Today marks the 10th anniversary of the General Motors C5 Corvette.


Today marks the 10th Anniversary of the debut of the 5th generation of the Object of our AFFECTION! Sounds like a reason to party to me!


HBD C5s!

:birth To the C5 Model Run!

The C5 was the first major re-design of the Corvette in (at that time) 14 years, and introduced a whole lot of new eye-appeal styling and pin-your-ears-back performance. I'm proud to own one!

Thank you, Chevrolet!

A very significant advance over the C4s, and with my titanium hip lots easier to get in/out than my C4s.

The body shape/surfacing of the C5 is very sophisticated, flowing and elegant. The GM designers sure nailed the production design compared to most of the earlier C5 concept proposals I've seen. Happy Birthday to an excellent high performance sports car! DFO :D

Great photos

Jane Ann,

You sure do take some great pictures.

I enjoy looking at every one of them. Somehow you capture the beauty and feel of the Vette.

Keep up the good work.

Jeff

Thanks for the kudos, Jeff... but I can't take credit for ALL of the gems I post. MsSchroder has taken some of the photos I post, and the photo featured here was a GM publicity shot I found.

I will take credit for knowing art when I find it... and sharing it with others here.

My C5 turned 9 on 10/3/06 (I know this because I had to take the door panel off and the date was written in big, proud yellow numbers).

It is aging VERY gracefully! It doesn't look a day over 30,000 miles!! :)

With the introduction of the C6's does this mean we're oldies but goodies?

I'm enjoying my C5. It turns 4 years old next month. I believe it's just now hitting it's stride. Most of the clunky stiffness in my six speed shifter and transmission have seemed to improve with the miles. Either that or I'm just getting used to it. A little time and wear has made an appreciable difference.

Happy Birthday C5!

Geeeez wouldn't it great if my 2004 coupe was the last C5 on the production line.

You know like the $660,000 last 1967 Stingray

No such luck.....If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all......If it was raining soup .....I'd be standing there with a fork;LOL

I've told many people that my '04 C5 is head-and-shoulders above the '86 I used to own. Wow...this car just keeps getting better. I wonder what it will be like in another ten years?
