I mostly see old women trying to look 30 driving corvettes.
Two vette stories:I mostly see old women trying to looked 30 driving corvettes.
The second gen camaro I am building... I am on the 2 or 3 pedal fence for very close to the same reason...I understandI really like them. And I think they did a heck of a job on it. I’m a hot rodder first and foremost, so love the idea of a mid engine corvette. What would keep me from buying one is the transmission. Automatics are for race cars and minivans and I have never driven one that I’d buy in a “fun” car (and yes, I’ve driven many of those that are considered good). I understand the marketing realities, and that the auto is faster...of course, if I extend that argument, though, I could pay Lewis Hamilton to drive my car and it’d be faster yet!
TopDog-the reasons you state are what I feel would eventually drive me away from my “three pedals only” stance and into something like the new corvette (or Supra- just to invite some hate mail 😁). I did right at 200 military parachute jumps in my younger years, and I’m sure when those come home to roost, I won’t look so fondly on that clutch pedal!
Enjoy that new corvette!
I bought my 55 because it was a 4 speed. If I keep it I will go to a hydraulic clutch, but I am looking forward to driving a dual clutch transmission which GM refers to AS 2 MANUAL TRANSMISSIONS mounted side by side. My son has a Ferrari with the F1 manual transmission with no clutch pedal and it is fun to shift.The second gen camaro I am building...

Based on folks I talked to, 85 K seems like the normal price for an LT2. Mine is a LT1 with special paint, tape stripes and special wheels will be around 64K
