I am looking for a challenge car to bring across the country for this event (it's on my bucket list)

I found a 98 Corvette for $2000...  it has some computer problem that keeps it from going over 80mph.  The current owner has spent a bunch of money trying to fix it to no avail.

Looking through the rules, it would appear that I would need a consensus here that it is actually a $2000 car and not a ringer.

So what do you guys think?  Could this 98 Corvette be a $2000 challenge car?

Do you have a receipt and maybe a copy of the ad?  That's good enough.

Yup. If its public at that price, its fair.

Last year the was a $2000 CTS-V there for similar reasons.

I bought one a few years back for $2008.  It was an ugly 2001 automatic.

 

 

The 80 mph limit thing is likely because the shocks were replaced or broken.  Look up f45 / f55 delete.  You can fix it with a GM tec 2 or some resistors.

A c5 isn't a challenge ringer either.  Bring it and have fun
