Mass Airflow Sensor isn’t made anymore. And parts for other things on Vette are becoming hard to find. That being said. I’ve had 2 of them back in the day and were great cars.

Top American Sports Car In 1985 — i bought this 1985 corvette with 3200 original miles on it,drove it home and it has resided in mygarage ever since.i have driven it a total of 700 hundred miles,this car is not a driver or weekend car.it is driven once or twice a year and not very far.i would like to really drive it more and get to know it better but i think it should be kept as an investment car and for someone else down the road to do the same.

Pros: handling is tight,seats comfortable,great bose speakers,

Cons: dash electrics malfunction whether you have 100 miles on car or 10 thousand.

Overall Alot Of Car For The Money — This is my first corvette and it has not disappointed. Fast strong and stuck to the road. You look out over that long hood and know that its just you and the motor and she inspires you to use all 230 horses. Confidence is what this car makes in spades, you know she will run wild but the brakes also will regain control and bring to you down to reality when needed. She temps you to hit corners faster and hammer you way out.

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

Pros: Comfortable, did not expect it to be as comfortable as it is, fast, handling is amazing, resurgence of horsepower from Chevrolet.

Cons: Bose stereo system installed by factory has history of going bad, amps are expensive to replace, harmonic balancer also has history of failure causing timing issues

Great Driver — Not for show. Needs to be driven to really enjoy it. With the top off it is very enjoyable to travel around in. It was an everyday driver for me until I retired. Now it is an occasional ride on nice days

Pros: Great power and handling

Cons: 2seater

Performance Is Outstanding — I fell in love with the looks of this model when it came out in 1984 but I waited until the '85 model to buy one. I have owned it since new. The car has always lived up to my hopes. after 28 years it still turns heads.

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

Pros: power,handling

Cons: nothing

Race Ready — Like: I like the new carburated 350 engine. The factory fuel injected engine has been replaced with a higher HP 350 with a simple Edelbrock Carburator. It gets 20 MPG, no computers to deal with, and winds out quickly. Dis-Like: I dont like the plastic interrior, which is typical for the 80's model Chevys. I dont like the electronic dash cluster. Difficult to view. Ride is terrible, but is a sacrifice for road handeling.

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

Pros: The car is a pleasure to drive. It looks and sounds like it should be on the race track with very little prep work. I bought a true classic hot rod for under $5000.00 with very little work done after the purchase of the car. Over, all I am pleased with my weekend sunday racer.

Cons: This car is hard to enter and exit. Once inside the car, the gauge cluster is difficult to read and see. Lots of road noise, vibrations and rattles which can be expected from an 80's model auto.
