Teethed on 1954 Beast at 17, at 76 in 1986 Beauty

Found the car a handful at first, brought home after checking paper trial, only had a 100 miles, this was July 2021! At 76 knew would have to be ready to replace all the obvious things, so replaced the battery, had it installed to watch specifically to see how thry opened the hood:) Then got oil change put 30 weight oil and took it to be smogged. First car I ever have had that passed smog first time:) Still it would not start and used my AAA a few times to start until decided to check all the things I did on my Scout and old Mercedes. The overflow had serious pressure build up, us old farts called vapor lock, check the oil, tranny fluids. Closed the hood, car started right up! So the next day just tried to start, it started so thought my cure was not:) But drove it in pretty hot temperature that day. The next day would not start, so vented the overflow, left the hood up and kicked it over and it started? Then a little latter it started to overheat, weather was really bad heat wise so cut it some slack, but after it just kept going after 250, which is what they told me this engine liked I got scared, thought thermostat or even water pump was taking a crap, turned out that I had a hair pin hole in one exhaust and the air conditioning unit needed servicing, being a Veteran never liked air conditioning, always was more problem then benefit, but on this the price to fix and part replacement and a few loose plug wires were all it needed. They told me to bring it back after 60,000 miles to get it tuned:) Had to put a new front end assembly cost close to 1500 but knew that before I bought from another retired Navy Veteran and could have kept driving it without doing right away. At 76 brings back memories' of being 17 with my 1954 beast, and many buds who are still out on patrol...


Great low cost performance convertible

Great car for rides on weekends and evenings. It looks great. It is fun to drive. A red Corvette convertible - who doesn't want to drive one of these|



Such a fun car to drive! Great performance, stylish, and It gets well over 20 mpg. Hate to sell this car, but need the cash


Awesome car with a powerful attitude

Beautiful car to have a sunset cruse on the beach. This car makes you feel like a teenager again. Take the top off and let the warm wind calm you from a stressful day. Feel the sunshine on your face and have a most wonderful summer you don't want to end, but look forward to the next. Anyone getting this care will make memories of a lifetime for the young and older generation.


Little Red Corvette

Dream car! Fast, fun and cool style - inside and out!! A little rough on a bumpy road, but once you are on a smooth surface, its drives great!
