Well my corvette is running great since the small overhaul, I went to my wife's family reunion yesterday after my Air Force Reserve duty... I went over donner's pass which is a fairly steep upgrade and the vette did fantastic... once I got there the enjoyment was over after i got out of the vette. I had 2 people ask questions about the vette and i tryed to answer as honest as possible. one of the questions were "Do corvette's got up in value" hmmmm let me think and the answer was yes. the other question was is my 80 vette comfortable... and the answer was pretty much , but it isn't like riding in a brand new luxury car that's not what that year vette was designed for.. and on to the usual chit chat. later on went home in the dark and enjoyed every minute in the vette.. live long and prosper...
