Great Sports Car! — The look of this car speaks for itself. It is just a sharp looking car. It runs and drives great. Is a fun car for an occasional drive. The bad thing is the space. I am a bigger guy and it is pretty tight for me getting in and out. No back seats. But if you are looking for a sports car to drive around on weekends or nice days, this is definitely for you!

The Fast & The Furious Has Met Its Match — This is a Fun Car to Drive. People Stop on the sidewalk and watch it go by. Always Best in Show at the Ice Cream Shop. At 550 HP you really need to make sure you leave enough room to stop the car.

Gorgeous — everything is just the way i need.... i love my car and i do care about her... "Corvette" she does not need any extra addings on her body not internally nor externally, if you need to relax just drive it on the highway of the country side, open the windows, take off the t-tops and enjoy the breeze coming from the fields you are passing through, it is fun to drive such beautiful car.

My Vette — This was my first car, still own it today, rebuilt the engine for track use. now it is primarily a race car with some fun driving when i get the urge. 300hp, 400 ft/lbs of torque, recently rebuilt 350 TPI engine from a '86 vette big block springs, front coils and rear leaf both lowered. daytona front and rear bumper, high rise hod. new paint(electron blue) torque thrust II 17" wheels custom interior blue and black leather seats and door panels ~20 MPG, love the car amazing to drive, but rides a little low, can be a pain over big bumps. me and my dad did all of the work ourselves.

Styling, T-tops, black color

emissions bogged engine, typical problems of a 29 year old car.

The Black Beauty — I absolutly LOVE this car. It is the most stunning car I have ever seen. It handles amaingly and has great performance given that the engine is covered in power stealing emissions controlls. Overall it is aging very gracefully.This is one of the most fun cars I have ever driven. It attracts attention everywhere I drive it.

Deam Car That Im Still Dreaming About — this is another one of my dream cars. the 1980 corvette beautiful lines and a great cruising car. its a 305 automatic as of this moment but ill be doing something about that once i have enough money. i bought it as a project car and have replaced the interior was doeskin the color of the car and is now black. not my idea of the place to start i would have engine swapped and fixed the drivetrain first but im not complaining, yet. the car drive flawlessly if your cruising around town. i don't race it as it shows its age (now 29) and hasn't had a tune up in several years. but the build quality is very high as everything in it works and is still stock. my mini would smoke it but this will get me the girl.

Corvette — I like everything and dislike nothing! This car is has great performance for its age, great handling, and it never fails to turn heads. I have had it for a year and the only problem I had with it was a faulty 160 degree thermostat that I purchased at Advanced Auto.
