Perfect — Performance - Well what can u expect from a big block 454 engine. A shame its not manual tho... Build Quality - Well the body work is good since is fiber glass, doesent rust. And the americans are known to make reliable engines. Appearence - Look at the photo. Do i have to say more? Sound is awesome. Cost of Ownership - Well its not the cheapest car to run but i dont pay taxes and MOT once every 2 years. Fun Factor- U might hate american cars before u drove it, but once u drove my baby youd change your mind.

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

Damn I Miss My Car — What's not to say? Everyone has their favorite car - this is mine. When I picked it up - the body and handling was a little rough - but the motor. The motor was well-built. The previous owner had dumped about $5k into it. 350 small block - but bored, polished, all the good stuff. In the end a 383 Stroker. Damn I miss that car

Fun Car To Drive And Shift The Four Speed Through The Gears And Excercise The Ponites. — The 1974 Corvette is a fun car to drive around and take to cars shows. The car wins trophies and gets great looks from other cars driving on the highway. I find the 74 a very nice looking handling car.

Pros

Car looks great and is a constant head turner.  People always stop by the car and ask me what year it is and compliment the car on how great it looks!  The car drives very well, with the new front and rear suspension it drives as it it came right off the lot.  Very smooth and tight handling car.  With the addition of the side pipes the car sounds really great and has that classic American Muscle car sound.  The interior of the car is in great shape for 40 year old vehicle and is quite comfortable.

Cons

I wish the car had more power, that's about it!

Fun Classic Car Head Turner! — The car looks great and drives very well, my only dislike is that I wish it had more power. If I end up keeping the car, I will probably look to get a 383 stroker engine that has over 400HP!

'74 Vette" -awesome To Drive, Expensive To Fix — Love driving this car, even though it is modified, still gets a lot of "thumbs up". Handling is pretty good, I have replaced the weather strips around the windows and on the T Tops, but still get some leakage during a heavy rain-everall -a Fun car to drive

Pros

In the 70's it was da bomb!  After rebuild ran mid-12's at Fremont Raceway all night!  

Cons

Creaky, paint quality, and handling

At The Time It Was "everything." By Today's Standard - Weak. — It scooted along much better after dropping a rebuilt, blue-printed/balanced, 4-bolt main, slant plug head, small block in there. Other goodies added: Holley double-pumper, Hooker headers/side pipes, American Racing five-spoke wheels, remote/dual oil filter, Edelbrock intake, Turbo 400 transmission (with B&M shift kit), NOS (for a while), Elgin camshaft, TRW triple valve springs, etc, etc, etc.

1974 L82 Corvette — I have owned my L82 auto for about 13 years now. This has been a great car with plenty of power and looks. The engine does need a rebuild soon. It even still has the original front and rear bumpers still attached, they may not look the best. This car is Bright Yellow with the custom black leather interior, AC, rear window defroster, map light, tilt tele wheel, power brakes. I did upgrade to Bilstein shocks which made a big difference in handling. Great car that I plan to keep for a long time to come.
