Default Carfax value of my C5Z

Just got an email notice from CarFax telling me that the current value of my 2002 Corvette Z06 is $9,240. With a clickable link to sell it.

Yeah, THAT is going to happen......

I actually took the vette out this past Saturday. I had a headache earlier and driving the car always seems to get rid of headaches for me. I was traveling on route 98 and in the 60 mph zone, a couple of yahoos were driving 50 mph. Road was wide open ahead, so I put my blinker on, dropped it down into fourth gear, and stretched the turbos a little bit. Been quite a while since I have pushed the car any, and honestly, it startled me. I had forgotten about the acceleration that car can do under boost. I could swear that it felt like the front end lifted up a bit, because the steering wheel got REALLY loose feeling. Probably just my imagination, but still....

Not sure how much 93 octane gasoline is costing now, but I can't really drive it much less than I already have been. I sure don't want the gasoline in the tank to get real old though. But not really sure I want to swallow paying $5+ per gallon of gasoline, neither. Regular was already up to $4.29 at the local Shell station in Crawfordville, last time I looked. It might be higher now, since it seems to be rising daily.

Anyway, no chance at all I will be driving it over the next week or two until the rains stop, the dirt road dries up a bit, and it gets the mud ruts scraped off of it.

I swear sometimes I think about selling that car, but after taking it out for a ride, that idea just goes right out the window. So I really should drive it more often. I'll have to check, but I might have that 500 mile break-in period for the new clutch behind me by now.

Well, I put 243 miles on the C5Z in 2021.

Maybe that new clutch is broken in by now.

It would have been cool to see what HP that motor is making on the Dyno. Jeff Hagaman had a 427 LS motor in his CTS V that dyno'd at 1704 HP with twin turbo's so the potential is there easily for over 1000!
