A Fiberglass Romance: 1981 Chevrolet Corvette C3

I know that everybody loves to hate on the plastic bumper C3 generation Corvette — yeah the chassis is a loose as nun’s dress…and the low compression smog choked V8s are terrible and build quality is on par with the worst best stuff at Harbor Freight…but they have a certain aesthetic charm, and chicks dig ’em. Who doesn’t remember the Corvette Summer and a young Luke Skywalker starring next to the nerdy girl from Ghostbusters? Find this 1981 Chevrolet Corvette offered for $16,000 in Mesa, AZ via craigslist.
