Default Is Your C5 Paid Off?

... or are you still making payments? How much longer?

Or if your 'Vette is fully paid off, for how long?

Mods don't count - just the base vehicle.

No payments- decided a long time ago that buying toys shouldn't mortgage your future.

I put a stack of Franklins on the guy's desk and said- there's the cash - -you can take that price- or I'll wish you a nice day and leave.

Effective bargaining tool when it's a nice puddle of Bejamins . . .

Haven't bought mine yet, but it will be 36 month terms, I'm sure.

Had the cash when I bought mine but took out a loan. Made three payments (I hate car payments) and decided to pay it off. No more payments.

no sadly after the divorce and re-stabilization period

I bought one on credit

1 --to help rebuild credit

2 ---because I refused to let that biotche deprive me of one of my great pleasure in life and that's a Corvette

Financing it. I plan to pay it off early and it's helping me build my credit.

paid in full from the getgo...have been living on the streets ever since.... starving and begging for food...now 10 years later my $56,000 Vette is worth maybe $20,000...(IF I were to sell it)...maybe $15,000 if some generous buyer on this forum would buy it...that's all they would offer me here

Like my plate says: brka leg! Always wanted one, took another motorcycle to hit me head on while on my HD to get enough insurance money to pay cash for a nice used c5.No more HD, but still do the wave. I forget about the aches and pains when the top is down on my 4 wheeler

Took a 36 month loan out and paid it off in 12. Best way to increase your credit score.
