    Thanks

    I presume you mean the sequence number on the VIN - it is 531.

    Man alive that's a good collection of vettes! Just curious, how popular are corvettes in Turkey? Are they hard to get? Are the prices similar to US prices? Again, Welcome & congrats on your vettes!

    Thanks for the welcome and comments on my cars. I do not have photos available for all but I will post them as I make them available. Please find below 62 Fuelie, 64 Coupe and 71 LT-1 photos.

    You may also like to take a look at my Youtube video at

    This is how it was about 6 months ago. It is almost complete now waiting for bits and pieces from Corvette America:



    This is my 64 Coupe:



    Same during a Time Speed Distance Rally - we have 3 TSD Classic Car Rallies organized in our country every year.

    Hello Don,

    Corvettes are popular but extremely difficult to obtain due to the incredible tax rates we have. We are also the champions of the world in gas prices - it was on the news yesterday. I hope you are sitting, it is $ 10.21 to the gallon.

    To own one, you are looking at astronomic prices mainly caused by the import duties and further taxes - if you were to import a corvette now, you need to pay 200% tax. Plus of course you have to add the car making corvette ownership in Turkey 3 times more expensive than the US. So this fact naturally inflates the prices of cars already existing in the country.

    See below an outrageous ad for a 68 and there is nothing special about the car:
