few tidbits:
1. sorry for the awful color/white balance in the one set of photos, took shots after a washing and didn't realize I had the custom white balance from a previous shoot on. couldn't get it totally corrected - but it is much better than they came out originally..
2. here's what's wrong with the car:
a. the nose cone has signs of actual use. This means some rock chips here and there on the paint and the decals - the car is not a zero mile show car, if you want that look north of 25K or plan on restoring the paint to new condition..
b. The bass knob on the radio is stuck in - I will get around to fixing that, maybe.
c. the clutch grabs high - it grabs fine and does not slip but it does grab high to the point where I get used to it and come close to stalling the vette who's clutch is brand new as it is a new car.
d. The wheels could use a clay/polishing - no curb rash or bends but they are not pristine and need to come off for a detailed cleaning
e. (to be fixed soon) - needs a new air cleaner.

Other than that, this car is really in amazing shape and would be a great addition to a collector's fleet. I would love to keep it but I just don't have the time for it and I don't want it to sit and rot. Family, work and a 2009 Z06 keep me more than busy..

Wow 25466 new in 1997 if you get 18k for that that is 70% of its value over 13.5 years.

I think I saw your Car at Flem Chevy a few days ago maybe saturday ???

nah must have been another.. I am in Flemington but haven't had it to the dealer since January..

if you think about it though, the dollar has devalued quite a bit since 1997 - so this is less than 50% adjusted for inflation - that being said, this is now a rare car (esp at miles), limited and collectible, otherwise it would be worth a lot less.

So someone actually flew in to try to buy this car yesterday. Prior to that person (and spouse) coming I was very clear: I am FIRM at $18K. I had to call them a cab to take them back to the airport after an offer of $17K. Don't let this happen to you - I mean what I say and I'd rather keep the car than have someone come and tell me it's not worth what they are even offering. They must have spent more on the wasted travel than the difference in price..

Car still available - would like to free up some cash for HPDE habit I picked up this past weekend (in the vette - wow what a blast!)

bigwoolyg 02-24-2011 12:58 PM

Bump - spring is just around the corner - time to scoop up this collectors car!!

Beautiful car, but unrealistic price. GLWS.

Looks like you should have taken that 17k. The market is in a rough place.

bigwoolyg 02-25-2011 10:53 AM

I'm not in dire straits...

that $17k was about $5k more than anyone else would give you for it

I just bought a 15k mile one owner hardtop white/ hugger 30th with a manual. 18K is ball park because low mileage ones are getting harder to find. They did build less hardtop cars. My car was $24170 with a $5295 SLP add on, total $29465. My SLP exhaust exits on left side with two pipes together. Sit tight someone will buy you're car if you market it right.

Hold your price. If I didn't already have the convertible version of yours(minus the houndstooth, I stayed white leather) I'd be all over it. $18k for a classic with low miles is not out of line.
