I blame you.

This 2008 yellow Z06 with 3LZ trim showed up on Craigslist Sunday night. A family in Madison is getting ready to move out to Hawaii and was ready to unload it. Nothing really noteworthy about an all stock 52k mile C6 with the exception of a $25k purchase price and local. Naturally a stock Corvette will need a thorough oil change. But it will stay fairly mild, all relatively speaking of course.

I actually did test drive the salvage title C7. To be honest I do want a C7, but for $10k less I will "settle" for a C6 Z06. I might have been money ahead to buy one already modified, but this one is tight and feels unmolested. And I need to dust off the tools anyway.

Terrible pictures, but everyone knows what a C6 looks like anyway.

Glad I could be of service. I actually saw that one for sale and forwarded it to a friend a few days ago. Looks like a steal. I'll be following to see how well it does as a daily. Congrats!

I saw that same car and thought about sending it to you. That’s a solid deal!
