Default Used car websites

I'm looking for a used Vette Grand Sport convertible with manual transmission; either 2LT or 3LT. What are the best websites I should be using to look for such a car? I've tried the generic website searches and haven't found much so far. Thanks.

I found our '00 C5 FRC via autotrader.com back in '02. When I started looking for our C7 I tried cars, autotrader, craigslist, and cargurus.com.

Found it on autotrader, although please recognize I'm not saying the others are bad.

If AT was what you were meaning by "generic", then I think you just need to have some patience and persistence on finding your new car.

HTH, and have a good one,
Mike

The sites previously mentioned are probably the best, but here are some others:
Carmax, autolist, getauto and iSeecars. GLWYS!

Default Seek And Ye Shall Find

I sold my C1 and HD Fatboy on eBay. Worked slick both times. Maybe I was lucky? Maybe I was smart? I choose smart.

I purchased my Z06 from these guys. If you search the forum you can find my detailed experience. In short, it worked great and I'll buy from them again whenever we need another car, corvette or not.

Don't forget that new startup website Carvana.com
We actually have one of their vending machines local here.

Cargurus / Ebay is where I found my car. Cargurus is the best!

Love me some AutoTrader surfing, even when not actively looking for a car. Found my most recent on eBay, though.

CArgurus is nice because you can see how long a car has been sitting on dealer lots which can help with negotiations. It helped me find my car.

I agree with AutoTrader. When I was searching I used several sites, only to find that Autotrader had the most listings. Most of the others were just duplicates. I landed up using AutoTrader and Cars.com focusing mostly on AutoTrader. I did try ebay, but found it's hit or miss. YMMV

AutoTrader.com & RVTrader.com is where I found and bought my last two used vehicles from.
