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.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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.

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.
