Pros

Has that 80's muscle car feel and sound, step on the gas and it growls and goes!

Cons

Not as high tech as newer Vettes

A Gem Of A Car — I like the fact that it is a convertible and has a beautiful bright red finish. The engine compartment still looks new. Has a nice sound to the exhaust system. Has many upgrades and was not driven in rain or snow, stored in a semi-heated garage winters.

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

Electronic dash cluster .

99 Out Of 100 For Likability . — The electronic dash cluster is a little on the annoying side . My gas gauge does only works when it feels like it, and my LCD's are sunburnt , but they cost a ton to repair .

Pros

Car handles well and is easy to park. Good fit for a short person, I'm only 5'2" and have no problems seeing out of it.  Still looks good after all these years.

Cons

Gas mileage not that great. There's a lot of engine noise into passenger compartment. It's not that easy to get in and out of.  Ride is typical of a Corvette.

Classic C4 — Absolutely loved this car when I was young, flexible and without family responsibilites. It's not the cars fault, it's age catching up with me. This car still performs like it did when it was new. Step on the gas and you're going fast. It's always handled well and is definitely fun to drive with the top off. Ride is typical of a Corvette. It's pretty much original and has been garaged for most of it's life, however, it's been a little neglected for the past 3 years. Hasn't been driven much and has been regelated to being parked on the driveway. It's time for Buddy M. to find a new home unfortunately.

I Wouldnt Want Anything Else — its so good to be seated at the rear of the car when going sideways. its a head turner when cruising the coast on a hot summers day. i love it. with the shift kit its sweet when you puch it and it cherps every gear change.
