less than $200 for 24 hours of drive time??

Postby steves87 » Fri Apr 20, 2007 3:02 pm

in august im going state side for a short while with the mrs. we are going to the NCM and doing a few other 'Vette' related things along the way. just the other day i was organising our hire car situation and thought id check the chances of getting a Vette.... you know just for fun.
Well here's the question, it works out that i can hire a C6 convertible for 180ish bucks for 24 hours with ensurance and all included.... but depends on availability.... do you guys think this is worth it?
:?:
personally i do... but the mrs.... :evil: :evil: :evil: need i say more.

Well my main argument is that the trip on a whole, is already costing the same as a new (new to me that is) C4 in very tidy condition.

so whats another 200 bucks on top.... i tell ya, to deprive me of anoher Vette :x- :-x

HELL YES!!!

That's a GREAT price and would be one of the very few chances anyone here in Australia would get to have a wheel at a C6!

good thought MAXX, im definitely doing that with some C5's at the used car lots (if i can convince them) but i wasnt sure weather GM dealers over there are the same as GM dealers over here....
in West Aus you have to ALMOST sign on the dotted line before they give you a test drive and ever since some hoons took off with an ss commodore, they have been extra cautious about test drives.... i used to test drive vehicles for fun on weekends :oops: :-D

nah, we are driving from LA to Yoesimity to San francisco. getting a plane to Canada/Vancouver, bit of a tour up there, then back down to Nashville (after passing through Chicago) via plane.
driving up to Bowling Green, then back to Nashville. plane to New York then another tour/through Canada and East coast US cities.... im not driving that leg though.
unfortunately we miss most of the central and south east US continent.... i will be going back to visit those areas in the future though :o

I was actually going to go to Eric's place first, then rent a car and drive from there to MAXX WRENCH to suprise Donnie, the thing is if he didnt know me by sight, he'd know exactly who i was as soon as i opened my mouth!!! :-x :-o

I wont be far off coming over, just no dates set yet. Around August is looking reasonably good. :o

As Steve suspected; its definitely NOT that easy over here Maxxy;
Even (formerly) 'Corvette Queensland' didn't have ONE C6 available for a test drive when we were there, as ALL had been pre-purchased by people in South Africa.
