If this was the mustang website, and someone said c4s are ugly....sure itd go in one ear and out the other.

If you knew me , you would know that my car hobby is probably 5th on my list.
Touche, I really don't care for the C7's. I like the looks of the square tail lights of the C4's a lot better than the camaro tail lights and the triple pointed splitter things on the C7's.

Might have made sense to let people know to check the comments if you wanted them to check the comments.

Truth is where you find it. And, the truth is, the C4 Corvette was revolutionary; ahead of its time. It is so very capable of performing in so many venues, and doing it well.

Is the C4 eclipsed by newer Vettes? Let's hope so! But, I say that 90% of Corvette owners never have driven their cars to the edges of the envelope, comprehensively. For most of those mouth bone-heads, the !/4 mile is the be all measure of a car's performance, and they're unable or unwilling to acknowledge the Vette beyond that.

Beyond that, there's the SCCA and the Corvette Challenge cars of the late 80s and early 90s that dominated to the point the SCCA excluded the Corvette from competition because it won all the events. And, long as records are being kept, the FIA world record for endurance-speed (for a production car) is still the record set by the C4 Corvette ZR-1.

Until recently in the last few years, HANDLING was seldom mentioned in the same discussion with Corvettes. If anything has pushed Corvette to the mid-engine platform, it is the erosion of the Corvette's prowess in the twisties: Camaro, Mustang, and even the Demons have come to the bar to rub shoulders with the Corvette. So, in my way of thinking, the current front engine platform has reached the end, far as revolutionary performance advances are concerned. The obvious next step IS the mid-engine platform, a platform that will stand apart from the reborn muscle car crowd for evermore, me thinks.

Lately, the crowds gathering to oogle and take pictures have shown a growing interest in the C4 Zs. Lots of questions, and still a crow pleaser. So, taking all of the Corvette generations in consideration, exploring and taking the time to become educated of the changes beginning in 1953 to present, the progression line from the beginning to present is steady and continuous with only a few potholes along the way. And, if anything, the C4 amounts to a significant rise in overall performance in the line of progression since 1953. Let the record stand. The C4 has noting to be embarrassed about or denigrated for either.
Now this post is keeping it real.

Everything quoted is reason I just bought my fourth C4 (and my first convertible).

This thread threw me off. I read the front page article when first posted, IIRC last week, prior to nasty posted comments. The article is a nice positive review, granted one man's opinion. I followed the link to see if I missed something. In a few seconds the comments section loaded. The target of our ire should be words posted by Kevin Smith. Don't worry, some have come to the C4s defense.

If you don't follow the link in the first post, you must click on page 4 to find the article. It was on the "front page" when originally posted July 1st.

True, I never understood people that own cars yet bash the cars or other generations of the model, and I don't mean like some offhand comment, I mean like go out of their way to write up doctorate dissertations of why they hate XYZ.

I have a couple of different generation Vettes including my C4s and if I didn't like em I wouldn't buy/drive them and that's that - I certainly wouldn't trip over myself in running to a podium to trash 'em. SOME in the newer gen community are soo condescending to other, older gen Vette owners, that whole holier than thou approach...hate to say it but those are the same owners that give the Corvette owner community a bad rep.

So what if it's ugly? Late-model C4s are the best $5000 sports cars you can get.

No comments to see...looks like they were all removed. Good. Personally, I ignore people that try to do nothing more than stir up trouble...that's why I've never subscribed to ANY social media sites. There's always someone pinhead looking to cause a ruckus or engage is some way or another. I've got better things to do with my time than engage with the mindless.

Nice article though.
