    Help from Convertible owners

    I got my parts in and have started the project of converting my 78 to vert. I have tried searching for old threads but most of the pics don't come up any more. Can I get some pics of inside the rear compartment on some convertibles so that I can compare as I try to install these parts and...

    I am looking for a convertible frame in usable condition. Doesn't have to be original or show quality. Anyone have one or know a good place to look for one? Bought a hardtop so search has been put off on the frame for now.

    78 convertible conversion project

    I got carried away in buying new interior parts for my 78 and got a wild hair to research convertible conversions. I am ordering most of the parts that I need tomorrow. Still need to find either a frame for the top and new top or a hard top. Saw one frame on ebay but not sure how good the...

    Disappearing car door

    A friend sent me this link. It's a pretty cool door too bad it can't really be used on the vette since the door is so long when you open it. Just thought you guys would enjoy seeing it. A design like that if it were possible would eliminate burns from sidepipes LOL...

    New seats in C3

    I have a 78 and the seats came with the cloth enlay. I really like them because it is so much cooler sitting on in the Summer. I can't find anyone that has replacement covers for them. It is either vinyl, leather-like or leather. I figure I'd have to go to an upholstery shop and have them...

    LS1 vs zz4 or 383

    Got a question for the guys who have made the swaps. I'm still deciding on what engine I am going to go to in my 78. I want alot more HP than I have right now. Any of these will provide it. I also want fuel economy. I know that most of that will depend on the rear end and an overdrive which...

    78 rear end

    Ok, this has probably been answered in the past but I'll ask anyway. I have a 78 with stock 3.73 rear end. I am going to do an engine and transmission swap sometime in the near future. I am probably going to go with a 6 sp. tranny for the fuel economy. The engine, I still haven't decided on...
