Car Show Outtake: A Third-Gen Corvette That’s Not Red

6-28-13 413 (800x533)

Last Sunday I went to a car show on the Hennepin Canal. Most of the cars were the usual “seen-it” Camaros, Tri-Five Chevs and–you guessed it–Corvettes, but I liked this ’80-’82 model. Silver-blue is not often seen on surviving third-gens (I think there was a silver-green too, at about the same time), but it really suits it.

Even better, it had a matching navy-blue leather interior. Stunning! Always good to see a third-gen ‘Vette in clean original condition. These are very underrated today (with the exception of the big-block ’68-’72s), but I bet these late ’70s/early ’80s variants are a lot of fun for the money!
