    The kid can sit in the passenger seat. So really, there's no room for the wife, which is fine...

    Nice looking Corvette. Less than 5k miles per year put on it, this was somebody's summer weekend car, very nice. That should indicate that it's in good shape, which I imagine is what you're thinking already. I don't really have anything useful to say...

    I figured you meant TSS's car seat

    Just kidding. I agree, looks like a nice vette. Do the usual checks, and you should be fine.

    Make sure you get a good look at the interior. I saw no interior pics on that ad... that always raises ??? in my head when certain angles are left out of the pics.

    Nice ,FRC. It was latter replaced by the Z06 in 2001. I had a 99 coupe , excellent car. Very few problems. The price seems a little high though. I would offer 15500.00 and go from there.

    2002 C5 - M6 - Blue
    2000 Z28 - A4 - Pewter

    I'm still learning myself, I know the C5s are prone to ground issues, something like 12 or 13 grounds through-out the car. Of course, the wheel-hop is there. $340 plus shipping will take care of most of it, supposedly, I'll be able to tell ya next week. New transbrace in mine is what I got, it pissed me off bad enough. I haven't read anything specific on the 99s, just C5s in general (with the exception of the Zs).

    I agree, I was thinking 15k for it would be more appropriate. So the FRC is everything Z06 less the engine?

    OH Shit, it's only got a tape deck :ugh:
