The Car Is Awesome — The C3 corvette is immensely fun to drive. It certainly has the looks and the power. However, is only a two-seater and it has no hatch so you unless you can get over the seats its not going in the car.

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

Pros: It has the power, t-tops, and its corvette red.

Cons: Fuel consumption is atrocious.

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

Pros: fun to drive

Cons: needs complete resto

My Second Most Favorite, Sorry Guys The H-d Comes First. — This is a blast to drive, pull off the T-tops and cruise. A little low on power from the factory but I love the body lines and handleing. This is my most prized car of the 10 vehicles I own.

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

Pros: True sports car w/good handling

Cons: Not real popular with the masses

Pathetic — This was the last American car I ever bought. Nor will I ever buy any American car in the future. I bought the car brand new after having owned a '73 Vette, which I also had bought new. It was literally in the shop more than it was on the road - massive electrical problems, leaks, rattles (of course), etc., etc. After putting up with it for 3 months, I bought a Datsun Z and never looked back.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Looked good

Cons: Horrendous build quality

Lil' Corvette That Could! — This is a picture of someone elses Vette! It's what I hope mine looks like when I'm done restoring it. With the oil crisis of the seventies, the big powerfull V8's were no more.... instead you got meager 185 horse 225 ft/lbs torque, smog pump, non performers. But that can be changed ;^)

Pros: C3's were/are the sexiest looking vette ever made

Cons: trying to find original parts for a 30 year old car.

My '78 Corvette — It is a classic so who couldn't love it. It is sleek while looking intimidating and has power. Even better there is so much you could do with it. Engine compartment has plenty of space unlike new cars so it is easy to work on. Only downside I see can't drive it in the rain or snow.

Pros: Nice power and great build.

Cons: Vehicle works off vaccuum system.  One part goes down sometimes it takes the rest.

My 78 Vette — i bought ths car when i was 16, in 2002. it wasnt that good looking when i bought it, so i start doing every thing from the beggining. so here we are now.. but still because it a very old car, it needs maintenance from time to time and still i have to give it more attention cuz of its old age... the best thing about it that there are few of it on my country and you cant get one because there are no more for sale.. generally the car is soo gergeous and sexy.. i just love it..

Pros: almost a classic

Cons: very old

My 1978 Corvette — It has the little 350 bored to a 355, so it's not really the speedy beast one might expect from a Vette. But, it's all about just being a VETTE, baby. Some engine work would definitely help, though! It has alot of original GM components...they certainly don't build them like they used to! I mean, that stuff is 30 years old and still works. It's the shiz! All in all, I love it because I've always wanted one. Why? It has those super sexy curves!

Pros: Curves, lovey

Cons: Expensive parts
