    Question: Has anyone noted the styling similarities between C7 and F12?

    Forgive me if this has been previously discussed, but my eyes see a lot of this Ferrari in the C7. Note the snake eyes, hood vent, ducktail, roof and side window lines, rear window treatment and especially the side coves ... and front-mounted engine. I could be off the mark, but didn't the F12...

    Question: 4L60E interchange compatibility

    I have a '95 coupe with a whining 4L60E transmission. I have a good used 4L60E liberated from a 1997 Camaro Z-28 that threw a rod. My plan is to swap tailshafts on the two and stick the good one in the 'Vette. Then I start hearing from some shade tree mechanics that there will be issues with...

    Question: I have a '95 Coupe with a whining transmission ...

    ... and a friend gave me a good, used 4L60E from a '97 Camaro Z28 that threw a rod. So, my question is whether or not this is a bolt-in swap once I put on the Corvette tailshaft, dipstick tube, cooling lines and possibly the shift lever. The electronic shift connector looks the same on the...

    WoooHooo! MVP 'Vette!

    How about that one-off, bad ass C6 ragtop they gave to Manning as the Super Bowl MVP? I bet that has some awesome collector value.

    I will trade a caricature of your Corvette ...

    ... for a used '84 instument cluster. All I need is the tach, so it doesn't have to be a gem. Check my avatar for an example of my cartooning skills.

    Trophy '84

    I know '84s haven't gotten much respect over the years, but I earned four trophies at car shows with mine over the course of this summer. It's all original and has just 56,000 miles on it, so I detailed the crap out of it when I first bought it and it looks like a new car. No, no Best in Show...

    Z-51 suspension

    My '84 rides like a Harley hardtail. How can I tell if I have the Z-51 suspension package that's legendary for it's bad ride?:confused

    Too Good To Be True

    I know '84s are the least collectible of the C4s, but when I came across a nice red '84 Coupe with only 54,000 miles on it ... for just $5,500.00 ... I jumped on the deal. The car is a virtual time capsule, with everything stock and in miraculous conditiuon. I've had it about two weeks now...

    The Media finally gets it right

    Anyone notice the story about America losing it's favorite cars on the MSNBC home page? They rated Corvette as the A-Number-One all time favorite and most loved of them all. Well ..... DUH!

    95 Auto trans hums

    My Sweetie's '95 coupe has a hum in the auto trans in every gear except park and neutral. I serviced the trans with new filter, gasket and cherry juice and there was no residue of any kind in the pan ... no metal shavings, clutch surface or abrasives at all. The trans still hums and she said...

    Lady in Distress

    I need some ideas to help a sweet lady with big financial problems. Her hubby died of cancer two years ago without insurance or survivor benefits, but he had lots of big toys. So she's been selling power boats, travel trailers, pickup trucks, tools, hot rods and everything she could to pay off...

    Show me the way ....

    I have a very cherry box-stock '84 Coupe that is all original and has never been modified. The factory brochure (the one with the fold out included) shows a picture of the car with the fog lights on but the headlights are not rotated up. My car will not do this ... is that normal and how can I...
