Very Fast For A Late Seventies Vette. — This is a 1976 Stingray with the L48 engine (350 V8) and the 3-speed automatic tranny. It is painted poppy orange which i think looks pretty good on it. I love this style of Vette but I would rather have a late sixties or early seventies model because they have more power.

Teenage Dream — I all out love this car. The passion that was placed into its design is immaculate, all American, it is gorgeous even in it's current condition. It has leather seats, power windows, AM/FM radio, AC, and more add-on features.

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

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

Awesome Car — I have to part with this treasure of an automobile. I have a hard time getting in and out of it at my age. It is not the most economical vehicle but it is very fun to drive and if you are into being the center of attention then this car will make you famous. :-)

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.

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.

My Custom 'vette — Has a 350 racing engine, with edelbrock performer manifold, hooker headers, flowmaster 40's with a custom exhaust, pushing around 375 hp. swapped a 700r4 tranny into it, custom front and rear bumpers off an 80 vette, molded the bumpers in to body with no seam, shaved emblems, door handles, luggage rack and mirrors, custom silver with blue pearl paint, and silver and blue interior
