Hey sparky, just be happy to have a Vette! Here is a site with all kinds of great info about your Vette including the review I included below. http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/specs/c4/1984/84perf.html "All but one driver placed the Corvette last in the cost-is-no-object rating. The car was well liked for its driver comfort and great torquey acceleration in traffic (driver quote: 'The best thing about the Corvette is putting down your firght foot and throwing great big clouds of Corvette dust on all the other traffic'). The new Corvette is much improved over the old, but still lacks the finesses of the other cars in the test. Most complaints centered on excess rather than shortcomings; 'too big and bulky,' 'overdone instrumentation' and so on. Poor ride and body rattles also made the Corvette the least pleasant to drive on an extended 3-day road trip. Make no mistake--the Corvette is an excellent car, among the best in the world, but agains the cars in this test it lost several small battles of degree." -- Road and Track Magazine, August, 1983. (comparison test including Ferrari 308 and Porsche 928) ... Good luck!
