Pros

Probably one of the fastest cars you can get for the price, Good fuel efficiency for 22 year old sports car, alot of different performance parts to pick and choose from.

Cons

Front spoiler is too low, back tail lights are a bitch to replace.

Great Overall Sports Car — Awesome car. Looks sleek and sounds great with any aftermarket exhaust system. Just as fast as most modern sports cars that cost about 5 times the price.

Cleaned Up And Re-built This Only To Race It Once — My buddy bought this car for a steal. It looked like it had not ever been taken car of. So we broke it down and did all the basics and replaced the shocks, etc.

I Miss My Vette. — Loved this car. Wish I never sold it, but you can only have so many cars in your driveway.

Pros

The low-end torque combined with the 4+3 manual transmission make this a torque-monster off the line and a blast to drive.

Cons

You need to prop up the rear window with an aftermarket mod in order to keep wind from catching in the car and slowing it down when the roof's off and the windows are down. There is a distinct lack of high RPM power from the engine, but this is common with the TPI L98 block.

1986 Chevrolet Corvette Two-tone — My first Corvette, and still in the family. Since this photo was taken my sister's taken ownership of it as a college ride, and the entire exterior and my Z06 rims have all been painted black. It truly looks wicked.

Rides Like A Champ! — This is a sweet ride. Handles extremely well. It can move pretty quick and turn heads just as fast.

Awesome — This Vette runs very strong and still looks great among many of today's newer sport cars. This one is for the most part, a stock vehicle; meaning no real engine modifications. Only an air-intake vortex power spacer for a few more ponies and efficiency, as well as tuned with performance products. The original front bumper was professionally OEM upgraded to accommodate newer matching Greenwood fascia kit, which turned out to be a huge improvement. Overall, these cars are known as a 'rolling power-house' for their power-to-weight ratio straight from the factory.
