i am going to sell my 53 MG TD and my 06 mustang vert DD and buy a a C5 or C6 vert,

i thought originally i was only in the market for a c5 vert but as i am looking the prices for low miles late model c5s and the first several years of the c6 are not that much different.

i am looking for a go slow car and easy commuting car to work, my trip computer says my average MPH on my commute is 21.....and there is a half mile stretch where i can go 45....

i want an automatic and a soft ride is not a problem for me,In the C5 i also want the HUD and the 1SC package, memory seats, dual ac, sport seats etc. standard suspension is fine.

so what are the strengths and weakness of the two?
thanks bob

Right here
Don't know the particulars of each car but it sounds like a good choice either way. I would probably get the first one that had the options you are looking for.

yes i agree, i am really torn between the Prowler and the C5/6, seems like the corvette will be more user friendly on a regular basis and less expensive to buy and maintain.
