    So last night I went out into the dark garage started the engine and immediately saw the arching from the number 5 plug wire which had come off the spark plug. Problem solved. Thanks again guys.

    Clicking coming from distributor

    The other day I noticed a "clicking" sound almost like arcing coming from the distributor. The engine is running fine. The cap and rotor are less than a year old but I replaced the rotor anyway. Any ideas?

    1979-80 Corvette

    I believe I have asked this question before but it's been awhile so I'll ask again. I have a 1980 Corvette with a 1979 front clip. Does anyone know if Chevy ever built any Corvettes like this? I have tried numerous times to trace previous owners but have not had any luck. Thanks.

    Help! 1979-80 Corvette

    Does anyone know of any way to trace the history of a 1980 Corvette VIN? I was at a car show last month when a guy came up to me and asked when I had changed the front clip of my 1980 Corvette. Seems somewhere down the line someone had changed the front clip to that of one from 1979. I...

    Question: 1980 Corvette spare tire.

    I purchased a 1980 Corvette last summer (2015). It does not have a spare tire. From my research I have found the original was a P195/80D15 which is impossible to locate. Any suggestions as to what I can use as a replacement for the upcoming summer?

    Question: Corvette seats

    I am looking to replace the seats (there's a suprise) in my 1980 Corvette. I have been researching mounted seat covers and think that might be the way to go. I have a few questions. 1. I have 2' bolsters now. Will a 4" work in the existing seats? 2. Are the mounted seat covers a good choice...
