JESUS CHRIST!!!!!!!!!!!! STOP CALLING IT NOS!!!!! NOS originally stood for new old stock until 'the fast and the furious' came around. PLEASE call it nitrous or N20. here, go to this link;

What are we marking cars on here, still all a bit wooly, if you want a perfomance car then thats one thing, if you want a car that goes quickly and you can take the wife shopping in then thats another. For $75k you could get some seroiusly quick trackday cars that would trounce the road cars, but then take something like the ariel atom for example and you have a storage large enough to carry ummm 2 ipod's.

The Chevrolet Z06 will probably be the best sports car under $75k.

The Corvette Z06 is a high performance sports car. I don't know why you question whether a Corvette is a sports car or not. It performs on par or better than other sports cars in its class in ALL performance categories. The Corvette isn't just a straight line car.

since when is a corrvete small! from the reviews in the uk which i have read they dont seem very impressed, i would have to agree that its an improvement on the C5, but how much well not very, for less money you can have a EVO 340 which will trounce the C6 especally around bends and a atom out perfoms a superbike.

Not to mention that a Corvette is an American car. Who would rather drive an American car when they could get a car from Japan or Germany?

My advice to this guy is, to go and get a used Ferrari or Lamborghini on ebaymotors.
