I am in love: TWICE!
I need to sell my 73 or 80 and get a C5 since I sold the 99 right after I got it. lol And then all I would need would be something from the C1 generation. However, building the garage and then the house is likely going to require selling most of my collection soon. But I plan to keep the '14 and '64.And your stable of one from every generation gets closer!
I love the simplicity of the '64 just as much as I love the complexity of the '14. Mine is just as you described yours.I had a 64 Roadster. It sure was simple compared to the C7. The "entertainment system" was a mono AM-FM radio. My windows were hand crank. The brakes were all drums (discs arrived on the 65 model). Putting the top up and down was all done manually. The "climate control" was a three speed fan, and you pulled out the knob to choose between heat and defrost. Mine had no Air Conditioning. The idea of an air conditioned roadster seemed silly to me at the time. This car only used electricity for the lighting, heater fan, horn, and ignition. As a result, it only had a 37 amp alternator, which, I seem to recall, had a larger diameter belt pulley because the Vette engine revved higher than a 327 in an Impala.
Selling it to raise money for the down payment on my house is one of my few regrets in life.
Rob; You know for my purposes a new roadster does not need an AC either. I will not be using it day to day nor fall victim to brain killing city driving. My present roadster only gets the AC turned on to keep the system operational for the next owner. When I bought my new 71 LT 1 it did not have air either.When I have the top down on my roadster's (which is the only way I drive) I don't need no stinking AC!Mine had no Air Conditioning. The idea of an air conditioned roadster seemed silly to me at the time.
