This is my first vette. Waited 41 years to be able to do it right. She is a peach and took 2 years of serious looking, calls and disapointment to find her but all worth it. She is dark blue metalic w/ camel leather in real good shape. I need tons of info! looking forward to talking to like minded vetters.

Welcome Shelly! Excellent choice of color. :upthumbs Is your '81 a St. Louis car or Bowling Green? Don't forget to wave! :w

Hello and welcome to the Corvette Action Center.....Congrats on the Vette. Gotta love those C-3's. I had a real nice C-4 but I always wanted a nice C-3. I looked and looked for a long time and then I found one. I sold the C-4 and bought the C-3. Its the style of the C-3 that has had my eye since I was a kid.....Enjoy the site and the Vette. They are real head turners also.:upthumbs

Nice car! My brother had a black 79 with all the aero. I took my first ride in a 61 when i was 7. Thats all it took. When the Pace Car came out(78). I was hooked!(also had my birthday on the side of it!)Couldn't find a Pace Car that was in good enough shape for me to aford. So I decided on an 81, I'm from St. Louis and wanted a St. Louis car for my first. Made up my mind on the color combo but still took 2 years to find it(2 loooong years!). To my suprise I found her in St. Louis at a car museum and after 2 weeks of dealing, brought her home. Sorry to ramble but I'm sure a true vetter understands! When you get time tell me your history,it's great to hear the tales!
