    Convertable Top

    In a catalog saw where an air type pillow could be used when the top is down to help prevent damage to the rear window so it does not crease. Has anyone had a problem with this happening? Chuck

    Gas Gauge

    Sunday I hooked up the batteryon the blue beast because I just needed to hear her roar. She started fairly easy with some smoke but not bad and I was very happy to park my butt behind the steering wheel. When I put her away last November there was a 1/2 tank of gas laced with some stabilizer...

    Fuse Block Problem

    When I went to get my Vette out this spring none of my dash gagues worked and I pulled the fuse , it was OK but upon putting it back in the gagues worked. I came to the conclusion that the oxidation on the stabs was the problem. The same held true for the choke fuse, the choke light went out...

    I had the front suspension replaced and it is such a pleasure to drive the blue beauty, not that it wasn't before but it sure is different. Before it was like driving a boat on rough water, always steering to keep her straight but now she is going right down the middle of the road. WOW I'm a...
