Default New owner C3 1981

Hello guys, i am from Romania and i just have a week with my NEW CAR: Corvette C3. I'm pleased to find this active Vette Forum.
My Vette: C3 1981, Engine: 5.7L, 190hp, 64000miles.
I Spent 12.000euro on it. Let me know if is to much money or i just make good deal.
- i searched a little on google and youtube for few instruction before buy the car.
- The car is in good shape, no hidden rust, the engine sounds very good, I tested the car 300 miles when i buy it and everything was ok. Everything is functional, the electronic windows, mirrors and driver's "chair"
- I want to replace the sparks, some bushes, and other little/cheap things to start the care of my new baby.
- Notice that i buy the car from Europe, that means is with 2000 more expensive because the shipment from US. You think that i spent 10.000 euro's (12.000 dolar) on it.
- Apologise my english, i will put more photos tomorrow, with engine and others.
- Please let me know your opinion...

Car looks like it's in great condition. If you're happy with it, that's really all that matters !

I'm thinking you're in Arad Romania. I'm sure there are very few C3 corvettes running around out there. Between that red and it being a C3 corvette it will really stand out !
