Question Is there a Corvette worst and best list?

I'm sure there must be some sort of list that shows which year Corvette had the highest warranty issues. Or consumer feed back rating? I would like to see which got the best and which got the worst?

Consumer reports I believe.

Default worst Looking

I volunteer the 1979 with its awful add-ons as the fugliest. I believe the 1957 was the best ever and this cannot be judged by warranty. It and the 1956 had the best look plus the '57 added 4 speed, posi, F.I., 283, etc. I love the '63's split window and look forward to the C7 getting it back.

Default Cfi

Because of Cross Fire Injection? The original FI actually performed even worse, didn't it?

The '84 was LOADED with bugs, glitches and problems. Worst Corvette ever IMO. It wasn't the Crossfire. It was everything else!

I have an '82. First year of the Crossfire. It is a great and reliable car with virtually no engine related problems. Very reliable and great fuel economy.

The only problem with CFI was owners (and mechanics) who didn't know how to tune them. Therefore it was deemed a failure. They were wrong. Excellent engine.

Default '82 had style

The Coke-bottle-shaped 1980 thru 1982 models had real style. Today, from the side, the rear looks too small top to bottom but they still look good to me.

I'll probably never sell my '82! And to be honest... it gets more looks than the brand new Grand Sport!

I'll nominate the '74 model which was my first. I bought it new. Smog clogged, Low compression I believe 8.5:1, Slow!

75... I believe it had the Chevette steering wheel aside from being a poor performer.
