    Best Exterior Design Ytd — In my opinion the C3 body style is unsurpassed by any thing Chevy has manufactured to date. Unfortunately GM failed to realize that and installed woefully underpowered engines in most of them. I really happy to see more articles written about the C3’s and hope that GM will make an effort to provide us with more support in the way of better parts at a reasonable price

    Pros: Body style is excellent and still a head turner

    Cons: Lack of horse power

    Summer Fun — Bought this beauty back in 1992 with 30000 miles. This car has been fourteen years of nothing but alot of fun and joy. There is nothing like taking out those t-tops on a hot summer night and going for a cruise,great filling. I now have 43000 miles on ths car now and have had no problems what so ever to speak of. Great car . Can't wait till spring to pull it out of the garage. J G Murphy

    Old Corvette — I just completed a full restoration on this car and did not re-build to be a show car or to keep stock, I built the 350 up to 400 plus HP. This car has a 4 speed and is really setup for 1/4 mile racing, but it is very street able if you can afford to drive much at 11 MPG ! just a toy

    Great Starter Car For Someone — Really like the car and it's looks wish that was a better year for muscle cars !!! Since it's historic you can pull the engine and re-billed or put a nice create motor in then it will be a very nice ride

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

    Pros: Good looking car second nicest of C-3s

    Cons: Bad year for a Hi-Po car gas was hard to get so they made cars that tried to burn less

    I Want To Go Disco Every Time I Get Behind The Wheel!! — Love the look. Later C3 but has L82 option and 4-speed. I love the look with the Pace Car spoiler package. Rare factory order A/C delete, manual crank windows and close-ratio trans Vette. I'll never get rich from this car but I still love her!

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

    Pros: It's a Vette!

    Cons: If you love the Blue Oval

    This car may have lacked power which is an easy fix but it was way ahead in time for its design in handling, ride and comfort...
    Cargo Capacity Ranked 1979 Pontiac Firebird better.
    "Firebird had fold down rear seats and a trunk where as the corvette had a cargo area behind the driver and passenger seat. No trunk but the car was a sports car not a family car..."
    Family Car Ranked 1979 Pontiac Firebird better.
    "Seats 4 people."
