New Member - looking to get educated

Hi everyone. I'm looking to purchase my first Vette. I've always loved them from afar. Probably something in the 2002-2004 range. But first I need to get educated on the different models. Any suggested links, or can anyone summarize for me?

Also, I'll probably come down from Canada to purchase one in California-likely privately rather than a dealership. Can anyone suggest any good U.S. used car websites for private sales?

Thanks for the help.

Greg,

Welcome to the Corvette Action Center!! You're sure to find all the information you need in your research.

You might want to check out Corvette Mike in Anaheim (www.corvettemike.com) or, better yet, at my location in MA!! ;) (www.corvettemikenewengland.com).

Hi Grego! :w My recommendation: C5s are the best! ;)

Also check out autotrader.com. If you want to go a tiny bit further (we're 2 hrs. from Sacramento), there are lots of great deals here in Northern Nevada, especially this time of year - gas is at an all-time high and with winter coming on, a lot of faint hearted 'Vette neophytes are dumping theirs.

Hi, Grego,
Welcome to the Corvette Action Center!

Your post indicated that you wanted to learn about the various models of Corvette offered in the early 2000s. The short answer to this is that there are three:

Coupe, Convertible and Z06 (the fixed roof coupe).

The CAC's model center has information specific to each year you were enquiring, including links to the model gallery. Take a look and see if this helps answer any questions.

2002
2003
2004

Good luck with your search!

Welcome!
Anything in the 2002-04 range would probably make you very happy.

Good luck with your search!

I think you will be very happy with that car. I have used my 2002 Z06 as a daily driver for three years. Congratulations!
