I think this is the 4th Corvette on WD. To be honest, my favorite was the 1964 C2 that Mike and Edd worked on in Season 10 – beautiful car and worth so much more now. This episode’s C5 doesn’t quite do it for me, and I think Ant has a point early on when he questions Mike’s choice of car. Sure, the final product is a lot of horsepower for the money, but I just don’t see the C5 being as collectible one day as the C2 or the chrome bumper C3.
