Which one would you want. I just watched some special on the new Evo Viii and the C6. The Evo is one quick monster and competes with slight modification with some of the quicker lambo's and porsches out there :eek: . Then again, i heard that the C6 could be considered a supercar for what it puts out. So which one would you want, if you had to shell out the $$$

Dont get me wrong the EVO is an awesome car but I have a lot of respect for the tried and true pushrod motor in the C6, and I really like the redesign they got. The EVO looks like a boy racer go-cart while the Vette resembles a supercar. I also like the fact that the C6 makes its power without a blower or a turbo.

Now what if you put the C6 ZO6 against the Evo? There's no comparison there.

i really hate both cars equal but the vette gets my vote for the simple fact of rwd and the fun factor.it is really hard to blow a corner sideways with awd so it would have to be the vette if i had to by only one of them. other then that if i won either one they would be instant trade in material.

I buy amercian, end of story. Our economy is hurting bad enough from so many people switching to foreign cars. I am going to go out on a limb here and say, "You don't see anyone from japan driving around in Corvettes or chevrolets at all for that matter."

Our country should be the same way, but thats my opinion.

Man I go sideways in corners all the time, but the grip that's there is so different, it never feels like it will snap oversteer when I bring it back around.

I hate Vettes. I'm going with the EVO, even though I agree with the WRX statement above..

Amen. I'm not a real Vette lover, but if forced to choose, I would always choose a domestic. (even if it were between the Evo and an Escort) Although I live in Canada, I work for the Ford Motor Company, and watching thousands of American/Canadian jobs go overseas or to Mexico because of unfair trade policies in North American and Asian auto markets pisses me off!:mad:

If I had to I guess it would be the Vette. I agree whole-heartedly about buying American. Of course if I were to win one in a contest I would take the money value over the vehicle itself. With that kind of cash I could have the world's fastest SC, and make either of those cars choke on my exhaust as I dust 'em.

Evo motors DO NOT crank walk. Crank walk issues with the 4g63 were limited to 7 bolt motors mostly in the 2nd generation DSM.

I am not a vette lover at all, but I am an American, and will never own anything but an American car. I wish everybody had the same views and we would not be in the shape we are in now if they did.

And so???? This isn't news but I still buy domestic.. even thought I know these others are built in the U.S. and employ a bunch of folks. Why? I'm not sure but it just feels right to me. I also spent 7 years in the military defending this counrty from 65-72 so go figure..........Dan

Where do all of the profits go, though? Manufacturing and assembly are only mediums.

Just to add to that..If the Toyota (or whatever import) plant wasnt there because noone bought Toyotas (or whatever).....Then more american cars would be sold...Thus shifting the jobs in that direction

My Dad had the same views until he found out in 02 that his new Avalanche was built in mexico "Chevy...it runs deep" yea deep into mexico:rolleyes: I buy a car based on the car, not who built it unless they are known to build bad cars. If martians came and offered a better-to-me product guess what I would buy. Im all for buying American, but Im not for spending my money on this when that suits me better.

You can call me a sell out all you want:( but I tell you this, Ill stay true to myself till the day I die:D

I find it hard to belive that if all of the people making similar statments hit the lotto for 300mil take home that the ONLY cars in their driveway would be American made. Would your house only contain bricks lumber and nails from the USA. I bet half of you people have never been to your local produce stand or a city hall meeting, you cant stay true to your local community but you look down your nose at Americans that buy foriegn, kinda hippocritical if you ask me.

Back to the tread point, Id take the C6 all day. Looks better , sounds better, plays better. And you wont have people comming up asking for rides all over the place in a two seater, just keep your girl or child with you and theres no room:cool:

Dad and Grandad worked for FMC for years. Dad got layed off in the 70's simply because his job was putting steering columns in LTD's, and the big car market was dead. Grandpa was high up enough were he kept his job and eventually retired from ford. It's why we are a ford family.
Never Cared for Corvettes, however they could eat literally everything I have alive :eek:
I was the whole "buy american" thing untill I started modding a friends little "rice Burner". It's an '89 240sx. Ka24e single cam. We turbo'd it, and the stock 200,000 mile motor has been running on 6 psi for 5 months now. And taken the abuse of a 17 year old driver.
We are building up another motor for it. It's a ka24de dual cam motor. We got rods and pistons, main studs, and are currently building up the top end and trying to figure out fuel management. But I gotta admit, for the 4 cylinders it has when we are done each one is going to be making around 105 hp. I just can't beleive that. over 400 hp on a 2.4 liter motor. It's crazy.
