Recently purchased this 2000 Magnetic Red Coupe, automatic with 17,000 miles. No modifications and still had the original tires (date coded 1999).
Car spent it's entire life in Jacksonville, Florida.
So far I've replaced the tires, installed new rotors and pads and serviced the rear differential.
There are a few odds and ends that need some attention but all in all it's a clean tight car.
From what I've read this forum is loaded with folks with a lot of knowledge and are willing to share it...this is extremely helpful for a first time Corvette owner like me.
Plans are to make the Route 66 trip from some where in Missouri and head west....its a bucket list thing.
