Hello everyone. Just wanted to let you folks know how excited I am to have traded in my '84 for an '89 recently & absolutely love it. Looking forward to another fun summer. Best wishes to all & happy riding.

Nice.
1989 is supposed to be the Fastest Bone stock L98 Tuned Port Hot Wire Mass Air Corvette of all.
A few guys claimed Mid 13's 1/4 mile at track on street M+S Tires.

Thanks. Not so good with pics. A bit behind in the times. Old school. Took forever just to do my avatar. I'll see if I can get a pro to help me out.
I have to say that this '89 is quite a bit faster than my '84 was. Even though we're only talking about an increase of 35 hp & 55 torque this thing moves. Very crisp, solid & responsive. I spent a lot of time researching the early C4's because I'm in-love with the body style. It would appear that the '89 was the last year of the early C4 body style & yes matched with the refined L98 engine & body components it seemed like the best bang for the buck.

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit
