    that's a bizarre comment -z06 gets 20/25 mpg and my strad gets 11.5, just like my Yukon Xtra Large



    i was hinting more towards the rising gaz prices than an increase in fuel consumption beween the two cars.. And for the z06s mpg, if you reach that mpg, you just ain't using it right

    For some people it might be heaven to get an everyday-free-lunch card from McDonalds. For me this would be hell...

    I rather save up for a decent meal than that. From outside both types are food and by numbers and looks themselves you won't find any difference.

    But as you said, chose for yourself!

    Re: I'm gonna catch hell for this

    Here is that pic of the 430 that was caught in the fire (supposedly) at Maranello.
    It was posted here at rennteam last year.
    Notice front end is different from the 430 that was released, but kind of similar to the Z06. Must be some guys on this board from GM - stole its styling cues for the Z06.

    Come on now, we are not talking about a Yugo here. We are talking about a car with some amazing performance figures that may well exceed the F430, or at the very least are equal to the 430. I agree with you that a Mac lunch may not be your gastronimic meal of choice, but I think you suffer from a case of extreme hyperbole.
