Default Love the C3's

I still think they are THE best looking Vette EVER. Probably because it's the car being built when I grew up and was in HS.

It's the reason I fell for the C6 (I've had 3 of them)...I think they captured much of the C3 style in the C6. I never liked the C5, too bloated IMO. The C4 was my 1st vette because I wanted a new one at the time. but would not own one today.

I had a 71 LT-1 vert...and I'm on the hunt for another C3. I'd love a BB, but they are a little rich for my taste.

My perfect car = 68-73 convertible with side pipes. In silver or black.

some day, maybe this year. I'm not getting any younger.

Next car I get will be a C3 cuz they are awesome and I would have a blower or something sticking out of the hood so I could barely see to drive!

Kinda like this.


This one is cool but I dont care much for the extra lip on the front.

I guess they put the hook into me too for the same reasons. They where the most awesome thing on the road when I was growing up. The pinnacle of power and elegance; with a dash of arrogance thrown in. Like a Friesian war horse.

Although most people may not know the individual years of the C3, there is no mistaking the profile and presence of a C3. She will instantly turn heads.
A true work of art, the C3

Hey Lars,
Check out my '69 - it's for sale. Not a vert, but the best of both worlds. you probably remember the rear window also comes out.
