Major Work — Its obvious. Bought a beautiful replacement frame because this one is rotted. This is going to be a frame off restore. Its also a fake fuelie. Have an engine in the basement that need to be assembled and am putting disks back on it.

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

Pros: Its a split window.

Cons: Its a wreck.

White Car — This was and still is a very nice car, RARE Corvette and a car that people would ask me why I would drive the car on a regular basis, but the way I look at it is if you have a nice old car enjoy it, and to do that you MUST drive it.

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

Pros: 327 small block 300hp 4 speed, this car was a blast to drive and I miss it.

Cons: I kept wanting to make changes to this original car, so I sold it.
I did not need 4 vehicles, plus a Harley, anyway.

Love It — I purchased this car because firstly I loved the look, but on doing research I found it was quite rare. It has fantastic power and also good fuel mileage. It is also much fun to drive. Maintenance costs are no more than any other car.

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

Pros: Looks and power

Cons: Rear vision

Automotive Perfection. — A car I always wanted to own & cross off my bucket-list. Turns heads, starts conversations & draws a crowd wherever I drive it. Turning it on & bringing that tach to 3/4 redline is a symphony of music that only a L76-340hp 327 can deliver.

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

Pros: I love the styling, performance, history, & all around presence of this car.

Cons: There is nothing not to like about this car.

Overall:

A Timeless Classic — It's a 1963 Corvette, built from iron and fiberglass. It's got a 340 hp, small block 327 v8. Gets abismal gas mileage. It's hot and loud. It rattles and creaks. But its a head turner and thats all that matters.

Pros: It's a classic Split Window 'vette

Cons: Not a super comfortable ride.  But that's not why we have these things.

Overall:

Needs To Be Restored — Found in a barn in 1996. Been sitting since 1983. Left to me by my dad when he passed away in 2002. Have been saving money to perform restoration. Have money now...but not time with everything else going on in my life.

Pros: 340hp 327v-8, 4speed, split window coupe

Cons: Body modifications done in the 70's, needs to be restored to original appearance.

Overall:

It's The Greatest Car I Have Ever Owned! — Awesome performance. Looks and drives like nothing ever built in the states. The split window really sets it apart but made it rough seeing the red lights of the police stopping me to look at it. I have owned this car for almost 40 years and have no plans of ever selling it.

Pros: see review above

Cons: insurance is almost not affordable

This Car Is As Close To A Show Car As You Can Get. — This car was bought as a project car and when it's said and none it is as close to a 1963 Corvette StingRay show car. The paint is one of the best on the east coast and it looks and drives great.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a great looking car.  This 1963 Corvette is one of the best looking in the country.

Cons: No cons it's a great car!   This car is NOT a matching number car, but it is a great driver.
