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.

it looks awesome

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

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!

Pros

This is a 350 hp-350 cu. in. 4 spd. car w/AC ,T-Tops and a drop out rear window, one of only a few yrs. that had this option. It is a number matching Red on Red Orig. car but is driven quite often, not a trailer queen.

Cons

This is a 11 to1 compression rate motor & really likes 103 octane leaded fuel, @ the pump I'm paying around $7.80 a Gal. for gas, repairs seem to occur often and to get them done right can be costly

Not A Supercar Like A Ford Gt Or An Aero But Right Up There With Cobra's, Etc. — These old vette's will smack you back in the seat and spin the meats right thru third gear if you hole shot them, & there's nothing like cubic inches & high compression to make you smile, the Muncie 4spd. Rock-Crusher trans will jolt your teeth in every gear, these were more of a straight line car but it does handle suprisingly well in the corners as long as you keep your foot in it, give it too much & it will swap ends on you in the blink of an eye so it's not a car that you want to let get out in front of you. If you get too complacent, you'll be buying body parts. but it a gas to drive.
