    1985 Window Problem

    The passenger side window on my 1985 will raise about only 1/3 of the way. I was able to grab the glass and slide it to the raised position, but when released it slides back to the 1/3 raised position. I am able to lower it with the switch but raise it about only 1/3 of the way. Any repair...

    Thinking about Leaving the Vette World

    Turned 75 last month and still enjoy driving my '85 C-4 with 120k miles on it. I intentionally limit the extent of maintenance that I do [impaired vision in right eye], but just replaced the door panel on the passenger side. Always amazes me the number of people who stop to comment on the...

    Question: C4 Alarm Problem

    On occasion, the alarm will sound on my '85 after pressing the locking button on the inside of the door and then closing the door.

    Question: C4 Backup Lamp Lens

    Having more time due to retirement, I'm gradually restoring/replacing various components on my 85 Coupe. Does anyone know if the lens on the backup lamps can be cleaned? The original lens are dark and sooty looking as if exhaust has accumulated on the inside surface of the lens. Dennis R.

    Locking Lug Nut Cap

    I'm in need of one black plastic cap for a locking lug nut on an '85 C-4. Thus far I've only been able to locate caps for the non-locking lug nuts.

    1985 New Tires

    It's time to replace the Goodyear GT+4 tires on my 1985 coupe. As it has been many years since I purchased the last tires, any recommendations would be much appreciated. I would like to soften the ride a bit and minimize noise on the highway. I'm using the original rims. Thanks for your help!
