Pros

C3's were/are the sexiest looking vette ever made

Cons

trying to find original parts for a 30 year old car.

Lil' Corvette That Could! — This is a picture of someone elses Vette! It's what I hope mine looks like when I'm done restoring it. With the oil crisis of the seventies, the big powerfull V8's were no more.... instead you got meager 185 horse 225 ft/lbs torque, smog pump, non performers. But that can be changed ;^)

Highway transmission provides insane acceleration while going 40 mph or more

Cons

Highway transmission does not provide insane acceleration from a standstill...

A Proud-to-own Classic — Sure, this generation wasn't the best on gas effeciency, but it's still a sleek car that outperforms a Porsche of the same year!

Pros

Looks awesome and has great acceleration. Nice to show off!

Cons

Obviously not much room to put stuff, the steering is awful, and parts are expensive.

Looks Awesome, But Is Awkward To Drive. — When I drove it, it was really hard to handle. If you move the steering wheel a little bit it turns a lot. One reason for that was a part of the steering column of other similar part was broken. It was also wierd to sit so far back in the car. I love the silver color and shape of it.

Pros

4-speed, L-82, T-Tops, and 8-Track Player for the win!!!

Cons

Too much emissions crap chocks all the potential performance (Thanks '70s fuel crisis!).

An Old Friend — Fantastic car!!! I had a L-82 with a 4-speed on the silver anniversary paint. Great car, amazing to drive. This is a slow one by Corvette standards however it is still a Corvette and loads of fun. This car is completely worth it!

Great Set Of Wheels. — I have owned my 78 Pace Car replica vette since early 1985 and basically love the car. As it gets (and I get) older, however, finding good mechanics who are familiar with older vehicles is becoming progressively more difficult.
