When C6 shopping, what should I look for? What should I look out for? Any particular years better or worse than others?

Lyle at C&S Corvettes really helped me. Although I have a 2008 Z because it was a perfect sale, I would have gone for a later year.

Well, look from 2005 up, as the engine was upgraded from a LS 2 to LS 3.

Make that 2008 and up.  The LS2 was the engine from 2005 through 2007.  The LS3 replaced the LS2 beginning in 2008.
