I found a NBM '00 Corvette with 51,600 miles/Auto from a local dealership. They are asking $22,995 for it, but I know I can get a better deal than that. I was just wondering what kind of offer I should make.

Thanks for the help, and I look forward to joining the Vette Community!

Salvage or rebuilt title comes to mind first :thumbsup:


Run a carfax/ try to get dealer records.

Have you test drove the car yet?

Not everything gets picked up by Carfax.

I'd be mostly concerned about the drivetrain and transmission.

my opinion is to get a mechanic take a look at it before you buy it will be the best 250$ you will spend

even if its from a private party?
Maybe even more so. And a salvage title would significantly lower any book values unless listed as salvage values. Some banks will not finance a vehicle with a salvage title, so if financing, that is a concern

The carfax appears clean, 2 owner, both local, first owner to 35K miles, second owner to 51K miles.

I checked the black book trade in (assuming that is how this vehicle was acquired) and it lists this car at 18,500 for good condition. I think I might be able to walk out the door for 21K (incl. TTL). Especially considering I have my own financing.

Thoughts?

NM, dealership just informed me that they have sold the car.

Thanks anyways! The search continues!
