Got a vette

Bought that 1994 LT1 vette I mentioned in another post. It is just reliable enough for a daily driver and needs just enough minor work to keep me happy.

I was just thinking about a Vette for a daily driver. Can I ask what you paid for it? I always hear about people getting deals.

Any Pics?
The C4 vettes make good daily drivers, Ive driven mine all over the place, with the only problems being a master cylinder going out, and the power steering pump goin out.
Only real complaints I have about it is that it doesn't have alot of room in it, and the Corvette Tax on parts can get you if you don't shop around.

The corvette tax is the higher priced parts because they fit a corvette.
Like say, a muffler for a "corvette" in a corvette catalog costs $170 a peice, while you can go to summit or jegs and get a muffler equally as good for $70 a peice.
Most of the its just bull crap how much more some of the parts cost.

It is driving great. I have had it a week now, but have worked almost every day so I haven't had much fun time for driving. But I am supposed to be off monday tuesday this coming week and I plan to take a short trip.

I paid 9500 for it.
