Kid drives up in a 2001 Camry. Nobody bothers with him.

Adult drives up in a 2004 Boxster, rarely someone will take him. (guys that old in nice cars didn't get money by ebing stupid with it)

Kid drives up in a Boxster/BMW/mercedes that his parents bought him: Everyone jumps on it, and generally ends up going to the veteran salesman. Why? because all we gotta do is bring his father down, and it's al good. And we'll generally inquire as to whether or not his parents can come down today before we let them have a test-drive.

I never would have thought of that, although it does make a lot of sense lol.

Haha. That would be nice, but I'm not that rich yet.


Unfortunately, the prices of the z06 are still marked up from retail from what I hear.



The dealers I went to didn't allow you to see what car a customer pulled up in due to their design. The chevy dealer came up to me immediately as I walked over to the Corvette. The Nissan dealers I had to pursue to get their attention.

I can't stop thinking about this car I need to test again.

thats what the new owner plans! and it will apparently stat with an updated version of the TVR Griffith, which was a 2seat roadster with a 4litre V8, aluminium body, weighed less than 1.5t and did 0-60 in about 4secs!
shame TVR replaced the engine with the Straight6 found today!

I just found out now that the c6 has a removable roof panel. That would suppress my convertible needs enough to justify the purchase.


For the price I paid for my car, I could have gotten a fully optioned out c6 coupe.

I wish I knew this. I can't stop beating myself over the head right now. I could be driving one of those beasts.


Woe...is...me...


It's all "What"'s fault.

Research what? 99% of cars in this price range don't even offer that as an option. I had no way of knowing


Oh well. I am getting one anyways. It's just a matter of time.
