Keeping her till something out-does her

Vehicle1996 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe
ReviewBought this car in February of 1997. It was my every day driver for four years. I would describe the driving experience as unique. You feel like you're in a cockpit of a jet when you first get in. The relative heavy weight and heavy steering due to wide tires can make driving a chore sometimes. However these traits also make the car feel very stable on smooth roads. Bumpy roads do unsettle the front end and the interior squeeks. Consider this if it's going to be a daily driver. Removing the top does cause "shimmying" over uneven roads. The motor is smooth, though it will frighten many female drivers especially in first and second gears.
Best FeaturesLooks and raw power. Fun to drive on twisty smooth roads. Teaching rude tail gaiters about the meaning of respect by downshifting to third and waiving bye-bye.
Worst FeaturesAftermarket shocks - this is a must. I use Koni. Stock shocks make it feel like a Cadillac on the freeway. Ride on bumpy roads sometimes feel like the world is coming to an end. Also be aware that typical repairs on a vette will cost significantly more than a standard vehicle.
