Might be selling my Z...

Sad - but Maggie and I are looking at land in Tennessee, something to build on to retire to.

When I filled up the Z a couple weeks ago, I notice in my fuel log (yea, I'm a stats geek), the last time I fueled up was Nov 11 of last year.

I have a fellow at work that has 1st gen Camaros, and he is wanting my car pretty bad.

There are only two other C5 Zs available in the area, and both are asking over 20k.

I am thinking 17,500 for mine - even though I have a lot of top-line mods.

Sad to think about, but we will still have Maggie's 99 coupe with all the bells and whistles....

Anyway - wanted to share with my only REAL Corvette friends.

Bright side, I really like the idea of a mid-engine Corvette, based on the spy pictures coming around; maybe that will be my retirement present.....

best

Hi Andy -

While it's sad to think of you letting your Z06 go, your thought process is logical & practical. I wish you the best with your retirement plans.

I'm in the same boat - planning to retire and move to Va next year, and letting my Vette go would expedite the plan. However, every time I get ready to pull the trigger, my heart gets in the way.

Take care,
Susan

Thanks, Friends.

I got the Z all detailed up last night - man that is a nice car. ;^)

I will swap the oil fill cap that Didier (Burner) gifted me when he was in my town - that'll go on Maggies coupe.

Once we get moved to Tennessee, then, if we decided, could look at a new mid-engine car once they come out. Silver lining and all....

best

The guy looked at the car and drove it.

Said "it's all you said it was!" - he was very enthusiastic.

He then told me he is going on vacation for two weeks and would get back to me.

That may have been a mistake - it sure was a beautiful morning driving that freshly detailed Z into work....

best
