Barn Find Trio: Seller Shows The World How Not To Store Collectible Corvettes

Check out this trio of dusty, dirty, collectible C3s, where the price will blow your mind more than the condition

A trio of tired C3s

Dirty, dusty, neglected, and inoperable collectibles? Check. Blurry pictures? Check. One jumbled run-on ad? Check. A package price that will have you asking, can I get some of what he’s on? Check. I could go on, but I think you get the idea. I know everybody’s situation and life challenges are different, and I’m trying my best not to judge this seller. Still, as a near-lifelong enthusiast, I think a little shaming is in order. Who would take three near brand new C3 Corvettes, with a total of only 1,925 miles, and throw them in the corner of a garage to rot for decades?

Let’s have a moment of silence as we look at these former beauties. Then, we’ll dive into the seller’s ad, look at some depressing blurry pictures, and, for the finale, we can all laugh at the seller’s asking price. After this therapeutic series of steps, I think the shame fest can be considered complete.

The Listing From Facebook Marketplace

The only thing missing is the Facebook go-to of “I know what I have!” You’ll also notice there’s a Freudian slip in the ad, as I am just a bit bitter about the condition of these C3s.

Sentiment From Social Media

Drum Roll… How much will it take to own this trio of C3s?

And they are marked down from $9,999,999! Okay, CorvSport readers, this concludes today’s shaming session. For some post-session therapy, I’m going to offer up a link to an encouraging 1978 Pace Car rescue that I featured last year. If you want to be truly inspired by what an enthusiast can accomplish with these old relics, you’ll want to click.
