Great Driver — Not for show. Needs to be driven to really enjoy it. With the top off it is very enjoyable to travel around in. It was an everyday driver for me until I retired. Now it is an occasional ride on nice days

Pros

Price and aftermarket support for parts

Cons

Flexible chassis and quality of interior materials.

C4 Corvette — Good performer of its time and classic body style that still looks decent. Great availability of aftermarket parts as it still has gen 1 small block. Flexible chassis though so it will need some reinforcements if track duty is your style. Recommended for a d-i-y guy that is looking for a cheap track toy.

This Is My First Car! — I absolutely adore my baby! (which I have affectionately dubbed 'Juandisimo') It drives and handles like I always thought a car was supposed to. I LOVE this car!

Its An Incredible Car.... — I have owned mine for 2 years and wouldn't trade it for any other as it runs and drives like a dream. The performance is awesome. The 5.7 is strong and never has failed me.

Top American Sports Car In 1985 — i bought this 1985 corvette with 3200 original miles on it,drove it home and it has resided in mygarage ever since.i have driven it a total of 700 hundred miles,this car is not a driver or weekend car.it is driven once or twice a year and not very far.i would like to really drive it more and get to know it better but i think it should be kept as an investment car and for someone else down the road to do the same.

Fun to drive, very fast, and just a great overall car

Cons

Rattles in dash, manual transmission is a bit hard to shift at times, glass roof ca be a pain, door windows with sharp edges, and difficult to get into

I Just Love It! — The performance is more than what you would expect from a sports car. The handling could be a bit better, but it is about what is expected in a car like this. The build quality is pretty good, I have had a couple rattles repaired, and I decided to get it changed over to automatic transmission because I was sick of shifting the manual. Not that I had any problems with it. The appearance is breathtaking! I love the lines to it, and I love how I can just take the top off and go. Interior fit and finish could be better, the materials can feel a bit cheap, but I am not complaining. It defineley takes some practise to get into it without hurting yourself (for guys especially! I hink you all know where I'm going) and you really have to watch the sharp corner of the window glass in the door when it is up. I myself have come pretty close to getting hooked on it. Gas mileage is alright in this car, it is very light in weight so the gas is about the same as what you would pay in a smaller 4 cylider SUV or wagon. And of course it is fun to drive! I will take this over any newer high performance car any day!
