gmhdfan.

NOPE

actually have a GMC 1500 pickup and my grampappies old lincoln whuich got donated.

I am a german car fan. My M Coupe never gave me any touble. And teh interior was trick plus t handled exquisitley and was very quick. Not quite as fast as a new vette but quick none the less. I happened to like the interior appointments better as well as the exterior styling (some peopel really hated the way my car looked though, but i liked it)

Ron, I would look around for a vintage vette from the 60s or 70s

What year did the Vette first come with Tuned Port (TPI)? I found references to 84, 85 and 86 as the first year. I know 87 had it but when was it introduced?

I had a Nova SS with side pipes. My wife still has the scars as does every old girlfriend. It was really bad if you got out of the back seat. OUCH!!!!

Ron, LMAO I even burnt my left hand a couple of times getting out of my Vette after having a few too many to drink. Sobers you up real fast. Not that I would drink and drive anymore.

Ron, I personally would not consider either the 84 or the 85 for
10-12K. A few thousand more and you would be into a 92. Last week I saw a 2003 coupe with low miles at a Knoxville Chevy dealer for $24,900?? Besides the point but there are some great deals out there on newer corvettes.
