My favorite is the 1969 Sting Ray. I was fortunate enough to be around the ZL1 while Wayne Walker was restoring it in 1980, what an impact that made on my 15 year-old mind!! My other favorite is the 1967 Sting Ray convertible. Wayne had a number of those over the years and my dad had one too, a 427/435 red roadster. Coolest part? This was long before they became too valuable to rip-loose on the street!! I guess I grew-up in a pretty cool neighborhood!!

vette that's the best

my favorite is the "73" hands down. mine was white with a black vinyl t-top that was original to the car with a 350/4speed. the car had the new front end that started in 74 I believe, and the old back end with the chrome bumbers. sadly the car seemed to be jinxed and had been put back together to it's original state twice after two accidents. this is pretty bad considering in the 10 years i had the car i only put 12k miles on it. go figure.

Know where i can find another????? would have loved to have had the car back again, but the guy who bought it also wrecked it and sadly didn't put it back to original state. when the car came up for sale it was such a mess i decided not to buy back the car.

I guess I am biased too but I totally agree with you. The true enthusiast will own either a stingray or a C4.

If i was to pick any corvette, i would havt to pick, the 1967 L88. With around 600 HP straight off the assembly line, and being worth around $700,000 today, that would be my hands down choice for any corvette

What year Corvette Do you like the most and Why?

The 63 Split Window is by far the nicest of all Corvettes, especially if equipped with a 327, 350 HP mouse. Second has to be the 62, again with the 350 HP and a lift off top and Wonderbar radio.

I own an 84 that looks and runs like new and although not in the same class with the above, I like it.

Corvette Z06

I have owned a 77 L-82 vette for 19 years and sold it for a 2002 Z06. The Z06 is the best Corvette ever put into production. Anyone that has drove one will agree with me. Not to get all you other Corvette owners mad, I have to say I rather be driving any year and/or model Vette than any other American built car.

Re: What year Corvette Do you like the most and Why?

Had a C4...lots of power, not great performance or handling. Got a C5...lots of power, great performance and handling.
Want a C6...lots of power and good looks, great performance and handling.
