We all buy classic cars for a number of reasons, and most all of them, of course, have the cool factor that is generally at the top of the list of reasons. That said, you want to be smart when considering any classic car purchase. Buy something you like, something that drives nicely, looks great, and holds, if not increases it's value as time progresses. The fact is, you just can't go wrong in any direction with a Mid-year Corvette, and in consideration of a 1963 Split window, well..That's just about as good as it gets.
