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.

A Proud-to-own Classic — Sure, this generation wasn't the best on gas effeciency, but it's still a sleek car that outperforms a Porsche of the same year!

Pros: Highway transmission provides insane acceleration while going 40 mph or more

Cons: Highway transmission does not provide insane acceleration from a standstill...

Looks Awesome, But Is Awkward To Drive. — When I drove it, it was really hard to handle. If you move the steering wheel a little bit it turns a lot. One reason for that was a part of the steering column of other similar part was broken. It was also wierd to sit so far back in the car. I love the silver color and shape of it.

Pros: Looks awesome and has great acceleration. Nice to show off!

Cons: Obviously not much room to put stuff, the steering is awful, and parts are expensive.

An Old Friend — Fantastic car!!! I had a L-82 with a 4-speed on the silver anniversary paint. Great car, amazing to drive. This is a slow one by Corvette standards however it is still a Corvette and loads of fun. This car is completely worth it!

Pros: 4-speed, L-82, T-Tops, and 8-Track Player for the win!!!

Cons: Too much emissions crap chocks all the potential performance (Thanks '70s fuel crisis!).

Overall It Is A Great Driving Car But Not Very Practical For Me — A fun, fast car with a fresh black paint job. The T-top is good and there are no leaks. Everything in the car works to my knowledge. It has a 350 V-8 with dual exhaust. It also sounds really good. It has a stock interior and has good tires and wheels

Owner for 1 years, 8 months

Miles Driven per Year:3,000

Pros: Fast, fun, good handling

Cons: Not practical for a working man such as myself and i have no time to use it.

Great Set Of Wheels. — I have owned my 78 Pace Car replica vette since early 1985 and basically love the car. As it gets (and I get) older, however, finding good mechanics who are familiar with older vehicles is becoming progressively more difficult.

Pros: Classic looks.  Always a "head turner."

Cons: Finding knowledgeable mechanics.

If it’s the Auto Lynx 2019 for almost $60k its price is still too high. The orange metallic color is too odd for the rank and file customers desiring Corvettes. Read More
