1977 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 350 from North America
It rocks the house for sure bro
I bought the car and loved it.
I put on Hooker headers, Edelbrock high performance manifold intake, Flowmaster high performance exhaust, new valve covers, timing chain, harmonic balancers, complete tuneup, new front end and alignment.
New air filter, air filter cover, new wiring under the hood, new wiring under the dash.
New white wheels, new Cooper tires.
Oil change 20w 50w oil. New antifreeze.
A total of 8000.00 dollars; I bought it for 8800.00. Have about 17000.00 in my baby doll. I also had it pinstriped.
It runs great. It goes 140 miles per hour, gets a lot of stares, and thumbs up, especially when I pop the tops. It's medium red, with white interior; a real head turner for sure. I am glad I bought it.
It's bad on gas and oil, but I do not mind, I did not buy an economy car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Fait acompli, but although it would have made more sense to spend that $17K on a lower mileage C5 as a daily driver... the heart always wins out over the head when sports cars are involved!

I would pick out a C5 for him. Total redesign, better drivetrain. New platform. I’ve had them all.

The C4 loses value over most wanting the C5 for a little more. The C5 is better on insurance vs hood fender cost more to fix in the C4. Then there are more electrical issues with the C4. The C4 does not have the superior LS engine. The C4 has less horsepower.

I am the proud owner of the aforementioned 1977 Corvette. I like the coke bottle style and the rarity of seeing one on the road. Most owners make their classic corvette a garage queen, not I. It's not good for a car to sit in the garage most of its life. I like the C3 Corvettes, because they are unique. A C5 is one of thousands out there. I see them everyday, all day. A beautiful C3 is rare indeed.

Take some cool photos kneeling from behind looking down the side. You are right on the styling.
