what you're asking for is extremely easy. check all your local dealers. if you're willing to pay that much it's not like you're shopping for a firesale. i would imagine there are quite a few cars forsale i your state in that price range.

I found mine on craigslist. It was local, so I could see it before I bought it. You might have to wait a while, but it might work out. Lots of Corvettes in Florida!

Good luck!

If im going to go dealer route, its near impossible to find one with headers, intake, and exhaust. And if you do, their usually priced high. Then i have to eat dealer fee, etc. etc.

Private party is the best way to go, thats why im asking around on here

69camarao - I'm in your boat, budget and state...
Should be an interesting hunt, though I think, there's been a couple of good deals around, but I'm not really getting ready to move before now...

Ive been looking for a month now. Everyone says their easy to find in Florida which is not true. Ive looked at 5 different vettes, and 2 had title problems and other 3 were horribly taken care of! I know the motors are stout but if you don't clean your car and take care of it, its not worth 1000$ to me. I'm looking for a true Vette enthusiast that i feel comfortable buying from. Not someone elses problems.

I even looked at a Z06, over due on oil changes and problems after problems. Amazing how people take care of their vehicles

Good luck

Where in Florida are you

these cars aren't easy to buy or sell. you really just have to be patient. i've been watching the c5z and c6 market in my area for a year and have seen 4 cars worth buying which averages 1 every 3 months.

personally i'm waiting a few months for c6's to start coming on market as the c7 buyers sell off. the best c6 deal i've seen in the past 6 months was a 2005 with 62k sell for 18k. before long that should be the new normal. 06 may get 20 all else similar. if the 6 trades anything like the 5 the 2008+ cars will be just like 2001+ and be the premium c6's that demand the most money and 05-07 will sell like 97-00 in the lower bracket

I've been watching the market for roughly 9 months and second Racebum's comments. I'll go see some cars next weekend, need to drive a couple of different ones (M6 vs A6).
I'm in Orlando, Fl.
@ Racebum: Why do you expect the future owners of C7's to start selling their cars already in a couple of months, instead of trading them in when the C7's hit the dealers in the fall?

you can never be too sure but the last new release i watched was the nissan Z car. the 370 was out 2 years before 350 prices hit bottom.

my best guess is that it will be around one year from today before the really hot deals start coming to market in quantity. that said i would still expect this summer to be a good c6 buyer market. yesterday marked the end of the c6 being the current model which with any car is a value softener

i just looked at kbb trade in on a 65k mile 2006 car and it's showing 20k in good condition.

nice cars never really go off a cliff, they just trickle down 1000-2000 dollars per year until they bottom out. the early c5s appear to be doing that in the 7-9k range. i think it's unlikely for clean ones to go much lower

@ Racebum: OK, thanks for your perspective!
@ 69camaro: Did you see the following car: http://jacksonville.craigslist.org/cto/3526422244.html
I would like a black or LMB, but the one in the link does have all the equipment (LT3) that I would prefer...

there's a 34k mile 2008 ls3 car in san francisco for 27k. best deal i know of at the moment. it's also from a dealer so you don't have to sweat the story changing owners. it's a lot more car than many of the recent 20-25k c6's i've seen recently

if you could get them to 26.5, 500 flight and do the math on gas and motels you may be able to swing a 28k round trip and see a lot of the country on the drive back

@Racebum: That does sound like a good deal!
@69camaro: Can you enlighten me on what car it was (via PM, maybe) so I can avoid it?
Have you seen this - could be a good deal: http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-s...archRadius=200
Sorry for the long link :-(

Their mostly craigslist locals. Most down south in florida like Ft lauderdale and miami. Some cars i had interest in, you'd call them and schedule an appointment to see the car, then when its the day of i call to confirm the time and they dont answer and never call back. Why list your car if you don't take the time and effort to sell it

could be, depends on how flexible they are.

the car i was talking about is here

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/ctd/3545277786.html

it's a great deal, i just really don't want to spend this much on a daily driver i'm going to run in the rain and mud.

i'm looking for a nice 60k mile, few chips and scuffs but overall decent 06-07 car around 20k. once c7 orders start happening in september there should be a LOT of supply.
