    Default Any c4 love here

    Hoping things work out tomorrow. Looking at a 95 vette 6 spd with z07 package and 52k miles. Thinking that I probably is pretty rare with color and options. Anything I should look out for with these cars IMG_6958.JPG

    That's a very clean Vette. Everyone hates on C4s but they're a bargain for the cost right now. Being a 6 speed makes it so much better. I want to ditch the auto in the 93 but Im considering doing an LS/manual trans swap down the line.

    As for things to look for:

    Stress cracks in the lower fenders (driver side has to be removed for battery replacement)

    Mono-leaf spring is composite, look for cracks/chips etc, it'll need to be replaced if there's any damages so it doesn't break under load

    Squeaks and rattles in suspension, they're pretty simple but costly in parts for the rear axle

    Seals, look for dryrot, not sure if that's a Targa Top, but they flex and leak/make a ton of noise

    If it's got the Z51(I think) suspension, check for the ability to adjust the suspension settings (I'm not too familiar with this option, my coworkers car had a bunch of costly issues)

    All of the digital display and electric controls, there's a lot to go wrong

    And lastly, tune-up schedule. The plugs are a pain and wires are virtually impossible.

    The C4 is the only Corvette I would drive....But not in yellow! Lol.

    I really like the Polo Green ZR1, however, as I understand it they're massive money pits.

    I don't know exactly, I haven't done a whole lot of research. Just repeating what I've read elsewhere. I can't imagine parts being cheap, but who knows!

    The LT1 was a decent motor for the time, but it wasn't the most reliable, and hard to work on.

    I like them a lot more now that you can throw an LS engine in. No optispark LT1 mediocre power crap. I like when they have a front splitter and sideskirts, ala Silver State Classic racers. My cousin had a yellow one with the greenwood body kit...loved it!
