1984 Chevrolet Corvette targa Crossfire Injection from Italy
Dealer promised to change all doors and roof gaskets, and after 3 years I had to order them for $600.
Some interior lights had to be replaced.
This year radiator started to lose coolant liquid making the engine to blow on warm days like a hot soup.
Brakes need to be checked.
Alternator does not work properly.
Same old story. You buy a used car from a 100 tooth smile dealer and seems it never ends surprising your wallet. After all it's an old one and who knows what had been changed or modified to make it look new.
But oh well, that's how it is with used bergains.
After all it's a great sport classic car still able to catch attentions from anywhere (expecially women) affordable with a reasonable price, even if those 80s low performance engines should be replaced with something new.
I think this is one of the slowest Corvettes because of the old Crossfire Injection (from 79 to 86 I guess) but still kicks ass!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I am not being disrespectful of the first comment, but the cross-fire was used in 1982 and 1984 (no 1983s were made due to design problems for using a V8). To the review writer- the 1984 is the slowest of the C4s with only 205HP and 290 FT/LBS. My father raced me with his 1971 vette with 270HP+ (his is slightly tuned. My 1984 vette flew past him without a problem. By the way it is stock!
The 1984 was the first corvette to be called a super car. With it's 49/51 weight it handled better than any corvette before it and with the Z51 package you were sure to have one of the best handling cars in the world- even by today's standards.
