??? — this car is fun to drive but it lacks power compared to the vettes just a couple years before it. it has rubber bumpers instead of chrome (chrome looks way better)it isnt worth as much. its a good car but not as cool as the 69-72's. = d

Pros: its a corvette,not very expensive,looks

Cons: not as fast loud or as good looking as 69-72's

Amazing — The ONLY thing wrong with the car was getting stuck to the leather seats. Such a great ride. You can feel the road but not the potholes. And the handling was unbelievable.

Pros: The Heritage

Cons: Gas mileage

My Custom 'vette — Has a 350 racing engine, with edelbrock performer manifold, hooker headers, flowmaster 40's with a custom exhaust, pushing around 375 hp. swapped a 700r4 tranny into it, custom front and rear bumpers off an 80 vette, molded the bumpers in to body with no seam, shaved emblems, door handles, luggage rack and mirrors, custom silver with blue pearl paint, and silver and blue interior

Pros: Its a corvette

Cons: gas guzzler, wiring is all messed up from previous owner

Runs Good And It Is A Real Head Turner. — me and my grandpa bought this vette and restored it ourselves. overall it took us around a year or so to do the whole car. we striprd all the paint and added fibrglass front and rear bumpers. we painted the car orange flame, which is a factory color for this model vette. we built a 350 engine for the car. the motor has been bored, and has roller rocker arms, larger valves in the heads, and we put a big cam in it to. the car runs good, but the automatic trans and the 3.08 rear end gears dont give it the acceleration it needs.

Pros: t-tops, good paint job, strong motor

Cons: high rearend gears, automatic transmission

Very Fast For A Late Seventies Vette. — This is a 1976 Stingray with the L48 engine (350 V8) and the 3-speed automatic tranny. It is painted poppy orange which i think looks pretty good on it. I love this style of Vette but I would rather have a late sixties or early seventies model because they have more power.

Pros: Killer looks and very fast.

Cons: It is 32 years old so it does have its issues.

A Pleasure To Drive And To Maintain! —

I currently own my 2nd '76 Vette. I wish I'd kept my first, but I am contented with the one I have now. Probably the best thing about these cars is how easy they are to fix. A Haynes manual and an assembly book cover most of what goes wrong. I think most people expect the car to last by doing nothing, but a little maintenance every once in awhile goes a long way. There are three things (IMHO) that you should keep working, no matter what: the headlight operation, the gauges, and most importantly, the A/C. Aside from the styling, these are the most unique parts of the car. Nearly every muscle car of this era struggles with interior comfort, but the Corvette AC unit does as good a job as most current vehicles. Most parts and maintenance items are on the shelf, and eBay keeps hard-to-find items available if not found locally. Lastly, I like these cars for DRIVING, not storing. I laugh when I go to a car show and see trailer queens being rolled out. I realize and respect cars of such caliber, but they're not for me. Give me a ground-pounding, rail-cornering 'Vette any day and you'll have people staring as much as any showroom quality model.

Owner for 7 years, 5 months

Miles Driven per Year:8,000

Pros: Eye-catcher, easy to fix, easy to modify, FUN TO DRIVE

Cons: Convertible not available, too many aren't kept up properly

Built To Last — This car has 88,000 miles on it. I am the second owner and pretty clueless when it comes to maintenance. I change the oil on occasion and replace the gaskets when needed. Everything else I leave to the mechanics [although that is a very rare - 1x/5yrs? event]. Regardless, the old beast starts up the first time, every time. Absolutely amazing engine.

Pros: Looks, muscle

Cons: uncomfortable seat position

White Lightning Fast — Have original 350 small block on engine stand. Had custom engine made with all the power bells and whistles. 450 horse power, great condition regarding body and interior. Fun to drive, enjoy taking it to shows in the spring and summer. Last year for the Stingray.

Pros: Nothing like a Corvette Stingray!

Cons: none
