There is a difference, but $8000 is a bit much. Also the 2005 C6 Corvette is the least desirable of all the C6 cars.

Wholesale is what the car would go for at auction. Dealers buy the cars without knowing anything about them. The markup is for repairs, detailing, advertising, overhead and profit.

Bob you are dreaming ,a bit much !! $8000 on a $25,000 that is robbery. You wonder why auto dealers have such a bad reputation. In regards to C5s. You better do your homework, C5s are considered by most Vette enthusiasts as one of the best CORVETTES ever built. I have been driving Corvettes for 40 years and I agree.
