If you could; with cash being no problem, what kind of C6 Vette would you set-up, in terms of power, suspension etc... And, more importantly, why would you set it up, in whatever manner you decided i.e. ultimate street, race only etc...? :D

Okay, I here yeah! No doubt, the perfect answer, factory built, warranty, you can't go wrong, but let's go the creative route. What would you build? :D


Just buy a ZR1 if cash is no problem, nothing like having a full warranty!

What about a Carbon Z06 with a rebuilt motor to incorporate a blower cam and lower compression, then, I would most likely turbo-charge it, blah, blah, blah. I would also have Corrado do a whole bunch of paint work to make it even more unique.

Good question. I know we are not racing or anything like that but I alway wondered why people in the import crowd would lower their cars and put on larger diameter, after-market rims, exhaust, cold air intake, then 300lb of stereo equipment.

So with that in light. As I l would like to have some nice sound but keep the idea of the car, I would have to hold myself back to only one sub. Most likely a JL and I would limit it to a 10". I would add some Focal mids and an Eclipse head unit. For amps...I would stick with JL and Focal as I like to keep things grouped.

If you built that car, or built me a copy using the Carbon, I would figure out a way to keep it in my bedroom!

Oh, I don't mean it would stay in my bedroom. I mean that my bedroom would need a garage door as that is where I would park it.
