Pros

For the best in looks, cause it still looks like the a Corvette should. It's alloy wheels, the style, & the great response, makes it a joy to drive.

Cons

Not really made for driving on dirt roads

A Great Way To Drive — The feel, & comfort when driving long distances. The looks, & sound running is a one of a kind, & true to life experience. The ladies love it when remove top so they get the feel of traveling in a convertible, and with the option of the rear window lift, there's no wind resistence. I use it in parades to haul our Lions Club Sweetheart, and she loves it with all her friends showing their jealousey.

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

Nice looking and handles great. The ride is not bad for a Corvette. Could drive it anywhere.

Cons

Not alot of room once in seats, and there is not alot of storage.

Nice Car For It's Age And Wouldn't Be Afraid To Drive It Anywhere. Short Or Long Distance. — I like the looks and the gas mileage is not bad. Rides good for a Corvette. They are not made for alot of room. Iam 62 and we don't drive it much. We need more room now days. So we bought a clk Mercedes Convertable. My wife really wanted the more room. And I have had Corvettes for 20 years,. All in all, it's a nice car. Never had to do much maintance to it. Keep your oil changed and greased and everything should be fine for a 1990 Corvette. Acceleration and braking are good. It's alot of fun to drive, and you will get alot of looks. I think it's a eye catcher.

Pros

amazing performance, suck-your-eyeballs-to-the-back-of-your-skull acceleration and passenger ejecting handling

Cons

very difficult to drive. even with super wide tires, if you even look at wet road, you spin out

Great Car. Well Worth The $$ But Not For The Faint Of Heart — i once had a dream of owning a corvette. i spent my money on a porsche 944 instead. the porsche broke, and set the stage for my new story here... This car was hard to find, even in a highly urbanized area, finding a black corvette coupe with removable hardtop and six speed manual transmission was something of a miracle. i had to settle for one that wasn't a ZR1 (thank god. as much as i'd have liked one, turns out they don't make a lot of LT4 parts these days), and red leather interior. Looks good, actually, few dings on the paint (as can be understood from a car old enough to drink) but said interior takes some getting used to. Squeaks a bit sometimes, going over big bumps, but with over $4000 into sport suspension, it's my own damned fault for trying. Driving? there is no driving this car. It's more like wrangling than anything. not a car to own on a rainy day. if it snows? guess who's walking. this vehicle is aggressive, unforgiving, and acts like a jilted teenage girl on crack. It'll snap you around in a heartbeat just for thinking you had control. at least, untill you get used to it. Accelerating is an art. there is no Wide Open Throttle (WOT) on take off. if you try it, you won't go far, but you'll make some pretty smoke for a few minutes. with propper clutch control, however, it's possible to fire this 2600 lb vehicle to 60 mph at an astounding rate. i can honestly say this is one of the fastest cars i've ever driven, and by far the fastest i've owned. it pulls hard through first. through second, shift to third and feel it pulling. fourth gear is still rough, but i wasn't able to test it all the way through, going over a buck fourty at this point. with its six gears and a slightly modified (ha ha) v8, gas milage is actually not as bad as you'd think either. looking at 35+ highway, and 20+ city, it's almost twice as good as my camaro. now if i can just keep my foot off the pedal long enough to acheive such numbers for more than the week or two i took to test actual MPG. fixing this car? a headache at first, since it's all electrical and primitive at the same time. the good news is, there's no engine with cheaper parts than a good ol' bowtie 350. as long as it's a part for the motor, you can breathe a sigh of releif. if it's induction or chassis related... well it's a corvette. what do you think? handling is amazing and disappointing at the same time. This car is built for high speed turns and with a bit of practice, you can pull stunts that make every fastandfuriouswannabe jealous. the disappointing part? the fact that this car wasn't made for a parkinglot is painfully obvious when trying to get a spot. the turn radius is horrendus. there's been more than a few times i've wanted to just dump the clutch so i could whip out the back end and turn sharper. all and all, worth the money, but unless you're a hardcore driver or running from the cops, you'll probably want something else a bit less 'car.'
