Age? They're older cars now. Not as many on the road. Not as popular as the newer ones.

I have been wondering the same thing. In the city and at car shows there are few C4 Corvettes , I see more C3s One thing I notice, when the gov had the buyout of used cars. Was it a $4000 credit on a new car. Many perfectly good cars including C4 corvettes were destroyed because the resale on them was not as much as the credit. There may have been more corvettes destroyed than we know. Also replacement electronics for the C4 can be hard to find where as the C3 has little or no electronics. Anyone have thoughts on my assumptions? I also have notice the prices of C4s has risen some.

Funny you say that, we made a 4 hour trip from home earlier this week and saw 4 along the way. One was being driven by a high school student, as he was still in it, parked in a school parking lot waiting for school to start.

I'll add my thoughts here. The Corvette Club I belong to has 90+ Vettes. Of that, there were around 3 or 4 C4s and one member is selling his due to age issues. I think there are more C7s followed by C6s than any other model at this time.

The car or the owner? ;LOL
They are moving into a seniors apartment and can only have 1 vehicle from what I was told. I think it was getting to the point where he was having issues getting in and out of the Vette. Shame because I think he bought it new.
