Our midyear is a '64 coupe with a 327 and 54,000 original miles. It was originally a Saddle Tan car, but a restoration and color change were done in the early 1990s. The car is very reliable, and I drive it quite frequently because it's so much fun.

The '84 Vette is an over-the-hill car that's been raced, survived a tornado, and even used as a delivery truck by a local mechanic. It's a real driver but still a lot of fun, and it always turns heads with its appearance. The paintjob is a Maaco special, but the car looks great as a driver. The stripes were an eBay purchase to provide a unique look.

Mechanically, this Vette is solid. Even with almost 180,000 miles on the odometer, it still runs straight down the highway, sounds good, and has plenty of zip with the Crossfire Injection 350, which was rebuilt about five years ago.
