Default Newbie trying to decide which with a 35k budget

Hello Everyone,

I just sold my hotrod and now looking to get a Vette. I love the new C7's but that is not in my budget. That said what year would you buy below 35K? I can find a lot of C6's with low miles here in Ca. in a 2007 -2013. I wanted white but thats hard to find so whats your favorite color as well? Any pointers would be appreciated. I also want an automatic tranny. Im too lazy to shift.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome Rob. My advice is to buy the newest Corvette that your budget allows and that has the options and color combinations that you really want. With an approximately $35K budget, you should be able to get into a 2013 with low to moderate miles, maybe even a GS.
