Default Annnnnd she’s gone.

Got paid $15K to drive and keep her for 18 months. Not too shabby I think. It was a good car tho.

Good thing I remembered to get the PDR memory.

But, parking fail. You didn't back into the spot.


Love the color... the darker C7s look much better to my eye than lighter colors.

I've been watching the C7 market pretty closely for the last year and a half or so...I think you timed it well.
Market seems to be softening, in my observations at least.

Maybe on a hood mobile or a rice burner, but on a Corvette it's go chrome or go home.

Chrome or go home says you're over 60-65 years old, and quite likely older.

I sold it to a Jaguar/Land Rover dealer. Seems all manufacturers are screwed right now due to the chip thing. I’m looking at a 2 year wait till I buy and hopefully back to MSRP or below by then.

I’d love to have a new truck. One I found that would fit the bill was $81K. Freakin damn.

Well, to be fair, I was gonna track the car so caliper color and wheel color never meant much anyway.

Yeah, I have 5 sets of shit wheels for the '08. I'm going to dig out the 4 GM OEM rims that were that dark grey and have them powder coated to black and put them on the '09. I ****ing hate the chrome rims on my '09.

I do have a set of forged rims with Toyo R888’s on them with C7 TPMS if anyone is interested….

Along with:

Full C7 Weathertech mats
Uniden C7 detector
GrandSport seat towels
C7 spoiler guard
Zl1 front and rear tow hooks.

Just a couple of extra things.
