    47,000 bucks is getting up there for a car from 1996.

    Looks tons better than the first C4s that came out though.

    Still love these old motor weeks.

    Don’t look up the price of a new 1995 ZR1. This car ran door to door with it for far less. I’ve been a Grand Sport fan since the original C2.

    The C6Z should have been called a Grand Sport if they were following the original mantra as should the C5Z. Z06 was nothing more than an RPO package only available with a 327 with a larger fuel tank and better suspension.

    I'd love to have one of these or it's brother the silver CE. But they are one of the most uncomfortable cars I ever sat in.

    But which one would you rather have? I'll take the quad cammed one all day.

    90s. ZR1s were trapping 110+ and getting into the 12s.

    Another fun to watch Retro video. Every one, for me, brings back great memories. They also show how far automotive technology has gone. I wonder if some day we'll see Retro videos on GT-500s, Hellcats, C6/C7/C8 videos and long to the re-birth of ICE engines as we finish charging our EVs before the morning commute to work. LOL.
