hahahaha...

Why you got a 20b or something?.. Anyhow, I'd go with the Vette... Hands down. BUT

If you need some room every once in awhile... I'd suggest either the Z28 or the Ws6, Whichever you like.

WS6! I was gonna get a vette but I have to carry some display stuff around for work from time to time and the vette has very limited room.

LS1 is an LS1 is an LS1
The factory mods done to the SS and WS6 cars are not significant enough to make them trully any quicker. Both are handling/appearence packages.
C5 Corvette - 3200lbs
C5 Z06 - 3100lbs
fbody - anywhere from 3400-3600lbs
The C5 vette and fbodies are low 13 second cars stock, and a C5 Z06 is capable of low 12s.
