Not in the market to buy, but I have always liked them. Lotsof good high school memories beating around in Vette's but I never really knew anyone that found a good balance between handling, speed and style.

I have driven a million of them and I know the c5+ is just light years better in nearly every aspect, but for some reason I still love the last style C4's.

Id like to know about some high hp, very good handling c4's.

yeah i mean i know plenty about them, but yet I really never hear info on any tuned ones. Id love to see a 600hp c4 with the proper suspension mods to it but I just dont hear about it.

This is a great forum:

corvetteforum

Just ask the experts. There are some VERY cool write ups on twin-turbo ZR-1 projects as well as Callaway twin-turbo C-4s over there. The ZR-1 guys have to give an arm and BOTH legs to seriously mod their cars!! There is a guy over in TX that prowls around in a Callaway with something like 550 RWHP/750 RWTQ (a couple years ago, maybe more now) and he has been known to wax some very fast cars over there. :D

Auto or stick? The ZF 6-speed tranny is VERY strong. The TH700R4 auto trans alllllways needs to be modified.

I have been involved with, helped build, driven, and raced many, many C4 Vettes. They have a special place in my heart. I still think the body lines are sexier than a C5 or fugly C6.

Good friend of mine has a uber-clean stock-appearing 1996 Gran Sport C4 that runs 10's with heads, cam and spray. Fun car!

I myself love the c4's, but then again I have a soft spot and respect for the old school. I plan to buy an old vette eventually, they are just too sexy.

Yep. I also like '05 Mustangs but I hate C6 Vettes. What's your point?

I have hardcore pictures of your ex-girlfriend. Now you are NEVER getting them...

'96 IIRC.
Wob: I know Lingenfelter created a black 383 C4 that ran high 11s in the quarter and hit 1.0g on the skidpad. It had a set of Fikse wheels...aww man, I was in love. It was tested in a MotorTrend mag, against a Hennessey Viper Venom 600, Kenne Bell Cobra, DC Sports NSX, a supercharged Techart Carrera, and a Renntech CL700. This was March of.....97....i think.... :dunno:

Do you have any pictures of said GS? Glad to see I'm not the only person in this thread who thinks the C4 looks better than the C5 :)

well c4's and mk3s look a lot alike, and they were direct competition.

mustangs and vettes are a poor comparison.





have fun with those pics ya dirty old man :stickpoke

i too love the C4s. i REALLY like the interiors a lot more than the C5s too. more cockpit like, so damn low to the ground. i thought the C4s had a great suspension as well.
