I just looked at a 2011 2SS black with grey stripes and 9500 miles on it. They were asking $35,995. Your price seems not so bad compared to that. However I live in Alaska so of course the shipping cost has to be factored in and I was just looking. I'm not sure how much of that they would knock off. I know they'll want to sell it before the snow flies in Oct so I might go back in Sept.

The question is if you could find something for a lower price that you might have to have shipped to you (or fly to get) would that be worth it? I'm wresstling with that right now. I can't see buying something for this price sight unseen. Has anyone ever done that? I guess with email and digital video/pictures you could get a good idea of the condition but I feel I'd have to go and take a look at it. That costs time and money so needs to be factored in.

Is it the color you want?

yeah, thats similar. Actually I just saw a 2011 Camaro 2SS/RS, Black, 7910 miles, for $32,974. And I was looking for some input from everyone on what that sounds like. Good deal or not?

Ive heard of buying a one way ticket to buy the car, then drive it back. I'm like you, I dont want to buy it site unseen. But pictures and also the carfax reports help alot too.

LOL - that would be a minimum of 3000 miles ... more probably . We are WAY far north. For the amount of work time missed I'd be much better off paying to have it shipped back.

lol, yeah youre probably right. I live in Louisville, KY, so I've been searching dealer websites from the surrouding states. The car I wrote about just recently doesnt seem like a bad deal compared to the others I've been looking at. But people are telling me I can buy a NEW 2011 for the same or less price, but it's hard to find one for me.

how long have you been looking? How much of a rush are you to buy? Seems to me there are lots of people on here talking about the deal of the century. If you're willing to wait you could probably get a deal like that. The question is at what price point does it not become worth the time of endless searching, and waiting?

I'm at the point in my life where sometimes I'd just rather pay a little more, get what i want, and be done with it. It gets exhausting with all the looking and waiting. Time is money (or at least a repsite from working your tail off to make money) so you have to account for time loss too! Don't get me wrong, I don't just throw money around and being that way over time has left me in situation where if i don't want to be thrifty I can afford not to be.

I've been looking for a couple months. I plan to buy at the beginning of next year, that way I'll have more money saved for a down payment and hopefully some new year deals and pricing and financing. So, I still have several months left to search and hopefully find that great deal.
