Pros

It's a Vette!

Cons

If you love the Blue Oval

I Want To Go Disco Every Time I Get Behind The Wheel!! — Love the look. Later C3 but has L82 option and 4-speed. I love the look with the Pace Car spoiler package. Rare factory order A/C delete, manual crank windows and close-ratio trans Vette. I'll never get rich from this car but I still love her!

Classic Look And Sex Appeal — Great crusier and love the shark body and raw power and torque of the base 350. Just sold in Oct-2010 and will use funds to put towards newer retro Mustang GT Convertible hopefully after winter. Owner for 13 years but was time to move on

3 Out Of 5 Stars... Until I Fully Repair, And Restore It. — Altough built in the 70's. I can't seem to dislike the car in any way. It's not the fastest ,or coolest car out there, but it has great personality. I don't care that it had poor build quality out of the factory 30 years ago or had 225 hp out of a 350 engine. Every time I get into the car, no matter how many times I drive it. It still puts a smile on my face.

Ride Quality, Looks of the Vehicle

Brakes... bleeder screws break easy...

Black Vette — This car is quite awesome, though the low geared V8 leaves something to be desired, its a nice drive and has the go when you need to. Black ext., black int., and chrome trim...very nice color scheme. I personally like how the speedometer can't keep up with the acceleration.

Cons

Constant maintenance

Classic Cars Never Go Out Of Style — If you want to show off in a car, this one will turn heads!! It's fun, fast and always enjoyable to drive. There isn't much maintenance because the engine is simple and easy to work on. If you know someone who has one, ask to go for a ride. Just don't ask if you can drive it.

Best Car Ever — Great car. Handles well and great acceleration. I love the fact that it can speed up quickly and hugs the road so you can make those tight corners. Low cost of ownership.

gas hog

Vette — For a mid seventies Corvette - it was a decent car. It had very little rattles or flaws. Black, L82, spoiler package, 1982 Colllector Edition wheels and 4.11 rear gears made it fairly quick, if a gas hog.
