Default Anyone check out Ebay?

I was looking through ebay the other day and came upon 4 zr1s' with under 1000 miles! One had only 25 miles on it! Asking price $75000, good luck with that. But there was one for 28K that had 900 miles on it. What I don't get is why someone would drop 60K on a car and not enjoy it and the turn around and sell it for 30K less then he paid for it twenty years later? They were all gorgeous examples though, just like they came off the showroom.

If someone dropped 60K on it, it wasn't a ZR1.

I think it sounds too good to be true also.

I don't understand ur post. If I had 75g, I would consider that a pretty good deal for a zr1 with 25 miles. That's brand new in my book. No way someone is selling one for 28000. Must be the current bid and I'm sure the reserve is se in the upper 70 or more range.

I cant believe the other posters haven't figured this out yet. He clearly stated 20 years in his post.

He also posted in a C6 forum. Which makes little to no sense to me. Why the heck would I care what a c4 is going for, if I own a C6 and looking at the new "c6" post for the day.

Anyone check out what forum they're posting in before they post?

This coming from a Camaro owner is the definition of ironic.

...or perhaps if you checked his profile, you'd see he's owned 5 Vettes and has been a member here 5 years longer than you have.
