In a way I am almost happy that I'm not getting it. I almost feel like a child molester giving a kid a piece of candy and walking away...I'd be too tempted to cut this thing up and make a race car out of it. It deserves a sympathetic restoration, I think.

Looks like I just sold it.

So much for my first Corvette and my first convertible.

Sorry to see it go...thought of you this last weekend...

Went racing with the Dayton (Troy) Corvette Club at Kil Kare raceway. Was a 70 Corvette that had been a race car since 1970, very fast but beat to death....your corvette pretty much looked like a Pebble Beach candidate compared to this car.

However, it had a very healthy 454 under the hood...and the guy has a life time supply of 454 motors. Seems that a local school district was selling off a bunch of school buses, all of which were older GMC school buses with 454 power....he put in a cheap sealed bid for the lot and won all of them...sold off the bodies and such for scrap, turned a profit, kept the motors and now he has a pole barn pretty much full of them.

...and I hope it is going to a good home!

Having a barn full of 454s is never a bad thing.

I think the Vette is going to a good home - looks like a restoration will get underway pretty fast.

It was supposed to happen today, but the buyer's tow vehicle is down with a bad PS pump - he's waiting for the part.

It is a bitter sweet feeling. Sad to see a fellow Corvette driver lose one, but yet I am glad you got it sold so easily and fast.

There shall be another one in your life again.

You might consider an lt1 mC4, or an lt4 c4...I am looking at C4's myself, although I am not sure that's the direction that I'm going to go.
