Pros

Fun quick lot of power

Cons

front brakes leak, carburetor floats stick

65

Quick Through The Gears — I love this car because its a coupe. It's fast and can get you were you want to go fast. It's 350 cubic inches makes sure that they are all there. It's Muncie M-20 transmission makes sure that the power gets to the pavement. Handles good but need to change the front brake seals because they leak from not using the car a lot. All around fun car.

Pros

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!

Cons

No Air in Florida!   Black Interior! Pretty Hot in the afternoon!   Mostly morning and evening rides.

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!

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! — A 1969 Corvette clean and polished looks great anywhere. Dual quads, Edelbrock heads, carburetors, custom cam, headers, American Racing 200S rims on Hankook tires, Leather interior, new 5 speed transmission, new brakes, and all gone through. Fun to drive, n fast.

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.

it looks awesome

Cons

sports car with poor suspension

45

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

Appearance

Cons

A little noisy

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.

Looks good, sounds great, collectable and appreciating classic.

Cons

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.
