So here it is:

It is a pretty car and in really good shape. My FIL brought it down last night. I took all the pics this evening and will put the for sale ad together this week. I registered at corvette forum and will post it there first.
I'm going to list it at $14,500 and see if there is any interest. That's probably on the high side, but i'm trying to minimize my FIL losses on it.

Can't put my finger on it, but something about the picture you posted looks Pshoped, Josh. (maybe because the tires are on pavement)

I thought the same thing but knowing josh I just thought he must have an incredible camera.

Beautiful car and the color combo is so fitting for a father in law or should I say a gentleman a generation higher than us ... my dad had a 2008 Corvette in the same color combo ... sadly he only got to enjoy it for a little over a year before he passed ...

Josh she is a beauty and between the color combo and the manual I think you'll get a quick sale !!

Doesn't hurt to try, but that is solid C5 territory.

Make sure you have a pic of the options sticker.

My father keeps saying he wants a c7 in this very color combo.

@ bren - yep that's my fear. I think if i wanted it to sell quick I would have to price it close to $10k

@AF - That expensive camera was my blackberry, about the worst camera you can get your hands on. the color is sharp on that car, I'm hoping it sucks in some rich old guy who wants to relive the '90s.

Here is the album of all the photos from today. i need to edit some, but it will give you an idea:

The options sticker should be under the arm rest lid.

At that price, I'm not really sure why he doesn't drive it and enjoy it...

Earlier today I was going to post that I really liked the color combo.

You can get a C5 Z06 for not much more than that, too.
