    That's an interesting thread on TTAC.

    I wish there was a site dedicated to reviewing used cars from different eras. I think you could probably generate an audience discussing what you could get in a certain genre.

    People looking for a reliable daily commuter might like to read an honest review of, say, a 1991 Celica rather than a 2009 Corolla.

    There's a guy down here with one of those (well just a plain zr-1) but a 94 I think. He's got a built motor and claimed to get the last set of ligenfelter cams...car makes about mid 500's on pump. That lt5 is a nasty sounding motor.

    these cars were amazing when new... I got to drive a 1993 Anniversary Edition LPE ZR1 back when it was new... it was Ruby Red Metallic and the guy that ordered it was generous enough to let a few of us drive the monster... it was kind of hard to start at first, but once it was up and running, it idled amazingly well and you didn't need to do much to make the rear tires turn into a fine black powder.

    the first ZR1 that I ever drove was a 1993 black one that we did a dealer trade for in 1992... I'm sure the speedo wasn't accurate, but when it got to 160mph, I was definitely in love

    I dont ever remember hearing about the serpentine belt problem... I believe some of the racer types went with a 5mm or 10mm smaller belt, so maybe that's why?

    ok I was wrong about the pirate cars, they kept the stock power band for the most part but bumped it by about 300 rpm....not sure where I got my numbers but they were dead wrong.

    Nice to see a review about a C4 that doesn't rip it to shreds over mundane crap. :cool:
