Little Red Corvette — My dream car. Summer is too short in Buffalo to enjoy but still have at least 7 months of fun. Ever since high school in the 70’s, I have loved Corvettes. My favorite years are 1963-1969, followed by the 70’s and early 80’s. My favorite colors are red, black and admiral blue. I finally found this corvette at a reasonable price in July 2011, and have been enjoying my dream car. My son has also fallen in love with corvettes, so he will be passed this car.

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!

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.

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.

Holy Sweetness — I love this car! Technically it's my dad's car, but he said I can drive it on dates. It's not the 'Vette in the photo, but it looks pretty similar to it. We need to fix it up a bit and make it run better. it gets about 10 to 15 miles per gallon

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.
