1992 Chevrolet Corvette LT-1 CONVERTIBLE 350 from North America


A Mustang Killer!



General Comments:

This car is a rocket on wheels, and very comfortable to drive. Handles extremely well, convertible top is simple to use, and it gets very good gas mileage. No problems so far.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1992 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 5.7 LT1 from North America


The best investment ever


Automatic Transmission went after 70,000 miles. Automatic Traction Control went bad after 45,000 miles. Top Rattles.

General Comments:

Overall this car is the best thing I ever bought. I purchased an after-market hard top for it which made it even better. I don't buy expensive tires for the car. I bought my last tires at Pep Boys for $139.00 each and they ride 10x better than the Goodyear GSC tires that came on it. If you are looking for a great car that can reach 150 plus miles per hour and corner better than any other car, buy a Corvette. It is American as well which shows that you are not a poser driving a Porsche or BMW.

I have driven quite a few Vettes including your year. I currently have a 2000 Viper with the close ratio 6 speed. As you indicated Vettes are absolutely the best all time performers, but somehow I outpass them... but again its not a Corvette just a Viper...right?

Yes and you paid $30000 more for your car.

I love the muscle of my 1992 convertible Vette, but I also like the finesse and reliability of my 1983 911 Porsche.

Corvette; get the Z06. It took Chevy a long time to get it right or at least compete with the Europeans. Now with GM and the auto industry in trouble, get the classic 911.

I own a 1992 Corvette convertible LT-1. It is a wonderful machine, but not as refined as my 1984 Porsche 911 Super Sport, also known as a factory widebody. If you are looking for reliability, and enjoy the track and road driving, save a few bucks more and purchase a 84-89 Carrera; they are so bullet proof it will be cheaper in the end to own. My children can also enjoy the rear seat of the 911. That's all that back seat is good for, kids.

The Vette has no real problems, but I just don't drive it as much. I mostly prefer the 911 so the Vette gets more garage time. I changed the plugs on the Vette last week and wondered who the hell designed that thing; they should be forced to work on it!!!

Ya Vette's are great, but I would only buy the Z06 or the Porsche 911 years 1984-89. If you like to do your own work and maintenance, buy the 84-89 Porsche. No water pump or radiator, no power steering pumps, it's just designed simple and functions very well. The ride is RAW, I personally love it. The Z06 will eat the older Carrera alive in a race, but will cost more in repairs and insurance.
