Loved It From Day One — I like the way it rides and handles. I've taken it on several long road trips. Even after a 16-hour day of driving, I still couldn't wait to get back into it the next day. It's an awsome automobile.

Pros

The speed and torque is immense with the added Performance SuperChip.
The custom exhaust exacerbates the roar of the engine.
The custom blue ghost pain job (8k) with fading decals makes this a head turner.

Cons

Minor scratches here and there.

It Is The Nicest Cars I Have Ever Seen For Under $20,000. — Driving it is a thrill! It is a definite super car for under $20,000! Acceleration immediately causes the back wheels to go off veer and then back straight. It is quite a sight and feel to drive this Blue Ghost. Its an amazing car all around.

Pros

It's a Corvette first and foremost, that's all that nees to be said! However, I'm a female so I won't/can't stop there. She's one sexy ride. Handles like a dream. Love the instrument panel and HUD (heads up display). If you can keep your foot out of it then you can get around 28/29 mpg which I found surprising since it is an 8 cyl, great for road trips. Truly a joy to drive and reasonably inexpensive to maintain compared to most other sports cars. Excellent stock Boise sound system. Lord that thing rocks! The two top option is cool, you can either sport the solid or smoked glass top.

Cons

Two person vehicle. It is very accommodating for tall people but not overweight friendly and sits fairly low to the ground so if you're not in shape it can be difficult to get in and out of. The vehicle itself sits pretty low so you really have to watch humps/bumps until you get used to it. The seats hardly recline at all. It has run flat tires, which are stock for my '99 and are rather expensive and if you cannot afford the run flat tires there is no area for a spare tire. When you have the top off there is virtually no room in the hatchback where you store the top.

Of All The Vehicles I've Owned Thus Far, This Has Been My Favorite! — The ONLY thing I do not like about this vehicle is the fact that the seats can't recline, due to obvious reaons. It really sucks when you're traveling and need to pull over for a quick nap, but I doubt that would concern anyone under the age of 40. But still, after the nephew/niece no longer want to hang w/their Aunt and I won't need a 4 door, I will buy another Corvette.

Quick As Hell. Its Worth It. — Vette's are just pure power. Chevy didn't really put the most thought into styling when they built the C5. Everyone was already taken back by how different it looked compared to the C4. Its LS1 threw everybody off guard with how much torque it really had and just how much punch there was. I love it but i could go for some more styling details.

If your afraid of speed

Mesmerizing — The 1999 Chevy Corvette Converible is an awesome driving machine. It handles well at low rpms and is disciplined. At higher speeds the covertible corvette entices you to accelerate beyond the legal speedlimits, while captivating the attention of entranced spectators.

Pros

Quick acceleration,  good handling and bodystyle is nice to look at!

Cons

Stock rotors are junk...recommend change to crossed drilled or slotted brake rotors!

You Cannot Go Wrong With A Daily Driver Like This And Beat Up On It Every Weekend! — Great performance for the BUCK! Acceleration is for this year against newer vehicles is still quick! A 0-60 time on average is 5 sec. to 4.7 sec. w/stick! Stock brakes fade after high speed deceleration, they WILL WARP! The Vette is confident and predictable when pushed and you know it's limits when the tail comes out! I pushed my car to it's limits, with the TOP OFF it will do 165 mph on the speedo! The exterior styling of this model run is low and sleek! Interior is plastic and easy to clean but my interior is all black and will bake your backside! Batteries and tires is all I have put into the vehicle so far, as well as regular required maintenance so cost of ownership is relatively cheap! The car is a blast to drive, easy to maintain and can be modified to rediculous power levels! Spare parts are everywhere! I have recommended 1999 or newer to my friends and 3 friends took my advice and actually purchased one for their use and love it! The car is great to drive and is comfortable on a long trip and you can carry lots of luggage in the back!
