OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: Bronze Paint, Gold Soul
Here’s a Corvette of the Week that exemplifies why Corvette fans are among the most passionate group of people on Earth. New forum member “JVH” from Georgia recently picked up this two-tone 1985 C4 in the classic light- and dark-bronze shades. Although JVH has owned this ‘Vette only a few months, he’s been involved in a love affair with this exact car for 18 years.

This Corvette of the Week is a rare find. Chevrolet produced only 502 ZR-1s for the 1992 model year, and among those, only 48 were painted in this car’s Black Rose Metallic.
Corvette Forum members love to talk trash on me because of my love for the C4 Corvette … particularly model years 1992 to 1994. I realize generation four was not a banner era for the brand, but I think C4s would be remembered more fondly if the ZR-1 were the only variant of Corvette produced during that time. At about $60,000 in the 1990s, it was an expensive car, but it was a formidable player on the world stage competing with the likes of the Porsche 911 Turbo. I dream of owning a C4 ZR-1. Forum member “We Gone” (a.k.a. Steve) is living my dream … times two.
This is one week you will not only drool over a car, but have a story tug at your heart strings. In 2011, CF member jesters94 had to sell his ’94 Torch Red coupe before leaving on a 7 month deployment to the Arabian Gulf. While he was serving his country, the best wife ever decided […] More »
