Keeping her till something out-does her

1996 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe


Bought 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 Features

Looks 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 Features

Aftermarket 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.
