finally test drove a gt500

i can now say I finally drove one! I test drove 3 cars today, a 2012 5.0, 2005 c6 corvette and a 2007 gt500. the power this thing outputs is awesome! the acceleration i was getting with a 3.55 axle ratio was awesome. now the tires on this thing weren't good at all. they needed replacing. but i was in 2nd gear at 20 mph and i lay the hammer down and i get sideways and just spin. put a big smile on my face. in my car i need to have the same situation in tires but dump the clutch and power shift. i was just driving normal then layed it down. the supercharger whine is intoxicating! I lovved it. it was just a pure animal. too bad they were asking so much. they wanted 37k for it and it was an 07 with 31k miles. ive seen way better then that. i offered them 32k and they didn't want any part of it. oh well. it was a lot of fun!

You know you can find those cars for 30-32k all the time right? Just keep looking if thats what you want.

In my opinion though your better off buying a new 5.0 GT and dropping a sc on that, you will be faster and get a car that hasn't already been abused.
