Default C5 question/ auto search

Hey guys, quick question for ya. I am coming back from the desert again around June time frame and was wanting to get into a C5 for about 13K. Where would one look to find such a gem? I have been doing my homework (Autotrader/CL searching) and I really havent found a GREAT deal. I know that I couldnt get a 2005, but a 1998-2002 is realistic in my price range I believe. And if I am wrong, please let me know. So with that beening said, could some of yall point and Air Force dude in the right direction?

corvette forums will be a good place to look. A car in the $13,000 range is probably going to be pretty high mileage. If you can spend more like $17,000 you will be able to find a lower mileage car.

also be willing to travel if you need to... when i was looking i couldn't find anything half decent anywhere in my area, i even went to houston twice and pretty much wasted $300 on 2 one way plane tickets to phoenix... the seller started acting like a douche about a week before i was going to pick it up so i backed out... i ended up driving to kansas to pick mine up... good luck
