    White smoke

    If it's really white and does not go away and there's a sweet smell then you probably have a blown head gasket.....sorry to say.

    Help please - looking at 1st Corvette

    RUN, don't walk away unless you have unlimited funds and or are experienced in engine, trans, suspension, frame, fiberglass repair, and painting just to name a few areas this car probably needs attention to. I've read the smartest thing to do when buying a used car (and a 30 yr one at that) is...

    Hot Air At Feet

    Thanks for the kind words Chris, and yes with the air on it does get frosty inside. I agree, everything has to be there and function properly for the interior to be comfortable. I also agree the earlier cars have a heat problem. A friend has a 69 and it is hotter than, well you know, with...

    Hot Air At Feet

    I don't know but when I push my function control (air, vent, heat) all the way to the left "off" the blower fan stops and I get no air flow through any vent. With the temp function control also pushed to the left "cold" I don't get hot air from my vents (when in vent mode) as this turns off the...

    Mounted Seat Covers

    There are two sets of clips along each side of the seat back. You must squeeze the cushion together (like an accordion) to release it from the clips and to reinstall.. The seat bottom has similar clips but I don't recall where they are located. Hope this helps.

    Alloy Wheel Plastic coating

    Mid America sells a clear coat removal kit for $39.95, item # 17748. Tel # 800-500-8388. I used 00 steel wool and a heavy duty wheel polish to remove the clear coat from my wheels because the CE wheels are also painted and I did not want to disturb that part of the wheel.

    Delco Battery

    I checked with all the above re-manufactures of batteries as well as Delco and they all said the same thing. The Freedom II battery is not being made at this time, maybe in the near future but they need more demand for them. I wanted one as I'm having my 82 flight judged this year. I had to...

    82 vette back drop

    I don't know, mine doesn't really squat much at all. I have the optional FE7 suspension which might explain it especially if you have the glass mono rear leaf spring which might cause more squat on take off.

    what rpm is an 82 supposed to idle at

    When cold mine idles at or above 1000 rpm, but once warm it idles at a rock steady 500 rpm.
