Yeah, I love the seats in my car, but I'd love even more getting a base C7.
Maybe I will, but I'll have to relinquish the idea that a Corvette must
a manual. The other half won't put with one, and we need two cars that
either of us can drive. At least the '93 is all mine, until they read the
Save the wave.

...I haven't owned anything with an automatic trans since high school.
Both my C4 and my C6 Z06 are manuals, and I wouldn't allow it any other
way...but the seats in my C4 are HUGELY better than the ones in my C6.
I also miss being able to cinch my belts down and lock 'em in.
when i was autocrossing, i used a home-made belt cinch. basically, 2
pieces of Al 1"x5", with a hole in each end. a bolt/wingnut on each side
made it be a clamp.
move the seat backwards all the way, cinch the belt tight, add the
clamp, and move the seat forwards. it worked almsot as well as a 4 point
Not really, wait until the C7 is out for awhile. There was no drop in the C6
prices, that's just Vito's wishful thinking, if he thinks at all. When the
C6 came out the C5 prices fell badly but rebounded about 4 months later. I
have no idea why and would guess it was just an auto market adjustment at
the time and had nothing to do with Corvette in particular.
For the difference in prices and there were two Corvettes for sale of equal
quality I'd take the C5 over the C6 any day of the week. Even after more
than 8 years driving the C6 I like the C5 more, just a fun car.
By the way the seats are just a different design, eye catching but same low
level material. The tail light design (if that is it) and the hatch along
with other poor design cues may keep me in the C6 for a long time. Right now
the only reason I would get one is to get out of the 6-speed, sometimes my
knees maker more noise that a missed 3rd gear.
