The Sebring Silver Corvette, Very Fun To Drive! — Everyone should own a vette at least once in your life. I have drove many kinds of cars, I own a Cadillac CTS sport coupe (not a V). It is very fast and agile. With a vette being down closer to the ground it really gives you a sense of speed better. The closest thing you can get to a race car feel. I hope this helps. I know you want to know why I am selling. Cant afford both and the caddy is more practical. Some day when I retire I will get another one. Have Fun!

Pros

Awesome extreme powerful car. Just give it a little gas and you are splittin gone ripping down the road !!! The color "Torch Red" is the best color which is very eye-catching ! It is so easy to control and it gives you a sense of power of the highway its great.

Cons

The cons of this car are few and far between. Actually the con of it would be that once you get in it you dont want to get out of it.

G Force Thrust Fun Fun Fun — I love the way it handles on the highways and it is alot of fun to drive and its difficult to bring it home and park it after the unique fun driving experience that you have. It brakes wonderfully and will stop on a dime, and I'v never felt safer in any other car over the last almost 40 years of driving numerous types of cars. The shape of this car is so sporty- sophisticated and lean that it is a head-turner anywhere you go and gets numerous compliments. It is very comfortable to ride in and drive as well, it is definitely a highly desirable car and lovable.

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.

The Best Bang For Your Performance Buck. — High raves for power / performance / handling. Rants for poor interior quality, high side sills make for difficult entry / exit. Can never say enough good things about the small block 5.7 Chevy LT4 engine! It pulls like a train. Excellent bang for your buck!

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

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.

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.
