If everything checks out once you see it and test drive it, I would say yes it is a good deal.

Suggested Retail on Kelly Blue Book is $31,894 so if everything checks out and looks like a solid car I'd say that's a very good deal!

Seems like an ok deal. I would save up and get a 2008+ though (with the LS3.)

I think that price is a good one. There are late-year C5s selling at about the same price.

If car check out...no previouse damage, it is a good deal. I would not sell my 100,000 mile 07 for that.

22k? That's LOW with only 29k on the odometer. I'd Get a carfax report.

VV,

I've been looking for a while: this is a smoking deal, assuming, of course, that you have the car checked out and it is reasonably close to what you want.

My $.02:

1. Unless you are a certified technician or very familiar w C5 & C6, I would PAY someone to check out this car for you. Don't assume anything! Ask on here: A CF Forum Member will prob help you out, possibly at n/c.

2. The LMB/Ebony w 6 sp., polished wheels, etc. is a very desirable car. Can't see from the pics if Z51 or not. Check the GloveBox when test driving. The way I look at it, somebody has already taken the big depreciation on this baby. In fact, this may be too cheap for this car . (see #1.)

3. The Carmax website is a good guideline for you. I'll bet a car similar to this would be offered for no less than $28k.

4. As someone above has said, an 08 or up w LS3 is a more desirable car, but is usually only currently available in the $30k and up range.

5. It's decision time, my friend!!

6. C'mon C7! The C6 boyz don't wanna hear this, but a bunch of us are hoping for some serious C6 price drops come this fall.

That sounds like a good deal. Being where you are located, I would insure its not a flood car. Not quite sure how you would go about it, but I would do my best to check it out.

Just an FYI, I read some reviews of that dealer and they were shaky at best, but otherwise it seems great, but I would be very cautious. Carfax and mechanical inspections may not go very well.

Having been thru the searching process recently, I say if it checks out, buy it. I wasted alot of hours searching ads across the country, deals like this didn't pop up. I'm sure everyone has stories of smokin' deals, but they are rare.

Did I miss this? 1LT, 2LT or 3LT? Good price though even if it's a 1LT.
