My son-in-law used to own either a ‘93 or ‘94. Same color. He bought it in 2011ish with 100+ miles on it.

Technology and performance have changed so much!

13.7 quarter seems slow
1995 doesn't seem like that long ago. Does it? I mean the advancements from then to now are impressive/unbelievable.

I was driving my first ride in HS at this point, a 95 Tacoma lmao. Extended cab Cobalt Blue. It was tits.

12.8-12.9 @ 112-113 is what several owners have run stock.

This feels very weird to say this, but I am actually finding the C4 style strangely good looking. Particularly the ZR1 and Grand Sport variants.
My favorite, at the time, was the Grand Sport model. I would imagine that engine maintenance/repairs are expensive on the ZR-1.

That was DAMN fast back then... and still is VERY impressive.

Very cool.
The later LT5's laid down ~350rwhp. There were so few sold however, making the sample size very small.

A good set of modern day tires should put a well driven one comfortably in the mid 12's at that power and weight (3,500#)
