Vette(s): 1978 25 anniversary blue on blue with T-tops.
Kinda dumb question but why so many '67's? I would think that a good condition 61 or an origional 53 would be in the tops more. Am I wrong? What was so special that makes the 67 so prized on that list.

For my money, which isn't much, the '67 is argueably the cleanest of all the Corvette designs. Most of the chrome trim has been removed rendering the design simple and elegant. A '62 follows the same design logic, again, in my humble opinion. My all-time favorite is a '57 with the dual four barrel set-up.
There is no substitute for low end torque!
Vette(s): 1981 - 59 Beige over Cinnebar leather. Edlebrock top end, 2200 stall w/shift kit, 3:55s, Mufflex maniback exhaust, nice stereo, 16 in AREs w/BFGs
The 67 is concidered the best year of the best series. These cars took off and alot of folks sold in the pricing vacuum. My 1st long term exposure to a Vette was in a 67. It honestly maybe the best car I have ever driven.

All I see on that list is a bunch of trailer queens that will never be driven like we drive our's, It's a shame. Mine may not be a high dollar car but to me it is and more people see mine than those that are kept locked up. To me our's are worth more than any of them, most of us on here built our own car.

These are not representations of what our vehicles are worth. These are collctables purchased by wealthy men who will pay just about any amount to get the bragging rights. Notice the sales dates. I`ve been watching the autions lately and the prices are not as high.
As for the `67 big block.... it is the most refined and most powerful car of it`s era. Therefore desireable. For me .. that was the car that got me started on this addiction.
