I Love The C5 Corvette! — In my opinion, the C5 is the best class of Corvettes and I love this car. Its the first Corvette I have ever owned and couldn't be more pleased. My wife and I love to put the top down and cruise around on the weekends, the car definitely turns heads. We don't use the car as a daily driver, but its the type of car that could be your primary vehicle. Though its a convertible, I was very pleased with the amount of trunk space (easily fits 2 sets of golf clubs).

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

Great Week-end Car. — Best driving car I have ever own. Handles great, more HP than you will ever need. Pretty good on gas as well. The interior is cheaply made, but the paint is great, shines good and the controls for everything are hard to use sometimes.

Love It — I have owned a vette since 1969 and each and every one was very special to me. The Vette I own now is a 1998 Torch Red, black interior,this Vette was a Museum delivery car, I had the opportunity to watch as it was being built, and I was first to start it. This Vette has a lot of sentimental value and I probably will keep it for the rest of my life. It now has 8913 actual miles on it.

1998 Chevrolet Corvette — Great car, great fun. Acceleration is amazing and no matter where you are in the powerband, you put down the pedal and you better hold on. The brakes are strong and the car handles like it is on rails with no body roll and very little tire squeal from the monster rubbers. The LS1 engine and drivetrain are bulletproof, while the body and interior leave a little to desire in the quality department. Ask anyone the first American sports car that comes to mind and everyone will answer the Corvette. The beauty of the car will get you in, but the performance will make you never want to get out.

At First Glance You'll Say Wow! — I love everything and dislike nothing about my corvette. These cars are very fun to own. I recommend any sports car enthusiast to get into one of these. Now these days you can get a C5 for a good price!

Pros

This autombile is better than therapy. People old and young approach and engage in very interesting conversations. Winning 2 first place trophies last year.

Cons

The only negative: the long New England winters when the Corvette stays in the garage under the cover on its jackstands.

Best Fun Ever! — Very low cost on maintenance. I spend more for wax, polish and cleaning supplies than repairs. Actually the only maintence the car has required in 2 years, was new front brake pads. The car is only driven 1,500 miles a year.

Best Sports Car — I like just about everything; the maintenance is a little more than I like, but it is an awesome sports car. You do have to be careful when driving over speed bumps; it sits very low to the ground, about 3.5 inches.

98 Vette — I have had it since 2006 and use it as a daily driver, getting 26 or 27 mpg average. It is the best car I have ever owned. The only reason I would sell it is to get a newer one.

Great Car, Great Gas Mileage, A Real Winner! — This car is Fun and the gas mileage makes it a sure winner. I drove the car from Texas to North Carolina and averaged 31 MPG going 70 on the interstate. The C5 body style is timeless and is in actually a more refined body style than the newer C6, so until something better comes along I will continue to enjoy driving my 1998 C5.

Pros

this is a really beautiful torch red Z06 coupe, very fast car, with a stainless steel Bola exhaust system with 2 large exhaust tips out the rear, not 4 like all the Corvette's, she also has the side vents for cooling off the rear brakes system, not all Corvettes have that, chrome Z06 wheels 17 inch on front & 18 inch on rear, on the super high way,  if I dreive her normally or on cruise control, I get 30 mph per gallon of Sunoco 94 Octane gasolione bought in New Hampshire at $3.50 per gallom

Cons

she has no cd built into the am/fm radio

Great Other Then She Is Not A Convertable — with the LS1 engine the crank shaft pulley had to be changed at 50,000 miles, I think the dealership I took it to screwed her up just to have me come back for service & repairs or to trade her for something else? new belts every year, recharge the a/c ever year, until they changed the a/c compressor, it still leaks & needs a recharge once again, this time instead of wasting $300 per rechage I did it by myself & bought over the counter at Auto Zone in Derry, NH 3 cans of frion 134A
