1986 Vette — Bought for autox & track events as well as cruising around town. After some modifications, the car met or exceeded my expectations. Pretty good technology & features for a 29 year old car. Good motor & everything held up well to all driving conditions.

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

Pros: Awesome handling.  Great low end torque.  Fun to drive.

Cons: Low seating / driving position

I Love It. — Look great for the year and handles great on the road. I have seen some that look good but not head turners like mine. I love to go on long rides with it on good days. It feels almost like riding on my motorcycle.

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

Pros: Looks good.Fast car

Cons: Not too good on gas in the city.

Clear Title. Real Classy. — This is one of a kind. It's looks like it's racing while sitting still. Eyes turn when this beauty passes by. The power is refreshing and impressive. Smooth on the Interstate and struts in the City. This red beauty need do nothing to "show off".

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

Pros: Gorgeous Red Color. Looks great! Runs like a muscle car should.

Cons: Seats worn. One headlamp motor needs replacing. Dashlights out.

If You Have Ever Considered Owning A Vette, Just Go With It, You Will Not Regret It — People either love, or hate the corvette, I always wanted a vette, and I am so glad that this one came into my life. I love my car and and am excited everytime I get behind the wheel. This is my own little get away from the wife and kids when I really need a break.

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

Pros: Fast, Beautiful, Head turner

Cons: I wish the higher rpm range had more push of engine

1986 Corvette — Corvettes are great, reliable cars with good performance and GREAT value! I Can't wait to buy a newer one! You always get loads of attention, plus it's cool to tell everyone you own a corvette, it's a great conversation peice. I wouldn't mind trading mine in for a c5 though!

Pros: Value, reliability, performance, and yes, even gas mileage! 32+ MPG!! Seriously...

Cons: Not much. They run hotter than I like, but mine has only over heated once.
