Just bought a 1987 Corvette. I have been concerned about the high temp while sitting in Traffic, and am EXTREMELY relieved to know it is normal to run at 230 in stopped traffice.
Before you go to far I would recommend you go online to as many of the corvette forums you can and read as much as you can about your new arrival to the family. Get to know the beast and its operating "normal" before going too far. Being a former Corvette owner I know most garages including Chevy dealerships will see you as nothing more then a blank check when you walk in their door for service. Congratulations on your purchase.
