1999 C5 RED
Just an introduction to the site to let you know where I am coming from. My 85 year old dad passed away from Covid-19 related illness and he had an 1999 C5 with 149,000 miles on it. It was kept in the garage and has some issues that I am working on to fix. Torque tube issue that I will deal with this week, just trying to find the right mechanic. We use to golf and jab at each other because he raised me to be a Ford Mustang guy then he switched years ago to the C5. Anyway, I'm a C5 guy now. I'll restore the vehicle and drive it every once in a while, keeping it pristine as I can always remembering my dad. Looking forward to perusing the site for ideas and help so... Thanks for taking the time out to read.

Welcome aboard. The C5 is a great platform. I'm sure you'll do your dad proud.
