2000 C5 Corvette, 6speed, black/black, $12,750 (Possible trades?)

2000 Chevy Corvette C5
345hp LS1 with 6speed manual trans
104k miles.

Originally a southern car, I brought up from North Carolina, has never seen snow.

First off, car is a GREAT driver, but it is no show car. It's 12 years old and has 104k miles on it.

Having said that, this car is mechanically in excellent shape. It runs up and down the road excellent (my parents have a 2001 with 30k miles on it, and mine not only rides better, but it handles better and doesn't wander like most of the other C5s I've driven).

Best (and only) mods: Borla cat-back exhaust system sounds AWESOME. This car sounds the way a Corvette should. You can hear it, and people hear it coming, but it's not loud at highway speeds cruising. Also has a fixed-headlight conversion

Car is averaging 23.3mpg combined highway/city right now, and gets almost 30mpg on the highway.

Front tires are new, rears have lots of tread left. Wheels are new OEM chrome Corvette wheels bought a few years back. Brakes are new(er) front and rear.

What's wrong with the car? A few little things, all cosmetic. 99% of people would (will) never notice them. I'm just picky.

The only "major" issue (to me) is that the front fascia has a LOT of small stone chips from a lot of driving and mileage. It always looks like I drove it through a mosquito/bug pit.

Ahh... That's about it, I guess. Price is $12,750 firm. Don't need (or really want) to sell.

Will consider TJs and nice YJs + cash or maybe a F250/F350 7.3l CREW cab. No other cars, trucks, motorcycles, or guns.

Will add a pic later today. Forgot to snap a pic this morning.

About as much family room as a Corvette.... unless they ride in the bed... Good luck.
