    Little Red Corvette was released in 1982, so this is exactly the car Prince had in mind – would love to see the lady he had in mind – although… she'd be in her late 50s now – either she took his advice and slowed down, or she's gonna be a bit rough at this point – i'm overthinking this, am i not?

      I like this car,, red with a 4speed; it's $2000 in parts away from being much quicker and man they look cool

    Just how long is that brake linkage?! The master cylinder is dangling off the front of the car like an AAN. I remember those horrible Autotrader days. Had to buy listings printed in 1930's magazine print and try to discern the state of the vehicle by the aforementioned code and a grainy spy photo. Worse yet the local paper with no photo at all.

    If you are a male porn star or a country radio station DJ from the 80s, this would be perfect!

    A friend had a '79 in the family (with an automatic) and we took it out from time to time. Sure, it has some compromises, but the torque was impressive and there's something very cool about those fenders sticking up in one's field of vision. Also, a stoplight drag yielded a dead heat vs. another friend's brand-new (at the time) 1991 Mustang GT five-speed! I seem to recall these lost a bit of power and torque (again) around 1980, but still… Note also there are a few rare CA models with 305s in place of the 350. Those should probably be avoided.
