80s-90s Corvette

Thinking about purchasing an 80s or 90s Corvette (depends on the price, milage etc...)

Anyone here own(ed) one? What could you tell me about them?

Yeah, I had a 99 and enjoyed it. I kept it for about two years and resold it. For me it was one of those deals where I had to scratch that itch and after two years, I had done that.

Its got plenty of power for me. The only issues ive noticed are the dash material starts to peel which causes cosmetic issues and I had an issue with the brakes. When I slammed on the brakes, it just coasted to a stop. It didnt lock up and make the car skid.

These years, the C4s are usually pretty reasonable, as are the C5s, the next generation.

Two years ago, the boss was selling her 36k mile 2001 convertible for $10,000 just to be rid of it before her son started driving.

I still kick myself for not jumping on it. It was a very pretty green with a tan top.

Wow, that would have been one hell of a deal.

Yeah, I had a pretty full stable at the time, but should have at least flipped it. She had all the original paperwork etc. and it had Borla exhaust with a 3:73 gear.

That was a smoking deal, I sold my 99 vert for 25k back in 2006 with 52k miles on it.

Just sold my 61, I was just a bit too tall for that car and it made driving more of a chore. I am looking to get into a 63-67, but haven't sat in one to let me know if that is an option. They didn't design these older sports cars for guys that are 6'5".

I had a 4 spd. vert 66 back in the day, and flipped it for $1800 after buying it for $1200.

They aren't a whole lot bigger inside than your 61. You will enjoy driving the C4 or C5 a lot better and they aren't near as pricy as the 63-67s.

A friend of ours has a 30 mile commute every day and she drive a 90's vette because she can drop it into 6th and get 25 mpg in it.

Just an odd fact.

If you can swing it, a 97 and up (c5), is a far superior car to the 84-96 (c4).

If you are going to go with a c4, get a 92 or newer. Overall, they are very reliable cars, have good power and excellent handling. The c4 rides fairly harsh, the c5 was a dramatic improvement.
