Trading the G for a Corvette. Opinions?

I was just offered a 2001 Corvette Black with black leather, targa top, 101k miles, SLP exhaust.






I check out the car today in person and it looks pretty good and sounds amazing. Ive always loved american muscle v8s and have always owed them. The G is my first import and I love it too so Im torn between them.

My G has 85k miles, 2004, MT, all options except navi.






What you guys think? Should I pull the trigger?

I dont think you should.

That Vette has alot of miles, sure it runs good now but you dont know whats gonna break on it next.

Now your G im sure you know everything that you have done to it and replaced already. If its treating you good why not keep it.

go for it. It only has 15k miles more than your G and the options for building an ls1 are endless and relatively inexpensive

If you're going performance...Vette no question.

If you like the balance of looks, and fun...G IMO...


Soooooo send me your headlights if you make the trade

I dont know man!!! I would normally say go with the vette but its an AT and wont be as much fun plus its not the new more sexy body style that is out now. I believe that Vette only has 350hp anyway, couple grand and you can have that HP and still have back seats.

Thanks for everyone's input. I think you guys are convincing me to keep the G. Trading for the vette does feel kinda like a downgrade. The G also feels like it'll be much more comfortable DD.

I missed the part about AT. AT corvette eqauls some lazy tool looking to front that he has a vette. You dont buy an AT vette anymore than you buy an AT G.

It's a deal breaker.

The Corvette is the only American car I would ever consider buying/driving. Even with high mileage if you keep up with the maintenance schedule you'll love the Vette, the LS series engines are amazing....that's the other car in my garage.
