Default Best Place to list my 2005

I'm going to sell my 2005 base this spring. Where is the best place to list my car? Auto Trader? Corvette Forum? Or somewhere else. What has been your experience.?

Corvette Forum- Get told your price is way to high and 50 low ball offers, and possibly finally a sale
Auto Trader- Get 15 tire kickers and joy riders and possibly a buyer
Craigslist- Get 5,000 emails from people offering more than your car is worth, and will send a money order, and for you to send them the overage to Nigeria, and their courier will pick up the vehicle
Ebay- Get 25 bids and the winner may back out because they couldn't get funding
Trade it in- get screwed on the sale or the new car purchase, depends on if you want more for yours or pay less for theirs
Carmax- know exactly how much they are screwing you for in a relatively short positive experience

Bring a trailer also is a bad place to try to sell a corvette. Theyll spend 40k kn a crapbox german car, but the nicest vette in the world they're like "15k tops".

As mcandrew said, Ebay, Craigs List, Autotrader, CarMax, Corvette Forum, or even a old fashioned trade in, good luck!

LOL! I did actually chuckle a bit on Carmax. What you forgot to mention on Craigslist.....someone may block your post because you are an elitist, driving a car that is not utilitarian enough to save the planet. Seriously...

Well no Carmax anywhere near me. Definitely NOT Craigslist. Maybe trade in as my lease on my Explorer is up in June. Either way, it's stuck in the back of the storage until April.

Auto Trader has always worked best for me.

ain't that the truth.

I always opt for #4 and hope for the best. I don't have the temperament or patience for any of the others.

I've always had good luck with Craigslist. You just need to write a good ad, with good pics, and the right price. Weeding thru the scams and tire kickers isn't that difficult to do.

Depending on miles and condition, I'd try corvette forum too. Cars that are priced correctly don't last long it seems.

Try them all. You can also park your car with a for sale sign on it as that worked for me plenty
