About “? Lucky ?”

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.

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'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!
