A Dream Come True! — My 50th birthday brought a new mistress into my life - a beautiful 1989 Red Corvette. I'd been looking for a while and most of this era are totally trashed - inside and out. On a drive-by, spotted her in a small used car lot. Ran state title on her and found one owner for 16 years and two years with one owner. Definitely garage-kept and maintained well. Dealer was motivated and got her for $7000! Needs rubber weatherstrip work, new stereo system, tires sometime this summer, but interior is immaculate and exterior very clean. Exterior molding is fading but that can be corrected. Mechanically checked out in great shape - mechanic was pushing me to sell and I only had her for two days! Her first drive was in the Smoky Mountains along the Little Pigeon River. Never been in a car ever that held flat in a 30 mph turn at 50. Got to watch for cops!

Owner for 0 years, 1 months

Miles Driven per Year:5,000

Great Car To Drive — I always wanted a vet, but until recently I had no money for a sports car of any kind. I love my vet, now I'm experiencing what previously I only could admire from afar. Power, style, handling are all excellent.

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

I Love It — I love the way it sounds, how it takes off and how if you go to 100 mph you dont even fill it. The only bad thing about my car is if your tall its hard to get out of.

Red Rocket — After wanting a vette for years, I finally got one at age 41. Loving every minute with it! I'm just sorry I didn't get one years ago. The ride and handling are world class, and even though newer ones are more powerful, it still has a lot of get up and go.

I Plan To Move And No Longer Have A Garage. — The 1989 Corvette touted a digital dashboard that still attracts quite a bit of interest. The deeply padded seats borrow from the Recaro look. I think this 1989 C4 is exceptional based upon the build quality, performance, and convertible option.

Looks Good, Ran Good, Handled Good, Made Me Crazy With Quality Issues. — Great handling, fast, seemed lighter the faster you went. Six speed shifter was fantastic. Too flexible, too many things go wrong, ride extremely harsh with many rattles and shakes. Only kept it 5 years. Trade in allowance just about paid for the Miata.
