Default Totally paid for C6 thread

It seems like a lot of folks are posting threads lately. So, if you own your C6...no loan balance, no monthly payments etc, post a photo.

07 free and clear many years now. That "no interest for 36 months" promotion was no big deal...just $25,000 down and $750 per month.

I wouldn't have bought it if I couldn't pay for it on the spot. I did sell my 69 Coupe first though. Tacked on another $10k of my own and no payments, title in hand.

0% for 36 months when i bought it in March of 2007 so it's been paid for since 2010. Took it to EnglandGreen for a little work after it was paid for.

The one and only car I ever financed was back in the mid-1970's and it was outrageous....a $76.87 monthly payment! I pay cash for my cars and I don't flip them every couple years just to have the latest-greatest. I'll keep a good car for many years.

It's nice to pay cash, but last year when they were offering free financing, you'd have been better off investing the money and financing the car. Most of my investments made 30-40 pct last year... On a 65g car, that money would have returned around 22g.

I bought my car in March, 2008 and paid cash but the market plunged that year and I was happy to have gotten my car with no payments. Do whatever you think is best since markets are always so volatile.



Currently at 45,000 and climbing - enjoy driving your Corvette!

Mines paid off. I had a 5 year note, but I paid it off after 3 years (lump sum on the final two years).

I came with a hefty down payment so the loan wasn't outrageous to begin with. However to pay it off, I rolled my car loan, student loan, and old mortgage into my new mortgage because I got a lower interest rate (by over a percentage point) and I'm still waaaay right side up on my house (loan is only 55% of the equity)
