Craigslist for a 17 y.o Vette? That's a recipe for disaster. Keep what U have until you find something better for you.

well the cars not even in my name,it is my car,i bought it,but we still put it under my moms name just so insurance would b cheaper,and it still is 800 dollers,and my mom has a perfect record other than 1 tiny fender bender
1 Tiny fender bender is all it takes to boost insurance costs. Im 27 with no accidents, and my 6 month cost is less then 600.

First off...

That generation of Vette is the ugliest and lamest one ever produced, period..

Second...

Whatever you're paying for insurance, double or triple it.. No matter how clean anyone's record is.

Third...

Think what you're doing through.. Why the hell would you even think about swapping out the stock LT1 and 6 speed? That would be retarded and a waste of $$$ unless you'd be looking to make over 500whp.

Fourth...

Get a Fiero. It can outhandle that generation of Vette easily, insurance is cheaper than the Cobalt.. The stock engine and exhaust sound badass as hell. Its fun to work on and drive, has all the comforts of a 2010 car minus the fancy shit, and its very comfortable.. WAY better than that gen Vette. Not to mention swapping the engine is a piece of cake and for 3k, you can be running 11s on the track with ease plus the cost of the car.

Think about it, I made the choice and couldn't be happier.. Not to mention this car turns heads like no Vette of that year ever would :noworry:

Plus, they burst into flames at random moments.. It doesn't get anymore badass than that.

yeah, that's what I look for in a car... spontaneous combustion lol... no offense but to make a fiero look good takes some work... not like they are only a few years old... i'm all for GO... but if your car has cancer or is cow spotted with primer it's still lame... although that vette is too... lol... go to a police auction and look for a newish z06 or somethin'... bullet holes are easy to patch...
