Good Evening CGs!

As you are all aware, I lost my 89 last month. After a short search and a few WTB ads placed on the internet a gentleman on CF reached out to me. As a result I am the proud new owner of this beautiful electron blue metallic 2002 convertible. The previous owner was extremely meticulous and the car is magnificent in person, the pictures don't do it justice. After a 9 hour round trip driving (almost 12 total) it's back home.

The mods include:

Magnusson supercharger (polished and intercooled MP-122)
Dynatech 1-3/4" Stainless headers
Corsa tigershark exhaust
Dewitt's radiator and fans
Engine Power Systems PD cam. 214 / 230 .600/.604 117LSA
BTR springs
Comp rocker trunions
Upgraded valve train
Tigershark front & rear bumpers
Aftermarket hood
Custom euro lights
Chrome centennial cup rims
Tons of cosmetic upgrades
(More that I'm forgetting)

The car is roughly 600 hp with the upgrades and drives like stock until you get on it. It was built to be a reliable daily driver and it certainly is. Just a hair over 90,000 miles and you'd never know it. I have a few small plans for it so I'll keep everyone posted.

Looks great, Matt. We remain utterly sold on our C5 convertible—Chevrolet really nailled that design.

Thanks again, guys.

Tommy you're supposed to be thinning the herd. Or go buy a C5. Basically the same thing.

Ya Matt. Thinning the herd and maintaining some quality rides. I would not be opposed to keeping the 87 911 though I like my 83 better for driving, sell the C-4's and 928 and pick up a late model Corvette. But when I drive the C4 Corvettes I fall in love with the old school handling all over again. I cut my teeth on muscle cars.

Nothing wrong with that, Tommy. I wouldn't be surprised if I picked up another C4 one day.

Thanks! I remember your c5 also had a tiger shark bumper. I didn't care for them that much from pictures but once I saw it in person I loved it.
