I think it's a little expensive for what it is.....JMHO.Embarrassed  You can get a C5 which Karen would like even better for a little more and probably less milage - just got to look around.Wink

I don't know where they get the idea that almost 88k miles is low miles, even for a 94.  I think the price is a little high, but she sure is a sweet looking color combo.  If I were you two, I'd keep shoping for that right Vette at the right price.

That's less than 5K per year. Seems low enough to me, assuming the maintenance has been performed on time.

if you are looking for a second vette i would be looking into a C5 over a C4 it is just a better vehicle for the dollars spent, it is just my 2 cents worth. buy what ya want drive what ya buy. if you get a vert make sure it comes with raccoon protection

Well, that depend on how you define all! LOL  Yah I should not be looking at Vettes. But, here's the deal...  My son has his permit and is taking driver's ed right now.  I know he'll want to go to DMV on his birthday to get his license.  I want to get a "new" daily driver before he gets his license so that he can drive the mom mobile (my current daily driver).  I'll probably end up with something practical (e.g., newer Toyota that gets good gas mileage) but I sure would love to get a Vette daily driver. 

I agree that the price is too high on this car but I figure that's just the starting point for negotiations.  I would rather have a C5 but I just don't see the screaming deals...where do you find them?  I do love the colors on that car!!!

Karen, a C5 will get 30 or more MPG, depending on how you drive it....can't keep your foot in it all the time. LOL  If you are lookin', try your local Vette Club (if your in one) and see if a member has a C5 for sale at a resonable price.  When I found mine, I just Googled a search of car dealers within so many miles from my house......and I found a very good deal.  Sometimes your vette club will have a special deal with a Chevy Dealer and they will give you a good discount on a used Vette or a new Vette.  Hope this helps.  Go for the C5, they are more "dependable" AND get better gas milage than the C4!Thumbs%20Up  The only weird thing is the butt crack hood....Rolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20LaughingRolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing

He's funny isn't he???? 

I don't think I can swing a C5 given all the boat costs right now.  What is a "good deal" for a C5? I'm thinking I'll have to go for a cheaper car.  A C4 is probably more likely (if I get a Vette).  Mikey doesn't want me to get any car so anything will be an up hill battle. 

We were at a show & shine today at Suburban Auto Group.  They had a nice looking 2003 convertible, automatic, about 16,000 miles.  They're asking $35,995.  That's too much for me right now.  I gave him my # in case he comes across any screaming deals (yah, right). 

So let's hear from you C4 owners...what do you like/don't like about them?

A 1999 to 2001 .......40 some thousand miles for about 18 to 21 thousand dollars. I've been looking (sort of) and can't remember where but I found an original owner 01 with 61M miles for 19,500 with all service records. My wife said maybe in the fall.Censored
 
Just have patience, patience, and more patience and stick to your price. They are out there and never fall in love at first sight if the price is not right !!
 
How about a 2000 with 96,000 miles on the clock,  original owner/90 %highway miles with impecable service records for $14,000
 
These are deals i've found recently but wife says I gotta finish my 78 first...okay, i'll buy that because I know when I get ready, there will be other deals pop up.
 
You have to be relentless in your search and try to stay within a couple hundred miles of your home. That way you will be able to see it, smell it, drive it. You'll be able to see the persons house and how neat they live and be able to inspect their intelligence as well as their car.
 
Remember, the C5's are very well built cars. They are tough machines and will hold up to moderate abuse with little or no effect if they're taken care of.  If you shop carefully you can pick-up a nice high mileage Vette for a very reasonable price.

I agree with most of the above.
The C5 is a much better value.
That C4 looks nice, but I have seen them like that for less than $10K.
A 97 - 01 would make a great daily driver.
Keep looking. There is no pressure.

   Micki , I need to take driving lessons from you, although my c5 gets real good gas mileage , it`s not 30mpg.
  I agree on the c5 vs. c4 it`s a far superior car. the price range qouted above seems acurate too, however, add 5K for a vert. good luck
