Like them or not, you have to admire classic American muscle cars for the looks alone. This particular example, bathed in the rare and striking color code 33/38 – a two-tone dance of Silver Metallic over Dark Blue Metallic – is a testament to the Corvette's enduring allure and general bad-assery.

Nestled beneath its iconic hood lies the heart of the beast: a 5.7-liter (350cui) V8 engine. It's not just about the numbers, though. It's about the symphony it plays, the way it propels this American icon forward, paired to a (very average) automatic.

Step inside, and you're greeted with an interior that's been lovingly preserved. Those bucket seats, emblematic of the 1980s, don't just offer a place to sit; they offer a journey back in time. And in a nod to the exterior, they're color-coordinated, creating a harmonious blend of inside and out. Above you, the Targa roof beckons, promising open-air freedom with just a few simple steps, easily stowing behind the seats for those moments when you want to feel the wind in your hair.

But it's the details that truly set this Corvette apart. White Letter tires, encased in original aluminum rims, hint at its sporting pedigree. And the list of factory-fitted options reads like a wish list for any enthusiast: power steering (not so common back then), brake booster, disc brakes on both ends, electric windows, an adjustable steering wheel, a dual exhaust system that sings the V8's song, climate control for those warmer days, and those unmistakable Targa T-Tops in glass.

In a world awash with modern supercars and technological marvels, this Corvette C3 Targa stands as a reminder of a golden era. Pop up headlights will forever have a special place in history.
