A cavalier is no fun. The C4 was the right choice.

I did not go to Rise and Drive with the Corvette but I was there.

Donít sell the Camaro just add a C4.

This is is great advice. Just add to the collection. Keep the Camaro. I have a stable full of Camaroís and only one Vette for now. I plan to buy a few more C4 Corvettes and a probably a couple of C3ís also. Camaros and Corvettes .....nothing sweeter.

I bought my 98 Z28 and my 95 C4 at the same time. I love them both but my 98 Z will stomp my 95 C4. Those LS engines are awesome for power and reliability. My C4 just feels right when you get in it. It feels like you wrap yourself in the car and then go driving. Just an old man rambling I guess.

If you have an IROC, do not sell it!

Bought mine in 2006 for $4,450 and sold in 2009 for $3,500.....hardtop and rare blue, on the scale of 1-10 it was a 7ish...was going to college at the time and needed the money. It would sell today for at least $10k. Kick myself everyday

DO NOT SELL IT!!!

I don't have an IROC I have a B4C. I know someone that bought a 1 owner low mile IROC convertible for $7500. If I remember correctly someone knew he was into IROC's and the owner wanted him to put a value on it for them so they could sell. He ended up buying it detailing it, then threw it on Facebook market place and sold it for $18k the same day he put it up for sale.
