    Default Need an opinion

    I will be in the market for a C5 Vette. I've kinda narrowed my search to a 2000 - 2003 Coupe (verts are not totally out of the picture though). I know I want a fairly low mileage, one or two (at the most) adult owner car, 6-speed and a solid beige or black interior and most likely a black exterior. No mods to the engine - it has to be stock. I don't mind mild mods/improvements to the exterior. Will my wants vary? I guess that depends if I see a car I can't refuse!

    There's a lot of hoopla being made about the C7 and with that a lot of talk about the prices really coming down on the C6, C5 cars.

    What do you guys think a C5 like I described above (in my pipe-dream wish list) would go for now and what kind of decrease -if any- could I expect on the prices of the C5s when the C7 comes out?

    I know it's a lot of opinion and speculation but your thoughts and ideas will be useful. Thanks all.

    Default C5 Corvette

    The C5 more or less is still on the decline and has not hit the bottom of its pricing. ( just look at the C4's they have hit bottom and some are on the rebound)A very nice blue C5 coupe did not sell at the Mecum auction at Bloomington Gold this weekend, it bid to $15,000. The best bet is to pick out what you want (which you already have) and watch the pricing in all outlets from online, classifieds, auctions and club listings to determine a price you think is fair for the mileage you are looking at. If your not in a hurry you should join a local Corvette Club. A large amount of Corvette owners have multiple ones and if your in the club and patient you might be able to find a deal going into the off season so they do not have to worry about storing it. Just make sure when you get it you put in some fresh gas and use STA-BIL
