Awesome — Lotsa power due to extensive mods: K&N airfilter; MAT Reloc kit; Edelbrock throttle body; Comp CAM; Roller Rockers; Trick Flo Twisted Wedge Heads; Hooker Long Tube Headers; High Flow CAT; Gigantic ZR1 Tires; Beautiful paint job. Have to let here go, since I lost my job :(

Value, reliability, performance, and yes, even gas mileage! 32+ MPG!! Seriously...

Cons

Not much. They run hotter than I like, but mine has only over heated once.

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!

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 :)

Clear Title. Real Classy. — This is one of a kind. It's looks like it's racing while sitting still. Eyes turn when this beauty passes by. The power is refreshing and impressive. Smooth on the Interstate and struts in the City. This red beauty need do nothing to "show off".

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

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.
