The 60 year anniversary is gonna be awesome! I can't wait to go back to the factory.
Steven Velez Jul 03, 2012
fordfan was fun to have around. i joined during his last 2 or 3 months but it was interesting
Aaron Crisp Jul 03, 2012
Nothing wrong with that Matt, I'm a huge gear head and every good car deserves respect! I love me some Supra, 3000GT, Corvette, GTR, Viper, you name it!
Mark Reider Jul 02, 2012
Can't wait for the C7
Mark Reider Jul 02, 2012
All I can say is:
Matt Piccolo Jul 02, 2012
@ Zachary, non taken from ur one post about the Japanese fanboys lol... I know I'm a JDM fanboy ya don't need to tell me lol
Abraham Mendoza Jul 02, 2012
Yeah, I can't comment on this page anymore unless I use the web page instead of the app. But Fordfan had it coming to him. It's good to look back and see, but its not much fun to be in.
Zachary Maurer Jul 02, 2012
I wish FORDman was unbanned, he made this app soo much fun
Zachary Maurer Jul 02, 2012
The problem is, is that when carbuzz issued the newest update, on iPod, when you hit see all comments, it overloads and crashes if there are over 150 comments on that page
Abraham Mendoza Jul 02, 2012
Oh my, that's a lot of comments, and there would be more if FORDFAN wasn't banned. So much hate back then....
Zachary Maurer Jul 02, 2012
Ahahahah 319 comments, holy crap!
Devin Babyn Jul 02, 2012
Blow mind video: 40+ GTR's revving
Zachary Maurer Jul 02, 2012
@devin, what was the article called?
Abraham Mendoza Jul 02, 2012
Man, that must've been quite a debate. They're not much fun to be in, but its a laugh when you look back at.
Devin Babyn Jul 02, 2012
I was actually interested and found it earlier lol it was 4 months ago something about a couple ripping around some town or something. And I don't know if Matt was in there it was FORDfan hating on it vs at least ten people
Zachary Maurer Jul 02, 2012
@debin, really which one? Knowing me I was probably arguing with Matt, or another fanboy of Japanise cars :) no offence Matt, your not an annoying fan boy
Zachary Maurer Jul 02, 2012
Back off ginger, that arguement was yesterday, this is today
Aaron Crisp Jul 02, 2012
Kevin you're done.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 02, 2012
So Kevin, trying to get the comments to 400 eh? Let me help you out. BMW, boring.
Devin Babyn Jul 02, 2012
Zachary we got a GTR article over 400, almost all on the one page. That was a long time ago though
Zachary Maurer Jul 02, 2012
Carbuzz is blocking me from viewing all comments :(:/
Logan LeMonnier Jul 02, 2012
@abraham sorry just had to say it
Zachary Maurer Jul 02, 2012
Well, I'm still here...
Mario Callirgos Jul 02, 2012
I an not sure what the deal is with vette and GTR guys. So easily riled up!! Never on a Ferrari or pagani article always these two
Zeus Mocha Jul 02, 2012
Had pretty much the same experience.
Aaron Crisp Jul 02, 2012
You know I never much loved Vette's, always preferred the Viper when it first came out. But then my father bought one, and I got to drive it... Nothing has changed my opinion more than that. It is something else to drive, an amazing American icon.
Cory Poteet Jul 02, 2012
Been in lots of vette's... Some good, some were slugs(still looked good), but I remember every time, it always felt special to be riding in, or driving an American icon
Zachary Maurer Jul 02, 2012
And everyone who participated In this article, congratulations, you have just witnessed/commented on the biggest article yet, with a huge 173 comments on this page, and like 287 comments on this article
Abraham Mendoza Jul 02, 2012
That hurts Logan, but I'm too burnt out to do this again. And Zachary, it was mostly me you should be fine. If I'm gone, twas a pleasure guys.
Zachary Maurer Jul 02, 2012
I am glad to see that he hasn't commented in a while now, that will let all of us cool down a little, these arguements are fun, but only once a week, more than that Is just annoying

Zachary Maurer Jul 02, 2012
I'm worried that me and Abraham will be banned by morning, we were getting into it hardcore with that Conner kid :)
Logan LeMonnier Jul 02, 2012
This was fun to read. But I have to say @abraham you seemed to stoop down to Connors level. Not every car not made by America is terrible. And GM cars are literally plastic. Like it or not.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 02, 2012
I actually hope he does. At least read my last comment. As annoying, stupid, close minded, stubborn as he is, i always respect those that never change opinions, because I'm like that too. All of us are. He's just stupid enough to try and CHANGE our opinion.
Tim Preisinger Jul 02, 2012
When I first saw the C6 I wasn't crazy about it... But as time went by it REALLY grew on me. Now I love the car
Dillon Dixon Jul 02, 2012
Researched as it was released. It definitely help boost my passion for cars.
Dillon Dixon Jul 02, 2012
In the beginning, my absolute favorite was the 73 style C3. I loved how much it curved and flowed. As I grew up, I learned to live almost all of them. I remember being all over the C6 vette release, and loving it. It was the first car I...
Tim Preisinger Jul 02, 2012
This has been a fun topic to read. I wonder if Connor will be banned by morning? Either way, I haven't seen anyone post more ridiculous comments on here in months
Dillon Dixon Jul 02, 2012
@abraham I know how you feel! I grew up with muscle cars and 50s/60s cars. (my town is full of them, and I love it) So I obsessed with muscle cars but the vette has always been just special. Muscle car, but with something else.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 02, 2012
Dillon, we can't make them see the light. They believe the blue blood marquees are best due to quality. That's why I hate people like that. They won't open to new opinions. That's ignorance. I once only loved Corvettes, when I was 5. But since then, I prefer other cars over the Vette, but its the first car I fell in love with, that's why I love it so much. I can't help you Connor, you said you wan...
Dillon Dixon Jul 02, 2012
Model. I still don't understand why people randomly hate it for no reason, but I for one love this car and hope for many more great years and for a beautiful and powerful C7.
Dillon Dixon Jul 02, 2012
Where did this Connor kid come from? Anyway, he has contradicted himself several times, and he isn't even making an argument. I'm proud of Chevrolet for what they have done to the vette. From the very well respected ZR1/Z06 to the affordable base
Austin Jobes Jul 01, 2012
i happen to think the new z06s are awesome. my girlfriends dad has and 08. hes tuned it up to 630 hp at the wheels. such a sexy car. and soo quick, when he stomps on her she goes, quick.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
I'm sorry Matt, but I gotta stoop to his level. You know I love all cars.
Matt Piccolo Jul 01, 2012
@ Zachary, yea I know lmao
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Connor will grow up one day and realize what's what.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Lill late to the party there Matt, lol
Matt Piccolo Jul 01, 2012
Well this was fun to read... Not trying to get involved here but Abraham, I think u went a tad too far calling companies like BMW, merc, maserati, jag etc shit... Those are all great car companies and u can't deny it...
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
And we need just 48 more comments to hit 200
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Connor, quit while ur behind, you making a lot of people you are a real a$$ hole
Mark Reider Jul 01, 2012
@Conner, come on man, this is Carbuzz, not Gaybuzz. Why to through that out there, you'll make people think that girl in your pick is your sister. Anyway, I love vettes, but I do agree with you that they need a major revamp in looks and quality.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
And what should you know anyway, you have been on this forum for what, a couple days?
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
What if I don't deal with it, will you cyber bully me, ohhh I'm sooo scared, if you did though, that would be a douche bag move, but eh I'll let you have an opinion
Paul Dickey Jul 01, 2012
I'm the simple minded idiot? That's really funny. I'm sure everyone reading over your half assed argument is clear who the simple minded idiot is. You must be running out of argument when you just start name calling.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
@kevin, ya it is, those are Much more sensitive topics, and plus this is a CAR forum
Kevin Hinkle Jul 01, 2012
Oh is it different? It's still his opinion and he's entitled to share it wherever he wants.
Paul Dickey Jul 01, 2012
Connor keep the subject on cars. Not hitler and sexuality. Dumb ass.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
We're taking about CARS HERE, THAT'S DIFFERENT. And you're not sharing you opinion, your Stating it, its like you hope to persuade people that Corvettes are crap, but the truth is it isn't, it'll beat what you got. Oh wait, you don't have anything.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Ohhh boy nm, Connor just opens up a new arguement
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
I can feel that the arguement is calming down...:(
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
We share our opinion with those who also share it, that's why no one is helping you, they're somewhere else.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
I want to hit 200 comments :)
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Hahaha now it's funny to watch the arguement, and I thought it was funny to be in it...
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
No Connor, your logic is this, "Yeah Hitler killed millions, so Germany is still awful." if you think "Yeah 10 years ago American cars are Crappy, so today they still are." You can recognise the past, but you can't let it judge the future.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
@ Connor and Abraham, yes, every car company has had a bad year(s) and all of them have good years, just wanted to throw that out there
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Connor, no that's not called having a spine that's called being dumb, you can't just go off and tell everyone what to think, especially when you have no proof. You say that American cars are crap, yeah they were, back then. You can't judge a Car Maker for its past, because once, they were all making crap. Just look at Jaguar, BMW, Mercedes in the 80's. Look at Ferrari in the 70's, look at Lamborgh...
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
The comment that started the 120 comment rage is by Tim saying "agreed :)"
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Wait, Connor is confusing me now...
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Glad to see you getting back out of that rocker Patrick, lololololol, jk
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Wow 226 comments and counting on this article...
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Haha Connor beliefs and ignorance are two different things
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Has anyone seen the big bang on tv?
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Well no I wouldn't if they were free, but I'm just saying what I think is wrong with then, like Connor does. He says American cars are cheap, I say European cars are expensive and pointless. But I don't go saying that because its wrong, American cars are getting better and European cars do have purpose.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
*manish, my finger doubled tapped n, sorry
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Oh boy, mannish don't get involved :)
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
@ Tim, yes, yes it is...
Manish Jaiswal Jul 01, 2012
@abraham; your opinion about jag, merc, Bentley made me laugh hard. I guess you will prefer 300c over phantom or ghost.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
@abraham, nbd bro, anytime
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Yes, as soon as Mercedes, the car company u praise Connor, sold them, they were a lot better, hmmmmm
Kevin Hinkle Jul 01, 2012
Actually Abraham my family owns and has owned many BMWs and I have driven many of them and they are very exciting to drive.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Hey, I won't get a new car, how about a 2003 Honda cr-v, but you saying Conner, is that when you need to get a new car, that you ego is going to get bigger, oh god, everyone run away!
Tim Preisinger Jul 01, 2012
Wow... It's been hours since I last checked this topic and Connor is still going off... Pretty sad. ;(
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Neither of my cars are brand new. I don't really believe in buying new cars. But the new 300s now are infinitely better than the old ones. I work for Chrysler Jeep Dodge.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Thanks Zach, more bullets in the Chamber.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Just a question Conner, what year is your 300c? Cause if it was during the time when MERCEDES OWNED Chrysler, then yes it would be crap, but oh, Mercedes owned it...
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
@Kevin: Neither have you or Connor, but he prefers them over American cars. How does that make sense?
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
No not really. Still doesn't mean you know anything about Vettes.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Go get em Abraham... Don't forget about the crap masarati, or old maybach
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
No, I'm not happy because you don't know anything. And IF you know that American cars are crap, then why does youre family buy them so often?
Trent Bourgeois Jul 01, 2012
Okay let me let you in on a little secret. The new vette comes out during next year. It's update is coming.
Kevin Hinkle Jul 01, 2012
Well you obviously have never drove BMW, Mercedes, or jaguar.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
You still haven't given me 1 reason. And these Vettes don't fall over. Ever heard of preproduction testing. Yeah, these cars log in over a million miles, so yeah they don't fall over. And what DO you like? Bentle? Producing cars that are outdated and pointless? Mercedes? Making cars overly expensive and out of reach? BMW? Making cars Joyless. Jaguar? Making cars that are old and without soul. Come...
Kevin Hinkle Jul 01, 2012
IMO Chevy needs to change the look of the corvette... It looks way too old. And having carbon fiber instead of plastic would be great as well.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
I have a sls Amg, sl 65 Amg black series, spyker d8 Peking to Paris, vette zr1, and viper acr, in TEst drive unlimited 2, what now
Trent Bourgeois Jul 01, 2012
"I have a Lamborghini on need for speed, owned."
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
I just act like that to piss off people like you, Connor
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Hey I'm only 14, I'm still immature, lololololol not really
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Tru-dat Jordan, Tru-dat
Jordan Smith Jul 01, 2012
Haha Zach that'll probably happen. And this has to be one of the funniest comment threads I've seen on CarBuzz. Connor-0, Everybody else-1.
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Hahaha Connor doesn't know anything about anything. What cars do you have Connor?
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
I don't thret people, just worry them, when needed, and that's not often...
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
*bigger, and that's not saying Much :) ^-^ :D
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Man Connor you ego is bugger than your...
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
I was joking Connor, and you don't want me to state my opinion, Patrick and a few others have seen that, just ask them
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Racist?! Where are you going with this?! Let me help you out of starting a world war, just give me one reason why its wrong to make a car out of lighter composites? Why?
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Mhm, I dont think carbuzz thought this article would blow up like this, how much u wanna bet all of our comments will be deleted tommarow?
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
@abraham lololololol, it's probably true
Paul Dickey Jul 01, 2012
Connor you're just digging yourself into a bigger and bigger hole. And you sound stupid calling it plastic
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
I'm done with this pointless arguement, but eh, if you (Connor) keep trolling, I will loose it, I hate annoying people...
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Well Connor I'm actually younger than you, but I get respect on this app, cause I'm not a douche, maybe you should learn from your mistakes...
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Damn Connor Zach was having your back, but nooooo. Calm down and be quiet. Besides, you're a douche bag if you buy a expensive car and show it off.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
So what cars DO you actually like, and I don't know what facts your talking about, and don't call an Asian a retard lol
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
And too bad you probably don't have the money anyway, lol, idk
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
You don't know...
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Are you just jealous cause you can't afford one Connor?
Jrias Fosh Jul 01, 2012
I wouldn't be calling any Corvette a POS. Especially since Motor Trend proved a stock Z06 is faster than the 458 Italia. The Z06, a car that is a 88K less, and has 57 less horsepower. And not to mention the "plastic pos corvette" weighs 97 lbs less
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
And @connor, if you actually commented on this forum/app more than like what, 15 times, he has said he has a jeep wrangler, and I think camero, last time he mentioned it...
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Wow this article blew up fast, I was going to say let Connor the troll have his fun...but too late! All of you need to calm down, take sometime off of work, and go look at a rainbow. It must make you stressed Connor, always being outnumbered...so sad
Zack Hickman Jul 01, 2012
The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about.
Trent Bourgeois Jul 01, 2012
Hey, go to a Chevrolet dealership and look at a 100 year anniversary Chevy grand sport corvette. I bet your opinion will change (even a little bit).
Zack Hickman Jul 01, 2012
Selll what they are selling and obviously it is working pretty good if it's been around for 60 years
Zack Hickman Jul 01, 2012
So many people on here are so damn stupid. "oh it's plastic it must be crappy blah blah." it's not like Chevy doesn't have the means to produce a carbon fiber body with a luxurious interior but they don't want to sell a $200,000 car. They want to
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Hmm, just a minute ago you say they're all POS, now only SOME are?
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
I'm glad you can drive. But I still won't take you seriously. You just don't know anything about this car. Doesn't stay in production for 60+ years for no reason.
Trent Bourgeois Jul 01, 2012
Hey Conner, come take a ride with my in my "pos". It's funny how my "pos" has never seen tail lights. Dang, I wish my plastic fantastic was better... ;););). You obviously have no idea. And 19 here btw, not 40+ either.
Bob Turefannt Jul 01, 2012
I don't like the corvette but I do respect the z06 and the zr1 for being two of the fastest cars. They're just a bit of a handful to drive.
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Connor I'll take you seriously when you can actually drive
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Your argument is looking pretty pointless as well since your saying our lives are useless on a Car site. Trying to make us commit suicide or what? Nothing is gained here with your argument. And you'll be glad the car is made of "Plastic" when someone backs into you when you insult their Corvette.
Patrick Joseph Jul 01, 2012
That's more like it! No, seriously I wasn't only trying to say it doesn't matter if your come backs are well thought. Arguing so much over such an unimportant thing is pointless. No need to go deep on the guy and attack him personally
Patrick Joseph Jul 01, 2012
Connor. What are you some kind of psychologist or a philosopher. You're being a nuisance. Nobody is amazed by how well thought your come backs are.
Patrick Joseph Jul 01, 2012
Mikey. I was gonna thank you for reminding carbuzz yesterday about the corvette's birthday. But why would you say eurotrash?
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Hahaha I'm 23. I'm not 40. You obviously don't know anything about Vettes so why would anyone listen to your opinion? I'm sure you and Kevin can't even drive yet.
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Haha I will be talked to like that by a freckle faced Ginger. You're just mad you don't know the difference between "your" and "you're".
Kevin Hinkle Jul 01, 2012
Patrick that is the best comeback I have ever heard! Your too funny!!! Fag. And the corvette is plastic... You touch the bumper and the whole thing moves. Your just upset cause this is the only trashy car you can afford.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Plastic Pieces of crap? I'm sure our "Plastic Piece of crap" could beat your weak ass Mustang or your riced out Civic or your whatever you drive. Why are you even on this page you troll?
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Connor you look like you're 7 years old so we won't hold anything against you. My 4 year old nephew looks older than you.
Mario Callirgos Jul 01, 2012
To the only reason I like chevy! The first American sports car and best... Selling American sports car. : )
Oscar Galvan Jul 01, 2012
Wether u like it or not it's a great sports car. And their super car......... Well ;)
Aaron Crisp Jul 01, 2012
I'm a Mopar guy but can't help but give nothing but respect for the Corvette. What an amazing thing for an amazing car!
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
I bet Connor won't comment on this forum again...
Logan LeMonnier Jul 01, 2012
Great car. The only one I'd drive is the stingray or zr1 but still congrats Chevy
Thomas Isnt Green Jul 01, 2012
Connor XD :) :D ;) :.( 8==D
Judah Lindvall Jul 01, 2012
Personally I think having a car that makes u smile is a good thing :)
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
My absolute favorite car ever made in the history of the world. Thanks GM, for giving me the first reason to love cars. To another 10 years.
Mikey Jimenez Jul 01, 2012
@Conner you expect smiley faces from Corvette fans? Well we expected trolls from eurotrash.
Tim Preisinger Jul 01, 2012
"I expected this many smileys from corvette fans" has to be one of my new favorite quotes :D
Avery Williams Jul 01, 2012
@Everyone criticizing Connor Hahahahahaha!!!! Hey Connor, > ~ <
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
@connor, I'm not a vette fan... I actually like ford mor than plastic, but anyway, this is a great accomplishment for a car company, don't be a frickin troll.
Kevin Hinkle Jul 01, 2012
All of you must those new 6 layer Oreos
Tj Blankenship Jul 01, 2012
Happy Corvette day! =]
Bull Dogone Jul 01, 2012
Your last name is Dipzinski and you're criticizing people on a public forum? Rethink that decision, Dip.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
Congratulations to Chevrolet for making one, if not, the best American sports car, and an amazing supercar, may the vette last for another 60 years, and continue on for lifetimes, oh and Conner, :):):):):):):), congrats Chevy :):D
Nick Sti Jul 01, 2012
Connor = >:-O He's mad bro
Tim Preisinger Jul 01, 2012
Hey Connor, :) :D ~_^ :O
Colby Church Jul 01, 2012
My favorite car of all time, I hope the Corvette never dies and it continues to destroy the competition throughout its entire life. :)

Zachary Maurer Jul 02, 2012
Hey, Abraham, your still here too!!!
Abraham Mendoza Jul 02, 2012
I kinda hope it doesn't go on that long, I'm not sure. Because the Vette was almost always a V8 engined sports car. In 60 years, we might be driving hydrogen powered hover cars.
David Liebe Hart Jul 02, 2012
Very coo video, big fan of the 'Vette though, hope they get another sixty years
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
The comments section that Connor was on, I try to read them, but they don't show up and the app closes. I can't let him think I gave up...
William Downs Jul 01, 2012
it was doing that for me too
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
What's force closing, r they blocking you bro, just tell me what to say if they r, I'll take one for the team, and it wouldn't be the first time...
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
I need help, Carbuzz keeps force closing so I can't respond! I need to finish him off.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
@abraham, ya, I don't even think cooner is even checking this page, so we can just let out our anger at him here, lololololol
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
I try to open up my mind to other cars from other countries, but when someone goes off like today, I gotta stoop to their level. I love all cars, but I have to show them that all cars have flaws.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
I remember when we got excited when an article hit over 100 comments, now...
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
**mike not might
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
And I would learn a lot from people like you, Patrick, and anyone that knew about rarer cars, (lambos ferraris, porches, Morgan's) and I have learned
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Yeah I've slowed down a lot. When I first got the app I would just read everything and try to learn from other people about a lot of cars I don't know much about (Merc, Porsche, Maz, etc).
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
And mile just stopped commenting reciently, I don't blame them, annoying people have came in, I'm about ready to stop commenting too
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
@jordan, ya idk, I Stella see ken comment sometimes
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
I'm workin on 1500 wow! That's a little less than 1/4 of Patrick's comment
Jordan Smith Jul 01, 2012
What ever happened to Mike Hawk? I've had CarBuzz for a while though I haven't commented until recently. And what about Ken Madison? Where'd the old CarBuzzers go?
Bijan Jahanpanah Jul 01, 2012
How do u even think of so many comments don't u ever just look at an article?

Ya patrick, you and Andy were one of the first commenters on here, then an annoying 6'0 south Korean named Zachary Maurer came in and started arguements with you...ahhhh the good ol days, then Connor the troll came in...
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Haha I've had this app for awhile.
Patrick Joseph Jul 01, 2012
7000! Blimey I think he wrote more on carbuzz than carbuzz themselves.
Zachary Maurer Jul 01, 2012
@patrick, just looking at your comments, for your 7,000 comment carbuzz should have an article on that, lol I think you past Andy Rogers now, it's legit, boy that was off topic :)))))
Matt Piccolo Jul 01, 2012
The owner and I had a nice conversation about his and my cars.. And he actually told me to try pushing it in..we got into a conversation about it having some cheap materials inside as i sat in it and we just got talkin about it and then we got to the
Matt Piccolo Jul 01, 2012
I understand it's made of fiber glass, but I shouldnt be able to push it in 3 inches lol, that's not good... And no I didnt get this from top gear (Patrick) I have done it my self as of today since I was at a car show or little meet today...
Terrance Parker Jul 01, 2012
I love Chevrolet but I think a redesign is long overdue for their flagship.
Trent Bourgeois Jul 01, 2012
Also you should watch jay leno's garage for his 09 zr1. The paint on the top is extremely expensive.
Trent Bourgeois Jul 01, 2012
The bumpers are plastic so they don't break if you accidentally get hit at a very slow rate of speed, well at least my c5 is. And that's nice, believe me. (top gear pushed the back end in, they didn't tell you they have a 5mph cushion behind it)
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Oh yeah and the Magnesium engine cradle.
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Pretty sure there's also basal wood and magnesium in them too.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Actually some components of the Vette are made from "nicer" materials. The roof of the ZR1 is made of Carbon Fibre, as well as the fenders and rotors. The Z06s fenders are also made of CF.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
It's reinforced fibre glass. And top gear didn't start the whole "plastic" craze. I don't know who, but people have been calling the Vette "Fantastic Plastic" ever since the C1.
Mikey Jimenez Jul 01, 2012
Why must everyone call it "plastic"? People seriously need to stop watching top gear they take that shit to serious!
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Justin do you realize how much a ZR1 would be if it were made out of carbon fiber?
Craig Lafey Jul 01, 2012
Happy birthday Corvette!
zr1 Jul 01, 2012
Good celebratory vid! Not a lot of C5 images until the end. I like each gen for different reasons. Vettes aren't the high-spinning goodness of..say...some Italian makes.. (itching closer on some parts, yes)...but with all the grunt of a brute, the Vette sure is a ton of fun!
Trent Bourgeois Jul 01, 2012
Yummmmmmmm. I'm satisfied.
Quinn Shannon Jul 01, 2012
I love when it shows the cars morphing from one to another.
John Serely Jul 01, 2012
Your right about the icon part, but other sports cars have great traditions too
Colby Church Jul 01, 2012
Awesome, it really puts a perspective on how long the Vette has been around and through thick and thin. People can say what they want, but this car is an icon and has a tradition that no other sports car can match. Keep it up GM.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Ahh, he makes it look so easy.
Trent Bourgeois Jul 01, 2012
I see it's doing it's work just right.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
It was so hard to live with and too expensive. Beautiful nonetheless. And the start of legend.
Colby Church Jul 01, 2012
Beautiful, I love the C1.
Matty Michaels Jul 01, 2012
I almost cried when I read Paul's and Colby's comments.
Paul Lissona Jul 01, 2012
Yah I like how passionate they were about their cars for sure. I wish people nowadays were more that way.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Well the engineers behind the Vette we're so into the idea. Zora Arkas Duntov was a brilliant engineer and put his blood into the engines of the 56 Vette. Bill Mitchell actually put his own money into the Grand Sport project, even after the ban on factory racing. The Vette succeeded because of those who carried it back to life when GM wanted to pull the plug.
Avery Williams Jul 01, 2012
@Colby Well said.
Tim Preisinger Jul 01, 2012
Back in a time when people tool pride in there work
Colby Church Jul 01, 2012
My, how things have changed. But they had to start somewhere. One thing I love is how passionate the people building the Corvette are. They want to see their car succeed, it gives them pride.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
I'm surprised that there wasn't too many quality issues with the cars, especially when Chevy was trying out new materials.
Paul Lissona Jul 01, 2012
And easier to be rich back then too. I hope the economy starts to get better.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
That must've been a fine day to be a rich American.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Yeah it does, but I can't help but notice your profile pic, is that the Jalopnik rendering?
Lee Gardner Jul 01, 2012
Matt my cousin has a 77 california edition and it's not a stingray
Avery Williams Jul 01, 2012
Speaking of the Corvette Stingray, the new Stingray concept is so amazing and it actually looks like the old one while being futuristic.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
I know they were low on power, and new engineers and designers took over, those people led GM to the "old" GM and quality and performance was a bit low, but even the "Shit" Vettes were pretty quick. I know that first hand.
Matt Greenlee Jul 01, 2012
Stingrays died in 1977-78
Kai Andrew Carlson Jul 01, 2012
And personally these and anything made in the 80's are trash! I laugh at them for buying the sh!t vette. The rest are amazing!
Dylan Bruder Jul 01, 2012
The stingray went on in the c2 and the c3 it was named sting ray in the c2 and stingray one word in the c3
Lee Gardner Jul 01, 2012
The next photo is a stingray they ended in 76 I believe
Lee Gardner Jul 01, 2012
It was a design look just in front of the door there's no "fins" or logo
Angel G. Ortega-Valentin Jul 01, 2012
The C3 is also considered a Stingray...
Lee Gardner Jul 01, 2012
That's not a stingray
Christoffer Wassberg Jul 01, 2012
My brother in laws dad owns a 67 stringray its so badass cherry red and the best part is its all original
Adam Lopinsky Jul 01, 2012
Stingray corvette is best corvette
Colby Church Jul 01, 2012
My uncle's looks like this, very nice. A real head turner.
Matt Greenlee Jul 01, 2012
that is such a good looking car.
Colby Church Jul 01, 2012
I love the C3's aggressive shape and styling. It really stands out in the crowd.
Pedro Corvette Jul 02, 2012
my favorites 96 grand sport and'13 zr1
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Yeah the GS was so badass. But the ZR1 was somethin to behold.
Mikey Jimenez Jul 01, 2012
I loved the Grand Sport.
Ben Norton Jul 01, 2012
Beautiful! I'm so glad I bought my 93 a few months ago
Jordan Jackson Jul 01, 2012
This is where they got boring...
Colby Church Jul 01, 2012
Not my favorite Corvette, but I respect the C4. It looks better than most cars and helped pave the way for the C5 and C6 designs, which are beautiful evolutions.
Doug Stewart Jul 02, 2012
Like the body color black so sweet .
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
I really love these cars. Want a 327 with a 4 speed manual and painted in Tuxedo Black. That's my dream car.
Peter Mark Gacek Jul 01, 2012
I would take one of these over a 427 C2 any day.
Audi Tech Jul 01, 2012
That is and always will be the best vette ever
Colby Church Jul 01, 2012
Wow, I love the 63, that split window and long sloping back is gorgeous. This car looks amazing in yellow. :)
Tim Preisinger Jul 01, 2012
My favorite one. If I ever run into money I would be sure to buy one someday
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Yeah it is a '57 I believe, but those '61 produce about 350 hp from a 327 if I'm not mistaken.
Ghee Buttersnaps Jul 01, 2012
@Abraham I believe this is a '56 - '57. If its a '57 with fuel injection, then it does make more horsepower than displacement
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
Those '61 cars are really quick and their V8s were so damn powerful. Actually putting out more power than displacement.
Devin Babyn Jul 01, 2012
Mmm there's the one I want. Such a beautiful little car
Brian Snyder Jul 03, 2012
@patrick, "too much consumerism", WHAT??? Lol, I'm guessing you meant something else. Yes this design has been around long enough to change. As a dedicated Vette fan, it's absolutely time. My first Vette was a C4, then a C5. Didn't like the C6
Doug Stewart Jul 02, 2012
Like new corvette 2013 so great .
Abraham Mendoza Jul 02, 2012
@Logan, which is why the C7 is coming out by 2013...
Victor A. Frederick Jul 02, 2012
Idc what vette I get, it's still a vette. It a classic icon. If you say this is ugly, I really don't want to know what you consider good looking. Vettes are proven champs no matter what.
Logan LeMonnier Jul 02, 2012
Needs an update seriously
Ashley Lopez Jul 01, 2012
In my opinion the C6 is the best generation of the corvette.
Luis Erick Marcano Schmilinsky Jul 01, 2012
Ford keeps changing designs to try to catch new eyes, the corvette has stayed like this for a while because more people know the Vette than a wimpy mustang.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
I think it looks damn good, but 8 years is long when it comes to generations. And the reason why Ford Changes the Mustang a lot is because they know the Customers are young and trendy, so they know that they must change it up a bit.
Brady Fereday Jul 01, 2012
You guys are blind I think this gen looks beautiful
Paul Lissona Jul 01, 2012
I'm ok with same designs for eight years even. People are very unrealistic with this, if a car looks good why change it.
Logan LeMonnier Jul 01, 2012
This generation of corvette is where it gets boring. Ford changes the mustang a lot but the corvette just keeps the same shape. It needs a good overhaul bad.
William Downs Jul 01, 2012
damn didnt even realize it was around that long.... thanks patrick.. its just seemed like it was here and replaced so fast
Abraham Mendoza Jul 01, 2012
I really like this car and it accomplished so much in its span. But the C7 will be so much better.
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
As the electronic, food, etc world. It would cost a crap load of money to only have a car run for a few years. Have to cover R&D and production costs.
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
The C5 ran from 97 to 2004. That's eight years. The C6 came out in 05 and is in it's 8th year. It sells extremely well. You guys just expect too much, a lot like out society today. Too much consumerism. The automotive world doesn't move as quickly
Christopher Lawrence Reber Jul 01, 2012
I HATE the vents on the grand sport. Looks like a fish
Scott Westphall Jul 01, 2012
The C6 is my fav design after the 63 split window. I think this car still looks great, especially with the subtle aggressive touches that the Z06 has. That car has an attitude. And it backs it up nicely.
William Downs Jul 01, 2012
yea but the C6 has been around for along time, they replaced the c5 body within a couple years of its launch, and thats the best lookin one in my opinion, i cant wait to see what they do with the c7.. lets go chevy give us a tease
Patrick Schalk Jul 01, 2012
Can't expect a company to redesign a car like that every year. Every car goes through at six years or so of the same body.
Brian Snyder Jul 01, 2012
A redesign is needed ASAP, especially with the new Viper coming out. Best American rivalry: Viper and Vette
Matt Piccolo Jul 01, 2012
IMO the c6 didn't age well, my old nabour got one right when it came out and I thought it was an amazing car! A year and a half later, it was just another car, its just looked boring... I can respect the car performance wise though
Colby Church Jul 01, 2012
I'm in love with the C6. It looks absolutely fantastic. The lines of the car are very pleasing to my eyes. Haha
