Welcome to Corvettes in Michigan, the best place on the web to learn about how to find, buy, and sell used Corvettes for sale in Michigan and in YOUR STATE!
We've been Corvette owners and enthusiasts for more than 10 years. If you've been in the market for used Corvettes before, you know how frustrating and difficult it can be to find a REALLY GREAT used Corvette -- especially one in as good condition as the seller led you to believe. Know what we mean?
We've been shocked by Corvettes with poorly installed MODIFICATIONS. We've seen Corvettes DAMAGED because their owners didn't know how to drive or care for their supercar. And we've discovered Corvettes that had a lot more WEAR AND TEAR than people let on.
So when we went looking for used Corvettes for sale in Michigan and across the country, we looked for a better way to find that perfect car. We narrowed down the options in a logical, repeatable way so that we would have the best chance of picking a great car. Here's what we looked for:
We only looked at cars with just a few owners -- no more than one every 7 years -- it was more likely that we could get all the service records. If you look at cars with more owners, the wear and tear goes up substantially while your ability to track it decreases even more.
We asked owners to certify that they were safe drivers. If they couldn't, then we moved on. Safer drivers keep better cars. You can do this by asking owners for a copy of their Secretary of State records that shows their names, address, and license status (with the license numbers removed for privacy).
We only looked at used Corvettes for sale in Michigan with unmodified engines because there was no way to determine if changes would cause long-term damage. Other modifications that are less risky include exhaust upgrades, small scale interior changes (like cosmetic upgrades), swapped-out wheels and tires, and small scale exterior changes (like lights and ground effects).
We only looked at cars with less than 7,500 miles/year. We wanted Corvettes that were second vehicles for their owners. This is the most obvious way that you can reduce the chance that you will buy an overly-used vehicle, but put mileage in context of all the other factors listed here for a complete portrait.
We refused to waiver on this point -- there is no easy way to evaluate how well damaged cars have been put back together. Unless you specialize in restoring wreaked Corvettes, you really must stay away from cars in accidents. You may think you are getting a great deal, but the risk factors are extremely high with damaged vehicles that you will experience catastrophic failure of one or more systems.
After all this evaluation, you know what we found? Our narrowed-down pool of prospects turned out to be better cars, with more responsible owners, and GREAT VALUES for the price. It worked so well, we thought we would do the same for other (to be) Corvette owners.
