Finally selling my Vette. Sad day.

I put off selling my cars unless I really had to. But now, I am buying a bit of property that I need, so I guess it's time.
Being a corvette lover, I'm guaranteed to buy another soon, but for now, adios my love.

Im selling my Porsche too..

What do you guys think of the ad? I will post it on DC ads tonight as well..

Wow, beautiful car. Great ad. Great price.

The only catch is the regret. It will be hard to find another like her.

Wishing I had $29K...

That's a real keeper I know your selling to buy a house but I don't think you will find another like it. I'd sell the silver vette in the garage.

Actually Roy, the PB business didnt start, too much BS county bureaucracy.. I threw my money into a Classic resto and Hot rod / Custom auto shop...

Opened it 5 months ago.. Business is good!

PS: Viper is doing great.

A couple of things here...

Houses are overrated. Keep the Vette!

I was about to send you 29 grand but then I saw a swirl in the hood. That's a deal breaker.

Your rebuild site was very good.

I wish that I could have worked my magic on that paint. I could add 2 grand to the price easy.

That car is bad ass. Someone will really be pleased. Sad to see it go. Hell, there's NOTHING wrong with your house, KEEP THE VETTE!

I sold a Vette once, for money.
In hindsite, one of the worst decisions I've ever made ............ should have kept that car. If I had only been more creative in financing at the time.

....for less than 1K you could fly AJ out, feed him really well (both quantity and quality) and find him some "legs" to take care of that paint and still be money ahead

Best of luck to you

Looks great! I know what a tough decision this has to be. Somebody will care about her as much as you do, and will be grateful that you decided to sell.

Good luck!

Your ad is a bit confusing, not sure what you are trying to say but Chevy never put a 383 in those Vettes. I don't know how that effects your comments about not needing smog just FYI

Hi Raid!
The comment about smog and the 383 were unrelated.
In CA cars before 1975 are smog exempt.

about the 383, I meant that folks back then used to put 383s into vettes too..
