The C4 Corvette might have been the least curvy Corvette ever built, but I believe that history might judge it nicely in the future. Built from 1983 through 1996, it has proportions and lines that are pleasing to the eye without the unnecessary Pontiac-style plastic body cladding that adorns every nook and cranny of a modern Corvette. Years from now, when people are trying to figure out how to maintain the 10-speed dual-clutch computer controlled automatic gearbox in their mid-engine Vette, they might yearn for a car with the electro-mechanical simplicity of a C4 and find the clean aesthetics a bonus. Find this 1993 Chevrolet Corvette offered for $8000 in Gilroy (Garlic capital of the West!), CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

1993 Chevrolet Corvette
cylinders: 8 cylinders
title status: clean
I have owned this car for 6 years. Bought it with 47k and put 30k on it. It is my wife and I’s weekend car. Almost every weekend we drive the 45 minutes to Santa Cruz or Monterey for coffee. Strictly a weekend cruising car and the most reliable car I have had. Clutch is fine but I have a new Luk clutch in the box that goes with it (a buddy bought it, totaled his car, and gave it to me). Newer tires. A/C blows cold. Magnaflow exhaust, K&N panel air filter, KYB Shocks, a shifter ball (orig is included) and custom leather seats are the only mods. A lot of car for a used corolla price. Every weekend gets another 150 miles or so.
