Default 82 Owners Pics & Descriptions....

Tried to get the 82 Pics Section going in the "sticky", but having a hard time copying the "attached images" and inserting them into the "sticky" itself. They will not copy or post, so rather than having complications with transfering pics, here is a new thread for our 82's pics and descriptions. That way we can all post our own pics and add any info about what we are doing to maintain and enjoy our rides.
So we need "mashmc' & prlwng to repost their pics in this thread. Hope we can get this going...........thanks.......Tom

And as always the link to our 82 "sticky" whenever the need arises.

My 82 "dd" when it's washed and looking halfway decent
Over 111,000 miles on the Vette, it will be 2 years of ownership for me March 22nd and I have put just about 44,000 miles on it since purchased.
You should have seened it the other day loaded with salt.... but it washed right off...
My goal is to keep it running forever.... Tom

Very nice looking. I bet everyone seeing it in the snow had different opinions. Nice seeing something other than white. Nothing against white, I own one.

Got the exact one that I wanted since 1982 while a college senior - the interior and exterior colors, full set of options, and, yes, the legendary crossfire which nothing could touch in `82.

thanks Al, they sure do double takes I still have the crack in the left front fender, someday I'll find the time to repair or get it repaired... So how about posting your a pic of that white 82 you have???

This is my 82. It was purchased in pretty bad shape and I have been doing mostly mechanical things. New front suspension rebuild, trans, cooling, brakes, hoses, lines, belts, etc...I love the white. It hides a LOT of flaws.

Another two tone blue 82 here! I had her out yesterday, cruising with my wife, before this latest round of snow, sleet and rain. 70 degrees in north Alabama yesterday, 30 this morning...

How about another two tone blue 82!! Wonder how many silver blue/dark blue 82s are still out there? Only just over 1600 of that color combo were produced.

Keep posting pics of your 82's, I know I am enjoying them
I almost purchased a Two-Tone Blue, and ended up with my Silver/Blue.
I really wanted to get a Two-Tone White & Gray, but that was not to be.....that color combo seems hard to find, at least 2 years ago it was...... Tom

Finished this project last year after spending a year in the making: Took it to my first corvette show at Silver Springs in Ocala, Florida and won "Ladies Choice."

Another nice color combo I think I'll just get one of each, so that way I can have them all.......
Still have the White/Gray on the top of my list.......Tom

Beautiful cars. But, I still think the C4's through C7's are an acquired personal taste that I haven't yet been able to acquire but will keep working on it.


Thanks for your service in the Marines, by the way. A sincere thank you.

SSROADSTER-your twin
When I purchased it 8 yrs. ago it had 37k, I've put another 13k on it. I'm the third owner(father/son had it originally). Had minor problems with the crossfire originally, other than that all have been maintenance and replacement of aged parts.

yes it is, but only you are the better looking twin you have kept yourself in better condition, if only I followed in your footsteps.....

It's interesting that you made a comment about the height. I always thought the back set about an 1" high and the front was an 1" low. I have the longer bolts to lower the back, but just haven't taken the time to change them. The height of the car is what it was 8 years ago when I purchased it. I'm the 3rd owner-originally it was a father/then son car. It had 38K on it when I bought it. This picture is before I had it painted(same color) 2 years ago. The picture doesn't show it, but the original color had faded quite a bit. Maybe I should leave the height alone.
