1990 Steel Blue #50
I wanted to thank everyone from all the info on this site and links. I've been lurking for a few months and ended buying this from North Star Corvettes in Mtn View on Friday and will be towing it home on Monday. This is the same car listed in post #5 & 24 on the for sale thread. Does anyone know this car? My understanding is that this has been for sale for years because of the initial high asking price but that quite a few people have seen it and decided not to buy.

It is an aerobody roadster 6sp. I owned a '90 roadster auto from '95-'99 and in spite of it breaking down all the time (3 alternators and injectors in 30k miles) I have loved Vettes for as long as I can remember and am back to take more abuse ; )

welcome, Welcome, WELCOME! :cool

I recognized your name from many ebay car bids over the past year or two... Good deal on finally getting one of these amazing cars, joining us in the ranks of ownership :cool

Re: your car - I know Turbo Luigi looked at the car and I think Jonstr did as well - in fact, Jonstr looked at it recently, before buying his Speedster last month :upthumbs

Here are a few links w/ your car as the subject - I hope this helps and again, Welcome :beer

Welcome Gaymond! That's what is fun about this forum, always finding new owners that want to forum together. It also seems that the "stored units" are finding good homes now! That is an awesome color.

I think I may have looked at that car. This is the one with the rare Kool-Off windshield, right? If so, I think you can find a photo of the car here.

That is a beautiful car, and I absolutely love that Steel Blue color. As I recall the car had great documentation with it as well.

Congratulations and enjoy! Please post a few more photos also.

Yes, that is the car. I just made it home safely and the first thing I check is to check for replies to this thread : )

Here are some pics after arriving home from Mountain View. It rained on the car on the drive home so it is filthy. I probably need to find a shop to make sure everything is 100% as the clutch seems really soft and the car does hesitate and doesn't seem that quick. Does anyone have recommendations for a shop in LA County?
