I don't want to get into a pissing match but they are both sports cars that are too expensive to insure and maintain for my taste. There are several online forsale in the 20's and you don't have to go far to find um. The biggest difference is that a vette will only depreciate only so far before it starts rising again...something that is few and far between for any import.

You are very uninformed, but that's okay, enjoy your bliss.

Its not worth my time. Your ego is too large for me to bother trying. Not trying to be a dick, just stating an observation. (some may say the same about me, and that's fine).

Ego? Are you serious? Remember paco, you own the Lotus that you insist on bringing up every other thread on here.

I will agree that C5 Z's are relatively cheap nowadays, but I would still argue categorizing a Corvette and Mustang into the same "group". Both are sports cars, yes. But both have very different looks, performance characteristics, price tag, and costs for aftermarket modification. There are far more Mustangs on the road than there are Corvettes, therefore aftermarket parts for Mustangs are relatively cheaper which of course makes it cheaper to go faster. Straight line, you may need a Cobra to be equal to a C5 Z, but I would be willing to bet the weight difference and high center of gravity in a Mustang works against it in an Autocross. Categorizing Corvettes with Mustangs, to me, is no different than categorizing Lotus with Miata. But I bet someone would say ".....but that's different."

Last I checked, Mustangs had no bragging rights on the NurburgRing.....and I am curious to see just how well the Lotus did.....

Regardless, its an enthusiast thing. There will always be someone faster.

O' contrare my friend-- I think you DID learn something today. That material possesions don't mean d@#k squat when it comes to personality and what we call "brotherhood".
