1979 Chevrolet Corvette Factory

Imagine the sexiest year of the curvy corvettes... then taking this broken old dog and turning it into a rubber burning blast to drive!
This has been a labor of love and pain for the last four years, and alas it has to go to make room for a more 'fatherly' vehicle. I have more than $45k invested in this baby between parts and shop time. I may cry when she finally leaves!
Black 1979 Chevrolet Corvette T-Top. 4553 miles on the whole car after the rebuild and new engine. 86,000 original miles before complete rebuild.
