    Let me scroll back to where me and "the other guy" (Fastbird) conversation was so may it clarifies what Im trying to say...

    And yes I was disagreeing with him when he said that 40 to 80k was the affordable price range and I really dont see anything out of the 50 or 60 range being "affordable" to the average blue collar person.... hence where the NON base cars came into play.

    I went on to explain that I WAS looking at it from MY PERSPECTIVE that if i was buying a c7... i wouldnt buy a base... so for me it is the 100k zo6... or if i had a base, it would have been built beyond the average blue collar price range.


    Hope that helps.

    I totally get that. The hot models have been out of touch for the blue collar guys for a while. I can agree to that, and that's why my idea of a super car is a used c6z still. One of those is still very expensive to most blue collar guys but now that they are 10 years old, they are more affordable. I would rather have a used higher end model over a new base model, but I hope that gm can kick out a base model built on the same platform as the high end stuff and keep the price low enough on them for the average guys trying to buy theulir dream cars

    I kind of think about it like the v6 camaro and mustang. They are the same chassis, but obviously missing the v8. But the companies rely on strong v6 sales in order to even offer the v8's as an option.

    And for me, I would never buy a v6 version... if for some reason i did end up with one, i would end up sinking so much money into it, i might as well get a zl1... which for a car carrying the name camaro, is way out of most camaro types from back in the day to buy comfortably... u know, mullets amd stuff... lol.
