I had an '87 vette in the early/mid 90's....the car itself was FINE, the only thing I did not like about it was the narrow seating....It was a pain in the hips....it got 27 mpg on the freeways up north....best I can get with similar engine/auto/drivetrain is 24 on my '72.....so just other than the seating, just WHAT was supposed to be SO bad about panning the C4??? for the record, I have '89 vette wheels and 50 series tires on my '72 now, and have had them for some 22 years now....

I have upgraded my '72 with all the C4 injection, serp drive....etc....

IF I had the health, and $$$ I would love to upgrade to an LS engine, but other than that one point....I see no negatives toward the C4 corvettes....

Well, there is a late 80's-early 90's C4 sitting on a used car lot on my way to work. Been sitting there forever. Price on windshield now in shoe polish letters is "make cash offer"!!!!

I write most of that price crap off to the generational interests in cars....

as I have probably posted about before.....

and it's accentuated by the lack of talent/interest in DPFI and programming and all that WIRING, THAT alone scares hell out of most kids.....

too boot all the stupid .gov regs about mods......

I don't have anything against C4's. I really don't like the earlier versions with the Atari style instrumentation, but the mid 90's cars are pretty dope IMO. I really wouldn't mind having a clean 96 LT4, specifically a CE with Red Interior, but they aren't common...And most C4's are pretty roached at this point.

Where is this car? I am somewhere in GA as well, and sort of looking for a running but needy C4 for cheap. "make offer" might just be right up my alley.

I'd still drive the hell out of a '96 Grand Sport.

It's not like he asked for a 1975 C3.

Warner Robins on Watson Blvd near the AF base. The car looks ok from the road, but that is as far as I'll go with that.

For the past year or so, we've been driving past this little hole in the wall dealership. There's a red C5 vert on the lot. This past Saturday we finally stopped in to take a look at it. It's a '99, automatic, and has seen better days. As it has only 60k on it, the owner is asking $17,900. About 10k too high, considering it needs paint, brakes and maybe a tranny rebuild if it's been sitting too long.
