Great Car To Drive — I always wanted a vet, but until recently I had no money for a sports car of any kind. I love my vet, now I'm experiencing what previously I only could admire from afar. Power, style, handling are all excellent.

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

Pros: Killer looks, great performance, power is outstanding, corners like it on rails.

Cons: Fuel econ. suck, and the ride is rough, but that's why you by a sports car.

All American Fun! — This is my first Vette, something that I dreamed of since high school. Now that prices have come down, I was able to get into it for less than $5k and it has only 80k miles. It also has the 6-speed manual transmission, selectable ride, leather, targa top, and power everything. The 240 HP along with the incredible torque, highly reactive steering, and low stance is enough to give any driver a thrill. For a 350 V8, this car is getting 20 MPG, better than my wife's little SUV with a 6 cylinder.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: For the age of the vehicle, it looks and drives like new. People admire the flowing lines, sound of the engine, and the fact that it is a true American sports car.

Cons: This is not a practical family car and maintenance costs can be expensive.

Red Rocket — After wanting a vette for years, I finally got one at age 41. Loving every minute with it! I'm just sorry I didn't get one years ago. The ride and handling are world class, and even though newer ones are more powerful, it still has a lot of get up and go.

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

Pros: Hot looks, V8 power.

Cons: Hard to get in and out. "Fall in, crawl out!"

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Awesome vehicle performance, handling, appearance

Cons: Getting in and out for elderly person

I Plan To Move And No Longer Have A Garage. — The 1989 Corvette touted a digital dashboard that still attracts quite a bit of interest. The deeply padded seats borrow from the Recaro look. I think this 1989 C4 is exceptional based upon the build quality, performance, and convertible option.

Pros: This convertible was never folded down.

Cons: Highly collectible, 22 years old on the MCO!

Looks Good, Ran Good, Handled Good, Made Me Crazy With Quality Issues. — Great handling, fast, seemed lighter the faster you went. Six speed shifter was fantastic. Too flexible, too many things go wrong, ride extremely harsh with many rattles and shakes. Only kept it 5 years. Trade in allowance just about paid for the Miata.

Pros: Acceleration and handling

Cons: Poor chassis rigidity and overall lack of quality.  Expensive to repair.

Highly Recommended For Those Who Love To Drive And Are Mechnically Inclined. Hybrid? — WOW! My only regret is that I did not own one sooner. Fast, fun, still has the looks, 27 MPG with the really nice 6 speed. With only 87K original miles, it still runs really strong. Some minor component failures but there are at least 10 places to buy all the parts you will ever need! Buy a C4, you'll love it!

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

Pros: Best car I have ever driven, That says a lot...

Cons: Now I wan't a new one...

The Coolest Car I've Driven — My dad's cousin was nice enough to let me take her Corvette for a spin. After having driven a Corvette, I am bumping the Buick Regal from #4 down to #5. What I liked as much as the performance was the digital gauges, I'm surprised more cars don't have them today.

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

Pros: Technologically advanced instrument panel for 1989

Cons: Noisy engine
