Thanks, Jay. I'm 45 and I bought my first Corvette - a 2001 with a 6 speed and 122,000 miles that cost me $12,500. It's a ton of fun and I'm glad I got it.

Had a 2001 convertible, same color with the tan interior. Probably the best car I ever owned. I’m currently driving a 2020 Mustang GT premium, six speed manual transmission, which is a lot of fun to drive. If I had to choose between the two, Corvette wins every time!

For the same money, a low mileage Mercedes SL500 2003 to 2006 can be had which has a different personality (and to me more attractive) then the Corvette: the SL is arguably more sophisticated all the way around having more comfortable ride (adjustable hydraulic suspension), better quality interior with more room, and amazing retractable hardtop mechanism. Perhaps more expensive to maintain but not unreasonably so for someone who knows their away around machinery. Like to Jay's opinion of the SL500 versus the same era Corvette.

Jay, remember when I followed you to your house around ‘03 in my black 2001 C5? You said “I have one of those!” I guess this was it! Come to our Ford museum in HB for our BBQ and you’ll see my next crazy project! I have some Duesenberg parts for you!...Neel

As the proud owner of a 1999 C5 Z51 Convertible, I wholeheartedly agree. It’s my 3rd Corvette and as much as I love my ‘88 C4, the C5 is superior in every aspect. I love the body style and pop up headlights. Never had a single issue with it in the 20 years I’ve owned it other than routine maintenance items.

I love my 99 c5 vette I’ve had her about 1-1/2 now and it’s the best purchase I’ve ever made!!! I’ve had an 01 Camaro, 1985 trans am that was in jay Leno’s condition standards that I crashed I disliked myself for that one... but now I have the 99 c5 corvette 6speed manual and it handles sooo well and sooo much fun to drive anyone looking to buy a c5 get the 6 speed manual transmission you won’t regret it!!!!

Quite a few years ago I had the pleasure of driving you from the airport, to a show in Johnstown Pennsylvania, I was wearing a corvette jacket, and you asked what kind of car I owned, What impressed me the most about you was how genuine you are, and frankly a pretty nice guy, you seem to be at home with anyone. You need to include the C4 car in your collection, I have a 1996 corvette powered by Chevy's hot rod Engine of the time the LT4, these cars made some serious improvements over the years, and without the C4 car, Chevy probably would have pulled the plug on the C5 program all together, Its certainly the Rodney Dangerfield of corvettes, but in my opinion, it'll go down in history as the car that saved corvette. not the C5!

GM was "able to" build and sell the vette at that price because it was losing money and would need a massive taxpayer bailout ten years later - which it never repaid despite the terms of that bailout. GM is a corrupt corporation tied to the UAW. Just ask all those dealers that lost their GM dealerships based on political payoffs. Never buy a new GM (govt motors). Never.

Even though the mid 2000's corvettes are attainable at under $20k, insurance would destroy me at 25 years old. So I got a challenger instead which is another great car.

I had a C5 convertible back in the early 2000s, was a fun drive to drive. Only issue was the garbage run flats they put on it, they were terrible -- in the rain the car was nearly undriveable as it would slide all over the place with the mildest use of the pedal. But I replaced them with the best wet traction tires available at the time, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetrics I believe, and wow, it was night and day, you could drive the car hard in any conditions and it just stuck to the road. Additionally the Vette was the first time I ever felt the tires 'grab' the road, I had heard people say it before, but had never felt it, it was just fun as well to throw around. For the money you couldn't get anything compariable, certainly not at the time. The amazing thing to me is how these are not as cheap as I would have thought they'd be - I thought for around $15k you could get something in good shape and under 100k miles, but those are over $20k. It's not bad deprecation at all considering most everything from that time frame is dirt cheap right now. The fact it's a mass produced GM car means its still easy to get parts for and easy to fix - and the LS1 is super reliable as well. Anyways, if you get one, get some good tires for it, probably Michelin Pilot Sports 4 - put those on this thing and it's going to hand 96% as well as the best you can buy today for under $100k.

These pandemic videos have a very 1-on-1 feeling to them, very personable, between Jay’s direct discussion of the car and the sound quality making it sound like you’re standing right there. No BSing, no loud segue music, none of that other nonsense.. I like it a lot more than guests and the entertainment show atmosphere and hope that once the show returns to normal, videos like this still come out.
