Most and Least Desirable Vette?

Excluding the Z06 and rarities such as the ZL-1 and L88's........What year and style Corvette's would be the most and least desirable for you?

For me the most.....1963 FI Coupe....and the least.....1984

BTW....I know there were better and worse Vettes than my choices, but to me there is something magical about the '63 Coupe and the '84.....

I haven't owned enough Vettes over the years to comment other than I loved my '69 BB but it was a dangerous ride compared to the Z06. Corvettes are like beautiful women....ya gotta love them all!

If you want to exclude the ZL-1's and L88's, I'd have to go with anything else made between '63 and '67 as the most desirable.

Least desirable.. That's easy. The '82 C3 with the 305 ci V8 with about 180 hp at the crank.

Most desirable = 70 LT1

Least desirable = Any 73 through 82

I'm with Bill on this one. I had zero interest in the 73 through 84 vettes. Maybe because they are older now, while I still would never want to own one I can say they have a certain appeal. The difference being that some women are just prettier than others....:P

I have a favorite of - I think it's a '66, it had the six taillights. I may have the wrong year though;
and have to go along with that high performer of '82 as the least.

The Most would be a 40th Anniversary ZR1, Gee I already have one of those

The least would be the 1958 with all the Jukebox Chrome Trim

Someone has to put in a good word for the 73 to 82 performance dogs. They were dogs, and handled poor, but I personally like the body style. But if I were to buy another vette I would rather have a 69 big block, or 70's LT1, 65 - 67 era convert. They should hold their values better.
Least desirable, maybe my 84, rough riding rattle trap.
My problem is I like all Vettes...

Least favorite would be 74. First one that I saw was a chocolate brown color with that turned down tail and no chrome. The front & rear extensions didn't even match the body color and this was new on the dealers lot.

63 split window has always been my favorite. 69 is also a great looking car in blue.
