This is a 1992 Polo Green convertible with a tan top. The car has 25K original miles. I have stored this car for 18 years. The car turns every head it passes. When it was time to remove it from secured professionally stored area, I had the car prepped and made road ready by a facility that only deals in stored and preservation vehicles. In my opinion, this is the only way to store and bring back to life any car, especially a Corvette. I'll use it for the summer and then back to sleep for another few years.
I'm an Aircraft Mechanic and this is similar to a cockpit so I feel right at home. Ride is rough but it's a sports car, what do you expect. 6 speed tranny is great.
My Vette kept draining the Battery. Went to several shops that couldn't find the problem. I finally hooked up a test light in series with the battery terminal and pulled the fuses one at a time till the light went dim. The Bose Radio has a short. So I agree with the other reviewers. Lose the Bose.
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.
6 speed shift with a real clutch, none
of this automatic stick shifts like the
German car producers promote.
I have owned 6 Corvettes.. all have had
the "Delco Bose" sound system.. It is a
piece of junk. They all have given me
problems and must be the highest
warranty item that GM makes.
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!!!
Cosmetic finishing is excellent, noting
the upholstered and carpeted door
panels and right dash vs. plain plastic
on newer models. Only negative lack of
luggage capacity in this C4 convertible.
The sport seat of this model has a hip-
level cusion extension projecting from
the seat back... This takes an
unavoidable beating on driver entry /
exit resulting in unavoidable excess
