    Help! 2001 Z06

    Hi! I am a C-1 owner that might be in the market for a newer Corvette. I just looked at a 2001 ZO6 with about 26,000 miles. The car is very clean in side and out, but there seemed to be an engine knock or noise. The owner who is the second owner stated that the noise has always been there...

    Selling my 1963 SWC

    I have been looking for a solid axle restoration project for over a year and I have not found the car I would like to restore. The prices for all Corvettes especially matching number cars seem to be steadily on the rise and I most likely will need to pay more than I would like. I am thinking of...

    First Drive in the 1963 SWC

    Took the 63 out for a short test drive this evening after 1 1/2 years of restoration. Everything went well for the first drive, but it would not start after setting for about 1/2 hour. I believe that I burnt the points. I am using an original .3-OHM Delco resistor. I had the same problem with...
