Purely by coincidence, this week’s blog theme seems to be 1984 after Tuesday’s ’84 Starlet and now a 1984 Chevrolet Corvette. One thing’s for sure, if Big Brother drove one of these cars it would most likely be the Vette. And it’s for sale right now.
The eighties were the era of shoulder pads, Ocean Pacific tank tops, poodle hair and digital dashboards and the fourth generation C4 Corvette fits in with this era perfectly. It couldn’t be any more eighties if it tried. It wouldn’t surprise me if the stereo only played ‘Hot for Teacher’ by Van Halen on repeat and, frankly, it should be compulsory to fill your garage with dry ice before opening the door and slowly driving out every time you go for a drive. It’s a car that oozes drama, like an episode of ‘Falcon Crest’, which is not to say its more style over substance, after all the C4 has a 350ci V8 engine under that huge bonnet. It’s no Ferrari but driving fast will only cause you to spill Jolt Cola onto your acid wash jeansanyway. Still, it’ll get up and go when it needs to.
This 1984 Corvette is as American as Apple pie and as 1980s as MC Hammer pants. And it’s for sale right now at what looks to be a 1980s price. It will be auctioned if it doesn’t sell at the very reasonable Buy Now price of just $21300 but if I were you I wouldn’t wait for the auction or you could miss out. Poison’s ‘Look what the cat dragged in’ just won’t sound the same in your 2004 Honda Accord…
