koons was bad in 1991 when i was looking at a zr1 and i found out in may they hadn't changed a bit. what i don't get is that koons ford at sevens corners has a totally different attitude. never bother with koons chev. they give gm a bad rep. i even complained to gm about it.
dudley martin in manassas was friendly and i was told the owner doesn't think adm is right. they offered to order a 2006 for me.
i'm now sour on a corvette because i can't get what i want, the price keeps going up, and its too much hassle.
i just as soon pay 20k more and get a porsche. after all, this is the dc area. a corvette will always only be an overpriced chevrolet! a porsche says the tax payers are feeding you well.

There is no law that says people have to buy from a local dealer. There are lots of brokers and dealers that offer much better deals with a minimum investment of time required.
Most people in business understand supply and demand. The internet connects you to all the markets in the US. Ebay has 20+ new or slightly used C6s for sale. People don't have to be some local dealer's victim.
At the end of the day the Corvette aficionados that hang around here really don't care what car people end up with. So if some people have neighbors that would be more impressed by a German car then go for it.

Golfing buddy is looking to cut a deal on an '05 coupe. He's thinking of driving from SW OH all the way the Atlantic City (I guess that's where this dealer is) and back. Has anyone bojught from them and are they really that good? Just curious!

I only have web feedback and the contacts have been made through a Corvette specific site so can't say for sure how they respond to those over the phone or who drop by. From the http://www.kerbeck.com/ site they have lots of verts but very few coupes left from the '05 production that they are offering big discount on. The Coupe inventory is larger than what they say gets the big discount, so it's all about negotiation. Personally I've loved getting the deal set over the web and then only doing paper work in the dealer showroom, being held hostage when they are trying to squeeze the last nickle is really a pain in my book.

Congrats, take deep breaths and practice smiling to loosen up the muscles because you are going to be doing a lot of smiling when you start driving that vert.

that's right...6 weeks and 2,000 miles later and I haven't even thought about breaking my smile. The looks and attention is awesome and I love the comments that keep coming from everywhere. Only one draw back: Every young kid on the road, whether they are driving a honda, mustang or mercedes wanna race me. While I've been tempted, I'm to old for doing stupid things like that anymore.

the wife loves it when the young boys are grinning and point out the Vette while getting in or out of the MB or BMW. It's almost like performing a public service and letting kids know there is a 'Dark Side', from the perspective of their parents.
That's where the after market exhaust and x-pipe come in handy.

Zowie--I was just looking at Kerbeck and they had a 2005 Coupe for $39.9K or $5k off a Vert. Wow!! Who says size doesn't matter? lol It does in the car business.
