Default 57 vette project

I’m kind of looking for another car, and stumbled on this. Not what I’m looking for, but neat. Right now I’m flip-flopping between an early c3 convertible or c7 ( if prices drop next year).

The only thing is it seems a bit high, when you think of the money and time to make it nice.

I think it’s been for sale off and on all summer.

I dunno. I was where you are when the C5 was in production for a while and was torn between a C2 or chrome bumper C3 and a new(ish) C5 (soon to be replaced by the C6. But niced used C5 were still $30K. So I bought a project. At this point in time I have more money and less seat time in the C3 than I would have had in the C5.

So between the two, I vote for the C6.

Decisions, Decisions, one nice thing about the older cars is minimal depreciation and no inspection. We’ll see what happens.

Your 502 convertible should be a blast. A pro stock 502 sounds interesting to say the least.
