1980 Chevrolet L-82 Corvette. I am the second owner, I purchased it late July 1982. I have a mileage record book that I've recorded all my fuel purchases in to back up the mileage and purchase date info. It has always been garaged, and pampered save for days that we traveled anywhere.

I've done most of the maintenance myself and have made very few modifications to it. It still has most of its original parts, interior and all. The only things that have been changed are the: mufflers, tires, brake calipers, brake pads, rear leaf spring, water pump and various small normal wear parts. I still have the original water pump and leaf spring and will pass them along to the new owner. Items that were updated over the years, leaf spring was changed to the mono-leaf fiberglass spring, stainless steel brake calipers, braided stainless steel brake lines, semi-metallic brake pads. Oh, and I still have the original AM/FM 8-Track player. The first owner installed two switches on the driver side kick panel, one to turn off the power antenna and the other to turn off the lock-up torque converter. The headlights are Cibie Z-beams (lows) and Halogen (highs). I switched it synthetic (engine only) oil shortly after I purchased it. The mufflers are stainless steel, which I hand polished.

The catalytic converter was removed by the original owner along with the air injector, sadly they were not passed along to me. The paint and the interior are all original. There is some typical checking in the hood and a few thin spots (also typical of the factory applied paint). It runs and drives decently, though the carb ought to be rebuilt - pay my asking price and I will have it done for you.

This car has nearly every option available for 1980, including the Gymkhana option! And don't forget it's the last year with no computer engine management controls! Now to the special points of interest; this car has been signed by Corvette dignitaries: Larry Shinoda, Dave McClellan and Elfi Arkus-Duntov. I met all three of these people while showing the car at the Corvettes at Carlisle events over the years. This Corvette has been to nearly all the Corvettes at Carlisle events since I've owned it, save for the past three years.

The year after getting this Corvette, 1983, I started a Corvette club in my area that we affiliated with the National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC). I did a lot of NCCC Concours Judged shows with the car and it was a pretty consistent winner.
