Exclamation Advice for Potential C5 Owner

What's up everyone? My name is Ben and I need some advice.... It's been a childhood dream of mine to have a Vette one day, well, I think I might be getting ready to live that dream. I'm really thinking about buying a black 98, convertible. The body is clean and interior is good to go too. I drove it yesterday and it ran like a champ (felt so good to behind the wheel of one). The only problems with it that I noticed are:

- Passenger side window was leaking. There's maybe a 1/2 inch gap between the window and weather-stripping. I think the window might need to be realigned, but maybe it's the weather-stripping. The dealer said they would fix this for me.

- The display on the climate control, at first came on. After driving the car for about 5-10 min, I noticed that it wasn't on anymore. The climate controls worked, but nada on the display. However, when I parked the car after the test drive, it came back on (wtf?) Is this common/easy fix?

She has almost 42,000 miles on her, the dealer was asking $19,999, I've managed to get them down to $17,965. Thoughts? Any advice?

Here's the link

The HVAC display is a fairly easy fix. Takes a little bit of soldering to remount chips that have worked loose.

Doesn't sound like a bad deal.
