A Pleasure To Drive And To Maintain! — I currently own my 2nd '76 Vette. I wish I'd kept my first, but I am contented with the one I have now. Probably the best thing about these cars is how easy they are to fix. A Haynes manual and an assembly book cover most of what goes wrong. I think most people expect the car to last by doing nothing, but a little maintenance every once in awhile goes a long way. There are three things (IMHO) that you should keep working, no matter what: the headlight operation, the gauges, and most importantly, the A/C. Aside from the styling, these are the most unique parts of the car. Nearly every muscle car of this era struggles with interior comfort, but the Corvette AC unit does as good a job as most current vehicles. Most parts and maintenance items are on the shelf, and eBay keeps hard-to-find items available if not found locally. Lastly, I like these cars for DRIVING, not storing. I laugh when I go to a car show and see trailer queens being rolled out. I realize and respect cars of such caliber, but they're not for me. Give me a ground-pounding, rail-cornering 'Vette any day and you'll have people staring as much as any showroom quality model.

Love Ti! — It's a very fun car :) it's still 100% percent original and has no major issues! We're the second owners! It has not needed any repairs besides the obvious brakes and stuff. The exterior appearance is excellent. The interior needs to be re-upholstered.

Overall A Really Neat, Fast Looking Machine! — I bought this "StingRay" on a whim because the price was right up my alley...As it is so far I've spent alot of $$$ and I've enjoyed this but I havn't had time to really enjoy the car itself yet because I've been working on it alot to "Bring it back to life". Hopefully before long, I'll be able to get some fun use out of it around the island here.

Amazing — The ONLY thing wrong with the car was getting stuck to the leather seats. Such a great ride. You can feel the road but not the potholes. And the handling was unbelievable.

Sweet N Lo — Whats there not to like ? Power, reputation and tons of eye candy.. fun to drive just cruising around. The best part is the little kids that you pass on the street that are used to seeing the same boxy soccer mom haulers drive by.

A Classic Styleish Sports Car — Performance is awesome. Steers great, great acceleration if you baby it you get good gas mileage. A car that feels like it hugs the corners and a car that makes you relaxed as you drive with the tops off listing to the radio.

Primary Use: Commuting to work
