Well, after looking at the options, including some absolutely gorgeous GXPs, C5 'Vettes (I know, I know), I think I've settled on just fixing the few remaining issues with the current car.
At the very least, it's a known quantity. Spending several thousand dollars to replace a toy with a slightly-better (maybe) version of said toy isn't the most responsible thing to do, though it would be fun.
So, instead: off it'll go to the body shop after Nationals to fix a few paint issues, the windshield surround (still trashed from the hail storm) and the bumper. Taking it to a guy on Monday to get the AC fixed since my efforts have proved futile. Then, there's a bad O2 sensor and some interior cleanup.
With all of that fixed, the car should be in tip-top shape. Might grab an RPM roll bar while I'm at it so I can finally get back into HPDEs, which was really the point of this thing when I bought it in 2014.
Sigh. Being a quasi-responsible adult isn't always fun.
Also, I went and drove a GXP at a dealer down the street, and my car is faster. The turbo lag is annoying, but not the sort of annoying that's worth $10k. And, this one is paid for. In it's current state, I doubt I'd be able to sell it for much.
