1992 Chevrolet Corvette C4 Convertible

We bought our Black Rose roadster new in 1992. When we first saw the car on the showroom floor, we couldn't stop staring at it. (My wife Byllye's favorite color is purple.) Eventually, we decided to trade in our '79 L82 and drive the car home. "Rose" has been a big part of our family ever since. Her factory options include the FX3 Selective Ride and Handling suspension, the AQ9 Sport Seats, the G92 Performance Axle Ratio, the V56 Luggage Rack, and the UJ6 Low Tire Pressure Warning Indicator. I've added a Corsa exhaust, Hella headlamps, and a K&N air filter. She was featured, along with Byllye, in your Aug. '94 "Calling All Ladies" issue. She has only 27,700 miles and is as nice today as she was when we took her home that first night. She's fast and beautiful and still gets a lot of attention when she steps out.
