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.

Awesome — I think the Corvette is the best sports car out there. They handle great and are always reliable. Trigger has never let me down once. We've won every race. She always turns in the fastest times. Nothing can catch her.

Pros

Very fast and powerful.

Cons

Not for every day driving. Antennas for it are hard to find. If you don't usually drive one it can be difficult to get out of.

A Piece Of Muscle Car History — Right now the speedometer is broken which means, obviously, you wouldn't know how fast you were going, but that is soon to be fixed. The door handles are different than most other vehicles. They are flat against the body and are pressed in rather than pulled out to open the door. Not quite as cool as the 1982, but it is equally lovable.

Best Experience Ever Driving One. — Car has been almost completely rebuilt. I have done the following to the car since I bought it: New paint, stinger hood, daytona front bumper, fiberglass rear bumper, side exhaust, 16x8" polished aluminum wheels, 245/55/R16 BF Goodrich tires, carpeting, door panels, leather seats, walnut steering wheel, walnut dash trim. I am currently in the process of replacing the suspension, motor, and auto to manual conversion. Motor is a 350 bored 30 over, aluminum pistons, aluminum roller rockers, aluminum performer intake, demon 750 carb.
