OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: Diamond in the Rough at a Ford Dealership

2001 C5 Corvette Z06 Home

New Corvette Forum member “USMC_C5Z06” otherwise known as Nick from Naples, Florida, just picked up this fireball of fury. It’s a Torch Red 2001 Corvette Z06 with 22,000 miles on the clock. Some of the mods include a K&N AirCharger cold-air intake, Borla Stinger dual four-inch exhaust, ACI chin spoiler and black C6 Corvette wheels.

Ironically, Nick stumbled across this C5 at a Ford dealership. How’s that for a diamond in the rough?

Here’s what the forum had to say about Nick’s Ford-dealer find:

Brandons72vette: You clearly bought the best car they had! 

sincitycamaro: Awesome car. Don’t be surprised when the idiot who traded her in for the new Mustang comes knocking at your door asking for it back.

Head to the forum to give Nick your congratulations.
