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

Vette78 — Its the only car u will regret if u sell ....! Old yeah, but speedy, tough in driving, not so easy for handling, great body shape and material, light and strong fiber glass, had hard time to get some stuff repaired and to find the spare parts, interior not so good cuz it costs hell to buy new parts so i had to live with the interior i had, bought it with good price, but to overhaule the engine and get it perfect i spent 1000 dinars, then at the end the resale price is the same! its so nice to drive, if u find good deal, buy it or let me know ;) but if u wanna drive car without hard time in gerages or spare part shops, or dont wanna spend money for this old shark,, dont think about it

Pros: Looks, engine

Cons: Interior parst and chasis parts

Fun Car- Great Attention Grabber — -car has superior handling and good traction on dry pavement. -has a timeless body style -Grade A American muscle car!!

Pros: C3 vette with year one of the fast back for this generation.

Cons: 220 horse power aint enough.  Production of the 427 big block was brought to a stop in the 70's because of the fuel crisis.  These cars were stocked with underpowered 350 ci engines.  Packs a good punch, but can 't compete with newer cars, even some with 6 cylinders.
