    The CATS are gone

    All, Happy New year. I have been struggling with my 87 coupe for years, and thinking it was just me not knowing how to drive a performance vehicle. It was hell for me to pull away from a light. Either I'd have to rev her up and slip the clutch to take off, or it would stall out. The rev up...

    87 running very bad

    Hi all. I had to take the '87 on Tuesday to a funeral, and it rained and snowed and froze. It was a very slow drive for 3 1l2 hours at about 40mph tops due to the weather. The ride home was much better at 75+ though. She ran well in both directions, except I noticed a bit of bucking in 7th (4+3)...

    Throttle Cable Mystery

    I changed the throttle cable on my 1987 coupe. It was not to difficult and acceration is now wondeful. My question is this. When I removed the old cable through the firewall, there is one stud that comes into the passenger compartment, attached to the mounting plate. I removed the nut like a...

    MD Vette owners

    I was un-happily stuck in the 301 baybridge traffic on Sunday. As the traffic neared the bridge there were 3 troopers sitting and obviously not making any money on speeding tickets. As I went past one, I noticed he stopped the car behind me and got in behind me. At 5mph I was not too worried...
