(Ok, I've been a little forgetful about QODs! Here's one for you...)

If you had unlimited money and could buy any Corvette generation, (or restore one you already own), which would it be and why?

Well, if One was the option, it would be a 65' coupe in maroon. Like the body accents and ingress egress.

The optimum phrase is "unlimited money"...

C1 - a '61 or '62 with a 4 speed tranny

C2 - a split window coupe with a 4 speed tranny

C3 - a '70 LT-1 convertible (modified with a 5 or 6 speed tranny)

C4 - a '90 ZR-1 and a '96 Collectors Edition with a 6 speed tranny

C5 - a Z06

C6 - an '09 GT1 Championship Edition Z06 in BLACK

The jury is still out on the C7s, styling-wise for me anyway. 

And I understand why they didn't put a manual tranny in the C8s but that's a deal breaker for me.

Definitely any C2. To be specific a ‘63 split window or a ‘67 427 either coupe or convertible. 
A ‘90 ZR-1, first year and it has a lot of uniqueness to it. 
Or a C6 ZR1. That car oozes all over especially the clear hood😋

My favorite generation is the C3.  The coupe in particular. These cars have so much style and function.  For example the hide a way headlights improved aerodynamics.  The fender side louvers helped remove heat from inter the hood.  The body lines continue from front to rear along the top of the car.  

Sure wish they made them that way again.  Designers today took away all the styling that made the Corvette what it was thru the years.  Now it seems we change things to appeal to other countries and forgot about how American style stood for.  

Save the wave and safe travels.

I have a C4, and a C5, and a C7. I really like my C4 and C5, but I LOVE my C7! The technology in that car is fantastic! If I were going to “upgrade,” I wouldn’t stop at the C6, I’d find a nice C7 and enjoy it.

I’m right there with you on the C2 and C3! I didn’t like the C7 at first, but now I have one, and it’s my favorite Corvette (I have 3).
Have you driven a C8? I think you’ll find it an enjoyable drive, even with no “real” standard.
