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!

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.

Fun Car To Have, Pay Someone Else To Fix It Though. — This car is a great car to drive. It turns alot of heads especially when you have one when youre 16-19 years old. It handles great, but can feel a little loose in rear end because it is so light. As a stock car and before someone really beats on it the build quality of these cars is great, just don't get in an accident, they're fiberglass. They are not the fastest corvettes made because of the gas crunch of the time and thanks to EPA. They are one of the first good handling corvettes made. Be carefull in buying them though, alot of people like to cover up accidents on these cars, and it can be difficult to find them in good shape. As I was repainting mine, I had to sand through 13 layers of paint, 3 of which were top coats, so this is the 4th time this car has been painted. Cost of ownership?????? Comon, it's a corvette, everything for this car is double what it is for any other car.... it does get surprisingly good gas mileage though, when youre being nice to it. Oh and the manual tranny in these made a huge difference, Ive driven both and my automatic is sooo slow compared to the manual. Overall this is a very fun car to drive, a bit bumpy as you can expect from an 85 street car, but more cost effective for low budget people, and also still a head turner.

Not For Everyone, But Way Fun For The Right Person. — The engine is a torque monster, not too much horsepower. The independent rear suspension leaves a little to be desired on launch. Gas mileage is good, but at 25 years old, the car is a little tired. Suspension is harsh, but it holds well.

Looks, power and fun to drive

Cons

Leaks fluids, rough ride.

My Little Red Corvette — I like the looks. It is beautiful and feel it is one of the best looking cars on the road. It is also nice and fast. Unfortunatly when you store them they tend to leak fluids. Overall it is a fun car to drive with the top off on a nice sunny day.
