    I have often wondered why the battery on C3's ( maybe not all) was placed behind the drivers side seat versus the passengers side. Given the choice, the right side would seem to be the obvious one. Any thoughts?

    Ride height thoughts

    I have been reading a lot of questions about uneven rear ride heights on C3s. Its hard to believe that some sort of adjustable device for the spring bolts has not been thought of.

    My 71,LT1 has a radiator with the a verticle expansion tank on the right side, it also has the fender mounted aluminum expansion tank with connecting heater hoses. The aluminum tank seems redundant. Is this correct? Should I remove the aluminum tank?
