Hi All, I saw Yellowjacket's profile while researching rear-end tricks online and decided to join because we have similar looking cars and he's in the same part of the country. I've had my California Red '77 for 30 years and recently decided to use it as a good platform for a street performance build.  Started off with the 486hp/385 stroker and SS700 5-spd to work with my 3.70 diff.  Now I'm 2/3 done with my GT inspired suspension ideas, but I need all the tips I can get from the pros.  Not looking to reinvent any wheels on my own here.  Glad to be part of this group!

Welcome to the forum, Jack (yellowjacket) traded that car away a few yrs ago...not a good experience. Sound like your  car is pretty close to my 73. Post some pics when you get a chance.

  just joined, from honolulu hawaii. we have had a few C3's over the years, and currently have a 78 that we just put a 454 in last year, and a 79 that we are building a 350 for now.

everything from bare block assembly, trans, rear end, brakes, bushings, bodywork, etc.. is done at home by me, my wife or our 2 boys who just turned 18 last year. (i used to be a certified mechanic years ago, but made better money for less work tossing idiots out of bars).

i got a great if not weird sense of humor, and, like most of you im sure- i cant leave anything alone. even my kids bicycles are crazy whacked out homebuilt choppers. when i hit enough posts, ill put a few pictures up. aloha !
 

"if i cant eat it, ride it, drive it or f*ck it then i dont care"...

HI.
I am beginning a project on my 10th Corvette, a 1977.
Needing to know if the factory hubs will accept knockoff adapters so that I may run 1978 Corvette wheels as knockoffs.
I want that look.
Also, what brand of headers & sidepipes do you recommend for this year car?  Any luck with ceramic coating in the sidepipes?  Thank you!

Welcome to the forum Tip. Not exactly sure what you are asking as far as knock off wheel??? Pictures would help. As far as headers I don't like them in corvettes to much heat & they don't make much difference unless you have a very powerful engine & even then the stock manifolds work well. But if you are going the side pipe way you'll need them. Please reply in appropriate areas of the forum

Hello, I live in southeastern Pennsylvania. Owned a 71 big block air coupe 40 years ago. Then came college, wife, kids, got a 70 and 69 GTO, they're gone. Always wanted another C3, so luckily I found a silver one in New Jersey, 350, 4 sp, air, the typical 73 car. No pb. I used to work at Hemmings Motor News and have been involved with cars for more than 40 years. Just put a new radiator in my 73. What a job. Great site.

Hi my name is Pat,
        I recently purchased a base model 1977 Corvette. I paid $5300.00 for it. The young man I bought it from was going to college and needed the money. His father bought it new in 1977, it has 56,000 miles on it. It is my first Corvette and there is lots that I don't know about fixing and maintaining it. After I tuned it up it runs fine, I also fixed the flip up headlights. The a/c doesn't work and I think the heat is stuck on so there is a list of things that need done. Thanks for having me in your forum.

Hi, thanks for allowing me to join.  I live on 40 acres in SE Nebraska.  My wife just bought a 1981 C3 Corvette about a week ago and it falls to me to keep it up.  She may even allow me to drive it occasionally.  It has a few minor bugs like burned out lights but is otherwise mint and original.  Thanks in advance for all the help; I'll need a lot!  Dan.
