Driving the old Corvette

The late 70s and early 80s were definitely a low point for Corvette design. This is not the overpowered hooligan car that some people imagine. This car has the L48 350 cu. in. motor that GM rated at 190hp and 280 ft. lb. of torque. It motivates the car OK but isn't surprisingly fast or really all that exciting to drive. People like the look of it though and driving it around is kind of cool in an 80s American car sort of way.

I've been driving it for a few months and tinkering with those things that need attention - lights, stereo, etc. Other things that need repaired will wait until I'm deeper into the project - power steering cylinder, suspension, etc.
