Here is my new hobby:
I really like this car for many reasons:-It looks great, nice shapes and very clean outside. almost 1 piece body
-It is not so conventional (fibreglas body)
-It sounds great V8, 5.7L :) no need to add strange mufflers an so
-It has quite a bit of power. ok so there are faster and stronger cars now but its 24 years old..
-Targa roof :)
-Easy to work on, simple mechanics and so I can work on it myself
-Its a corvette, not just any car (and you still get almost every part)
-Its a legend.
-No need to add funky shit. its great as it is.
-sexy car :) (if i woud have to get a different one i'd get a cobra)
-ok so it is not practical, but everybody turns around when I drive by :)
Check my Corvette photo gallery for lots more photos.
Thats me, it looks great for a 28 year old car :)
