Awesome! — I like everything about this car. Its 41 years old and still looks fantastic! Its a very beautiful car and runs great! You would have a hard time finding another one in this good of shape! I only wish it had the 4 speed in it!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It still looks great at 41

Cons: It doesn't have the Muncie 4 speed in it

Fun Car To Drive And Shift The Four Speed Through The Gears And Excercise The Ponites. — The 1974 Corvette is a fun car to drive around and take to cars shows. The car wins trophies and gets great looks from other cars driving on the highway. I find the 74 a very nice looking handling car.

Pros: The 1974 corvette is very tight and handles great on curves and cruising.

Cons: Two seat convertible

'74 Vette" -awesome To Drive, Expensive To Fix — Love driving this car, even though it is modified, still gets a lot of "thumbs up". Handling is pretty good, I have replaced the weather strips around the windows and on the T Tops, but still get some leakage during a heavy rain-everall -a Fun car to drive

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

Pros: Returning to Your Youth

Cons: tough to get in, if you are a little "older"

Perfect — Performance - Well what can u expect from a big block 454 engine. A shame its not manual tho... Build Quality - Well the body work is good since is fiber glass, doesent rust. And the americans are known to make reliable engines. Appearence - Look at the photo. Do i have to say more? Sound is awesome. Cost of Ownership - Well its not the cheapest car to run but i dont pay taxes and MOT once every 2 years. Fun Factor- U might hate american cars before u drove it, but once u drove my baby youd change your mind.

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

Pros: Love the sounds, the quality and the springs hehe

Cons: Youre brittish

Damn I Miss My Car — What's not to say? Everyone has their favorite car - this is mine. When I picked it up - the body and handling was a little rough - but the motor. The motor was well-built. The previous owner had dumped about $5k into it. 350 small block - but bored, polished, all the good stuff. In the end a 383 Stroker. Damn I miss that car

Pros: Owning it

Cons: It's gone

At The Time It Was "everything." By Today's Standard - Weak. — It scooted along much better after dropping a rebuilt, blue-printed/balanced, 4-bolt main, slant plug head, small block in there. Other goodies added: Holley double-pumper, Hooker headers/side pipes, American Racing five-spoke wheels, remote/dual oil filter, Edelbrock intake, Turbo 400 transmission (with B&M shift kit), NOS (for a while), Elgin camshaft, TRW triple valve springs, etc, etc, etc.

Pros: In the 70's it was da bomb!  After rebuild ran mid-12's at Fremont Raceway all night!  

Cons: Creaky, paint quality, and handling

Best Car I Ever Owned For Week End Drives With My Wife. — L-82 & M-21 close ratio 4 speed with 3.55 rear gear is perfect power for Calif. highways and back roads. Starting out in first you have to slip clutch a little for a smooth start 3.70 rear gear would have helped. Z-07 package make the suspension stiff when new but after 40,000 on car its broken in very nice. (better ride over pot hole roads) Brake pads were very cold blooded and talked a lot. At 10.000mi went with carbon fiber. Dusty but much better for street use. Also went dot 5 brake fluid when it came out. Calipers went 75,000mi till SS calipers were needed. The Wife still sits on a small pillow. Seats were not for comfort, Now we are in our 50s 2hour ride is all our backs can take. If your in the Napa Valley wine tasting and see a yellow 74 roadster, wave hi, that will be us.

Owner for 34 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:2,300

Pros: Almost 35 years old and still so easy to get parts for

Cons: Ruff ride for a older couple, but wont give up this vette
