Nice car!  I have a neighbor with a dark blue '79.  His is not quite as tricked out as yours, though.  Welcome to the world of sharks!

Thanks for all the congrats and good wishes, folks! Much appreciated! For the record, this is my second Vette. The first was a '92 black rose metallic I bought from its first owner in '99. At the time, I'd been looking for a C3, but was sidetracked by the near-mint '92, with only 10,000 miles on her. I drove it nearly year-round for 9 years, and sold it with 168,000 miles on it. Recently, I had a CD which I'd had for years prior to getting married, and my wife actually encouraged me to cash it out and purchase the C3 I never got around to getting. I promise not to abuse my Blue Shark like I did my C4! Hey, Mark and ebo, what and when is "beach day"? Is it Vettes at Sylvan Beach? Thanks again, everyone, for making the newbie feel SO welcome!

Yes, that truly is a beautiful Vette Rudy.   I love the classic wire wheels and the interior was nicely done.  Not over the top, but unique.   Have fun with it!

I'm glad you are happy with your new ride Rudy. It was a pleasure to meet you and Joe.

Have you addressed any of those couple minor issues yet? Or are you waiting on warmer weather like we are?

Hopefully we get to meet up sometime over the summer. Keep us posted on your vette projects.

Sarge

Rudy,
Welcome to the club and congrats on finding a great ride.
I hope to see it up close soon.
Give a shout if you are ever passing by this way.

Hi David, Even though, currently, unable to enjoy driving the car due to a minor medical issue, I still have to pinch myself everytime I catch a glimpse of her outside the house! Anyway, I hope to get out your way at some point this summer to meet up with Joe (68vet427) in Macedon Center. He was one of the fellas looking over the car with me, the other one being Darryl (Sarge81) out in West Seneca. Will give a holler when plans begin to take shape. Hey, the new face pic is great!

Hey, I forgot to mention I rode in Joe's Motion Clone for two 7-mile drives through Livingston County farmland. She's pretty, loud, and makes a presence before she arrives, what with vibrating all the windows in town!

If you visit Joe on a Wednesday evening, I can meet you at the Log Cabin restaurant for a cruise-in night. When the weather is good, the place is packed.
