What is better an old corvette or a new corvette?

That's just a matter of opinion. The cars today are faster, get better fuel mileage, are much lighter, have much less nasty emissions than the old dogs but The attraction of older cars is that it takes us back to when we were kids, gas was a quarter, OPEC wasn't an acronym, you took your first gf out to watch the submarine races at the lake, enjoyed the drive in (movies & food) The 8 miles per gallon didn't matter, if you had anything less than 350 cu. in. engine it was your grandmothers car. The cooler the car, the cooler you were. The thing that you COULD do with those cars that you can't do now? You could actually work on the motor, computers were in movies. You could get into the engine compartment & it made sense. I love my 67 vette convertible-it's just bad a**

Old because all the new one brake down easy and the new ones are not made of real metal.........

The classics are much more stylish. The new ones are much better performing. I like the big round fenders and the roar of a four barrel carb as it opens.

A new corvette is probably a better choice because of reduced maintenance, warranty coverage and it can have improved features. However, an old corvette has a few advantages also like for instance when it comes to the cost.

One without a computer in it. 1982 and older are considered classics now.
