Default How many C5's were made?

That is about 32K a year if you include '97 as a full year of productions. That doesn't seem like a lot.

Good, now that we have that number we need to figure out how many are still on the road for every year since '97. When we graph that it'll give the rest of us an idea on how long it will take for our cars to become rare with skyrocketing values! Anyone know how fast we're taking them off the road?
