I am looking at a 1985 Vette. The car belongs to my grand son's auto shop teacher and looks really nice in the picture. Says it has borela exhaust and that is something I am not familiar with.

What are the pros and cons of this model. I would be using it for pleasure driving a d some vacations.

Two things that will factor into my decision is ease or difficulty of entry and exit. Also seat comfort for the bride. She has some back problems a d her comfort is a big concern for me.

Thanks, Pete

Thanks. I guess I'll pass on this one. No fun going by myself.
