Performance at an excellent price / value

Cons

Poor interior quality.  Tough to get into / out of.

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.

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.

Power, sleek, sexy, reliable, and more.

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.

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!

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!!

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.

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.

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.
