Great Car — Beautifully restored numbers matched 427cid/4 speed roadster. Runs great and is a very fun car to drive. Restoration began in 2010 and completed in the spring of 2014, a frame off, rotisserie restoration, every inch of the car was refurbished or replaced, a show winner for sure.

Classic American Roadster — The Corvette is a classic icon. It attracts attention wherever it goes. This one is a small block which helps it handle pretty good due to less weight over the front wheels compared to the big block cars. It is fun to drive and has plenty of power to spare!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Great lines, lots of power, looks great, fun to drive.  Thumbs up when I go out from other drivers.  Big Hankook H101s help hug the road. Big cam and headers turns heads and sets off car alarms. :-).  5 speed helps off the line/ top end and fuel econ.  Easy repair parts, not expensive.

Cons

Old, needs care. Stock suspension sucks, lots of under steering.  Too much power in turns and you do donuts.

Wow! — I'm just telling people what I have done to my car to modernize it a bit, make it better, and be different from other similar 1969 Corvettes. A 1969 Corvette clean and polished looks great anywhere. How I personalized my car is equipping it with dual 500 cfm quads, Edelbrock heads, carburetors, a built custom cam, Hooker headers, American Racing 200S rims on Hankook tires. Updated the leather interior, dropped in new 5 speed transmission, new brakes, new rear suspension and all gone through. This car is fun to drive, and is fast. I enjoy taking it to car shows. At times I trophy. I have my grandson help clean the car. I'm sorry if this sounds like an add to sell the car, but it is not.

Looks good, sounds great, collectable and appreciating classic.

Typical vette maintenance, not very comfortable to drive

Great To Look At, Sounds Awesome, Painful To Maintain. — Typical 39 year old sports car. Always something that needs doing. Having said that, it looks great and gets attention everywhere.

C3 — The only US sportscar, very good looking. The appearance is very eye catching. The V8 has - as always - a very good sound and a nice performance. This car is build of glass fibre and could last another 40 years. It's a real classic. Get one while they are still around.

Cons

sports car with poor suspension

It's A Cruiser Not A Racer — You can't beat the look of the american muscle cars. and who doesn't like the concept of a big ass engine for lots and lots of speed? you always long for some better suspension when driving these cars, but who cares, they look awesome

I love this car.  It runs great, sounds great and is easy to maintain.  No Power accessories, just power!  Number match on almost everything.  Buy parts on E-bay!

My Hot Rod! — To HOT to drive in Hot Florida Summer! Great for conversations. Everyone loves the looks and sounds of this car. I can not stop to get gas without someone asking me about it. Many times at Stop lights people will ask me about it!

Eye Catcher — I really enjoy driving this car since I have had the seats totally rebuilt & recovered. It is quite peppy with a rebuilt 350 and handles great since the entire suspension has been re-done. It always generates interest when I take it to a cruise-in or just to the grocery store!
