3: 2004 Commemorative Edition
By 2004, the death knell had rung on the C5 Corvette, and that just about did it for enthusiasts. Although the C6 was a better sports car in just about every way, the C5 was the first modern Corvette that addressed a lot of the problems with the brand. The 2004 Commemorative Edition had a beautiful paint job and several upgrades to it.
The chrome rims were some of the best that GM has ever included on a car, and the interior was decked out in final edition stitching and leather. If you are wanting to collect a C5 Corvette, the 2004 Commemorative Edition may be be the car for you. The unique branding of this model coupled with the beautiful looks is hard for anyone to pass up.
