Hmmmm....

About 40 probably....Thank goodness for Carfax, I found a pile of OD rollbacks, salvage cars, cars with damage that had been poorly repaired...

I originally wanted Comp Yellow...but instead it turned into "the first nice one I see".

Jumped in a plane and flew an hour north to see the one I eventually bought...

Maybe 10.......Most were POS!

No Doubt!!!

When I bought th '89, I had planned to find a vert, but found what horrible condition some onwers leave their cars in. I couldn't find one I could afford that wasn't completely ragged.

It's sad really. Oh, and I looked at seven before giving up on the vert idea... :nuts:

Actually went to Bill Jacobson to by a Camaro SS I found on GmBuYpower.com, ended up seeing the new EB in August 2001, Looked at a vert but i didn't like the one they had - a tan top on it with tan interior, wanted black, then I decided I should save a lil money and go for the coupe, I found one I liked, told them I would be back Tomorrow, (after I talked to the G/F...make sure she wanted to wait a lil bit before we planned on getting a house together or married) Went back to pick it up ----SOLD.... I was driving out of the lot when a semi-pulled in with another EB coupe on the back, all the options I wanted but no polished wheels so the swapped them to Triple chrome, signed the papers and happy ever since!!!!

So basically 2 vette's prior to my baby being driven in!!! A min later I would of purchased a camaro SS.

If I count the classifieds, Auto trader, e-bay and every car lot I ever stopped in for a B.S. session and a test drive, well I lost count a long time ago. I always wanted a GS and my wife finally said one day “why don’t you quit looking and buy one”. Man that was all it took. I had been talking and emailing a guy in Kansas City about his GS. Long story short I flew into Kansas checked out the GS and drove home (with the wife) 1400 miles. We had a great trip. The funny thing is I still keep looking, but I don’t test drive anymore..................:D

Looked at about 6 when I bought the '75 over 3 years ago. All where local to my location.
Just bought the '99 2 weeks ago, and looked at over 30 on the internet, looked at 2 of those in person and bought the 99 out of Dallas (over 800 miles away). I had no problem buying the car over the telephone and making a long distance purchase.

Searched for months to find something in my pricerange, red, auto, low miles. Wish I would've known more about a c5 but I was the first one in our group to get one and didn't know about the performance axle :nuts: If I would've waited one more year the market went down and I could've got a newer one :spanked:

Ended up using The Vette Net.
