C5 trunk space ISNT that bad. z06 has that diff hatch than the normal coupe glass…idk if that gives it more or less room. but i drove the Z that is lower than a C5 and with good snow tires on, it was fine…i imagine a c5 w traction control will be FINE.
Only thing ive heard that can be an issue is that the body is fiberglass…if its frozen and you hit something…its F’ed and cracked up…idk…id do it.
Cargo space isn’t really an issue since my wife would still be DD’ing something capable of towing the boat, so most likely a mid to large sized SUV. For my M-F commute life the most I ever haul is a laptop bag.
And I drive 2 miles to work. On really bad days my wife goes right by my office on the way to her work so we can always carpool.
my dad has a c5 and we fit 2 golf bags and a decent amount of other misc. crap. all the time…while not HUGE… it DEF holds more than youd think like most hatches do…but like i said z06 has that weird rear window/hatch…idk how much space you gain or lose
Z06 Ground clearance is lower and it weighs less which would be two negatives for winter driving. If you run snows on all corners I would think it would handle the snow fine though just like any other car.
Big downside (for me) would be the ground clearance, where I live there’s almost always some snow on the road, and big drifts. You’re also gonna have some fat (read: riding on the snow instead of through it) and expensive rubber on that, too. But the chassis would be silly fun, and the handling should keep you out of trouble.
Around here there is rarely that much on the roads. As for the wide snows I’d do what I do now and get a set of aftermarket rims to keep the snows on. Doing that I assume I’d be able to go quite a bit narrower if I spent some time figuring out the right offsets to make everything clear.
