My first Corvette.  It only took me 30 years after wanting the one at Quirk Chevy when I bought my '79 Camaro.  At 19 I just couldn't afford the Corvette then.  I finally got my '79 Vette.  I purchased the car in April 2008 from what I believe was the forth owner.  It was sold through RC Chevrolet in Hillside, NJ.  It is a 1979 L82 with matching numbers and just over 65,000 miles on it.  It is now a daily driver, weather permitting.  It spent the first two months of my ownership at John's Corvette in Laconia, NH just making it road worthy.  I rescued it from three years of hibernation and everything was leaking, rubber was rotted, timing was way off, and the list goes on.  It is still the original Light Beige exterior and Oyster interior.  Emissions stuff has been stripped off by a previous owner.  Exhaust is 1974 dual.  Options on the car include AC, PB, PS, Tilt & Telescope Wheel, Leather Seats, Gymkhana Suspension, Sport Mirrors, Rear Defrost, 3 speed AT, L82, and Cruise.  Never tried the AC or Cruise control but everything else works.
