    yea everyone has v6s. I hardly see GTs, mach 1s and cobras. So NO its not compared to mustangs, because a v6 isnt considered a stang...

    yea and all the mustangs that actually matter are getting sold for vettes. you cant compare a car that can be sold to all types of people, to a car that can only be sold to a higher class of person. thats like comparing the sales of a bugatti to a honda. :rollseyes

    You have GOT to be kidding me. The only car that you don't see a ton of in that group is the Terminator. Vettes or any kind of mustang, none of them are rare around here.

    OP, nice car. What kind of wheels are those and what are their sizes? Looks sharp.

    you prove no point? Just because you see them in your area doesnt mean you will in another area? In the past year i have only seen 3 terminators and 1 99 cobra, occasionally like once a week i see a new edge GT but thats about it. I see vettes EVERY DAMN HOUR.

    If the Mustang was the better car you would see more of them....

    There is a reason why you are seeing more Vette's :idea:

    Ok, so we have to base what makes a car "rare" based off your experiences and where you live?? Since you never see termi's and GT's, that makes them rare.

    I hope you realize the inherent flaw in your logic.

    Edit: Just an FYI, there were 78,448 GT's produced in 2006 as compared to 87,314 V6 Mustangs. That is nearly a 1:1 ratio. BTW, I am not saying C6's are rare by any means, just that GT's, Mach's, and Cobras aren't as rare as some might think.

    Not just him, I'll have to say the same thing. Whether it be C4's, C5's with old guys in them or C6's with old guys and the younger gen. in them. they are everywhere.

    haha, you guys are funny. anyways, the wheels are the chrome ruff racing r281's, 19" in front and 20" in the rear.

    as far as comparing the two cars goes, they both have their pros and cons. they both have things that are great and also things that make me not so happy, but so far the corvette seems to have less of the latter. that could definitely change over time though. oh well, i just decided that i wanted to get something different for a change since i've never owned a chevy before.
