My first vette was a 1973 L82 which I sold a while ago and missed ever since.  After a number of C4/C5/C6's, I recently got the bug again for a 1973 and bought this a month ago:

454 coupe. 55K original miles. 90% original paint, original interior, original engine compartment, matching #'s, all original paperwork.  Loaded: PW, PS, PB, AC, Turbo Hydra-Matic, AM/FM Stereo, Tilt/Tele, Rear Defogger, Map Lamp.  Dark Blue Metallic (one year only color) with Black Custom interior.  MSRP $7335.50.  I'm carefully restoring the few items the car needs (correct dated coded master cylinder, belts, hoses, etc.).
