    Default Why Texas

    Is there a reason why whenever I search for Corvettes Texas seems like it has the best price? I don't mind the road trip but would like to know why.

    I guess they don't need the money.

    It's probably a simple supply and demand thing.

    You'll notice that pickup trucks are very expensive in Texas relative to other places. I had my S-10 totaled there and the insurance company paid me almost 90% of its purchase price nearly 5 years after I bought it.

    I'm sure there's a correlation.

    Corvette prices are usually lower during the summer, Texas has a very long summer.

    Hey - I'm democratically offended by that!

    I agree - it is simply the law of supply and demand. Having said that - the good ones go REALLY fast down here. Those in tough shape will linger on the market.

    PS - It's not the buckshot that you need to worry about in Texas. It's almost deer season and lots of rifles need their scopes sighted in!

    Yes, lots of Vettes down here. I can drive mine with the top down 12 months out of the year. I may need the a/c running in July and the heater blowing in February but, it is fun. I have three convertibles out of four vehicles.

    What type of Vette are you looking for? I encounter people all the time who wish to sell their Corvette to other "Corvette people".

    To quote a Country and Western song: "Whiskey for my men and beer for my horses".

    Just remember she was walking when that pic was taken. Basic physics here: "A body in motion tends to stay in motion".
