Default Is Your C5 Paid Off?

... or are you still making payments? How much longer?

Or if your 'Vette is fully paid off, for how long?

Mods don't count - just the base vehicle.

No payments- decided a long time ago that buying toys shouldn't mortgage your future.

I put a stack of Franklins on the guy's desk and said- there's the cash - -you can take that price- or I'll wish you a nice day and leave.

Effective bargaining tool when it's a nice puddle of Bejamins . . .

Had the cash when I bought mine but took out a loan. Made three payments (I hate car payments) and decided to pay it off. No more payments.

no sadly after the divorce and re-stabilization period

I bought one on credit

1 --to help rebuild credit

2 ---because I refused to let that biotche deprive me of one of my great pleasure in life and that's a Corvette

paid in full from the getgo...have been living on the streets ever since.... starving and begging for food...now 10 years later my $56,000 Vette is worth maybe $20,000...(IF I were to sell it)...maybe $15,000 if some generous buyer on this forum would buy it...that's all they would offer me here

Like my plate says: brka leg! Always wanted one, took another motorcycle to hit me head on while on my HD to get enough insurance money to pay cash for a nice used c5.No more HD, but still do the wave. I forget about the aches and pains when the top is down on my 4 wheeler

Took a 36 month loan out and paid it off in 12. Best way to increase your credit score.
