Mohammed how did you get your hands on that 1994 C4 ? I am sure members on the Forum would love to hear how you got your hands on a C4 in Saudi Arabia ? My guess is you purchased the car here had had it shipped overseas ? My curiosity is details. Meaning what port did it ship to Saudi Arabia from the USA ? Did it go straight to Saudi Arabia or did it stop in Europe and you had to arrange shipemnt from Europe to Saudi Arabia ? I have talked to members who live in Australia and Corvettes are worth some real money once they cross the ocean. For me it so easy to get parts for my old car but you guys it must require allot of patience ! I get bent out of shape sometimes waiting for stuff in the mail. I can't imagine having to wait 2 weeks for a light bulb ! I suppose it helps to have deep pockets and then Fedex can expedite the shipment. There must be few and far between C4's in Saudi Arabia. Do you ever see C2's or C3's ? I went to the monthly Corvette meeting today in Scottsdale and saw 40+ Corvette's all years. Watching your video made me think how I take Corvettes for granted.

Nice job!

Is it a clone? Must be if it is a 94 and an LT1.
You could watch your dog run away for 3 days over at that track. LOL

I sold my 72 GMC pickup to a guy in Saudi, they really like big blocks. There's a whole bunch of clubs for different American cars and they have a lot of car show and cruises. I don't think it's a big problem importing cars to Saudi. Also they seem to have some disposable income and gas is just a little cheaper than here. Google Saudi car clubs you'll be surprised.

Rick let's get together a dozen C4's and C10's. Ship them to Saudi Arabia and sell them ! I've said the same thing about Australia.

LOL !!!

We have chevy dealer here that brings Corvettes, we have all kind of cars that you might think of.

Yes , some guys buy cars from USA, maybe because a good deal or a clean car that he can't find here in saudi, they ship it overseas directly to saudi.

Corvettes here cost almost the same in the states. But in the US there are more options when buying a used car. Color, condition of the car, since they were made in the US.


There are hundreds of C6s, Little C5s , rare C4s and C3s. C2&C1 are the rarest.

We have our own corvette club too. About 45+ Corvette members. This is only in my town which is located in the eastern region of saudi arabia. I'm not talking about the whole country.


Here are few pics just in case you can't imagine the place here




There is also ferrari and lambo dealers




A friend's GTR and ZR1




Corvette championship at Qatar




My sold 2008 Z06




My Little Daughter with the C7




The same track I raced it , 250 miles from home. There is a nearby track in bahrain we can reach in an hour. It's a lot better than this one.




at Bahrain international circuit




Sea view

Maybe to Oz. All we need is a boatload of money.

One guarantee is that there is plenty of cash in Saudi Arabia. I never heard of a ghetto or what could be compared to as a government project housing in terms of getting stabbed or raped. And I'm willing to bet there aren't any trailer parks. My point is its a worth while venture that should be explored. I see dozens of C4's on Craigslist everyday.

Must have been real nice running the track at Bahrain. The last F1 race at Bahrain was awesome. Wish I could run that track.

Planty of cash not in the hand of the people.

Anyway, yes gas is cheap here compared to the gas in the US. A litre here costs $2.25 (95 octane).

Yea it's a nice track. I didn't attend the F1 racing though, not a fan of it.

Whats the deal with Tafheet/Hajwalah?

Crazy people doing their own hobby which is dangerous and not even a sport.

Making sideways with a sedan car on high speed. This is happening only in few places. Illegal and caused a lot of fatal accidents.

I never saw this in person , becasue it's far from me. Even if it's close, i wont bother myself to see that.

I have a friend from Saudi who had never even heard of it till I showed him the youtube videos. Literally hundreds of people crowded on the sides of the highway watching people die..

And still no one can explain the appeal to me LOL
