I decided I can't live without the new Corvette so a car or two need to go to make garage space. My Spyder is a 2002 Beck build that is in great shape and runs perfectly. I have the convertible top and toneau cover. I changed the shifter out to a cable shift. It is the big dual carb engine ( 2456 if I remember right ) and disc brakes. It has about 8000km on it and is located in Casper, WY. I'd need a little under $30k. It is registered as a 1955 Porsche.

I'm waiting for the convertible version which is promised a little later.  Can't beat 8-speed paddle shifter and 495 hp!  Yeah - I'd like a manual but not getting any younger and my wife would drive it if automatic.  Seems a bargain for just under $60k - will see how quickly the options increase that price.  Don't need more HP or better handling - but a radio, heater and AC would be nice.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 convertible

The very base model actually has leather seats for under $60k. It should be a screamer. I have a supercharged 6th gen Camaro that might find a new home instead of the Spyder. We are still 8 months  or more out from the Vettes being available anyways. Is high $20's about right for a nearly perfect Beck?

Might even fetch mid 30’s.

I love them, and I have not even seen one in person.

Me too....I have been waiting for a mid engine  Corvette for years..... I have a Cayman and it is a joy to drive.... I like everything about the C8.....mine will be the base model with no options in black or a color that will mute all the busy crap…. a poor mans McClaren F1....happy birthday to me.....

The kid next door just got a C7 (he has hardly been in Medicare more than a few years) so I have to keep up with the neighbors...

Interesting that the average new Corvette buyer is around 60 and 40% pay cash..
