Default Custom Black C4 Vette Raises Eyebrows

See it here: Custom Black C4 Vette Raises Eyebrows

Look. We know that C4 isn't exactly considered the golden age of the corvette. They still deserve better than this though.

Testarossa side moldings? Those didn't even look good on the Testarossa. That's not even the worst of it. Just hit the link to see what you think of this...unique C4.

Some of us would disagree with that

But I think we can agree that someone should put this thing out of our misery

In my opinion C4s aren't subject to nearly enough scorn and ridicule. Let's post a tasteless wild custom on the Corvetteforum home page to see if we can get more people to make fun of C4s!!

If it lost the wing and added back the rear hatch window, it would be a pretty sweet ride.

The C4 is, in my opinion, the best generation out there. Considering it's birth in the early 80's, when cars in general coming out of the crap 70's era, it was an engineering marvel. The C5 and C6 can't touch the leap forward the C4 represents for it's time.

And they did leave the factory nearly perfect. Not a fan of the stock wheels they put on the early models, otherwise, I have no complaints.

The thing with the wing that you linked to is an abomination, however. Burn it.

Very few cars look best left stock looking but a Vette is one of them. Do have a soft spot for the crazy body mods people did to some C1-3s...like look at them but not want to own type thing lol. Kinda like mail.

There should be. I hate seeing any nice car ruined...There's a totally riced out Mustang in my town, I'm so sorry I never have a camera handy when I see it, even Chevy guys would feel bad. Worst of all, the owner/driver is old enough to be a grandfather to most ricers.
