Off-topic, but yes, you'll be able to pick up a c7 for a song. The local dealer is listing $10-12k off all models, so I expect you could get that even higher, maybe $15k? That's a lot of car for mid $40's (or mid $50's for a Z51, which is a must-have option in my mind). They all come with a removable hardtop that fits in the trunk, so you get the convertible experience without the headaches. I love my ZR-1 for that reason--sunshine when you want it, normal car when you don't.The Corvette is getting rid of the manual transmission? I actually like the current Corvette (granted, I've not driven it). I have a GTI now (manual of course) and I"m getting an itch to get something new and was thinking Fiat 124 Spider. But that car isn't very usable in the winter being a convertible. Maybe one of the 2019 base model Corvettes with a stick shift will go on the list.*
*Corvette is probably a poorer choice for winter, but who cares, it's a Vette!
Good grief. I loved my LS auto. And yes I am an Alfa guy.I do wonder if the sales have slumped because of the ridiculous automatic only thing. You're not an Alfisti/a if you accept that, and yeah I know they are hell bent on dropping the old faithful buyers and creating a new market ... but the easiest way to do that would have been to close the doors and just sell Toyotas.
Even my uncle who is into Holden and HSV only bought an automatic ute because they are not making any more and it was only one he could purchase, and he wanted the last ever v8 ute. Personally I'd have kept the previous manual one ...
