      Thank you JB. What a fun memory lane Corvette. If my wife and I had not been then saving for the upcoming C7, especially as we had a C6 Z06 at that time, we would have jumped for this one.

        Thanks JB, never seen that video. I would have to agree a very special car for sure. They are also fairly rare with only 2,552 - 427 Vettes produced.
        With the carbon fiber front end, ZR1 Frame, and 7 Liter Engine (naturally aspirated) really make this a very special vehicle. I absolutely love the one I have and it is awesome to drive and feel that engine bass response. I would suggest anyone looking for a nice collector vehicle pick one up as they are becoming scarce. Here is mine.

            my favorite colors no less torch red!

            the one for sale that I saw has 36k miles and they are asking 61k

            white with the blue convertible top
            and silver stripes

            I prefer your torch red version better but both are awesome

              ​Here's the fully loaded 427 we had back in 2013. Another one of our former Vettes I wish I could have back.....

              This C6 427 actually had a higher MSRP than our 2020 Z51 3LT C8 ! But of course, back then, there were nice discounts too.

                Beautiful convertible and that 427 sounds like a beast.

                  I sold mine a couple of years was a sad day. WONDERFUL CAR! I preferred it over my C7s, and it was not until my C8 that I found a modern Corvette that I enjoyed more.
                  '64 Silver Grey Coupe (custom paint)- still our favorite
                  '13 White/Blue Diamond 427 60th roadster - favorite late model
                  Several others including two C7's

                  '20... Zeus Bronze Coupe, 2LT, GT2 seats, Natural two tone, Body color accents, Pewter wheels- 10/1/20😀 GAME CHANGER

                    Greatest: GM's Range Of LS V8s

                    It's no secret that GM's range of LS engines are some of the best V8 engines ever produced, and they're also some of the few naturally-aspirated engines that'll last you a lifetime. But one LS engine stands out from the rest, the LS7.

                    Found in the C6 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and the fifth-generation Camaro Z/28, not only was the LS7 a great-sounding and tried-and-tested reliable muscle car engine, but it remains one of the most powerful naturally aspirated engines in existence. With a displacement of 423 cubic inches (7.0 liters), the LS7 had 505 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. In the real world, this was enough to give the C6 Z06 enough strength to muster past 195 mph.
