The old rules for depreciation aren't working on either C5s or C6s in
SoCal. My '02 has risen about $4K since I bought it late last year. I
recently looked at an '03 50th anniv. convertible (w/17K miles) at $
38,400 for a friend. The car was on the lot for 10 days and sold for
Owners aren't selling and some guys on lease terminations have opted to
convert to ownership.
I bought my 2006 LS2 Coupe with the basic 1 LT package , last Feb. for
: $39,960 plus tax . Had 18 miles on the odometer. This was $5000
off of MSRP. Got in at a good time cause this dealer had 3 of these
most basic Vettes left .
There you go, those dealers just don't know how to sell cars. Me thinks that you
should op for the new 2006 that you saw for 42.5K. Don't see the problem of
obtaining a new vehicle for 2.5k more, what was the hold up? Must be that huge
depreciation that I hear about all of the time is slipping a bit? After I traded
my '04 the price went up for about 6 months, feature that.
On the other hand there is a coupe in Colorado Springs at $39,888 and one in
Wilbraham, MA at $37,995 and another at $31,888 in Miami then there's the one in
Richardson TX for $39,974. If you're set on buying at the cheapest price
possible be prepared to travel, also be prepared to be disappointed. I've chased
that goose to many times in my life to believe that an advertised low price is
on the up and up. Might be your time to get lucky, go for it.
