We’ve owned her for four years, long enough to check off “owned a C4 Corvette” from our auto bucket list. Now it’s your turn. She leaves us in better shape than we acquired her so our loss is your gain.

While I’m sure you’re an awesome guy/gal and a pillar of the community, no drives without cash in hand. I won’t reply to questions that are answered by reading this post.
I won’t consider lowering the price unless you make the effort to come look at her.
The Boomer jokes about white tennis shoes were sorta funny a decade ago. Cliches suck, and I’m not even a Boomer.

Just The Facts, Ma’am:

1990 Corvette with 6-speed manual transmission as the gods intended

Convertible for ruining your date’s pompadour or bouffant

110,000 miles on the odometer, just enough to correct all the mistakes the factory made

Kenwood DDX6904S state-of-the-art headunit & stock Bose speakers

Headunit incorporates both a crash dash camera and backup camera

Cold air conditioning because we’re not savages

Cruise control that works and has a user UI that still makes no sense to me

At least 50% tread on Cooper 275/40R17 tires

New aluminized complete exhaust system and new catalytic converter

New KYB Gas-a-Just shocks front & rear, aligned, tires rebalanced

New knock sensors, new oil pressure sending unit, new valve cover gaskets

Adjustable temperature cooling fans: this car never overheats

A great mechanic services this car in St. Pete and conveys with her …

A whole bunch more

$8500 or a very, very interesting trade on a Datsun or RX7

Minor Details I Chose To Live With:

Tachometer reads 50% too high

Should be driven once a week or left on battery tender. Has battery disconnect switch

Brakes work awesome but one rotor is slightly warped thus a minor wiggle at quick stops

The price reflects the small demerits on this list 😀
