After dreaming corvettes for a long time, I had the luck to buy a '90 red-red C4 ZR1, with less than 20k miles in late 2015. I must say, I live in the mountains, it is not rocket-fast compared to modern performance (mainly due to too long stock gears), however I completely love it, for many reasons, and when I drive it, half of the people turn the head to see what car is it (consider I am in Europe where Vettes are not that common to see).
I keep my ZR1 like a model car for kids, I hand wash and polish it after every ride, and I enjoy it so much the few times I drive it!
I am not rich to afford modern supercars, and with the time I matured more and more the belief that one should really buy cars to enjoy them, have fun and happyness when driving, not for investment - at least for those who don’t have so much money to not care how much they spend for a car. Buy cars as investment is too risky also for expert people, and the risk is that you buy some compromise car just because you believe it will gain more value, and then you wait and wait… without reaching the real reason of collectible cars… ENJOYMENT and HAPPYNESS!
