This past Saturday I traded in my 1998 Corvette for a 2005 Corvette and I couldn't be happier! I started searching for a C6 back in the end of March and figured I was going to be looking for probably a good 2 to 3 months or more, since I was so picky about what I wanted, but the right car came up in the first week of looking! It's Lemans Blue with the Steel Gray interior (which is a lighter gray that was only available in 2005), 6 speed manual, NAV, magnetic selective ride control, polished wheels, transparent removable roof, Bose stereo, heated seats, heads up display, and only 57,000 miles on it. It's in really good shape, not 100% mint but a 9 out of 10 in my books. The paint had some swirls and scratches in it, but I brought it back to life this morning with my high speed buffer. I did not know what kind of oil the previous owner had put in it, or when he had the oil change done, so even though the OLM was reading 97%, I decided to change the oil anyways. The filters I had on hand for my LS1 Corvette fit this LS2 Corvette thankfully, and I already had more than enough M1 5w30 on hand too (my LS1 took 6.5 quarts of oil but the LS2 only needs 5) Here she is!
