I have an old C5 1998 model . It has over 133000 miles on it always find something to be done to it. It is my retirement project . Turn out better than I through, but it cost a lot more than I through it would. All I do with it now is show it at local car shows .So you never get rid of a corvette .My C5 is retired with me and it's an good retirement for an old vette.
