Well, "game time" is getting closer. Just visited Criswell today to go over the final numbers on my '02 EB which should be built in a little over 2 weeks.

It is interesting that while they have committed in writing, to my May deal of $1,500 off of MSRP, they now tell me that no one else will pay less than at least MSRP for the Z06. I guess next year they will do this with the Anniversary coupes and Verts - they tell me they have a waiting list of over 40 for those cars already! Meanwhile, another Chevy dealer much closer to me has an '01 Black Z06 that they say they will not sell for under MSRP. Pricing out there is crazy. But then, next county over from me, regular gas is 33 cents more a gallon...

Anyway, I will be financing about 60 % of the purchase price. I have checked out both E-Loan and PeopleFirst on the net, and rates are similar. Anyone have any experience with either of these lenders?

Thanks...

Blue, I did E-LOAN for about 25 LARGE a couple of vettes ago. The bank draft was Fedexed on my door step within 48 hours, at below the publishied rates at the time[CREDIT RATING INFLUENCES RATE]. I never used the draft and wrote a personal check instead. Seemed like great service though. I believe that Bank of America now owns them. FUBU69/LES

Both are quoting reasonable rates on the web. Check out a Credit union if you can gain access. Many auto loans front-end load the interest so if you pay off early there is little or no saving. Your first payments all go to pay the interest and not the principal.

A credit union computes interest on the remaining balance. If you pay the loan early, you can save quite a bit of money. My credit union rates are actually less than e-loan. Check it out. jerboa /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

I did the www.carfinance.com. It took about a day and I was financed for about 50K. The process was simple except one problem. Kerbeck Corvettes would not take a bank draft. Carfinance said no problem and they wire transferred the money right into their account. i will go throught them the next time. They also had the lowest rates that I could find anywhere.

Thanks to everyone who responded. Unfortunately the credit union that is available to me is not very competitive. Right now PeopleFirst has the best rates providing you do an online application and allow them to do an automated payment from your account.

Unless I find something better, i will go with them...

If you have a home you might consider a home equity loan which will cost a fair amount less after tax benefits, assuming the closing costs aren't too high.

I used this service for a ford f250 and it was painless as well as the rates being great and before I closed on the deal the rates went down and they followed them. Nice people.

I used PeopleFirst for my car loan and they were great. I filled out the application on-line on a Saturday morning and had the check at my door on Monday morning via Fed-x. Now that's quick! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
They've been great to deal with and I'll always use them if I can't find better rates locally.

Thanks VetteSpace! That is reassuring, because they seem to have the best rates. As soon as I know for sure that my 7/30 TPW is still good to go, I will fill out their online app.
