After 18 years, still a "eye catcher" and one fast machine! Approx. 122k miles with no major repairs! Best performance car I've owned! If you want a great looking, fast and a joy to drive find yourself a C4 Vette! Handles great and lots of torque!
Excellent handling! Great torque! Overall approx. 24 mpg! Eye catcher! You still can find them at a great price!
I purchased this Corvette for fun and it has certainly not disappointed. While a bit tight to get into and out of, you can't drive it without a smile on your face. Power is adequate, not mind boggling. Handling is great. Convertible top, though manual, goes up and down with ease.
The seats sit too low to the floor and the driver's door ledge makes it hard to get into and out of.
Bought it new and store it every winter.
It is completely original down to the
tires. Each spring is a kick in the
pants when it is brought out of the
garage. The 6 speed shifts smoothly and
easily tops 100 in 3rd. On trips it
always gets at least 28 miles per
gallon. What more could you ask
for...and when I bought it there was a
$10k factory incentive so it only cost
$28k new. WOW!!
Sophisticated power torques right up to
the red line. 6 speed is a pleasure to
shift. Classic shape will never go out
of style. Starts immediately after
6month storage each winter. Very
Diconnect shift restrictor that forces 1
to 4 shifts under low power (its easy to
do). Install an exhaust system that lets
the car sound like it goes.
I own an 87 Corvette - only 30,000
miles on it - runs like a new car,
performs like a race car. Chev was
right at the top of their game. IT's a
joy to work on, modify and lots of
stuff to buy to make it even better...
cheap to buy used, and cheap to modify
to stellar levels [compared to other
high po cars]. No problems, except the
Power, style, handling... and complete
disappearance of roof... did I mention
power? Pin you in your seat and keep
you there to 100MPH...
Relax the car alarm system - biggest
headache of all. Thankfully there is a
kit to remove it.
