Fun Ride. — The ZR1 is a classic in Corvette history. With just under 7,000 produced from 1990-1995 they are the first real "race car" from Chevrolet. With the engine by Lotus, suspension by Bilstein, and sound by Bose, they were a magnificent engineering achievement. The saying went "life begins at 180mph". 11" rears, six speed, and an adjustable ride make the car a lot of fun to drive. Very visceral when compared to newer Vettes. Got rid of my C5's and C6's and kept just this one.

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

Loved It! — Owned for over 10 years loved it for the most part and I learned a lot about cars from working on it. Most issue were just do to wear as it had over 150K on it when I sold it. I and my son do miss it and I'll have to get another one down the road. I want something older next time though like a chrome bumpered C3 :D

1990 Hard Top Convertible Corvette — I used this car for only driving the Miss Quartz Hills in parades and have not driven it for 3 years. It's salvaged title was obtained because the fiber glass was slightly damaged, I immediately had it repaired, it runs great and looks brand new.

Timeless good looks, good mileage and kick-ass performance

Cons

Not a commuter car, not for "granny"

$ 14,000 — Loved this car from the start but wished it would run like my 1964 327 300hp stingray. Well now it does, after the performance work done by West Coast Corvette. Estimate the HP has improved from 245 to 350-365 and should run with a ZR.

Like The Last Two C4 Corvettes So I Bought Another One, Speaks For Itself. — Another Vette to the stable. This 1990 is eqpt. with the FX3, sport seats, tire press system, oil cooler, CD cassette, electronic air, and is one of 813 in steel blue. In good shape for the most part. Does have typical problems with de-lamination of the body in a few areas. Most rubber seals need replacing. For a 20 year old car it still handles well and looks good. For a 20 year old performance car fuel mileage is respectable at 21MPH in and around town.

1990 Corvette C4 — 1990 Competition Yellow, C4, Greenwood ground effects, L98. This car is awesome. A real "eye catcher" and one fast machine. Handles great and lots of torque. Great performance, awesome sound, about 25 - 30 mpg. This car is a lot of fun to drive and show well at the car shows. Pros: Great Performance Cons: Nothing

Great Handling, Torquey, Sexy Car. — The acceleration and braking are still pretty good for today's standards. Handling is easily as good as today. Build quality is fine, but a few squeaks over bumps. More related to design than build. Appearance is awesome. Relatively cheap to own, gas is great on the highway. And plenty fun to drive.

Little Red Corvette — Love my car!... HATE her previous owner. She used to drive really well but the idiot before me tried to put BOSCH quad tip platinum spark plugs in her and stripped out the #8 cylinder, which caused metal to get between the piston and cylinder and so now a rebuild is required! Other than that the car is perfect!!! Gas mileage is about 26/gal. on the highway. Paid 8 Grand for her 2 years ago.
