"Unbelievable Vet ! I had a 85 Vet back in 1990, the difference between these two are like night and day ! My 2003 , 50th Anniv. vet is an Arizona vet. I bought it from a retiree that belongs to an Az. vet club. The reason he sold it was to upgrade to a C6, from another member. This vet has NEVER seen winter any kind,it doesn't leave the garage if there's any hint of bad weather. It's in MINT condition ! the pre. owner had it clear coated, it has lots of extra's installed, Exhaust system, Air intake, Short throw shifter, Michelin run flat tires, I have ALL the factory parts that came off , and ALL are like new ! This car was used as a show car in Az. It drives, handles, like a dream !"

"This car has been in the family since brand new. It was my Fathers. I have since put the Borla Extreme Exhaust on it which I highly recommend. Awesome ride. The paint is awesome for factory paint. Not just because of it belonging to my Dad but because of it being the 50th Golden Anniversary I would never sell this car."

"I love this vehicle. I've owned it for 16 years, purchased it used off of a lease with 12K miles. She is now modified and I love to get in it and take long relaxing drives. Fits 2 sets of golf clubs in the rear storage compartment (coupe). Even with the engine/HP upgrades the car get 20 MPG on average."

Beautiful Car

"I custom ordered this beautiful, 2001 Torch Red Corvette and took a Factory/Museum Delivery in Bowling Green, KY. For Corvette enthusiasts, this is a very important feature. This car is showroom quality. 4 speed automatic. Its never been in any type of accident. Its been parked in my garage under two car covers. It just turned 35,000 miles. We only used it as a toy, not a daily driver. I added a Borla Custom exhaust system. It has custom Chevrolet magnesium wheels. I put new run flat tires all around just due to the age of the tires. It has the Z-51 High Performance Suspension, 12 disc CD Changer, Premium Sound System, Black leather interior, Duel 6 Way Electric Memory Leather Seats, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Duel Glass Roof Panels, Duel Zone Air Conditioning, Heads Up Display, Floor mats, Electrochromic Mirrors, Duel Halogen Fog Lamps, High Performance Axel. I have every piece of documentation from the day I took delivery to the last oil change and smog certification."

Sitting in the driveway, waiting for my Mom to sell me........

"This car is perfect. If I didnt have to sell it for personal reasons, I would keep it forever. It drives like a dream. Perfect condition. It will get up to 30mpg on the open road."

Buy two they're cheap.

"Bought this car for 73 year old wife and she loves it. We've taken two very long road trips in it and it's joy to drive with the automatic trans, great mpg and tons of storage with the coupe hatch and compartments. The only draw back is can get expensive for some repairs. $2600 @ Dealer when the AC compressor tied up @ 16 years old. Can easily cost $900 for a full fluid change out norm maintenance every 50k miles. Don't mind spending money on a car one loves. It's been very reliable. Best trip car out there!!"
