    Wanting a Corvette

    Been an fbody owner for the past 7 years and i love the it. But i think i need something different. Before i bought my formula hawk last year , i was looking at a couple of corvettes but to tell you the truth i guess i didnt want to go into a field i dont know that much about. Long story short i need some web sites that show the difference in corvette models because this time i am getting a vette but i want to do as much research as possible before emptying my wallet.

    Thanks in advance

    The Corvette Forum is a great place and also will tell you just about anything you want to know about them.

    Knowing how much money you have to spend on a vette, will help narrowing down your search field
    Under $30K, you can easily pick up a Z06 ($25-30K)

    Research a Corvette purchase

    For research, Corvette Magazine ( has had a couple of issues that review each Corvette series beginning with the 1953 right up to 2007 (C1 series through C6 series). That would be a good place to start so you will have some general ideas. The magazine's series of articles gives you a pretty good take on price, from one that needs work right up to pristine condition. How much do you want to spend? Right now, you can get a late C4, say '95 or '96 at really good prices. They have good technology and refurbishing will not put you in the poor house! I have a '95 coupe with the LT1 base motor with a 6-spd; I am really pleased with it. I got it for about $12K a few years back. For something newer, a friend just sold his low, low mileage 2001 convertible for $25K. So, there are good deals out there. Of course, if you have $50K, go get a new one. If you put in the time, you could really do well. Good luck.
