I found about 10 cars that fit my needs. The problem is most are either in California or in a state that doesn’t comply with the North East emissions requirement. There are some in OH, WI. MI and AZ but they don’t have the NE1 emissions. The only one close by was in NH and they won’t deal with Bryner so I’ll wait. It’s their loss, that car has been sitting at the dealer a long time. It has a base price of $47,045, base now is $48,565.

FYI:

NE1 = Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington state requirements.

These other guys won't give up their Corvette's.



I thinks it's important to buy from a dealer that you can rely on long after you drive out the door. If I buy directly from the guy in NH, local dealers will fix my car because they have to not because the want to.

I am with you on that BUT Bryner has also proven that statement to me to be incorrect.

My 2002 Corvette came from another dealer but was serviced since day one by Bryner. They took care of that car like it was their own and kept me as an extremely happy customer. They WANTED to service my 2002 Corvette and did a fine job of it for 6½ years.

My next Corvette, the present 2008 Z06 was orderd by BRYNERKID, delivered by Mike and will continue to be serviced by Fisher and Spencer.

I never had so much fun spending $70k

I wish these guys sold Mustangs too because I want a Mustang GT to go along with Big Red.

I agree it's important to buy from a local dealer and Bryner definitely deserves our support.. whenever feasible. However when I bought my '08 Z06 in January of this year that is not a car I could have bought from them as a long-leftover (built 3/8/08). However they have been more than happy to service it, my vert and my Avalanche, none of which I was smart enough to buy from them. Though guaranteed my next Chevy will be from them.

Also don't dismiss a car just because it's not NE1!!! My 08Z came from Michigan and PA accepted the "50 State Emissions" certification on the COO with no qualms - I called the DMV in advance to verify. There are a few states in the NE1 region that require that cert, even though of course the cars are EXACTLY the same regardless of the COO, but PA is not one of them.

Best of luck, hope you are united with exactly the car you want very soon.

I agree, the cars are all the same, it's all in how they are labeled.

It's crazy. If you've ever seen an assembly line or have an even basic understanding of manufacturing there's just no way they're going to create separate emissions setups for different regions. Regardless of the cost of development and certification of multiple systems the parts costs go way up doing that.

Which is of course why it's ridiculous the courts have allowed states to set separate emissions standards. I'm a big federalist but there ARE certain things the Feds should be the ones to make the call on and something like this is it. The Soviet Socialist Republic of California can decide they would like everyone to drive dandelion pollen sipping flower power cars and that's what we all get stuck with because the manufacturers can't afford to make separate cars for separate regions...

OK, I better get down off my soap box before I fall off and hurt myself.

I would not expect anything less from Bryner, but I don't think any other dealer would have done as much for me as they did.

Mike said the car was built the week of 6/22 and is scheduled to be delivered Tuesday the 14th.

The wait is almost over!

Fantastic! You should post the date and time of delivery. Maybe we can provide a Corvette procession to welcome your new baby.

Same here - bought mine used from a main line dealer but Bryner has been the only shop to touch it. Couldn't be happier with the way I'm treated and the service I get witht the two Steves.
