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...
Good morning all
I have an 87 Vette coupe, 4+3 tranny.
I have been driving her daily since my other day car is out of commission. Now my dilmena is this.
When I shift thru the gears and go into 4th Overdrive. I need to be over 56mph or it bucks and moans like I was trying to take off from a...
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)...

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...
I have noticed that the oil pressure on my '87 is constantly at 80psi. (digital dashboard display)
While I should be happy, I have some serious doubts this is the real OP.
Has anyone seen this situation before and whats the likely culprit.
Otherwise the car runs great. No noise and normal oil...
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...
I had asked for some help with looking for a 88-96 Vette, and
I would like to thank the guys that answered me. I am now the proud owner of 1987 coupe.
