Geez. They are all attractive in a way, but most are very far beyond repair.

I'd love to get my hands on that maroon '63 that still looks to be in halfway decent shape...that'd make one heck of a build.

Of course, I like my car plenty.

I don't have a picture, but in southern Maine, for years, on an old dirt road there was a 65 Corvette hood up, carb off for YEARS and year round, tried to buy it many times, finally it was gone, a local collector who had the money and small town connections scooped it up...thankfully it was actually going to be restored.

there is a corvette grave yard in my home town, i always just like walking around it before i got my vette even, he had a 74 LS4 in it, a 72 convert, tons of L82's, and alot of chrome bumper cars that i couldent tell what year, but the good thing was that they were all for sale

So sad to see any classic car in that situation. That white first gen is especially sad to see as its much more rare than most although I am not really a fan of the really early Vettes.

ill say this, ide rather see a classic rusting away, then one with some crazy metallic paint job and sporting 26" rims, and the interior with more speakers than a concert. a death of a car like this is atleast honorable in my eyes

Funny story on that Maroon Split Window. That picture was used to post a bogus Craigslist ad a few years back offering the car for sale. It gave a phone number.

The guy who answered sounded VERY PO'd at my call indicating he does not have any Corvette for sale.


somebody must have had a beef with him and genenrated the ad to flood his phone.....

to OP.......I'm crying with you.
