    Help! Reindexing Windows

    I recently changed the battery on my 2016 vert (a whole other story). I've got all my setting back but I can't get the windows to reindex (goes down about 1/8 inch when you open and close the doors). The procedure I have is to just put the ignition in the 'on' position. Put down the drivers...

    Key Fob Problems

    I have a 2016 and run into my first problem. Suddenly the remote key fobs are not being recognized. Car will start if I put the fob into the pocket on the steering column. All other functions seem to work (door locks, etc.) Everything worked fine 2 days ago. I have the problem with both...

    A reintroduction - sort of

    I bought my first Corvette, a red/red 1988 in Oct 2001. I joined CAC shortly. I learned a lot of things about my car and had many wonderful people help me with problems along the way. When I was working I had many "opportunities" to frequently check CAC to keep up with everyone and swap...

    1988 Corvette For Sale

    I'm going to pull the plug and get a C7 so I am putting up my 1988 red/red Corvette. I am the 4th owner and it has 67XXX original miles. It's about 90-95% original. I replaced the exhaust system shortly after getting it and maybe some other minor items. Less than 1000 miles on new tires. I...

    Tire Recommendation

    First off I'm sorry I haven't been around here in a long time. When I worked I had an office job so I was able to check CAC several times a day. Now that I'm retired I avoid computers and have many activities and grandkids to fill my days. I'm way busier than I ever thought I would be. That...

    Help! Another headlight question

    First off I apologize for not being on here much. When I was working I had an office job and had plenty of time to keep up with all the CAC happenings. Since I retired about 18 months ago I'm way to busy with other things to spend much time on a computer. I HIGHLY recommend retirement but...

    Raffle Winner at NCM

    First off I apologize for not being on CAC much. Who know retirement would keep me so busy? Anyway I'm very happy and busy and thoroughly enjoying retirement. Anyway I thought I would tell you a story about one of our club members. Jerry was an early Corvette racer and there are some rumors...

    Question: Any Portable Generator Recommendations

    First off, I haven't been on here for a while. Retired at the beginning of the year and have been busier than heck with family and things around the house. I thought I'd have more time but working on the house and family seems to eat up all my time. I need to go back to work so I have more...

    Pay Fines Based On Your Ability

    Those of us in the St. Louis area are still being inundated daily with the fall out of the Michael Brown shooting. There is a big push now to erase the records of any "peaceful" protester who was arrested. We still have to deal with daily protests blocking streets and buildings in downtown St...

    Not really leaving but ...

    I am retiring next week and probably won't be checking CAC as much. Since I bought my 1988 about 13 years ago, one of the first things I do when I get to work is check CAC. I don't post much but do check it every day to gain all the knowledge that is available from everyone here. Little did I...

    What Do You Think Of This Patriotic Vette?

    At our annual club picnic this past Saturday one of our members, a disabled Marine from the Viet Nam War, showed up in his usually white 64 with this patriotic display. It's not a paint job but a wrap so it can be removed if he wants. He said he wanted to do this for several years. He usually...

    Grandpa (Again)

    On Monday I became a grandpa again for the second and third time. Our daughter gave birth to twins, Parker Andrew and Avery Kate. Yeah I know, nobody had a Timmy, Tommy or Jane anymore. Mom and kids are doing fine. She had a really rough time the last few months so luckily Grandma is close...

    Quick Jokes

    Got these from a friend and some are pretty good. Ron "Baldie88" I heard a rumor that they're giving away manure at my local fair, so I went down there to check, it was bullshit. Don't trust atoms, they make up everything! Biologists have discovered they can stop frogs dying by removing...

    Help! Need Help With A Targa Top Trim

    Our club did a Veterans Day parade on Saturday and as I was taking the targa top off my 88 I noticed the front trim seems to be separating from the glass. The top has no leaks for squeaks. The trim is only coming off the front and not the side. Is this just trim or is this the part of the...

    Front Plates for the C7

    I was at the NCM for the Labor Day event this past weekend. Kirk Bennion's Night Race Blue had what might be the first front license plate bracket for the C7. I've attached a couple of pictures of it to this thread. It definitely looks better than what the C6's have which looks like an...

    Hatch Ajar Switch

    Anyone have any issues with the hatch ajar switch? I did a search and didn't find much information. My switch suddenly doesn't seem to be working. Light on the DIC showing "hatch ajar" is lit and the lights in the hatch stay on all the time. I'm tired of pulling the fuse for the courtesy...

    First 63's

    I got this email from a club member. He used to be one of those folks who happen to get some parts out the back door of the Corvette plant when it was here in St. Louis. There are a couple of interesting links in the email so I hope you enjoy. Here is the email: At the end of this video it...

    Question: Help Identify This Hubcap

    OK, I'm generally on the C4 section so please bear with me. My son-in-law enjoys finding unique gifts for me. At Christmas he gave me a hubcap which to me looks like it is from maybe a 58 or so. I am posting several pictures to help identify it. What is puzzling is that it is bronze or...

    When Was The Last Time You Opened The Door With A Key

    Just something I picked up on another forum. A guy locked his car and when he went to get back in, using the fob, the fob battery had died. No problem, he has a key. Unfortunately the key cylinder was bad and the key wouldn't work, even though it worked in the ignition. I'll admit I would have...

    Pay It Forward - Brochures

    OK I generally hang out in the C4 section but our club sponsor gave me two (2) 2011 Corvette factory brochures. They are roughly 9 X 12. Would be a good addition to anyone that has a 2011. So in thanks for all the help I've gotten on CAC, the first two who respond to this thread and send me a...
