this board hate on,Corvettes and that's fine.

But for those of you who criticize it for performance or handling,have simply never been on a track with Z06 before, the car is an unbeatable monster on the track.

You are just now finding out about Lotus car owners? Look at the demographics shift for the new generation that just got in and also see how some of the self-anointed "OG" members who got the first Elise act. They are not all that different. Funny how some think they are "OG" in 04/05 for buying an Elise when there are members who have owned their Lotus since the 60's.

It's not the brand, it's the owners. Every brand has the same type of people owning it, there is no special Lotus halo around Lotus owners. Don't elevate Lotus owners just because of Lotus. It's just a car. People are people and people stink, no matter what brand of car you drive. They just think their stuff stinks differently.

Is that because of the driver? Because most crashed Corvettes on YouTube seem to have a problem even leaving a Cars and Coffee without spinning out and hitting a curb or a few parked cars.

I have no opinion on it. Don't care either way. No interest. Where is that option?

The same thing can be said about Elise's, have you seen how many are on Copart- most with less then 20k miles on them.

Exactly. A car is just a car. Love it or hate it. The people who have the emotions are no different.
