Ok guys Im about to sell my beloved trans am and Im looking into getting something different and I have 3 options. The first is a 2000 c5 stock with 8k wheels with 70k miles for 15k, the second is a 06 GTO thats is cammed and makes 426rwhp for 15k with the same milage, the third one is a 01 c5 with catback, intake, clutch, and 115k miles for 17k. Which one would you guys suggest? The car is going to be a DD but with some ocassional racing.
First one if i had to chose, but id pony up a couple grand extra and get a c5 with a cam and long tubes and such already done to save you a **** ton of money. You know youll end up spending it anyways. Or just find a deal on a c5z.
My reply from the above info would be the stock vette, unless you need to haul more than one other person then the GTO. But from the info given, it is about impossible to choose. Take each for a test drive so you can judge whats wrong with them etc.
If we had pics it would be an easier decision

I have a 2000 C5 6sp manual (red) with 77,000 miles. Goodyear F1 tires (non RF) Vararam Vr-B2 intake, ARH Longtube headers w/cats, Corsa X-Treme cat back mufflers, MGW short shifter and a Diablo Predator "canned" tune. I get nothing but compliments at stoplights and parking lots. Never dyno-ed it. Don't care...... It is very quick and infectious to drive. I plan on camming in the future and then that will be it. One comment I would like to make about the higher price of modding a Vette. When you do a performance mod to a Vette you get your moneys worth because the car is so much lighter. I don't mind paying a little more. The result is greater than doing a mod to the heavier cars. In my opinion, if the Vette your looking at is a manual, then I would definately get the Vette.
