Hey everyone! I'm a 23yo engineer living in VA Beach, Virginia. I've been looking at a variety of sports/muscle cars to own for years now and have finally decided on a Corvette. Specifically, a C5 zo6. This forum is one of the big reasons I've decided to go this route. I've been looking through the for sale posts and love what I'm seeing.

I'm not in a position to buy immediately because I have a car right now (BMW) that I'm still making payments on. I'm super bored with it and want something more driver oriented and fun. I'm working on selling it now so that I can payoff the loan and buy what I really want. Anyways, thanks for all the help you've already provided, and will provide in the future. Can't wait to own my own c5!

Welcome to the forum. Virginia Beach is a really nice area - I lived there when I was stationed in the Navy (NAS Oceana). Good luck in your search for a C5 Z06 and a great choice in that model of Corvette.

If you haven’t already done so, check out the stickies at the top of the page in the C5 General and C5 Tech Sections. They contain a lot of very useful information about the C5 and the buying process.

Thank you! I actually workout over at Oceana. Seems like a really nice base. I look into those stickies regarding purchasing because I do have some questions.
