Hi
I have a chance to buy a Torch Red 2001 C5 Vert with 7200 miles for $26,500.00. The car is loaded, with Premium sound, Heads Up display, Chrome wheels and more. It has the original tires.

Way too much. The items you mentioned are standard on most vettes. New tires are going to cost you big $$$. Twelve year old tires may not be too safe (even with good tread) to drive on at highway speeds. Haven't seen the car but I'm thinking $22,000 at best, really good tires could run upwards of an extra $1000 or more. Add tax, title, ins..... Keep looking. The right one will come along at a much better price! There's some nice ones here on the CF.

The tires alone will add a $1,000 to the price, you might want to look around a little more.

It depends. Is it an auto or a manual? Standard suspension, selective ride or Z51? Interior or top color? All of which would determine its rarity for those finicky vette people.
This would be like asking is $100k too much for a 67 coupe without knowing its options.

Wasn't yours a "Z", with tires that were not original 10 year old tires?
Congrats on the sale... Did you get a new one?
