Time to buy a car, I found a 79 vette in the paper for 5800 obo, I'm gonna try to haggle him down to 4500 (condition is a factor I suppose). He claims its in excellent condition, or so it said in the paper, I haven't called yet, so I wouldn't know if its a stingray (here's hoping it is). Says T-top, red (color condition excellent), power windows, power locks, has a 350 w/ a m12 transmission so that's like a huge plus , also has aluminum rims and says it runs good.
Now the reason I'm posting is this, does anyone on this board have a 79 corvette or run a 350 engine? I wanna know, like gas wise, is it gonna be uber expensive or highly expensive (hey we all know its gonne be expensive either way, lesser of two evils I suppose)? Also, should I go for something else as a first car?
Reason it caught my eye is cuz I've always wanted an old skool stingray corvette, red or blue (if its blue, then w/ white racing stripes ) and I mean the 350 is like icing on the cake.
Just wanted your suggestions, what would you do?
