Am glad to have found this site and look forward to getting a C7 although I am still in love with my 2009 ZHZ. Have had Corvettes since about 1979 when I finally got tired of the maintenance costs of my Porsche turbo. I had both a manual and automatic 1998 Pace Car, then a 98 coupe, 99 coupe and now my 2009 ZHZ of which only 375 were made. Although I am already 83 and time is running out I will always have a corvette.

Am happy to post a couple pictures of my ZHZ. It is such a joy to drive. I have hard wired the dual exahust so I can control it from the console. Love the sound but it does get loud climbing hills when on a long trip.

c5a - just curious; I'm ordering a c7 when my number comes up; definitely thought I'd order it with it a 7 speed stick, but now I'm reading about the paddle shifter and MAY decide on it instead. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Love your '09, btw.

Auto vs. 7 speed

I'm in the same boat. I want my wife to enjoy it, but she prefers auto. Do you think the remote start will be exclusive to the auto?

In 1998 I bought a new manual Pace Car but after 3 years sold it and bought a '98 Pace Car auto and much prefer the auto. Maybe it is a sign of old age and less work?? I find I rarely even use the paddles on my '09 ZHZ auto except for compression down hills. The auto does such a good job I really can't improve on it.
