    CE Stripes gone SE Stripes going on

    I put white CE stripes on my new torch red 2004 after I had the car about 90 days; they got lots of comments and I loved the way they looked. Despite participation in numerous regional Vette shows and rallys, including big ones with thousands of Vettes, I never saw another car like mine. Five...

    NEED HELP, Removing Vinyl Stripes

    I bought one of those "anniversary" striping kits from a vendor on one of the Corvette forums in September 2004. This is the "decal" type that you just wet, place on car, smooth out the wrinkes and bubbles and then let dry. They are great for about 3 years or so, then they start to shrink...

    Car Trailer

    I am sick and tired of detailing my car before a show, then having to try to detail it again after I drive it to a show. Most of the time there is no access to wash facilities and sometimes no shade, much less adequate time. In short, I am in the market for a trailer. Here's what I see. A...

    Kool Mats now In

    Well I finally got both the front and back sets in from WCC and I had the Vette mechanic at our dealership install them. There is a small improvement in sound deadening, but I expected a lot more for the almost $2,000 I spent. At the same time I made this mod, I had a Rhino liner put in my...

    Installed Silverstar headlights

    About two weeks ago I noticed my lights wren't as bright as I would like at night so I put in a set of Sylvania Silverstar headlights in my 2005 Tahoe. To put in all four bulbs took about 3 minutes and no tools were needed. Anyway, that was so fast and easy I got the bright idea to do the...

    Got a notice on my 2004 last Friday in the mail and the dealership service writer said to bring it straight in as it was a front end suspension/steering required parts change and not really safe to drive. He printed out about 20 pages of instructions and parts lists for the recall and said it...

    C-5 LeMans Pace Car at Barrett Jackson

    The 2003 C5 LeMans Pace Car went for $47,500 as I recall at the Palm Beach auction. But, most of the muscle cars were off about 50% in price from the last Scottsdale auction. Is the Scottsdale money just looser or is the market for muscle cars (comprised mainly of old guys who couldn't afford...

    If you get to go to the April C5 homecoming in Bowling Green and see a 2004 Targa in Torch Red with white CE stripes and loud GHLs - its probably me. Hopefully, I will have my new vanity plates before then - ROCNROL. At the Eureka Springs rally there must have been 200 Torch Red C5s, but only...
