Review

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!


Best Features

Excellent handling! Great torque! Overall approx. 24 mpg! Eye catcher! You still can find them at a great price!


Worst Features

None!

Review

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.


Best Features

Convertible top


Worst Features

The seats sit too low to the floor and the driver's door ledge makes it hard to get into and out of.

Review

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!!


Best Features

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 reliable car.


Worst Features

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.

Review

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 alarm system.


Best Features

Power, style, handling... and complete disappearance of roof... did I mention power? Pin you in your seat and keep you there to 100MPH...


Worst Features

Relax the car alarm system - biggest headache of all. Thankfully there is a kit to remove it.
