Im sorry if this has been discussed before but Im just amazed when people ask me how much I paid for my 01 C5. They are usually off by 20 grand or so but today at the gas station a guy came up to me and said "that is a nice car I bet you spent around $50,000 for it" haha thanks but no! One reason I love these cars...12 years old and still looks new and expensive
I just sold a Harley and replaced it with 2001 ragtop. I paid $21K, felt it was a bargain by condition and miles. I don't know if the market is soft for Corvettes. Maybe it fluctuates. I feel I got a lot for what I spent.
I do know I will no longer be riding alone. My wife had no desire to get on the back of the bike after some 30yrs of riding. She is as excited about this car as I am and I doubt I will miss the Harley.
Well since i get alot of is that a new 2013? i would say the car looks $70,000 whats it worth? its worth what someone is willing to pay for it. To me its worth feeling good and having fun in life i love this car to me its just as good as a $350,000 ferri.
I bought my '98 used in 2000 with 11,000 miles on the odometer. It now has 25,500 on the odometer and many mods. Not to sound like I have a big head, but it's priceless to me. It's the only car I've ever owned that I love more today than the day I bought it. I just took out the trash and had to stop and admire it in the garage for a few seconds before finishing the job.
When I bought my car I was still a police officer and had to watch people roll their eyes and listen to their comments about how "well paid" I must be to afford such an expensive car. I paid less for it than for my wife's SUV, which always made me chuckle.
