I agree with you, sir.  Although the value of a C-4 is not on the level of earlier Corvettes, they represent a major upgrade in styling, and I believe that tin time they will appreciate in value, and I really enjoy owning this genre of Corvette.  It is the second C-4 I have owned.  I am very proud to drive it.

I bought my C4, 1990 convertible last fall with 38000 miles. She's in really nice original condition, white with red leather and a white top. I've taken her long distance 4 times - I bought her to drive. I bought her quite reasonable and I've put on a new seat track, replaced one headlight motor, put on 4 tires, replaced a missing lug wrench, had the body shop adjust the passenger door and window to the soft top, and today it is in the shop for a Lateral Accelerometer to satisfy the "service ABS" light. I'm delighted with my purchase. I think I got a lot of car, for the money. If I'm extra lucky, it will appreciate.

I agree with you!! I purchased a 1996 C4 with 67K and love every minute of it. The only thing I have done so far is a routine service, clay bar and drive it. Heck, and it gets great gas mileage!! (when cruise is set).

I really like my 1994 C4....and am not concerned about the value of her. She has 85 k and all I've had to repair is the rubber gaskets on the doors and windows and replace the A.C. clutch. If I wanted a money maker I'd have bought an older year...She is our driver for vacation trips and does just fine....

I just bought my first Corvette this summer, waited 30+ years to do it. I graduated high school in 1984 and still remember all the hype of the new Corvette coming out, the delay, skipping a model year, it was all I thought about. Life happened and I have had all types of vehicles. I just sold a mint 1971 Pontiac Lemans that I have had for 20 years. I decided it was time, and began the search. I read all the forums, and figured I would end up with late model C4, but after looking at 40+ cars, my 85 found me. She has 36,000 pampered miles, 4+3, red with saddle interior and the feeling I have when I see her in the driveway is priceless. Invest in 401k's and if you are buying a Corvette for investment purposes, please don't, let someone fool like me own is dream.

Love reading all the posts.  On October 2016 I purchased my 1988 Red Corvette convertible with 68000 at the age of 73 I had always wanted a corvette. The car is like new inside it had been repainted and it has a re manufactured Jarvis transmission. The car runs good no oil burning and all the power I need love the way I can excel through the curves and love the low end torque. It has cost me about 1500 in repairs due to me being and old fool and trusting the dealer I never do that but this corvette was calling my name. I will never get my money back but with the top down, cd blasting 60's music and my wife singing she knows every line of all the songs this is incredible as she is in her fourth year with Alzheimer's which hits short term first. Next year I will buy chrome rims for her the car not my wife. 

It is nearing the time to store our cars for the winter as we usually get our first snow in November up here in New England. Take care!!! There will always be a corvette in my garage from now on.

Tight so I think I got the most bang for the buck the last one is a 96 collator edition the car is really fast with everyone thinking there not worth anything just makes the future make them rarer because no one going to save them there a great investment

I was on the fence between a C4 and a C5, and ended up with a 96 Collector's Edition Convertible. Wanted one to drive not a garage queen, but I only drive it in good weather. Took me several months to find a nice one and I hope it does increase in value someday. My biggest worry is which one of my daughters is going to end up with it since they both want it, LOL.
Setting aside the cars value, it will be around for some time to come.
