WTT: Fully Built Corvette for Newer Tacoma

Well I think I've had enough of the fast car seen & am now looking for something that would just be more practical for me. I'm between a Tacoma, Tundra or Avalanche but leaning towards the Tacoma since I won't really be hauling much more than my dirt bike and would like something a little better on fuel. I'm looking for a 4 door, long bed, 4x4. Here's some specs on what I I've got.

2000 Silver Coupe just turned 40k miles (all mods have about 17k on them and were all purchased brand new, over $16k in parts alone). Stock on outside w/ the exception of Black C6 Z06 wheels & blacked out lights. Car is a solid 9/10. Needs absolutely nothing. This car has not been beat on. It's only been down the track 3 times with a best time of 11.31. This is a proven 10 second package with good traction. It also has perfect street manners. I drive it 40/miles per day back and forth to work and it runs perfectly. I'm located just outside Tampa, FL.

New Cash Price - $21K

Vararam VR-B2 w/ Power Duct
Vengeance Racing Ported & Painted FAST 90
Ported & Polished LS2 TB
ARP Head Studs
TFS 215s Milled to 58cc
Harland Sharp Roller Rockers
Vindicator II Cam
ASP Pulley
LS2 Oil Pump
LS2 Timing Chain
Dynatech Supermaxx LT's w/ High Flow Cats
Corsa Indy Exhaust w/ GTR Tips
RPM Level V 4L60E w/ Vig 3600
DTE Level IV w/ 3.90's & Brace

How is it a proven 10 second car when your best time was 11.32?

He said: This is a proven 10 second package with good traction....

So he believes his upgrades + better traction would yield a 10 sec run.

Nothing fishy about it, I just prefer a targa.

That pass was with a set of 17" DR's running about 27lbs of pressure and stock wheels up front.

Because a 11.31 will spank a C6 Z06.

Nice car!

Thanks guys. I bought it in May '09 with 24,000 miles and haven't had to do anything other than change the oil in it. I do have it for sale locally as well as on corvetteforum & ls1tech, I just get the itch every year of so for something new and when I trade I save in taxes. I don't have any time slips but I do have this video of the pass.

Can't figure out how to embed the vid on this site but it's post 3 over on ls1tech.

http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/vehicl...l#post13706955

And yes this car will put a good smacking on a C6Z.

I would not buy a Vette with out a targa top either. Good looking C5!

Nice car!
For the mods in this car it would spank a stock Z06, but I still prefer the Z06.

Still a sexy car, bump for the seller. I've always loved vettes, and will eventually have one someday.

Thanks, yeah these motors respond great to mods. But you're right, the LS7's respond even better. lol.

Hard to sell a Corvette...boat...or motorcycle nowadays, with the economy most don't have the disposable cash for lux toys.

I have many friends over on corvetteforum and they are having a hard time selling them there even...that site was always the mainstay for selling a good clean Vette. I know, I sold 2 of them there myself...and quick...back in 2006.

I thought about selling my last C6 there...but I got a great deal on the front end buying a new leftover '09, so I was able to trade it in and not take it in the shins too badly.

You may just look into trading it in to a dealer for a new Tacoma.

Good luck
