Eye Catcher — I really enjoy driving this car since I have had the seats totally rebuilt & recovered. It is quite peppy with a rebuilt 350 and handles great since the entire suspension has been re-done. It always generates interest when I take it to a cruise-in or just to the grocery store!

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

Pros: Classic Stingray styling, Handles well

Cons: Stiff Ride

Wow! —

Im just telling people what I have done to my car to modernize it a bit, make it better, and be different from other similar 1969 Corvettes. A 1969 Corvette clean and polished looks great anywhere. How I personalized my car is equipping it with dual 500 cfm quads, Edelbrock heads, carburetors, a built custom cam, Hooker headers, American Racing 200S rims on Hankook tires. Updated the leather interior, dropped in new 5 speed transmission, new brakes, new rear suspension and all gone through. This car is fun to drive, and is fast. I enjoy taking it to car shows. At times I trophy. I have my grandson help clean the car. Im sorry if this sounds like an add to sell the car, but it is not. I was driving to breakfast one morning and a brand new Corvette pulled up and indicated they wanted to race. Three out of three times left it in the rear view mirror. Driver got upset and turned off and left. 445 HP helps! Must of been a careful novice driver. A good driver should of made it a close race. I love my old Corvette. Takes a licking, keeps ticking. In 2016 I got rid of the dual quad system and put on a EFI dual throttle body system and fuel command center. It starts up quickly now, has faster low end response thanks in part to welding on a H-pipe in the exhaust system, and the acceleration is much quicker, and smoother. I added some new pictures on the throttle body set-up. Enjoy the pictures, I enjoy the car. Thanks for all the positive comments.

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

Pros: Great lines, lots of power, looks great, fun to drive.  Thumbs up when I go out from other drivers.  Big Hankook H101s help hug the road. Big cam and headers turns heads and sets off car alarms. :-).  5 speed helps off the line/ top end and fuel econ.  Easy repair parts, not expensive.

Cons: Old, needs care. Stock suspension sucks, lots of under steering.  Too much power in turns and you do donuts.

Great Car — Beautifully restored numbers matched 427cid/4 speed roadster. Runs great and is a very fun car to drive. Restoration began in 2010 and completed in the spring of 2014, a frame off, rotisserie restoration, every inch of the car was refurbished or replaced, a show winner for sure.

Pros: Numbers Matched

Cons: None

My Hot Rod! — To HOT to drive in Hot Florida Summer! Great for conversations. Everyone loves the looks and sounds of this car. I can not stop to get gas without someone asking me about it. Many times at Stop lights people will ask me about it!

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

Pros: I love this car.  It runs great, sounds great and is easy to maintain.  No Power accessories, just power!  Number match on almost everything.  Buy parts on E-bay!

Cons: No Air in Florida!   Black Interior! Pretty Hot in the afternoon!   Mostly morning and evening rides.

Classic American Roadster — The Corvette is a classic icon. It attracts attention wherever it goes. This one is a small block which helps it handle pretty good due to less weight over the front wheels compared to the big block cars. It is fun to drive and has plenty of power to spare!

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

Pros: Timeless styling. Great engine.

Cons: Not great on gas, but what the heck, it is a Corvette!

Not A Supercar Like A Ford Gt Or An Aero But Right Up There With Cobra's, Etc. — These old vette's will smack you back in the seat and spin the meats right thru third gear if you hole shot them, & there's nothing like cubic inches & high compression to make you smile, the Muncie 4spd. Rock-Crusher trans will jolt your teeth in every gear, these were more of a straight line car but it does handle suprisingly well in the corners as long as you keep your foot in it, give it too much & it will swap ends on you in the blink of an eye so it's not a car that you want to let get out in front of you. If you get too complacent, you'll be buying body parts. but it a gas to drive.

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

Pros: This is a 350 hp-350 cu. in. 4 spd. car w/AC ,T-Tops and a drop out rear window, one of only a few yrs. that had this option. It is a number matching Red on Red Orig. car but is driven quite often, not a trailer queen.

Cons: This is a 11 to1 compression rate motor & really likes 103 octane leaded fuel, @ the pump I'm paying around $7.80 a Gal. for gas, repairs seem to occur often and to get them done right can be costly

It's A Cruiser Not A Racer — You can't beat the look of the american muscle cars. and who doesn't like the concept of a big ass engine for lots and lots of speed? you always long for some better suspension when driving these cars, but who cares, they look awesome

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

Pros: it looks awesome

Cons: sports car with poor suspension

Bad Ass Baby — my childhood dream car-finally got it-completely original- needs a new paint job, but it still turns heads everywhere I take it. It is truly cash in the carport- rally sport pak with removable hard top convertible-soft top built in. What else can I say? She's bad to the bone!!!
