    I know this is a long shot, as this is a gun forum, but hey I’ve been a member here for a long time so let’s roll the dice and see...

    My Father -in-Law passed away this past August 3rd, 2020 from a long-bout of cancer and he had a black with tan interior 2005 CTS-V with 28k miles (it’s in great shape for a 15 year old car). I’m not a car guy as witnessed that I drive a Subaru Outback....I know all jokes are warranted but it does go to the gun range so it’s cool.

    I have no need for the car so I would think someone on this forum maybe interested or know someone that may be interested in it way more than I would be. I would be glad to send more pics to whomever is interested. The car is in great shape and is an all factory car.

    Specs on the car:
    400 hp LS-6 Corvette Engine (it’s fast)
    6 speed manual transmission
    tan leather interior

    The car is in Central Virginia ( Charlottesville area) and asking $17,500 for it or OBO

    I’ve been asked a lot today on trades...I’m not against a partial trade but I need the majority money...so, if you have a Newer Gap-10 308 or 6.5 Creedmoor, a TacOPs 308, or high end optics I’m willing to take a trade but the majority will have to be in money exchanged in my favor.

    I have a 2005 CTS-V with All the Creative Steel mods including short throw shifter Ford 8.8 rear end, DSS 1000HP axles, long tube headers with Corsa full 3" exhaust, CAI, and Monster twin disc clutch. Trouble with the 05 is its the most undesirable due to some first run issues biggest being the rear end and axles. The rear end is porcelain and the axles cause teeth shattering wheel hop. All this is fixed with CS and the car launches hard with zero hop. I paid 10.5k for the car, 5k for the creative steel and 8.8, 3k for the exhaust, 1.5k for 700HP Monster twin disc clutch. It is tuned with HPTuners which will be included with the car if needed. I have it listed for 14.5k OBO No trades

    Op and I are selling something a bit different than the norm so it just seems to make sense to keep it together rather than cluster the forum up.

    "Our" thread? Make your own thread dude. Nobody does this shit with guns on here without catching shit for hijacking. Why would you think this is any different? You have to know this is a bit of a dick move man.

    Good Lord just trying to sale cool car.
    Yeah that was wild I never would have guessed that reaction people must really need to vent. Awesome car and fun to drive. You can drive it to the track race all day drive home pickup the wife and kids and head to dinner. Not many American sport cars offer that.

    I think I now can understand how someone with a clear case of dementia will receive votes to occupy the highest office in the land. 🤔

    Back on topic! JstarsZ, I have a buddy that was looking for one of these not long ago. They are not easy to find at all and have usually been in miles on them when you do find one. I’m going to pass it along. Are you willing to ship it?

    I'm not familiar with what happens to cars in Virginia. Do cars get rusty there?
    I guess it could if it lived outside but this car has lived in a garage its whole life....never been Outside for an overnight stay 😁.... I told someone yesterday that this is a cherry of a car. If I was rating it by NRA standards I would say it is 90%...it’s been driven but never abused...no track, no street racing; it truly is a car that has been babied.

    Very nice, great motors, great transmissions and they get hilariously good fuel economy for their power.

    My favorite sleeper of all time. Wish I could give it a good home. Good luck. I hope it goes to someone who appreciates it.

    I was wondering when the "BAN HAMMER" was coming down.
    He was warned very civil, and yet he kept pushing.

    I wish this was available a month ago. I just bought a car in that time frame.
    OP, sorry for your loss man.

    to the OP. have you thought about listing this site at bring a trailer? with the ultra low miles you might find the perfect audience for what looks like a very special car.

    mtnkind - you are thinking of the 2nd Gen CTSV - there was no first gen CTS wagon... fast wagons = win.

    That’s exactly where I’m listing it next. Just thought I’d give my gun brothers the first shot at it.
