"This car will corner effortlessly, strong off the line and the C5 is the best body style to me by far."

"Your rating for sale price is extremely low. Two older and many more miles have sold for 4-5,000 more than your quote. Everything is all original, including the run flat tires."

89,000 miles and like new still.

"I have owned numerous C3's and C4's but the C5 is absolutely the best. I could of bought some Used C6's when I purchased my C5 for the same or lower price but they did not hold a candle to the 99 C5's Appearance, performance and handling."

Rare ond Rorty...

"The FRC (Hardtop) is really undervalued. This will truly be the only real classic C5. Not many made. I recently drove my car from Oregon to Florida. No problems and averaged 32mpg. Very comfortable. A PORSCHE would have you in hospital for 2 weeks after a trip like this. Car is just a pleasure to drive. NO DRAMA! FRCs are not fast like a ZO6 - But they are quick. All the car value sites need to re-evaluate this model."
