I Love It — I love the way it sounds, how it takes off and how if you go to 100 mph you dont even fill it. The only bad thing about my car is if your tall its hard to get out of.

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

Pros: Handles good its comfortable

Cons: Hard to get out of if your tall

'89 Vette - Diamond In The Rough —

Although it still needs some work, this is a great car to DRIVE and that's what I plan to do with it; take road trips and put some miles on it - not restore it to show-car quality and just garage it. Really fun to do research and learn about the car, too - almost as fun as driving it. I've obtained the original owners manual (invaluable), The Corvette "Black Book", and have gotten tons of help from online forums. One person put me in touch with the Corvette Museum in KY, where I was able to order the original "build sheet" and "window sticker" for the car, which had NO paperwork, at all. I do what work I can, myself (detailing, interior work) and for the rest of the work (mechanical, electrical, body work painting) I'm having done at a local shop as well as at Corvettes of Auburn, a Corvette specialty shop near Seattle. Have also been obtaining needed parts online - both from parts houses (Ecklers, Mid-America, Corvette Central, etc.) and private parties. Have learned that it pays to shop around. Have joined "Corvette Forum", online, and have gotten some great tips. People are always eager to listen and help! In all, a great Experience!

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

Pros: Just purchased this car. Engine/drivetrain in very good condition. Getting tuneup, new injectors, serp belt, Bilstein shocks, vented brakes & Michelin tires. Car has loads of options. Too many to list here. Biggest plus is that I got it cheap ($3500).

Cons: Car has been neglected for the past 1-2 years. Has some body damage: front hood clip and wing need replacements, ground skirts need repair, but car will be completely stripped and sanded down to primer and repainted. Needs new interior carpeting. Leather seats are intact but power seat needs some repairs, steering wheel may need replacing, stereo unit (and probably speakers) are toast. Under-hood and under-dash electrical has issues.

Nasd Vette — I have owned my vette for 6 months and it's a great car to own. It has plenty of accelerations, handles very well, and I just gave it a fresh paint job to clean it up. Awesome car to own.

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

Pros: enjoy having it

Cons: nothing
