TTAC Forum Aurum: Corvette Show for Crazy Dough
A Tampa-area man knows how to sell his 1993 Corvette like a boss — with girls and guns and stuff. Our own Chris Tonn is talking about the car in the forums.
This Craigslist entry doesn’t detail the 1993 Chevrolet Corvette “Show Car” all that much, but it does make up for the lack of specifics with an abundance of “experience.”
Like aforementioned chicks and trophies and guns.
(H/T to Murilee Martin who should be scored on the official’s sheet with an assist.)
The automatic convertible, presumably with some miles on it, has won more than 20 “BEST in SHOW” competitions, according to the listing.
According to the photos, the car has seats and seatbelts, four wheels (five if you count the steering wheel), a five asterisk rating and probably some familiarity with whiskey rock in its cassette deck.
For only $26,000, it could be yours. Or, you know, about three times what the car is worth.
Over priced, but it looks like a pretty nice car. The body kit and hosed-down-with-Armor-All look bothers me more than the chicks and guns. Always thought C4's look better bone-stock. Never seen a wing, wheels, or other add-on that made them look any better.
1. All guns are always loaded (fail) 2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy (fail) 3. Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target (fail) 4. Be sure of your target and what lies beyond it (fail) Shirt (fail), Bunny sticker (fail), body kit (fail), gold chain (fail)…. Just so much fail in one ad and story. A record for TTAC.
I call crack pipe, too much tacky, and the AK is a true metaphor for this Vette, crude, cheaply made and finished, but reasonably effective and reliable. I prefer an AR, better finished, better ergonomics, and equally good performance and reliability as long as you do some minimal maintenance.
Give that dude a Navy cap to complete the stereotype.
