Default F/S: 2008 Z06 Katech Street Attack # 046

VIN 1G1YY25E885132684 Black 10,xxx Original Owner miles, 1LZ, 2,000 miles on Katech forged motor. Stage 2 ARE dry sump, AR jet-hot coated headers, Setrab Oil cooler, LS9x clutch, Pfadt Motor mounts, Haltech and F.A.S.T. intake manifold, Dewitts radiator. 610 FHP on Katech dyno. Full Katech upgrades for bulletproof performance.

Full Pfadt single-adjustable coilover suspension with Pfadt highest rated sway bars and bushings. Remarkably civil street behavior considering the incredible performance envelope and cold air conditioning.

Pfadt roll bar improves chassis stiffness, Recaro SPG seats feel great and reduce weight by 60 pounds.

Full carbon aero package per Katech plus Katech Speed World Challenge louvered vented hood.

Car is 3030 pounds wet on the Katech scales, ideally balanced F/R.

Stoptech brakes all 4 corners, (sT-60/sT-40), Option of returning to the perfectly capable stock brakes to save on the final sale price.

All stock parts included if desired. Interior easily converted to stock if desired (with deposit).

No issues or accidents. I am Original Owner, mature physician who takes proper care and no maintainance spared. Car has fresh 650 degree brake fluid flushed and oil change and fresh alignment to Katech specs.

Asking $64,900.00 but have a possible deal pending (with challenging terms) so gotta act FAST. Car in Upper Westchester County (NYC tri-state area- btw 30 miles from coast, area unaffected by Sandy) Note that the asking price is $10k under what Jason Harding at Katech advised, compare to similar low-mileage, 1-owner cars plus over 50% depreciation of over $60,000 in upgrades. So you get a $50k z06 plus $60k in highest quality upgrades at 25 cents on the original dollar. The motor with related upgrades alone would easily top $20,000, plus the round trip closed truck to Katech...

Well, the least you can do is POST PICS when you get your hands on it.

CONGRATS, great job guys, that's the way to close a deal quickly on a KILLER CAR.

Default well once burnt twice shy

I guess I made the fundamental mistake of saying thread closed; and ticket bought... just prior to flying up to buy this car next week; another member undercut me.

Where I'm from the initial check you send at least buys you the right to a counter-offer, but not here. Just an observation; once you think you have a deal; just keep it to your self and don't post; as some folks; presumably with the fluid cash on hand will jump in and pounce like a shark.

There was a day when I used to eat corvettes with a built Z28 (The Raging Bull), but those street racing days are long over. I won't say I hope the member (undisclosed) who bought the car bends a rod tracking the car etc, just I wish I had known him in my street days when i took pinks to pay for my college degrees. I'd loved to see how big his cojones were; and make him cry.

Anyway adios Corvette Forum, I'm thinking of a swarth gray Rossion Q1 I was offered two weeks ago; and turned down since I thought I had this deal going down. The Rossion which will eat the Corvette from Katech, or anyone else for lunch at 3.0 sec at 0 to 60. The Noble forum is smaller too, and those guys arent quite so cutthroat.

In the South we don't do things this way; seems to be standard fare around here....

Anyone would agree that once you say "deal" and take a deposit, then it's a deal. Money changed hands - and unless there is more to the story - selling the car to someone else after a deposit is in-hand is a pretty dishonorable act. Instead of swearing off the car, the forum and the entire corvette community... perhaps you could just lay the blame where it belongs: the Seller (who broke your arrangement). Again, that's assuming there are no more details to the story about financing, full payment, etc.

Sorry to hear of your troubles - I can very much imagine how frustrating this must be.



ETA: With three total posts, it looks like the seller joined the forum just to sell the car.

Well I'm considering a build based on a 2010 3LZ I had as a saved favorite, where the car has 640 miles. It'll cost me considerably more to build it like the car in this thread; but one things for sure I'm not stopping at 610 HP. I have some exposure to NHRA engine builds from an uncle and I learned a little bit along the way as a kid.

Honestly I'd discussed this Katech with the owner previously; then waved off. Issues with another potential buyer and complicated financing brought me back via a new offer. Sometime in that time frame the car ad got posted.

However I accepted this offer, and bought a ticket to fly up next week and finalize. I sent a modest check;and was going to call the seller last night and ask him certified cashiers check or wire transfer for the full amount. To my chagrin, my gmail contained the dreaded "Dear John". I understood the owners needs which are his business.

I agree a deal is a deal once the deposit is made.

But to be fair the new owner is also to blame for provoking the deal. The old saying "what comes around goes around" is oh so true.

Thanks for you comments; as this really frosted my Christmas gift to myself; it really floored me. Unforetunately I've seen folks jumping in and trolling deals; and shouldn't have posted anything; I learned a valuable lesson.

Your reply proves there are normal folks here too; Thank You.

Incredibly sweet car....

Incredibly dick seller...

sorry to hear about the deal falling through after you sent them a deposit and bought a ticket. I sure hope the ticket was refundable?

I agree, in Texas if I take a man's money and tell him "deal" - doesn't matter if someone comes along and offers me more money, a deal is a deal.

Ranging_Bull...that sucks. As an owner of a Noble M12 (you could say it is in the Rossion family), you are going to absolutely love the car.

Well, that is not only a TX thing, but also in KS, if the deal is a deal, and there is a deposit placed, the deal is done! What a crappy move. I would love to hear the other side of the story, if there is any.

Good luck man!
