RE: OT: Corvette

It isn't so cheap, they just haven't reached the reserve price yet. It will probably go into the mid $30K range before it is sold.

RE: OT: Corvette

Give it some time the price will come up.

As far as the 2 owner thing you never know. It could be because it is a lemon. Or it could be just the people that bought it purchased it as a toy or decided they could not afford it. Got to check the repair history. Growing up I had a friend whos family owned a GM dealership. You would not believe these rednecks that would come in. They would barely be able to afford clothes for their filthy kids. Yet they would purchase a new Camerao they clearly could not afford.

When I was looking for my SLK32 I was talking with a dealership. They had a BMW Z8 on the floor. It was a couple years old and was on going on its 5th owner. I was told people have been purchasing it as a toy and would just turn around and sell it when they were ready for something new. Of course this is from a dealer so who knows. One of the guys I know sold his SL65 because it hit 10k miles. He did not want to take too big a hit on the value. He also turned around and purchased another SL65.
