    Ok, bit of a dilemma. Should I trade the G in?

    Was looking for something a little bit faster, and found a C5 Vette in my range.

    Then I started thinking about gas, the drivetrain (RWD is main reason I am thinking of trading, snow is here :( )

    Started looking a little bit more, and found a SRT-4 in my range. I know this is a personal decision, just wanted more input on it. The G is stock minus the basic appearance things.

    personally i think that i wouldnt trade for the C5. unless you have another daily driver for the winter months.... But its all up to what you like i guess. Modding out a C5 would be sick as hell. and i know that performance parts for a G is crazy expensive. hence why i never bought one lol

    You can pull 30 mpg in the vette unless it is insanely cammed or the guy doesn't know how to drive

    the only things that would turn me off is the fact that its a '98 and the gas mileage. but like he said, you can pull pretty good gas mileage out of an ls1

    I kinda did a 'WTF' when I saw the mileage he posted for it. Their weight and the fact the LS1 is a fairly efficent engine makes the 'Vette get such decent mileage, 12mpg is something I'd expect from a Gen I small block in a Chevelle.
