Default Finally got a chrome bumper car.

I sold my '80 4 or 5 years ago, mostly because I wanted a chrome bumper car. Through some complicated horse trading, I have finally got one.

I started out with this:

which got traded with some cash for another Mustang. Then I traded that Mustang for the Corvette and got some cash back.

AFAICT, it's mostly original, including the paint. It's got some flaws, but it's in great driver condition.

Great looking 'Vette! The hardtops always looked great on the 'verts too. They must be a PITA to store, remove, etc, but man, do they look good sitting on the car!
