Best bang for the buck
July 27, 2018
People frequently gripe about the corvette interior. I find it quite comfortable and more than adequate. I suppose you could compare this car, which cost me used $10,200, with a $300,000 Ferrari and complain about the materials, but that is comparing apples and oranges. Again, cars have gotten a lot quicker in the last 18 years, but this car has plenty of power and can run away from all but a select few of the cars on the road, mostly other newer corvettes. Though I may prefer the C3 styling, my C5 convertible is a beautiful car, simultaneously sleek, muscular, and sexy. When I see it in the parking lot, I still say ’Who’s the lucky xxxxxxx that owns that car’’ My only complaint is that having purchased it used, I have a few mechanical issues that require repair, but I don’t blame that on the make or model: it is 18 years old with 111,000 miles on it. All in all, my 2000 corvette convertible is a great value: as I said in the heading, your best bang for the buck.
