Old Corvette — I just completed a full restoration on this car and did not re-build to be a show car or to keep stock, I built the 350 up to 400 plus HP. This car has a 4 speed and is really setup for 1/4 mile racing, but it is very street able if you can afford to drive much at 11 MPG ! just a toy

Summer Fun — Bought this beauty back in 1992 with 30000 miles. This car has been fourteen years of nothing but alot of fun and joy. There is nothing like taking out those t-tops on a hot summer night and going for a cruise,great filling. I now have 43000 miles on ths car now and have had no problems what so ever to speak of. Great car . Can't wait till spring to pull it out of the garage. J G Murphy
