Good question...

This is my first vette and I still get excited every time I pull it out of the garage. I've put a lot of work into getting this the way I want it and don't ever see myself selling it. I'm 100% happy with what I have.

With that being said, that is a really tough question due to there are so many nice vettes out there and I sure a lot easier to answer from someone who knows all about every year vette. I would like to have a 1967 in my garage next to my 2002.

1957, 283 cubic inch, fuel injection, 4 speed, or 1967, 427 cubic inch, or, Jeeze, Don this is tough. I 'll go with the first choice.

That is a tough question Don, I always wanted a Red 63 coupe, but I think I would have to go with a 67 big block. That stinger hood is too cool.

63

Wife says split window, and since she let me buy the C6 I have to go with that - I can't decide otherwise anyway.

1967 L88- If cost was no object (hey they made 20 of them)-that is the one !! One of the badest, best looking vettes ever produced. Second choice-2007 Z06.

Without a doubt, the 67 L-88 is the most awesome Corvette ever built.
A new Silver Z-06 would be next in line. That Vette looks like 200 mph sittin still.
Back in the 70s i had the opportunity to drive a 69 Motion coupe. OMG. That was a totally KICK A-s Vette. The Hone overdrive setup was pretty cool too.

Yo Don,

a 67 L88 is still a 67.

I just want mine as a big bad BIG BLOCK !!

Second choice? What second choice? You get one choice? Who do you think are George, Brad Pitt? 'I'll take Jennifer but my second choice is Angelina'.

I remember my first and only ride in an L88. It was a 68 and the ride happened at the Cavalcade at the old air base. It was about 27 years ago. I was there and I saw a guy in a nasty sounding 68 pulling on to one of the access roads to the runway. I walked up and asked him if his car was a real L88. He said jump in and we'll find out. It was a short ride (about 11 seconds). The acceleration was amazing. Nothing like the torque of a high compression big block. When the ride was over the driver introduced himself. It was Chip Miller.

I will never foreget that ride.

Todd,

427 was 66-69 then 454 70-74. Tri-power went out with the 427. One big Holley worked just fine and was much easier to tune.
