And here I thought this thread was safe to enter.... thanks Drum
As to insurance... with gas prices what they are they probably figure you aren't going to have it on the road all that much
Nice ride though Jim, hope you get plenty of enjoyment out of it!!!
So I are you going to trim it in wood? Then you might have the only woody vette!

Plus Jimmy has two HUGE advantages besides the obvious blessing of having no childgods to raise;
- He's an HVAC guru on a warming planet and,
- He has no wife to torment him about his personal expenditures.
Yes, Bink-E, there are still some who roam the lanes, wild and free and without a care for dead presidents or dead fossils.
PS: The enthusiasts' mag that I read refers to automatic transmissions as "slush boxes".
When I can no longer find a clutch and gearshift in an automobile, then I shall no longer drive.

You would actually be suprised at the gas mileage that a corvette gets. Mine has an LT-1 that was 300hp stock she is slightly modified now and gets 21-23 city and 25-26 highway. As long as you drive sensible she isn't to bad on fuel, now if you keep your foot in it you will get around 15-17 city and 19-21 hwy.

won't look at the camera
That is very nice, I like that era of vette quite a bit. My boss has a '90 sitting in his garage for his firstborn son...luck bastid
On the insurance thing, its surprising, but in NJ an extra vehicle is very chaep. Between the multicar discount, and the fact that you can't drive two cars at once, its pretty cheap.
Actually, last year I dropped my extra car off my insurance. My blazer hadn't been running so i'd figured we'd drop it and save some money...wrong. Since the blazer was my primary driver, and didn't have full coverage, when I switched to my honda that does have full coverage my insurance actually went UP when I dropped a vehicle I can't win.

Lost the Daylight
That's very sweet looking!
My dad has a red '72 which he enjoies tooling around in during the summer. Did you insure it (on the road) for summers only or all year? Dad just takes his out from May-September, so he has a decent rate for a summer ride.
Soooo... are you going to post more pictures?
Are you going to look out for a 'Vette club? There's a bunch around New England that take their cars out and tour around on some weekends together. I guess it's a ton of fun. I don't know if that's too "Old fogie" for ya, since most of the members are my dad's age.
Anyway, she's a beauty! Take good care of her!
The correct question is, "Why don't I need another gun?"
How strange to see a lagomorph of such bravery.

jimmy taking out the battery on those vettes is always a joy.
get yourself, if you don't already own one a swiveling socket extension for your 3/8th drive ratchet, a decent side terminal ratcheting battery wrench. Those 2 tools will shave 30 minutes off your battery removal time, considering the cross braces you have to remove to get the battery out to start with.
