Old Corvettes were impressive performance FOR THEIR TIME FRAME. The fact of the matter is the last of the Neons had similiar horsepower numbers to the early emmissions Corvettes (75-80). Old Corvettes have suspension that is about equivilant to go-carts.

I had a 75 convertible. I had a lot of fun with it and it was a great car. I really enjoyed it. That being said I knew what it was and what it was not. It was an awesome car compared to those of 1975. Compared to modern cars... not so much. If you are wanting one for the "cool" factor they have them. For performance you have to go to the modern ones.

Also be aware you step down into them and step up out of them. They are not exactly easy to get in and out of (the 84's up especially). Awesome cars though just know what they are (and what they are not)

Don't know much about Corvettes, but this one was in the shop where I work when I started. Was parked there for almost 25 years. We got it out and the shop owner had it worked on and can now drive it again. He bought it new in '67 and used it for about 20 years. Engine is the 427 with 3 carbs and all that could be ordered, that's what they told me. Now, there's 2 more lathes and space to walk instead of that Corvette there at the shop.

Hardtop, nice!!! If I'm not mistaken, the first 3 generations had build numbers leaning toward the 'vert side, making the hardtops a bit rarer. Fully optioned big block on top of that, and you have a six figure car (at least it was worth that about five years ago).
