Comments from previous customers:

I bought my 1969 Corvette from Hobby Car Corvettes four years ago and it’s a solid car and I drive it all the time. I enjoyed working with RJ and his team there. They are honest and straightforward. I would purchase from them again.

1969 Silver Corvette

Enjoyed a great ride into DC and then home. Starting our list of things to do but wanted to thank you

1976 Silver Corvette, Virgina

Awesome!! RJ, I want to thank you for making this all to easy to deal with you and this purchase. If I’m ever in the area, I will stop in. If you find yourself all the way out here dinner is on me!

1976 Tan Corvette, Washington State

Hi RJ,
a while back I purchased a 1977 light blue C3 from you. I am very happy with the car and we made many small improvements. One thing I like to do is to mildly modify the engine to make it a little bit more responsive. I consulted many web-sites and talked to different people. As the engine seems to be matching numbers and I do not want to spend a fortune on a complete rebuild, my thought was to replace the camshaft and the manifold and leave the rest untouched (Rochester Qjet, cylinder headed, etc).

1977 Blue Corvette

Morning y’all!

I wanted to let you know the car had been delivered and everything went well. Luke is in love with it and it is exactly what he wanted plus more!

Thank you all for making this such a quick and easy transaction! I will definitely recommend y’all for anyone looking!

Thanks again!!!


1980 Red Corvette, New Orleans

Sorry to contact you so late but I just wanted you to know that the car got here safe and sound last evening around seven. We unloaded in the pouring rain but everything was fine.
Just wanted to tell you that I’m very pleased with the car today. I took it for a ride today even though I don’t have plates on it yet and everything ran great. I panicked slightly when I saw that the wheels had wheel locks on them but I found the master in the glove compartment.
Thanks again for all your help and for having such a great car for me to buy. I’ll be sure to sing your praises to my friends.

RJ, my Vette passed inspection here in RI. The young kid at the garage was salivating all over. The car is gorgeous. Glad I ended up with this color and model.

A couple of guys who know some stuff thought it was a good deal. Thanks to you and your dad. This is a keeper. Suspect I may upgrade in the future. I will be back!

The vette arrived today without any hiccups. And sure looks to me like you installed the seat covers, door panels, and a portion of the carpet. I really appreciate that!!!!
I’m going to have taking care of this classic hot rod. I’ll save the rest of the carpet and detailing for the winter months.
Thanks again RJ!!  Ken


1971 Blue Corvette, NY

RJ is awesome! We live in O’Fallon, IL. and did something we swore we would never do…buy a car sight unseen! After doing our “homework” and talking to RJ numerous evenings on the phone, we took the leap and bought our gorgeous yellow ‘79 survivor, without leaving the comfort of our living room. RJ was so, so patient, answering our many questions and sending us lots of pictures. He made the whole process very stress-free. When our Vette arrived at our front door we were ecstatic! The car is exactly as RJ had described and as we expected it to be. If you’re in the market for a C3, do yourself a favor and check out his inventory. When you find “the car”, relax and know that RJ is the real deal…honest, professional, and he know his Corvettes!

C3 Experts – I bought a 1978 Vette from RJ and Bob in April 2016, RJ did a great job explaining the vehicle, and shared his vast knowledge of Corvettes.Helpfully advising many things to me during the sale and post-sale about Corvettes.He continued to respond by email to any question I had, always offering helpful suggestions and solutions. This location is the place to buy C3 Corvettes on the East Coast, all are fairly priced and mechanically sound. When I am ready for my next corvette, Hobby Car Corvettes will be my first stop. –

RJ and Bob, I would really like to thank both of you for all the help in purchasing and shipping the Corvette. Bob, you should be very proud of your son, as he is a pleasure to deal with. RJ you have taken all the stress out of purchasing and shipping the Corvette. I will let all of my friends know about your operation. Again, thank you both.

Hi RJ, Finally have the Vette home, arrived 6AM, woke the neighbors up! Here it is sat on my drive with the kids crawling around inside it. Drove to work in it today and wow, awesome. Its just hilarious how out of place it looks in the car park amongst all the Euro boxes, modern German and British cars. We are setting off to the Le Mans 4 hour race in June so should have some good pics for you, try and take some pics with it parked outside a castle or something old feel free to use on your blog or website if that helps. Thanks once again I am over the moon with the vehicle and the support you have provided, would have no hesitancy in recommending you guys to anyone looking to buy a Corvette worldwide. Cheers, Rich from the UK.

Great healthy day


1979 Silver L82 Kuwait

Made it home. No issues. That rain sucked but didn't see any leaks. Thanks again!!

1979 388 White, PA

Hi RJ.

Just a brief note to say I finally got the car released from Customs on Thursday and got to at least sit in it!

I’m REALLY happy with it. Thanks a lot for the opportunity, it’s exactly what I wanted.  

As you can imagine, making a significant purchase like this from photos on the internet comes with some trepidation.

However, the condition is as good as I could have possibly hoped for so I’m very pleased that I chose you to buy from.

Hope to drop in and see you one day to say thank you personally.

Hello Mr Sottile,

I hope you are well.
It’s just to let you know that the car has arrived today with me and it looks and sounds great!!
No damage done during the trip so all is good.
Can I just say a massive thank you for all your help over the last few months.
I hope I didn’t hound you too much, but as I had never done this before, I hope you understood my concerns.
You were so helpful and answered all my questions, so once again many thanks.
I would like to hope I may be back for maybe a 70’s model at some point, I like those too!

In the meantime, I will tinker around with my new ‘baby’ and look forward to the summer months ahead where I can show her off!

Kind regards

Thanks RJ. Love the car and It was really nice meeting you and your family. Definitely worth the trip!


1981 White Oh


this is literally the first moment ive had to sit and compose and e-mail since I got home (I had some previous engagements this afternoon and evening and buying a car in martinsburg PA was infringing on those plans bigtime). but yes, I, and much more importantly, the corvette made it back to Annapolis just fine. looking forward to “playing” with it a little tomorrow. thanks for the pleasant buying experience and please pass those sentiments along to Bob and Sharlene as well.

RJ, Have not spoken to you since taking delivery of my car. Just wanted to let you know that I am happy with the car. I was uncomfortable doinga deal online but, it turned out fine. It is pretty much what I expected. Your description was acurate, a solid 35 year old car. This is not a flip for me. I will make improvements over the next several years, and I am sure I will enjoy it for years to come. Thanks again. Sal

1968 White, Florida

Hi Rj,

I purchased a 77 Corvette, L48, white / red interior, 4 speed from you back in September. Figured I’d drop you a line and give you an update.

I can’t remember if I told you this at the time, but I bought this car to give to my wife for our 10 year wedding anniversary. Our anniversary wasn’t until September 26th, so I had to hide it from my wife in my friends garage.

On the night of the 26th, while my wife and I were out to dinner, my Brother in law and my friend brought the corvette from my friends garage over to my house. When we got home from dinner my wife lost her mind and couldn’t believe that it was hers, saying at one point “ok, we have to give this back at some point, right?”. I assured her it was hers to keep, and after about 5 minutes of disbelief, she took the keys and went out for a solo voyage. When she made her way back in the driveway, it was tears, ear to ear grin, she raved about how it ran, in total disbelief that I gave her the Corvette she always dreamed about.

Because of the limited time I had before the our anniversary, I didn’t really have a chance to really go through the car, but since then I have. I pulled a full vacuum on the AC system for a good 4 hours, then let it sit under vacuum for another 4 hours to discover there were no leaks. Two and a half cans of R134 later the AC is ice cold, and has stayed that way since. The car starts every single time, we’ve put almost 200 trouble free and fun filled miles on it already. She’s taken it to work twice, and always seems a little happier when she comes home from work on those days. It runs great and I couldn’t be happier. It feels safe and sturdy, and I’m confident that it won’t leave her stranded.

As far as the exterior goes, I clay bar’d the entire car, then worked in an extra heavy coat of Meguar’s number 7 in to the paint and let it sit over night. If you have a faded single stage paint car come in, I highly recommend this, as mine came up like glass. I’ve enclosed a pic. I’m amazed at how well this works. There’s tons of info out there on how to resurrect faded single stage paint, and it really worked wonders on the Corvette.

I do have a question. Do you have any info on the previous owner / owners? This car is amazingly clean. I had to pull the passenger side dashboard out to trouble shoot the volt gauge (it stopped working) and was shocked to discover there was absolutely no rust anywhere in the birdcage / bottom windshield channel. I’m just curious about its history and life before I bought it.

It was great to meet you. I’m glad I had the chance to come out and check out your inventory. It was amazing to see all those C3’s in one place. I couldn’t be happier with the condition, performance, and believe it or not, reliability of this Corvette.

Bought my first Corvette from RJ and crew last year. The price for my ’71 roadster was fair/reasonable and came in the condition that was described by RJ. Being this Vette was my first classic car I kept bombarding RJ with stupid questions daily for a week or so…he was very professional and helpful. Will recommend to others.

Hi RJ, finally I´m a proud owner of a gorgeous 1968 vette! The car arrived already 6 weeks ago but had been at the repair shop until thursday. We had to deal with some issues concerning the head and tail lamps due to German regulations. Weather this weekend was great, so I took the car on a ride. What should I say – it was wonderful. The Vette is a real beauty and defintely a head-turner… I´m very happy and wanted to thank you for all your efforts! I attached a picture for your facebook page – I hope you notice that I´m wearing the proper flag on my shirt ????Greetings from Germany, Ludwig

I bought my yellow 79 L82 manual Corvette from Hobby Car Corvettes.
I bought it “sight unseen” which most people advise not to do. I bought it purely on the photos and the video. I was worried but now that I have received my car, I am very pleased with it. It seems to be in very good condition and I have checked the usual rust trouble spots. The more I look at it, the happier I am. I never spoke to RJ in person or even on the phone but I would like to thank him for selling me my dream car.


UK, 1979 Yellow

Hi RJ, just wanted to thank you and tell you the car has been great. It’s really fun car to drive.

And even more happy new Corvette owners:

1979 Red corvette RJ I drove 165 miles to get home and the car ran perfectly.  It is a real blast to drive.  I was a little tentative at first because of the rain but by the time I got onto US 30, I was really comfortable with the handling.  The grandsons think it is AWESOME.  I think they would rather go for a ride than go trick-or-treating. Thanks for your help. Bob in Maryland
