Aging Beauty — I've had new and I have had old Vette's... I like the old the best. This one is a keeper it's looks are irresistible, it's condition impeccable. I'm thinking rather replace it with something new, I'm gonna modify and soup up the mechanicals

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

Pros: Head turner, simple to own, unique styling, good value.

Cons: Not quick, aging chassis, not real fuel efficient.

A Fun To Drive Piece Of Corvette History. — A fun car to drive. Definitely an attention getter when you are out on the road. The car handles very well. It has very responsive steering and braking. Is a little lacking in the horsepower department. The early 80's wasn't know for big horsepower engines. Overall, still a fun car to drive and to own.

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

Pros: Last year of the C3 body style.  Very sexy looking car.

Cons: Not as much power as you'd expect from a Corvette.

If U Like The Look And Don't Mind The Handling Issue Get It!! — Performance after I did somethings (pistons, cam, crank, etc.) was unbelievable. Handling could be better though. Its an 82'... things are gonna start to go. The car appelas to me a lot. It is a matter of preference, but it is a sporty looking car that will get a lot of looks. The cars american so maintenance is simple and cheap if you can't do it yourself. Gas mileage is low but what would u expect from a sports car. This car is very very fun.

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

Pros: Fun and you get a lot of looks... can make a great 1/4 mile car

Cons: handling is mediocre... It's a classic so be prepared to repair and replace parts.

It's Great — First year of crossfire injection. Haven't had any problems with it and it gives it good milage. Engine should have more power. This was original two toned blue, but it has been repainted in some other blue colors that makes it alot prettier than the original.

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

Pros: Paint, wheels, looks great

Cons: Not enough power

For Someone's First 'vette, It's Definately Worth The Price Of Admission. — aside from the stock automatic transmission (only transmission offered on the model yr) she's perfect, starts every time, looks cooler than spit, very little lag on the trans (albeit it took some tinkering) and 'vettes have only gotten better since.

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

Pros: a 'vette is a 'vette, is a 'vette

Cons: lack of a stock standard transmission

A True Classic — A real head turner, this was a beautiful piece of art. I loved taking the t-tops off and just cruising. The acceleration left a little to be desired (cross fire injection?) and the gas mileage was, of course, crap. But man, this car was so much fun it was worth it to me. I hated to sell it when I came to Europe...

Pros: beautiful curves...

Cons: not very practical unless you're young and single

She's My Beautiful Baby! — I love the glass t-tops, the leather interior, the variety of the colors for the collector's edition. It's one cleek and sexy machine!

Pros: It does not show dirt easily, runs really well.  

Cons: You need to be sure and keep leather conditioner on the seats and steering wheel cover.  As it's an earlier model Vette you almost fall into the car to get in and getting out is sometimes a problem, but it's worth the extra effort! :-)

Greatest Car Ever Designed By Man! — The car needs a lot of updating in the interior, there's a lot of squeaks and rattles. All of them are fixable. I already put in a new sound system in. At some point in the future there will be a better engine and transmission put in. The car is awesome like it is, but no car is ever too good for improvement.

Pros: There is no car out there with better body lines than this!

Cons: The engine is alright but really needs more power.
