I had a 1990 C4 Vert.
This was a great car. Lots of fun to drive, it required much more driver input than the C5.
The seats and cockpit were fantastic, felt like you were sitting in a fighter jet.
The L98 motor had loads of torque, but stock HP was only 250.
On the down side, they were a Royal Pain in the ass to get out of due to the high ledge. Also probably due to being a vert, old and a C4 The car felt very loosey goosey. When I installed the roll bar or when I had the hardtop on, the car was much tighter.
I loved the Clamshell hood and the style.
Allot of people did not like the C4 due to various reasons, but I enjoyed mine.
My C5 compared to the C4 is a complete different beast.
10 times stiffer frame, 100 more Hp, larger cabin, usable luggage space, better sound system, more reliable, more mod possibilities. Better handling and ride. beautiful style.
The list goes on an on, which it should because this car was a complete new design after the 1984 to 1996 run of the C4.
This Vette amazes me every time I fire it up.
The C6 is probably that much more advanced than the C5.
I love them all . They all have their ups and downs but at the end of the day they are a Corvette !!!
