Yes, Got mine new in 1986, still have it, all original, but sold my 1980 Turbo Trans AM Pace Car to buy the Vette, who knew the Trans Am would be worth more

I am very happy that I bought this specific C4. I took my time shopping and this is the car for me, for now. Someday I will definitely sell this car. Not sure if I will get another sports car after that, but if I do, it will probably be a C7 Stingray or (preferably) Grand Sport.

Yes. I'd love to have a 92-95 ZR-1 beside the CE LT4 in the garage. Then, add a Lotus Esprit to the garage. Maybe a 1994 Esprit, no V8.

I am sure there are a few of us that believe we already have a C5 or C6 with the money we spent on our C4. But it has grown on me and I enjoy driving it and get many compliments. I was at one of the car local car shows Saturday surrounded by mostly C6 & C7's and was surprised how many people came up and said how much they liked the car and took pictures of it. Instead of a different Corvette I added an 06 Pontiac GTO to the fleet. A lot more easy for a big guy like me to get in and out of.

Default Just bought a 94 convertible


New to this forum. I just purchased a 94 convertible 28k miles, sport seats, automatic, bose sound and surprisingly 3.07 gearing. I personally love the look of the car, great lines, ageless and the best bang for the buck.

Nope. Depending on when my 91 takes a dump where it is prohibitive to fix, I'd be looking into no less than a C5 but realistically, I'd be tempted looking for C6 and up at this point depending on whether I could justify buying that much car for however much driving I do.

YES....I still think it is one BEAUTIFUL car. ZR1 is the one I will buy next. Hopefully a 95 like my other C4. I searched for months and was happy to buy a one owner 40,000 mile perfect car, in RED also...haha. I have owned over 300 cars and never owned a Vette. I wanted a C3 or C4. My friend had a C3 and it was just too clunky and noisey. I will still get a C3 or two some day but it will be a 70-72 car. So yes, I would DEFINITELY buy another C4.

Have a C3 and a C4. At the time I was looking at C4’s back in 2001 I always wanted a 35th Anniversary C4. Would’ve loved for a 95 ZR-1 or a 96 GS back then. Both were out of my price range at the time. Still happy with my 35th but should anything ever happen to it I would consider one those two C4’s.

My C4 (1985) seems plagued by electrical problems, my weak point, but I love the looks, handling and even the enter/exit, so yes

I miss my ZR-1 and i would love to buy a LT4 but unless i become rich and have extra driveway space itís unlikely to happen.

Yup.

I just bought mine and not only would I do it again, but I'm willing to put money into the one I have even though I'm sure I'm not getting it back when I sell it. I also probably won't have it that long - with two kids, the minivan apocalypse is a matter of "when", not "if" - and I'm already cringing over the day that I part with it. But I'll enjoy the hell out of it while it lasts. Dropping into that cockpit sure makes me smile every time...and yes, I think falling in / climbing out is part of the fun.

If having another becomes possible some day I don't know that I would "upgrade" to another generation. I know the C5/6/7 are objectively better in a lot of ways, but they don't have the same vibe for me. I'd probably look for a late C4 again, maybe a yellow or aqua one...or anything with a ZF....or a ZR-1 if I have some real dough. Here's hoping.
