My quest for a C3 Stingray has lead me to a couple of conclusions: Truth in advertising is as rare as hens teeth, at least at my modest price point. Some folks believe that their garden variety rust bucket is worth a mint because it's a 70s era Vette, forget about the fact that the bird cage crumbles at the touch. My search lead me to something I would liken to a barn find. Mind you, before taking a not-so-short drive I spoke to the seller and he assured me that the car ran, has always been garaged kept (yeah, right) and only has 57K original miles (cough, cough). Upon arrival, I learned that it doesn't run (seller: It needs a shot of ether in the carb, and oh yeah, did you bring spare gas?). Really? The seller appears to play fast and loose with the truth, imagine that. It goes downhill from there. Without the benefit of having it up on a lift for closer inspection, it appears to accident free. Unfortunately, there are two many unknowns and I certainly don't trust anything the seller has to say. I'm guessing a "reasonable" offer on my part would be met with deaf ears. I'm still on the fence about an making an offer, leaning towards nah. I'm a sucker for a resto, so I have to remind myself that I no longer have a garage and the required tools. Sourcing this restoration will likely prove expensive.
