This is not a cheap car to take care of by any means, however, when compared to other cars that have similar performance it is a bargain! Parts are expensive compared to regular drivers. You need to order parts a few days before you plan to work on it, but that is part of the appeal. Usually the parts are in overnight, and longest I waited was two days.
I have a hard time explaining just what this car can do. Most people think that is just a mild step up from a pony car, but having owned a 1976 Trans Am (400), 1987 Mustang GT (302 auto) and a 1988 IROC Z (305, five speed) I have to say that they were slugs. The Corvette pulls harder at 140 than they did at 80. The car just does not seem to slow its rate of acceleration! A simple rule for cornering is this, double the posted speed limit and you'll most likely be able to keep it in your lane. It just plane has unreal performance potential.
Especially with a few exhaust, throttle body, and ignition changes.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
