I was told that car was build on the c6 chassis.. I can see that. They were very similar. Naturally in the vette, you sit lower, i have the stick shift and I think about 80 more horsepower, so naturally it brings back the fun.

A bit tighter then the c6 and more comfortable then the c4. I actually prefer the c5 to the c6, but mostly due to seat size. .. seats are much better in the c6, just smaller cockpit.

I'm 6'4 and have had a 67 and 74 ... both of which had terrible seats that were unbearable after about four hrs on the road. The 92 was a major improvement .. seats good ... comfortable. My C5 convertible has better seats and more room ... I drove from VA to FL in a single day. Like sitting in a recliner at home. I have never liked the shortened back, fixed headlights, or trunk space in the C6. I went off to my Chevy dealer to buy the C7. Small trunk (convert) and knees hit the dash ... I have 4" between my knees and the dash on the C5. I would forget $24,000 (sounds high) and get a 2005 C5
