I'm from CA and the prices here are outrageous! I put in a deposit for a 2002 which states if the dealer does not get an allocation or cannot deliver a Z06 with my preferences, the deal is off. The offer is also at MSRP. I received a lot of gripe on the C5-Corvette.com forum about paying MSRP (they thought I was a dealer!) but I've already got the money earmarked and I'm ready to own one of these bad boys. I just need to dump my 71 Chevelle SS!
