Hey all,

Well I just picked up my 2002 Z06!! I'm in heaven!!! What an amazing ride!! I can't say enough!! I know it sounds crazy but this has been my dream car for 4 years!! I'm not wealthy, so I had to wait until I could get a used one for around $30,000

Thanks to all who responded to my weekend thread " advice on buying a Z06 out of warranty". I was a little hesitant on buying one out of warranty but with your help I was reassured.

If you missed the thread, I was looking at an 02 with 29,000 miles on it, in near mint shape. Asking price $31,900 The only thing I noticed was that the clutch was engaging kind of high. I went to Chevrolet and got its service record. The previous owner has already had the 30,000 mile maintenance done including the changing of the transmission and rear end oil. The engine was also decarboned. It also has newish tires. All in all, the only thing I see that will need replacing is the clutch within the next year. At this point it is not slipping or chattering, just engaging real high.

Can a clutch be adjusted??

Anyways I ended up talking the dealership down to $29,900.00. I think I got a pretty great deal considering the resale value of these cars. Kelly blue book had it worth $38,800 retail.

I Noticed there are quite a few members that are from in and around the Tampa Bay area. Is there any local Z06/ Corvette clubs around? I'm also interested in finding out about local activities!!

Thanks again in advance for your replies!!
