Should I buy it?

I am looking at a 1982 Corvetter for 10,000 with 48,000 original miles... Car has had several owners, but looks to be in great shape. I really want to make a good financial decision, is this auto a money pit? Will it retain its value???

Thanks,
Marilyn

You can find newer vettes for that price. What does the maintenance record look like?

I wouldn't but it unless it's one of those collector vettes. But, honestly the 80 through 90s vettes lacked considerable horsepower because of government regulations. You would be better of looking into 2000 or better
