by Funone on Sep 18, 2003 Vehicle: 1992 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible
I bought this car as 14 years old with
just under 36,000 miles. It looks and
rides like just off the show room floor.
Red with Red interior, 6 speed and all
the fun you can pack into the CD with
Beach Boys music. It is ALL AMERICAN low
end grunt with V8 horse power! Gas
mileage is great on the highway as 23
MPH and city driving at 18. My Jeep only
gets 18 highwat and 14 city. Other
claims of Vette milage like a Honda
civic are just not true.

I bought this 1992 beauty 6 months /
8000 miles ago, at 17000 original miles
after 10 year storage in
Indianapolis... drove home to
Vancouver, Washington via El Paso and
San Diego... 4000 miles in 13 days...
Got 30.1 mpg and didn't use a drop of
oil... Now at 25000 miles and 12 years
of age, car is flawless, with a history
of zero repairs to date, still on
original spark plugs, dry oil pan
bottoms (no drip or leaks), not even a
rattle... every-day driver, averaging
22.3 mpg around town with perfect
performance from the 300 hp LT-1 5.7
liter, 6-speed manual, 3.45 axle
drivetrain... "Hats Off" to the Bowling
Green contingent of General Motors!!!
New base V8 is the LT1 engine, making 300 horsepower. ZR-1 gets fender badging to distinguish itself from lesser Corvettes. All Corvettes get traction control standard. Speedometer swaps spots with the fuel gauge for better readability. A Quiet Car option adds weather-stripping and sound insulation.
