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

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
