I just don't see a small time dealer in Jasper Florida, with what I'm guessing is minimal allocation, being a big deal, by selling for a discount to try and get any Corvette sales. I'll bet there will be other small time, small town dealers doing the same as this 2nd allocation rolls out.

Maybe I'm wrong by not seeing it a big deal - heaven only knows I've been wrong a million times . . . .

Hey guys ^ - In retrospect I didn't put what I was thinking into words very well previously. I am not at all diminishing the value of the $4000 discount - it is excellent - and a good catch by Sliverblue. All I was really trying to express is that small dealers looking to sell a couple units, and discounting to do the same (understandably so) are not, imho, going to rock the boats of the BIG CORVETTE DEALERS in terms of affecting their discount structure. There , that's better . . .

with Michael 100%. Furthermore, the reason for my post is I HOPE the big dealers do sit up and take notice. Look, even at invoice, the dealers are picking up close to $1,800.00 in hold back from the factory. Once I can get a legitimate "invoice" offer with no doc fees, I am all in. I will order the car that very day and it is looking more and more like we are getting there and faster then even I had hoped. Forum dealers are you listening? I am ready, are you????

Some dealers have so few allocations as to be inconsequential in the overall scheme of things. But for that lucky few.....

Like that female member here (can't remember her name) whose small local dealership sold their allocation to local Corvette Club members at Invoice in order to generate big time Goodwill

This dealer in question was one of the founding vendor supporters of the C5 Registry in the days before this Forum. He not only was one of the first Corvette dealers on the internet, was also the first you could find that had any discounts in '98 when the first C5 convertible came out. Not only offered discounts but offered free Corvette Museum delivery, he was always a big financial supporter of the Corvette Museum. I don't know what his allocation is today or if it can be classified as "small time", but I would buy from him again if he had an allocation for a car I wanted. I bought (3) C5's from him in a 5 year period. He was every bit as good as "big time" dealers that support this Forum and receive frequent accolades. Plus, he always answered calls and emails withing 24 hours, unlike some of these "big time" dealers who support this forum. Just my 2 cents.....

Give him a call - he'd likely love to hear from you. Your post would leave one to believe you didn't buy from him after your C5's - why not? Maybe he has the right C7 deal for you?

I stopped with my last new one which was my '03 Anniversary Vert. I am waiting for a deal on a Z51 and winter in Pittsburgh to be over.

Completely understood.

I sometimes take the weather in south Florida for granted.

It must take some real will power to put the C7 in storage for 4 months out of the year.

Hope you get your C7 real soon!

c7.
the round lights are worth it..............

Kind of makes you wonder...
Funny how so few who have driven the car agree with his assessment... clearly no bias in his view after buying his new GS

In all seriousness, it's good that he's so happy with his GS, it's a great car. However, if his modded GS runs into a modded C7 with headers and a tune, he will, unfortunately, be looking at more C7 rear than he might like

The fact that the GS and C6Z are still holding means that not everyone is salivating over the C7. And outside of gadgets and new factor the C6Z is a better performing (fact) and better looking (opinion)car.
