$4,000 might get you a nice V6 RS convertible. A good condition 305TBI convertible starts in the $5,000-6,000 range. The Z28's and IROC-Z's fetch a lot more than that. For instance, when I got my car it had 32,000 miles on it and it was $12,000. That was about 5 yrs ago, and the prices have actually gone up on nice convertibles since then, so my car with the same mileage now would be about $13,000. I've been offered $10,000 for the car and it's got a few dings here and there and some mild clear coat peeling along the ground effects. It's not perfect but it's nice. You'd be suprised how much money you're going to spend if you want a nice vert.
