Well, our moderators have voted to start this new catagory.
The C4's are all now over 10-23 years old and a few members like Scott (69shark) and now Frank (kryptonite) now own these and I'm planning a purchase of one soon for a daily driver and had one before.
...
This is a place to share some experiences and tell some stories, give tech advice, post pixs. There afterall, a few very special corvettes in this series, 1986 pace car/convertible, 1988 35th anniversary, 1993 40th anniversary and of course the ZR-1's.

Yes, this did start out as a 1977 only forum, expanded to C3 and recently C1-C2's.
After all these are CORVETTE's. ...

this could very well be a welcome addition to our ever  growing forum. i think the C-4's are currently where the rubber bumpered mid 70 sharks were, in that they are getting little respect and are suffering low resale values. this will soon change as it did for our late series sharks! i would like to extend a welcome to all C-4 owners to check in, while there are some very knowledgeable people on the forum in regards to the C-3's there maybe some help available to all you C-4 owners as well. you just never know where the answer might come from. and, this forum has some of the finest corvette entusiaist on the planet! so, sit back, tell us some stories. share some experiences and enjoy! we are all corvette, all the time!

Yup, I expanded to what you said in the mod area:

I think It'll be great! Some of us outcasts that can't afford a 77 and are stuck with the C4 will now have a place to go and hide while the rest of you talk about us!   Lips Sealed


Welcome everyone!
We don't have all the answers though! We do learn quickly though and are more than happy to share our knowledge!

Those of you that visit other forums, tell them that we now have a C4 area Grin

BTW, I really enjoyed the 87 when I had it for 3 years.

hey fak,
you got any photos? i like the later C-4's and even test drove two examples a 1987 coupe and a 1993 ruby red anniversary edition ZR-1 the latter was a super car but a wee bit out of my budget at the time. and, if i was going to buy a C-4 it would have to be a 1995 or 1996 simply because of the redesigned seat bolsters that allowed a bigger guy like me a more comfortable seat back. still, i think the C-4's are suffering the same fate as our mid-late 70's sharks did for a while. i think the series once they started racing and got back to some corvette heritage, (ZR-1, LT-1 ect.) the performance started taking off and interest was generated again with the corvette enthusiaists. these cars are worthy of attention.

You bet they are! you can get a very nice and reasonable C4 for under ten grand! OR you can get a rough Honda! Go figure!

When i ordered my C4 i ordered the base seats.The sport seats were to tight for my buns.As far as handling my 77 is like a go kart. my 93 has fx4 but for the additional 1700 dollars i dont think it was worth it.I was tempted to order the ZO7 but the ride for the old lady was important to.Getting back to the seats in 93 when i drove the 93 to carisle corvette changed to leer as there manufacture. I was asked at Carisle to sit in the new seat in the early production seats.I told the enginers from corvette the sucked and later i llearned they were recalled by GM. So those early 94 seats have very little padding but were wider..GM was heading in the right direction. I beleive the 96 vette is the best out there all the bugs are out. Whats ironic in 1995 at carisle  Kerbeck couldnot give away a grand sport. Everbody was waiting for the C5.I will come up with some pictures of my torch red 93 soon. SAVE THE WAVE
