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

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

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.

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.

Best Exterior Design Ytd — In my opinion the C3 body style is unsurpassed by any thing Chevy has manufactured to date. Unfortunately GM failed to realize that and installed woefully underpowered engines in most of them. I really happy to see more articles written about the C3’s and hope that GM will make an effort to provide us with more support in the way of better parts at a reasonable price
