Default Low mileage C7s over 1 year old-lets hear from you

I'll start.

I got my 2015 in April 2015 and I now have 6973 miles. I only drive it in nice weather and only park it when I go out to eat at a quality restaurant with plenty of parking or at a friend's house with a driveway. Each ride is special.

Please no "drive it and enjoy it-its only a car" comments. This is how I enjoy my car. (and yes I take my meds regularly)

Garage queens speak up!

I bought a certified 2016 Z from a dealer with 4500 miles on it 6 months ago. It now has 9700 miles on it because i drive it daily to work.

I just want to say "thank you" to the "garage queen" owners for keeping these cars new and pristine so that I can buy these beauties in a like new condition.

Bought my 14' with 6900 miles on the clock in August. The last driver absolutely babied the car and took excellent car of it. I thanked him profusely before I drove it away.

I put 2000 miles on it in 2 months before putting the car up for the winter. If not for that I would have likely doubled the mileage before the new year rings in.

My C5 Z06 is the same way. Kept in the garage barely drive it. Planning on moving up to C7. I only drive mine when I have time on the weekends and that is barely. Working 7 days a week with my job donít get much time to drive it. Rethinking of buying used instead of new. There are so many out there forsale.

Don't know if you consider it low mileage but my 2015 Z51 just rolled over 6,000 miles.




I have 2 other mid-year Corvettes that I split driving between so none of them gets high miles put on them over the year. I drive all 3 frequently, but it doesn't add up to a lot of miles on each.

That's 475 miles per year. Crazy low!

We put 40k mi on our 2014 SC627 Stingray, 28k mi on our 2016 SC757 Z06, and just sold our 2016 SC757 Z06 AeroWagen with 56,000 miles.

All these are LOW miles compared to our 2010 SC606 GS w/ 275,000 miles, and still going...

Your car and your choice; I get that. But why not just rent one when you need it? That is a massive depreciation per mile cost.

Well I bought my first Corvette a month ago. It is a 2014 Stingray 3LT and it had 21K miles at that time. I have put 2K miles on it in a month. Probably will be much less as time goes on, but I drive it every chance I get when the weather is good. I am 69 and kick myself for not doing this sooner. I know I just have a base model but Touring is all I want and will never track it or drag it. I am constantly amazed by the technology and features of this car. This is the neatest machine on earth for the price. Wheeee.

This is exactly how I have bought my last few Vettes... ultra-low mileage practically-new garage queens for tens of thousands of dollars cheaper than new.

My last 4 Corvettes were each over 2 years old, but each with something like 4,xxx miles on the clock at the time of my purchase. (I DD my Corvette, so the miles go on quickly after purchase!)

My thanks as well to the garage queen curators that enable me to buy nearly new Corvettes on the cheap!

I typically only put on about 3k miles per year from April to November. Bought my 2019 GS June 29th and put on almost 4K miles. 1000 of that was the trip from MacMulkin. I drove it quite a bit this summer and fall. Iíll try to put in another 4K miles next year. It is much more fun to drive than my old 2004 z06 so I like to drive as much as I can. No DD, just sunny day road trips.
