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.

Overall:

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.

I owned the silver anniversary corvette. Loved every thing about it. Had goodies on it, to make it sound and perform better. I had it 22 years. I wanted to experience a newer vette. So I sold it :( and bought the 2006 c6.
