A True Classic — A real head turner, this was a beautiful piece of art. I loved taking the t-tops off and just cruising. The acceleration left a little to be desired (cross fire injection?) and the gas mileage was, of course, crap. But man, this car was so much fun it was worth it to me. I hated to sell it when I came to Europe...

Pros

Absolutely the best looking vette body style. Handling and performance is perfect as is the sound of the exhaust note. Just great!

Cons

Cheap plastic interior components, but the style fits the car. A little tight for my 6'3" frame.

First Vette, Awsome Car — I purchased a white with blue cloth interior with 39000 miles on it from an older couple who kept in covered in their garage. The car is in very good shape with some minor glitches. The power antenna does not work, windows do not seal near roof line or rear of window. But the car is in excellent shape, a real looker. It has a new coat of paint and sparkles. Driving is crisp and responsive with lots of power :)
