In my hometown, an enterprising fellow has built a huge treehouse downtown, where he actually lives.
His creation is always changing. One year, he even attached an airplane to create additional living space.
As a budding journalist and a long-time Corvette enthusiast in 1978, one of the first stories I ever wrote for my hometown paper was about the new 1978 Corvette Indy 500 Pace Car that was sitting on the showroom floor of our Chevy dealer.
Selling a C4 Corvette can be difficult but it doesn’t have to be if you subscribe to our proven method of selling unwanted Corvettes on Craigslist. This somewhat controversial sales technique is guaranteed to get people talking about your Corvette (maybe even a blog post) and it might even make the telephone ring.
How does our selling technique work? I’m glad you asked!
We call this a Corvette barn find, but the truth of the matter is that this 1981 Corvette wasn’t parked in a barn. Instead, it’s been stashed behind a lady’s garage since 1996. This craigslist ad shows the damage that can be done to a Corvette from letting it sit outside for years and years. In the end, this one is worth only $900 as a parts car.
Selling a used car these days seems to be riskier than ever, even when the seller does everything by the book.
Just ask Michael and Christy Childers of Hardin County, Ky.
The couple recently decided to sell their 2010 Corvette convertible on Craigslist and thought they had hit paydirt after just a few weeks.
It’s baaaaaack! In case you missed the opportunity to buy this Corvette when it was being offered at auction by Insurance Auto Auctions, as we reported on March 10, 2014, it’s now back on the market.
Where do 1970s Corvettes go to die?
Apparently New London, Connecticut, if this Craigslist ad is any indication.
