hello fellow members. i have been on this site for about 2 years now, wishing and hoping to one day be the proud owner of a corvette. that day came yesterday as i flew down to the Ft. Worth area and looked her over and drove her home to odessa(FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS) ,tx. i found the car sat. morning on ebay. its a 04 ms/blk Z,w/bsm, chrome Z06 wheels and it only had 4979 miles on the clock. i called the dealership and made an offer and surprisingly, they excepted $41,500, that includes tt&l and all doc. fees. i feel like it was a good deal and was happy when he said they would do it. so here is where the real interesting things start happening. i looked at the car when i arrived at the dealer. looked great. couldnt believe it was soooo clean. not a scratch on her. no dents , dings, swrils or any kind and no curb rash(u must read on) on the wheels. so i take the car out for a spin on the loop and it was awesome . sooooooo quick i couldnt believe that some people add chargers to there Z. so i was doing 120mph in fourth then shut her down. the dealer said he has never been on a demo like that before. . thats what there made for was my response. so we go to his office, i do some paper work. after that, we had to go too another part of the dealership for more paper work. instead of me driving he insisted that he drove. i said that was fine. i mean, all we were going to do is weaving throughout the parking lot right?!?!? so instead of paking in a parking spot, my salesman decided to park next to a curb.....yea i think you guys know where this is going. he curbed my Z . i just couldnt believe it. i was in totall shock and thinking . of course he appologized but i wouldnt have it. i asked him what he was going to do, and his response was he would knock of a $100 so i could have it buffed out. i couldnt believe he insulted me like that. i told him he was full of it and i was going to have my buddy pick me back up and leave. then he asked me what he could do to make this deal happen. i told him he can purchase another wheel and have it shipped to me, or knock $750 off. well, after some real hard thinking on his part(sarcasim) he knocked off the $750. after all that was taking care off, i was off back to odessa. loving every minute off my drive, up until i was pulled over about half way home. i was thinking man this is . i wasnt speeding, or driving carelessly(at that moment in time anyways, haha) so i didnt know what the hell he was doing pulling me over. so the dps officer asked me to get out of the car for safety reasons. he proceeded by asking the obvious question " do you know why i pulled you over?" the answer, no sir. well it turns out that he was pulling me over because there were no license plate on the front of my car. i told him that i just bought it and he let me go w/ a warning. he wanted me to make sure that i put that plate on asap. i said " i will". i was really thinking " ihope that i can hold out until sept. 1 where the new law takes place here in tx" well, i thought i would let you guys know that i FINALLY bought me a Z. and i am loving every minute of it . thanks all and sorry it was so long.

Hey, congrats on the new ride. How bad is the wheel? Maybe you can take to a chrome shop or wheel shop and get it buffed out?

Congrats on the Z!!! It's a hoot every time I drive it. The cool car I always wanted when I was younger but was afraid of insurance. Enjoy it, one of life's rewards.

You might check the wheel when you pull it and find out if it's OEM chromed or aftermarket ... some are from places like China.
If the set is good you should be able to do a core exchange with a vendor of that make.
Enjoy! :jammin:

Congrats Bro. Great write up. By the way, when you ride in, or get to drive, a blown Z06, you'll understand why we add Superchargers...
