My car is the green 75 Corvette with the scale model on top. I have had several good cars in my life time but this is my ultimate toy. I bought what I could afford and took about 8 years to get it the way I wanted it. It was originally white (I do not like white cars) so I choose a 75 stock green. The car now is a little better than when it was new. By doing all of the work myself was rewarding and cost saving. Better interior, brakes, suspension, motor, etc. It is not a show car but a driver (only in good weather naturally). Some of the additional benefits over a new car are: 1) better insurance coverage and rate, 2) more comments from others, and 3) as least mine does increase with value each year and not the other way around. Besides it is just more fun to drive!
