It's not a Z06.

C5s are available quite cheap now, right? I've seen quite a few kids around campus with C5s. I just assumed they were rich kids (there's a kid on campus with a Ferrari 430 Scuderia, as well as one with a Gallardo LP560 Spyder) until I checked the value on non-Z06 C5 going on autotrader and such.

Very attainable. Surprisingly; more attainable financially than a decent Prowler... which is what I'd personally rather have. Looks much cooler, and every white kid and their father seems to have a Corvette nowdays.

they go for 20-30k commonly. if you can buy a prowler now, do it, and put it in vacuum-sealed bag in your garage. those things are going to be showboat collectors items in 20 years.

Prowler was nothing when it came out and it's nothing still. It will also continue to be nothing. Sorry its the truth. A v6 from a chrysler concorde mated to a 4 speed auto in a "retro" body. It is two cylinders and one IRS away from a PT Cruiser.

I saw one at a customer's house somewhat recently. It was this bitchy woman, she had one. Was quite proud of it. Ugly things. Can't believe people were paying close to 50k for those things when they were new and i can't believe anyone would want one for more than 10 today.

In 50 years when the other 14,999 of them are crushed, the last remaining one on barret jackson MAY sell for close to MSRP.
