My next Vette will be older. Unless Chevy makes a new retro C2 or C3
I'm the 3rd owner, I got it with 11k miles.

But, I want to buy a wasted C2 conv't or C3 t-top car and restore it to new condition. N

Not to "factory" standards, but so it's a great cruiser and it is custom made for me. So, that would mean a non-matching #s motor, custom paint and custom wheels, lots of modern suspension components, and some cool interior work.:thumbsup:

This one was a two owner. Bought new ones before, and that has its advantages also.

Good idea about restoring an older one. I did that with a C3 convertible before. It turned out to be a pretty nice car, real fun to drive. :)

My 88 was used.

They next one I buy would be a used one as well. I would be WAY too over protective if I bought it scratchless.

1985 Coupe...

bought it a couple of months ago. Technically, I am the third owner. I bought it from Steve Hunter who sells Corvette parts on ebay. He bought the car to part out. When he verified it was a one owner and noticed it was too nice to part out (72,000 miles)He advertised it and I bought it. Steve only had it for a few months. Wow, this car was an eyelash away from a death of dismemberment. There will be a happy ending for this car.:)
