Some C4's are antique's by the yrs and in a few all wil be. The early cars all have a name for them. 53-62 are called Straight Axles, 63-67 are called Mid Years, and the 68-82 are called Sharks. So as the C$'s are getting older what will they be called or what do we need to start calling them. Any ideas???? or am I :crazy:

I dunno, but it needs to incorporate the most distinguishing feature: the clamshell hood.

I figure since the early C4s had a full digital dashboards, we could call them - "digital corvettes".

I know it's a bit of a stretch, but it's got a catchy ring to it and there'd certainly be no confusion.

:lookinup: :laughing:

you may think that I am crazy but I have always thought they looked like a wedge so we could come up with a name that somehow incorporated the word wedge.

The was a huge thread/topic a few years back. There was a poll and everything but it never went anywhere and we just kept calling them C-4's:laughing: I think that is what they will stay too with the newer generations being along the same C theme.

As much as I think the hood is cool, I really don't want my car known as a clamshell. Maybe it's not so bad compared to wedgie!:laughing:

go with the 'plastic explosive'. No one wants to think they have a digital clam
