Forgotten Performers

I was doing some thinking and playing around on the net and came across a nice 1995 Corvette for sale. I got to thinking wow these are so cheap, but why? I looked up the performance specs and I was somewhat surprised at how well they actually perform and how few I see on the road. Someone would rather spend $7,000 on other cars before even looking at this one...

Here are the specs:

0-60: 5.7 Sec
1/4 Mile: 14.1 Sec
Braking: 122ft
Lateral G (200ft): .87G
HP: 300
TQ: 330
Engine: 5.7L LT1
Transmission: 6sp Manual or Auto


Sure, it looks a little too 90210 for a lot of people. But how do we ignore that and look at what matters? This car is reliable, it has a solid powerplant, handles well and is CHEAP as hell...

What other cars do you think are now under the radar? Post pictures, specs, and whatever else you think is important.
gentle now the tender breeze blows, whispers through my Gran Torino, whistling another tired song, engine humms and bitter dreams grow, heart locked in a Gran Torino, it beats a lonely rhythm all night long
