GENTLEMAN, i was talking to a vendor in dave county fl . called corvette generation looking for ome parts , the person wouldn't even help me out. he said the c4s are not worth anything and the buy them all day long for 500.00 to 2,000 he told me to get rid of it because the value will never come up not in 20 years from now. what the hellllllllllll.........so i got pissed and looked on hagerty car value chart. the c4 hit an all time high in 2010 since then it has dropped and still declining. a no1 car only is selling for 13,000 a 2 car is selling for 8,000 to 11,000.....they just go down from there. well i don't agree with any of this , why you may ask becaues the c4 will come on there own in 5 years from now...its like buying gold and silver it goes up and down all the time. gold right now is on a decline.... the colecter car market is on a downward slump .... so saying this i think i will keep my 84 and i know it will be worth more than now in 5 years or so...what are your opinions about this ...this is very inportant to us c4 owners....just a foot note mopars are on a verry fast decline this year hell they where on top of the food chain a couple of years ago....

I own my 90 model for the pure joy of the car itself. if it goes up in value that is great, but if it doesn't ... well that is ok too. cause it drives the same no matter what the value...

I'm watching program about whether the New York Times will fail. Not whether it's good or not but whether it is valued in the age of twitter. From Enron to banks, they can all fail. A C4 is a "has been" and now all the tech that was cutting edge is now just a problem to try to fix. The entire drive train is unique and obsolete. 9" Ford rears have been around forever for a reason. Dana 36's and 44's don't have any such reason. LS is the motor of choice in everything and C4's don't have one. I work on my C4 all the time and I like it the better than any other but I absolutely know most car people including other Vette guys won't give it a second look. Any piece of junk mid year will turn more heads than mine even though I know there's no comparison. If a C4 turns your crank, then the cheapness is an opportunity because they are really still very close in performance to the very latest if you work on them a little. The only delusion is to think you're ever going to have a collector piece. Even the old time classics came back to reality when the guys that "had to have them" all died. Same with any car. Get over it!

Who cares what its worth? Just drive the wheels off it and and like the zig zag man  tells us (ENJOY). Thats what Iam doing with my black 94 ragtop, When I do part with it it will be worth what ever the new proud owner will be willing to pay at that time. Just enjoy your C4.

I wouldn't get too bent out of shape by some D-bag  Wacko  making a negative comment.  I like my car, on the road or strip, and it'll be worth whatever somebody pays for it when I sell it.  In the meantime, I enjoy my ride, as you should.

I don't think anyone is saying they will loose their entire value, they just aren't going to increase as a "collector" like 65-67's. I expect them to a flat line between $5K & $10K and there's lots of reasonable cars there now. Seems like all new Vettes are devalued at $5K per year until they hit bottom. ZR-1's went the same way, so you got to wonder where the new ZL-1's will be in 10 years. I'll bet nobody will be spending $50K for one by then. You have to figure if there are new Vettes, hybrid is in their future. Won't that be a kick where it hurts.
