Amazing — Its a beautiful car. The body is amazing, and it has the power to match the body. Not a good day to day car but a lot of fun to drive and good for getting a lot of looks. New Corvettes are so common that people tend to ignore them, but its impossible to ignore this one.

Eye Catcher. Lots Of Attention! — Turn key ready for cruising. Gets a lot of attention when sitting at stoplights. Very simple car to do any kind of upgrades and the cost isn't way out there either. I have a (Corvette America) parts cataloge that comes with the car.

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

Fun To Show Off In — its loud, it draws positive attention, love to rev it. re upholstered seats, 2 extra seats behind the driver, still have original battery, updated mirrors, custom chevrolet emblem caps. very very fun to drive, removable convertible hood, with pop up headlamps

Pros

Its a blast to drive and run it through the gears on twisty mountain roads

Cons

37 year old car that requires regular maintenance that I do not mind doing but may scare unmechanical types

Great Collector Car To Enjoy Cruises And Car Shows In — Fun car to drive and gets lots of looks and comments but it is a 37 year old car that cannot compete with todays technology in its stock form. I prefer to keep it original and enjoy those summer cruises with the T-Tops off

1973 Vette - - - - - - — beautiful car, i miss the chrome front bumper but its only a new front clip away. handles beautifully, looks amazing, and has tons and tons of torque but not speed to a certain extent. you can easily top 160 on express way with her. interior looks great, dash looks good with all those specific gauges for heat oil temp. would need new suspension but stock works great. overall its a perfect vette, they just dont make them that beautiful anymore. i wish the motor wasnt capped as much as it is. Surprisingly the 350 only pushed 190hp, which would be equivalent to a stock 2007 6cylinder charger. drivability its a work of art. sitting inside for the first time is nothing less that sheer amazement. inches from the floor, its gives a sense of speed and agility like never before. winshield is deeply angled to make in aspect with the body of the car. driving visability is really low but that doesnt necessarily mean its a bad thing its a corvette! in laymens terms, you can probably get more visability out of a 2010 camaro than you would from this vette, but it one of the numerous reasons why i love it.

1973 Corvette — Performance- For the era, it was amazingly fast. Not so much any more. Still pretty fast though Build Quality- Well its a 36 year old car... of course it has issues Appearance- Thoughts may differ, but this car is gorgeous. They definitely went form over function as the interior is somewhat small Cost of Ownership-Once again, this is a 36 year old car. Once it is fixed completely, then it won't cost much to maintain. It really drinks gas though Fun Factor-Once all the kinks are worked out, this car will be amazing. Fast, gorgeous, and rare, people pay attention.

Corvette 73 — For being so old it is a great car. Performance is really good, needs some suspension upgrade to be able to compete with modern cars. It is a really fun car to drive. It does consume some gas so to say.

Hot 73' Stingray — All my driving life I have wanted a "Vette" I always pictured a 78' but I fell in love with my little yellow "RumbleBee" She's fast,sexy and fun as heck to drive. Even when she's grabbing pavement she looks like a peice of art...a car of the past. I have had many sports cars, 78 Firebird,78 Camaro,66 Caprice,89 5.0, 97 firebird, and an 86 Fiero...... but this baby will never, EVER be traded off, sold or given away. She's a keeper

Too Slow With A Stock 350 — Awesome looking car. Just had it painted 2008 dodge Viper pearl blue, really glows. New wheels and tires finished it off.

Classic Car Reminds Me Of High School! 30+ Years Has Gone By Too Fast! — I've owned it for 10 years now. I totalled it out opn the freeway recently. Now I have to find another one. My wife seems to think I should use the money for other "more important " things. My heart is broken. I loved that car.
