I searched for a long time and was unable to find a clean, stock, low mileage FRC in my immediate area. I needed the FRC model because a lot of the groups I do open-lap events with at the race track do not allow cars with removable tops (e.g. any car where the B-pillar is not connected to the A-pillar). This included most of the C5 coupes I found out.  I was unwilling to pay the premium for the Z-06 model as the car was to undergo many modifications which would replace almost everything the zo6 has to offer. I shied away from buying an already modified FRC in my area and went with the low mileage, stock FRC that Joe had. Joe was very helpful throughout the sale process. He even drove me a few towns over to get the temporary registration to bring the car home as my wife had expressed a desire to get back home quickly after we arrived in her Jeep. Joe told us he would handle everything and she left me there with him so she could get back home and continue her day. Joe answered all of the questions I had regarding the C5 corvette on our way to and from the AAA office. I know much about the performace stats of these cars but not much about the mechanical workings of them and was greatfull to speak with someone so knowledgeable. The car reflected his mechanical skill because any thing repaired on it prior to sale were unnoticeable and had been performed better than new. The car met its first real test last weekend at the track and performed great. It even had to pull double duty to get another driver some seat time, because the afformentioned, local half-modded FRC (purchased by a friend of mine after I decided against it)did not make it through 3 minutes of the weekend's first session. I am very happy that I was referred to Keystone Corvettes during my search and very happy to have met Joe. I know if there ever is something that would need repaired beyond my knowledge, Joe would be there for advice.
