2000 C5 Vette

Postby Jarrad » Thu Jun 12, 2008 9:34 pm

Hi all, anyone interested in a 2000 C5?

Now i'm not sure if this is a good deal, ill post it anyway. And i know some of you might think its dodgy to go America > Japan > Australia. It's how my car travelled, and I ended up getting a bargain on mine since I did it this way.

From what I saw on carsales.com.au, this could be quite the bargain. Car looks very clean and this is the mob that I imported my corvette through, and they treated me well (informed me about 5 or 6 times that the cars i asked for them to inspect for me were rusty pieces of sh*t and werent worth buying).

Thought i'd post anyway, feel free to tell me its a rip. I wouldn't know much!

'The quick and the dead' mate...

MAYBE, but I note it said "no MAGOR accident damage" - indicating to me that it HAS sustained SOME past damage...never an ideal thing.

I'm pretty sure all imports through j-spec say that. Damage is rated by the auction grade and this was 4, which is pretty good. Mine was 3.5, meaning some work needed. They usually report damage repair, i think its just to cover their own asses if its not discovered by them.

the thing is, with the stupid prices of falcon gt's at the present i can only see the south affrican gt's going UP in value...
for some strnge reason people want a gt....me included.
sure they were nice, fast etc etc IN THEIR DAY, but christ i really cant see the value in them.
there must be more gt FAKERS in the country than ford ever made originally...

Best thing about any vette is you know it is a true item :o
