63 years yikes! I actually prefer the 1967. If I were to win the lottery a corvette is NOT on my want list though. I know it wouldn't be on YOURS lol. Maybe if you found one left out in a farm field for forty years.

Our convertible is 52 years old. We had to upgrade the suspension, brakes and add power steering. When we first got it I had a hard time really enjoying it as it drove like a truck now it's a lot of fun but still nothing like what is available these days.

You have one 52 years old? You must be enjoying it now! A least doesn't sit. Like a friend of mine had a 1962 red and white convertible garaged and sold it about nine years ago for $36,000. Probably at the time it was a good price but imagine they go for a LOT more now. I do not like the way they ride either and felt I was sitting so low and could barely see over the steering wheel lol. I am sure there are plenty of people that would give anything to have one.

Driving a Corvette is like No Other. Ask Todd, he'll tell you there isn't anything like driving a Corvette, especially today's models...

We love the classic lines of our 1965 but it's not a rare numbers matching, loaded factory HP model. It is a standard run of the mill corvette with a mildly modified 327-300hp engine, 4-speed - serves it's purpose for giving us enjoyment without being jailed in a garage.
I have driven a new C7 and it's absolutely awesome! We don't have the space and our budgeting goals don't allow for a new toy.....yet.

Exactly Maddog10! I've owned three Corvettes. My 3rd (current) one is my bucket-list car: a 2016 Z06. It's more beautiful and powerful than I ever imagined a Corvette would be. Puts a smile on my face every time.
