It didn't get the "King of the Hill" nickname until the 405 HP version came out in '93.

Dude that guy is gonna break a tranny shifting like that! Christ he's hard on that thing. And you'd think for someone demonstrating "how it's done", he'd at least hold the shifter correctly while throwing the gears around.. lol

Man, I remember when those came out I thought I was in love. That video just ruined it for me.

Holy shit that guy is raping the transmission. I am pretty sure that is about as hard as he could have possibly thrown it into 2nd any harder. The car is lucky to last through too many of those test drives.....damn.

I'd love to have a 1990. Only year to have the old front bumper.

The corvette will and always will be the best sports car for the money IMO. I have aways loved them ever since my dad had his 89.

Just seen the video and his shifting isn't bad at all just hard shifting look at his times for the 1/4 thats amazing for a 92. Of course several runs like that will f it up but who cares its not his car lol.
