I'd go XX if I could end up lipstick instead of butch, but I'd be ok with rolling around in the barbie :stig: car with the :jalepenis: intact anyway.

If it wasn’t pink I’d buy it and we could arrange some sort of share system ... that’s just :disgust:
Yeah, whomever picked that color wasn't concerned about resale. I wouldn't buy that for more than $15K since a good paint job would be another $15k or more.
I'd like it more if it had a black interior.

Dafurk, had no idea these could be had for mid 20s.
Had a look at C5 Z06s the other day but why bother when the C6 is just a few grand more?

Dang it, may fall for a Brubette next year.

Well, a C5Z with that high of mileage could be had sub $15K. My C5 is pretty nice and it could be had for $10-11K. So there's still a huge delta, but either one is an epic value, C6Z is far more car and a crazy bargain at that price. I wouldn't be afraid of a higher mileage Corvette unless you want a C&C cream puff. If I bought one, I'd o for something like the above with 100k miles and the valve train job done. You will scrape the front anyway, so no point in getting one that isn't pre scraped.

A banged up C6Z with the valves done would be a fantastic buy, IMO.

I'm :gaydance: and won't consider a C6Z because the top doesn't come off.

This kept me out of a C6Z and in a GS. I only got the C7Z because they made the roof removable.

I don't take the targa off much, but it is a nice perk for sure.

In some ways I actually prefer the C6GS to the Z, but it's more expensive in many cases, which gives me pause. I'm not about paying mid-high 30s for a C6 when I could go buy a brand new C7 for low 40s.

The C7 is a great car if it checks all the boxes for you, especially if you can get one for a great deal with the C8 coming.

Oh wow, I thought I was alone.

I had the top off my C5 constantly...I went months long with it off (parked in the garage).

TBH, I think the perfect used vette is a C6GS :manuel: LS3 is epic. Dry sump. Wide body look. Top comes off. Couldn't ask for anything more...they're just still a tad on the pricey side being a 2010+ only thing.

Yeah, and Mike Furman has them at 18% off + an additional $2,000 rebate.

Deals are out there.

Boardwalk, where I bought mine has them at 25% off: https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums/c7 ... 5-off.html

If I went back in time, I probably would have done an LS3 swap instead of all the head/cam work I did on my car. Cost probably would have been similar.
