Pretty Nice First Car. — It has excellent Chevrolet quality. The Physical aspect of the build is very reliable. Performance wise, it's a corvette, they're legendary, c'mon. Excellent acceleration and light and nimble, making it very fun to drive. Insurance isn't bad because I'm a safe driver :)

1986 Corvette — Corvettes are great, reliable cars with good performance and GREAT value! I Can't wait to buy a newer one! You always get loads of attention, plus it's cool to tell everyone you own a corvette, it's a great conversation peice. I wouldn't mind trading mine in for a c5 though!

Cleaned Up And Re-built This Only To Race It Once — My buddy bought this car for a steal. It looked like it had not ever been taken car of. So we broke it down and did all the basics and replaced the shocks, etc.

Pros

The low-end torque combined with the 4+3 manual transmission make this a torque-monster off the line and a blast to drive.

Cons

You need to prop up the rear window with an aftermarket mod in order to keep wind from catching in the car and slowing it down when the roof's off and the windows are down. There is a distinct lack of high RPM power from the engine, but this is common with the TPI L98 block.

1986 Chevrolet Corvette Two-tone — My first Corvette, and still in the family. Since this photo was taken my sister's taken ownership of it as a college ride, and the entire exterior and my Z06 rims have all been painted black. It truly looks wicked.
