Fun On Wheels — Happiness is a red Corvette, and the sun will shine wherever you are... No place for luggage, lousy milage per gallon, terrible tireware(hmm might be caused by driver), handeling on track like a babystroller with a flat tire, but still; the most fun I´ve ever had on four wheels!!

A Project In Progress — I love the overall look of this car, but as you can see, it is far from road worthy. I just recently purchased an engine for it and will probably be bringing it out to school in the near future to start the restoration.

Showed Signs Of Age, But Still A Vette. — This car came into the shop for some general service. Overall not bad, but it did show some signs of the age of the vehicle. In general old Vettes like this one ride poorly. It's not horrible considering your butt is about a foot off the ground though.

Hot!!!!!!!!!!!!! — It's fast and quite comfortable. It has the original interior and paint. Very quiet when driving. Excellent Corvette, for being 35 years of age....

Pros

If you want to be noticed, drive an old Vette, looks are great, handling is good,  T-tops get the wind in your, light weight with good acceleration,

Cons

Tight  squeeze for 6' 3" @ 275 lbs,  Long hood makes it a little tricky when parking, rear window has limited visibility, oh and bye the way, side pipes are HOT!

1972 Corvette Sting Ray — It's a fun car to drive, but to restore is another story, Parts are expensive and setting up the rear suspension can be tricky. If your going to restore one of these DO YOUR HOMEWORK, These cars take more attention to detail than most but if you have the patience and not afraid to work with fiberglass then do it to it, it's well worth the effort when it's done.

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

Corvette — Quick and powerful but anything but a straight line is stretching it lol. Very sleek and stylish. Gas mileage isn't good, but it's expected with older sports cars. The car is extremely fun to drive around. Definitely a true classic.
