Did it go straight to Saudi Arabia or did it stop in Europe and you had to arrange shipemnt from Europe to Saudi Arabia ? I have talked to members who live in Australia and Corvettes are worth some real money once they cross the ocean. For me it so easy to get parts for my old car but you guys it must require allot of patience ! I get bent out of shape sometimes waiting for stuff in the mail. I can't imagine having to wait 2 weeks for a light bulb ! I suppose it helps to have deep pockets and then Fedex can expedite the shipment. There must be few and far between C4's in Saudi Arabia. Do you ever see C2's or C3's ? I went to the monthly Corvette meeting today in Scottsdale and saw 40+ Corvette's all years. Watching your video made me think how I take Corvettes for granted.
We have chevy dealer here that brings Corvettes, we have all kind of cars that you might think of.
Yes , some guys buy cars from USA, maybe because a good deal or a clean car that he can't find here in saudi, they ship it overseas directly to saudi.
Corvettes here cost almost the same in the states. But in the US there are more options when buying a used car. Color, condition of the car, since they were made in the US.
There are hundreds of C6s, Little C5s , rare C4s and C3s. C2&C1 are the rarest.
We have our own corvette club too. About 45+ Corvette members. This is only in my town which is located in the eastern region of saudi arabia. I'm not talking about the whole country.
Here are few pics just in case you can't imagine the place here
There is also ferrari and lambo dealers

The same track I raced it , 250 miles from home. There is a nearby track in bahrain we can reach in an hour. It's a lot better than this one.
