Just Plain Fun--nothin Like The Top Down And Wind Rushin Over My Bald Head — this is my 8th Corvette, the formers being C2's and C3's. Although I have loved them all, this C4 is a dream to drive and just all around good fun. Not that getting 24-25 miles per gallon around the town and gets it on like a scalded cat is a bad thing, mind you. My first convertible, too. Gotta love it--I may never put the top up--even if it rains (hahahahahah)!!

An Awsome Piece Of Kit — for 22 years old it is in exelent condition only doing 37k. the noise is amazing and the feeling of getting chucked back in ur seat is great but the brakes do let it down. other than that i think it is a terrific car

Driver communication

Great 80's Corvette — The car holds up surprisingly well for an 80's corvette. Very few parts ever needed replacement. Drives incredibly well, but there isn't much communication with the driver. The throttle is sensitive and the steering feels a little dead, but still easy to put exactly where you want it. Black is a difficult color to mantain, but looks better than any other color on this car.

Our Roze — Likes = Very fun with all the low end torque. Dislikes = Some parts are hard to locate, but overall still plenty to get. It is a money pit. But who cares. In a few years, it will be basically rebult. Very fun.

Holy Crap — This corvette is simply amazing! It isn't the most pretty (for right now), but what matters is under the hood. The best time to drive this beauty is at night with the hard top off... It puts you in a setting so indescribable. Another thing that is different is how low it rides to the ground. One negative it has a rough ride due to the stiff suspension. Always have to be careful when pulling into a driveway.
