Overall It Is A Great Driving Car But Not Very Practical For Me — A fun, fast car with a fresh black paint job. The T-top is good and there are no leaks. Everything in the car works to my knowledge. It has a 350 V-8 with dual exhaust. It also sounds really good. It has a stock interior and has good tires and wheels

Classic looks.  Always a "head turner."

Cons

Finding knowledgeable mechanics.

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.

Pathetic — This was the last American car I ever bought. Nor will I ever buy any American car in the future. I bought the car brand new after having owned a '73 Vette, which I also had bought new. It was literally in the shop more than it was on the road - massive electrical problems, leaks, rattles (of course), etc., etc. After putting up with it for 3 months, I bought a Datsun Z and never looked back.

Primary Use: Family transportation
