Same thing I said when I saw my first C5Z06. Got one a few years later.

Yup, the first C5 I saw gave me wood. Still love the shape of the C5. It is a timeless classic. Was lucky enough in 2000 to buy a new 2001 vert.

When the C6 was released, it didn't do anything for me. However, when the Z06 was released, that was a fine looking car. In August 2008, I was able to pick up a new 2009 Z06.

Kinda wish I still had both.

My owning of my white C4 was the best times ever, but the C5 was an amazing drive. I am not a fan of the "Transformers" sharp angles of the C7 /C8.
I love the soft curves of the C5. Showing my age I guess.
