I bought a low mileage red '85 in '86, I think exactly like the one in the video. Kept it until '94 when I bought the first '94 6 speed Z28 convertible I saw.



The '85 was a fun car for me but it's the only car with an auto I've driven on a daily basis since I was 17.

Had five C4s. Two 4+3 Z51, one at Z51, and two base coupes. The Z51 4+3 was one of the most fun cars I have ever driven.

Well, I only have one (an '85), but I had it out Monday and Tuesday.
Saw a nail in the RF tire when I was checking the battery last week,
so that was a good enough excuse to plug the tire, then drive it a bit.
99,650 miles.
