1996...best Of The C4 Generation Particularly In Lt4 Configuration — 1996 CE LT4 Coupe. LT4 @ 330HP is known to be conservatively rated. Many LT4's come in north of 360HP and will outperform %75 of newer LS1's. Not to be overlooked is, the C4 Corvette when released in 1984 was proclaimed to be; "The best handling production car ever produced" A beautiful car that still receives admiring glances.

1996 Corvette "collectors Edition — This car has been one of the best cars I have owned. It is tough to get in and out of being 6'3", but once you are in it is a magnificent vehicle. The maintenance is minimal - oil and lube, and not much else. The tires are staggered sizes and directional, so there is no rotating. The dash looks like a fighter jet cockpit. It is much more attractive IMO then the newer Corvette dashes which have become large and more plastic in appearance. Both front seats are 8 way power and are very comfy. all in all compared to it's peers of other sports cars, this car offers much in the way of styling, performance and comfort, as well as reliability which is a bonus that others cannot always boast! I highly recommend this vehicle.

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

One Great Car! — Coldest a/c system of any car I ever owned. White with black top and luggage rack. Car was fast and just glowed in the dark when she was all shined up.

Corvette — It is a 1996 collector's edition there are a little over 5,000 ever made. It is undefeated on the street. It was great stock and now that i have modded it, it is even better. I don't race anymore on the street cause there is no body that can beat me out there.

1996 Corvette — Great Awesome Car! Had a smile on my face everytim I got out of it. Bone crushing acceleration, bladder emptying braking andg-suit requiring handling. I've been a Corvette fan as long as I can remember and it was a dream come true to have not only one, but two!!

Little White Corvette — this car is fast at 80 mph it will still lay you back in the seat when you give it gas! no real problems with the car it is a very sound american made car. love the look also it is very sleek and definitely a head turner and it gets better gas mileage than the v-6 mustang that i traded for it!

Very light so she gets a little loose with snow.

96, Best Year For Vettes — This car is just pure automotive excellence. It is what everyone on earth should drive; a fairly cheap car that has a good amount of power along with a lightweight cassis, oh and it must be RWD. If you ever get bored with a vette you are not a car guy, just a tool.

Don't think you won't drive it fast or race people because you will.

Cons

That it will not last forever.

Greatest Car Ever — I bought my car with 93K miles on it, and I have put about 10k on it in about four months. I love driving it. The worst part of this car? I want to drive it all the time. I get antsy and anxious when I cannot drive it. It has amazing acceleration, excellent brakes (thank God because I live in DC), and surprising fuel economy.

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