I was pumped to get it because I had to grease palms to get on the list and then as I recall, I had to pull a few favors for the dealer too. Free tix, etc. But in the end it was anticlimactic. I took a big loss on the resale, but I don't regret it.
That car was a vortex during the years I owned it -- my first wife loved it. She drove it some and had traffic tickets in abundance. Of course, she didn't pay them herself. It was "my fault".
Are you sure it was a 83? Not trying to start any crap with you but they only made 44 Corvettes for that model year. None were available to the public. Most were used for car shows and crash testing. All were destroyed by GM but one which is at the Corvette Museum. Anyway that is what I have been told.
