37k miles and clean California title with no accidents. Victory Red over black leather. Includes 3LT package (nav, Bose sound, heated seats, power top), Z51 package (better gear ratios, more aggressive suspension), and OEM chrome wheels. 50-state smog legal, has current CA certificate. Includes two keys, all manuals, and service record binder. Garage-kept its whole life.
This is a real find, and a car meant for a very particular buyer. Not content with the base levels of performance and involvement, the original owner specified the six-speed Tremec TR6060 manual transmission as well as the factory Z51 handling package. However, he (or she) had an unfortunate aneurysm and slipped the mouse cursor, also selecting the convertible option. This car was born for California weather and roads, so I brought it home in March 2014.
How American is this car? Its maiden voyage (with me, but its unseemly to talk about past lovers) was a thousand mile one-way journey along Route 66 from Albuquerque to San Jose. It never missed a beat or complained, just like the fine American labor force. We stopped for apple pie (McDonalds finest) along the way. Oh, and the driver profile is named MURRICA. Please keep it that way.
All good things must come to an end (except for The Simpsons, apparently) and it is time for me to help this unique vehicle find her next home. I tend to keep my weekend cars for about a year, and this ones time is just about up. Oh yeah, and my wife is pregnant with our first child. That too.
As it sits, the car has a few tasteful extras:
2012+ OEM steering wheel w/red stitching
Black w/red stitching DSVettes parts: armrest, shift boot, e-brake, e-brake boot
Corsa Sport axleback exhaust
Lloyds mats w/stitched logo
Homelink remote module, not yet installed (2008 and later came with a Lear unit that is simply awful, with poor range and compatibility. Earlier models had a Homelink module that was MUCH better.)
If you dont like the above, I suggest keeping your incorrect opinion to yourself. Kidding! I kept all the original parts and would be happy to return it to stock for the sale. If the mods are right up your alley, they can be negotiated with the sale.
Now since everyone loves a good history lesson in the middle of storytime, heres a timeline of my year with this car (all numbers in freedom-meters):
34,971: PPI performed, oil change performed, and car purchased.
36,000: Corsa Sport axleback exhaust and DSVettes leather parts installed
37,236: Full major 4yr service performed (trans/diff/coolant)
37,236: End links replaced with GM OEM parts (new design, stops squeaking)
37,317: All four tires replaced with new Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position non-runflats in OEM size. This was a must-do and totally transformed the ride, turn-in, and grip.
37,400: Battery replaced
37,466: Oil changed, wiring harness recall was performed as a preventative measure
37,624: Todays mileage
You can see it needs absolutely nothing for the next four years besides annual oil changes (and tires if you have a heavy right foot.) The brake pads are over 50% away from the wear indicator and all other services/consumables have been done within the last 500 miles. Roof and seats are in great shape, as you can see from the pictures.
I am the third owner. I keep meticulous records for all my cars, and this one is no different. Included in the sale (and available for review for serious buyers) is a binder with complete service records for the services I performed as well as the service types and dates for the previous owners. Its my hope that this binder will continue to follow the car to assure its provenance for years to come.
Pre-purchase inspections at the buyers expense are encouraged, and I will take the car to a shop of your choice within a reasonable distance from San Jose. Test drives are also allowed with a US drivers license and proof of funds. The title will be released from the bank shortly, clear of liens for the sale. I only accept bank/cashier's checks or a briefcase full of cash, in which case I will not ask any questions for my own well-being.
Not interested in consignment, trades, rent-to-own, joint custody, etc. I'm sure your vintage Lamborghini pedal-tractor will find a loving home.
