well, a black 79 L82 with red interior sounds familiar! 4 speed or auto? Either way, a damn nice looking car!

Very nice car! Welcome back! I love the black/red combo, I guess that's why my Vert is a back/red car.

Thanks, now all I have to do is get it through emissions here in Utah like that. Fortunately, they only require factory pollution control equipment to be on the car from 1984 and up. Earlier than that only requires a sniff test, fingers crossed.

That's a beautiful car. So clean, Alan71 would be impressed. Black 79s are possibly the best looking of all Vettes, and red interiors are clearly the coolest.

Now go put some miles on it! It's been waiting 40 years to be driven.

True enough, poor thing spent the last 21 years in storage before it was brought out and went through bumper to bumper.
