Default We want your Corvette!

Since the C7 reveal, I have received two letters concerning my C6.

Last week a stealership sent me a letter stating their Corvette stock of cars had been depleted and were offering me a new vehicle for a trade in of my 2006 Corvette....I threw it in the trash!!

Today I received a letter from a second Stealership offering me $24,740 for my 2006 Corvette depending on miles and condition......Trash can!!!

YOU CAN'T HAVE MY SQUIRREL! Stop sending me this junk mail!


Have any of you received the same kind offers?

I get those letters about twice a year for my old C5. I bet it said "up to" $24k.

I've received those for many vehicles I've owned over the years.

My Jeep was probably the one that generated the most.

I guess they aren't interested in my C4

I have gotten things in the distant past for my Mustang and Camaros.

I guess they figure if they send enough out, someone may actually think it is for real and go on in think of a new car. Once you are there they start the game.

absolutely a BS scam to get you in the Door.... I had a 2004 SSR with 51k on it and it was mint and Yellow. letter said $19,500 and could be worth up to $20,500. when I got there it was only really $17500 maybe $18,000.... I took it to CARMAX and Got $19500 and didn't have to buy from them. took my equity and put it down on my 2012 F250 4x4 XLT crewcab Diesel that I just put 6" lift and 37" tires on... the REAL train horns arrived today

Those train horns make me jump because I'm not expecting it!






Got another letter yesterday. Ripped it up!

I just got one the other day. $22K for my 2004 coupe. Problem is I sold that one in 2004. I doubt I can get it back, but at that price I might try... Not.
