What is the main reason for buying the RFZ????:thumbsup: AND congrats. for the new owner's!!!!!!!:D

Love Ron, Only 299 for USA (Bragging Rights), Love White Z06'S, OR think someday it will go down in history as one of the great Corvette's, and be worth the big bucks:thumbsup: Or..none of the above and none of my business:smack

Great Z06:thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Not a cut down question..Some one at GM had a great Idea, Just curious what really made it work so well:laughing: There have been many special editions from GM:partyon: And will be many more:thumbsup:

Not a buyer but, for me, it would be the love for the white.:thumbsup:

Great question BTW.

I like the car (just enough mods to be a little different), and I won't see a lot of others just like it. Pretty simply, actually. I also look for them to hold value, but that will be a bonus, if it happens. It will probably be my last Vette, so I'm going for what I want. Don't really care that other don't like it or think it's a bad value.:smack

Answering my own question

Congratulations... :partyon: I liked the white, and the fact that there were only a limited number made, though I was not able to get one.

Congrats to all the owners who now have there RFZ babies...as for the thoughts that it might substantially increase in value as a collector car. Limited numbers are in its favor, but I doubt it will ever be a car that appreciates drastically. If they had made any significant engine or performance changes to the car I would have to rethink above statement, but I just don't see the cosmetic changes adding any real value in the end. I do hope I'm wrong for the sake of all the lucky RFZ owners, and at the end of the day...all you guys have the Z06 that you wanted and that is all that should matter.:thumbsup:

:agree:

The Fellows should hold a little better value because of the low production:D

Never going to be ZL1, or L-88 Values!!!!!!!:surprised

I just loved the clean looks of the white totally different ride from my C6 convertible.

The RFZ interested me for a couple reasons. First, it's a limited production model, and while it isn't drastically different than other Zs, the fact remains that there will only be 399 built. That's pretty exclusive company.

Sure, in the future there may be clones out there, but that doesn't alter how rare this car really is (I have a clone 67 L88, but they still only built 20 of 'em in '67, regardless of how many clones pop up).

While it'd be nice if the value of the RFZ remains high, the downside to that equation is that you'd have to SELL it to ever realize that value! I hope to pass mine down to my kids, so whether it holds its value or not really is gravy to me.

It's nice to have a car that you don't see everyday. Corvettes are unique because of the camaraderie that exists between Corvette owners - that's why we wave as we pass each other on the road! Well, that feels even nicer when you own one of the truly unique Corvettes of all time. While my RFZ may not be the greatest Corvette ever built, it sure is one of the most exclusive.

I'm driving home from Detroit to AZ. You should see Vette drivers double-take when they actually see one on the road. Others don't seem to notice.

There's an excellent article as to the why and how the RFZ came about in the June 2007 issue of Corvette Magazine.

I bought one because (a) I like it, (b) it's unique (first ever special edition Vete signed and numbered by a VIP in Corvette history), (c) wanted a white C6 Z06 from the get go, (d) Mrs Zippy said it's the best looking Vette of any previous ones, (e) expect to have a higher re-sale value, over a standard '07Z when it's time for the next one.

Zippy :) :)

Investment is always going to be a "wait and see" issue. A perfect example is the 88 35th anniversary cars. They were limited production and unique in appearance, but you can buy them cheap.

Don't think that will happen to the RFZ though...

I've learned long ago, that cars are not a good investment.
It's because of other investments I'm able to purchase and enjoy new Corvettes.

I agree that cars aren't the best investment out there, but I certainly think there's money to be made. Just think how much a '70 Hemi Cuda would've cost you 10 years ago. My dad owned a '64 Ferrari Lusso, and he sold it for $35K in the early 80s. By 1990, that same car sold for over $300K. I seriously doubt Walmart stock could give you returns like that!

I doubt my RFZ will ever be lumped in that category, but there are cars out there that can make you money - they're just hard to find.

Wasn't the 88 35th an RPO? That would mean it was limited to the number who ordered it. It didn't bring a premium price where I lived as I remember.
