About “Buddluv's Vette”

I've always wanted a car like this corvette. it needs some work, the nose was tapped,(to put it lightly) and the right front part of the fender is cracked . The motor is the L82 350, and has a rebuilt automatic 350 Turbo tranny,The interior is pretty clean,but of course i'll do it over my way which is why I wanted a Corvette that wasn't a collectors item. Right now it has Flowmasters on it and dang.....it's too loud so back to stock mufflers (I would like to hear my stereo while i'm cruising!), I'm going to stick with the color that it is right now, that way if I plan on making any changes It will happen during the winter months, cause summer goes by like (snap)! GITTERDUNN!
