Bottom line: This Corvette is for someone looking for a reliable, well-sorted C2 Corvette that shows well and can be driven regularly (even long-distances) while it continues to appreciate in value. You could fly in and enjoy driving it home. I looked for 3 years before purchasing this Corvette and had every intention of keeping it forever, which explains why I spent extra for quality everything as I improved it, but life has a way of changing our best-laid plans.
