Default Car Bought - 96 LT4

Interesting process buying a car from out of State, arranging shipping etc. A bit of a challenge getting it licensed, some hoops in California...SMOG, Vin Verification, but happy to report I got that straightened out yesterday. Thank GOD for AAA DMV Services.

Car is an Unmodified, all original BASE Red on Red 1996 LT4 with 13,900 miles. Cosmetically, the car is pristine MINT inside and out. Still had the original Goodyear tires that rode like wood obviously. Replaced those yesterday with Continental Extreme Contacts.

I'm going to have to go through this thing and replace all fluids, belt hoses etc, but the car runs and drives well and everything WORKS.

If one is going to buy a C4, than LT4 or ZR1 for the win !

Very nice.
You'll see soon C4's start to appreciate just like the C3's are doing now. It's crazy out there.

Looks like you bought a nice garage queen. Apply a good protectant on the paint (Norm approved) and drive it!

It was detailed by Pete Tanzini (Velocity Channel) prior to shipping.

You may be a little off on the poo-pooing C4's, there are a lot of nice C4's out there, and they are making a come back shaking off the stigma.
You have yourself a nice car there, I'd be proud to scoot around in that.

I will say 31k since they didn't make that many and it's a California car.

Is being considered a Kommiefornia car an asset or liability?
