I bought this vette in 2005. I have always wanted one. It was fun working on it, finding different parts needed to improve performance and looks. I wanted it to look different from any other 82. The color looks orange in the daytime and red at nite. 2 good friends, ( Larry & Rodney), helped me to get it where it is today. I really enjoy driving it on cruises and I show it at cars shows. I have received many trophies including Best GM, Ladies Choice, Best 80's, and Best 80's Corvette along with the Top 50's ect. I like going to shows, hanging with the other guy's, seeing there cool cars and getting different ideas from other 82 vettes on how to improve mine. I love driving it.
We adopted Slick about three years ago. The prevous owner had already rebuilt/replaced a lot of the problems so Slick was a driver with a few noises here and there. Promptly rebuilt the rear suspension and replaced the old tires to make a HUGE difference in the ride. On Feb 14th of 2006 a kid threw a left hook turn across my lane leaving Slick with a broken noise and contusions. After a long battle with the insurrance companies, Slick was finally repaired and BACK IN BLACK!
