One Awsome '84 Vette — This is an awsome car to drive. The engine's tourque is amazing. I have a 4+3 manual transmission that works great. I have owned this car for fourteen years and have a little above average maintance on it. This vette handles better than any other car that I have driven. The cross-fire setup has been problem free all of these years.

Pros

Phenomenal, even if not-so-refined, handling.

Cons

At that time in automotive history, it really needed 50 more horses. Now, of course, at a mere 205 HP, it would be deemed underpowered.

Terrifically Precise Steering And Handling. — Actually this C-IV Corvette came out as a 1983 ½ model year -- the first major revision coming out of the seventies era C-III. Its handling was so radically stiff that it would beat a Lamborghini Countach on the track. Try driving it very fast on average road surfaces and your kidneys would be hurting (literally)! It was two-tone: metallic bronze and brown, with standard transmission. Because it came with high and low range differential to meet CAFE regulations (regarding gaz guzzler taxation), it had seven speed -- however, at least two of them were redundant. It was extremely fun to drive because the handling limits were so high that it was beyond the psychological limits of nearly all who drove them!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Cons

My car sat up for a good while. There's a few little things to work out. the panel light's act up and the horn want blow. Also, the speakers are acting up.

Nice Car! — The little things does not bother me, but I think , in the long run, it might be a little to heavy on gas to drive as an every day car, I plan on keeping this car for a few months, just because I enjoy driving it. I might sell it , I'll just decide later.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

1984 Corvette Crossfire Injection — the 1984 corvette, the first of this body style, this is my 3rd corvette, I've had a~1969 stingray rag top, & 1979 L82 corvette, these are also awesome car's. I'm having a great experience with My 84 vette, I've own her for about 7~8 years now, it's an awesome car, she's no 2011, LOL and despite her needing paint, some body work, new interior and minor mechanical maintenance. this car is willing to go anywhere anytime anyplace that has asphalt , she's a pleasure to drive, lots of fun, she turns heads, she's not the jealous kind, she doesn't mind if i have a female friend out for a ride {Wink}. and she is a Babe magnet, LOL she loves the highway, great on gas. ALL -n- ALL it's a Corvette!!!, and if it say's Corvette on her, and it looks like a woman shape as a corvette, LOL and it drives like a corvette, and if it makes you feel good because your driving a corvette! then Guess What!!! It's a Corvette!!! LOL .... I recommend any year corvette they just make good times and new friends. Support your local Corvette Clubs. happy Vette trails.

It Was A Crossfire — the '84 was the first year in bowling green. had the crossfire 350. i'd say it had about 170 hp. that was just not a good year for the vette.
