For a weekend FUN car...I'd take the Vette over the Z. First mod would be exhaust. I think the Z sounds cool, but not as cool as an open V8.

For a track car... I'd get whichever one I got a better deal on and was well taken care of. Because honestly, They are both very capable cars in the right hands.


Then again... That's just me.

On the internet... Everyone is an expert.

And now...The dancing Banana:

My current boo above, sometimes you can get them under 50K-ish miles for
less than 10k. The one above (a 1999 WS6) I got at a dealership for 9.5K
with 55K on it. Another one had 30k on it I got for 12K and another for 10K.
They are regularly on ls1tech.com for half that with double the miles.


Long tube headers usually $300 ish will get you double digit HP gains with a
tune.

You only need a single Cam on them, no dual over head cam stuff to deal
with so that's cheaper too.

Another option, 2005-2006 GTO. I had one, they have 400 HP, manual and
have really come down in price. The car was fun, kind of had a sleeper thing
going on and has an interior similar to older BMW's of the era. I know I
probably look like a GM fan boy and I sort of am but I am for most fun per $
spent or HP. I would also consider a 2003-04 Cobra but I don't have enough
cash sitting around and don't want to finance another old car.


2001 Kawasaki ZX6R: bone stock.

While an f body is nice and relatively cheap they have weak brakes for their size, and their rear ends suck and and are made of glass..

GTO isn't wise either as parts availability is an issue and if you wreck it, you could be totalled or waiting a long tune for repair.

Never heard of someone break a 10 bolt on regular tire.

Most are piss poor launches and stick cars that are poorly driven on way to sticky a tire.

They do have some limited slip issues but they are work around.

Anyone thinking they are buying a sports car for 10K is under a false presumption already.
