I found a yellow 1977 advertised for sale in my local area at 1st glance I just gleamed over the ad but, I remembered seeing something that caught my eye about this particular car, it was the yellow and brown Fiero seats that Alan had installed sure enough, I asked about the last 4 numbers on the VIN and confirmed it to be my old 1977 that I sold to Bob (Jetmender) who in turn sold it to Alan, Alan sold it last year and I sent Alan a link to the advertisement, The car needless to say, has seen some outrageous changes and the asking price did/does not reflect what the car is worth in My opinion,
maybe Alan still has the link and can post it here so you all can judge for yourself. Me, I thought it was a shame what someone did to what was a nice example of a 1977 Corvette!!

Here's the link..they must be some sick people to wreck a almost perfect 77. Cry  But I did keep the seats & all the documentation plus the complete OEM Exhaust Binnie gave me..& will pass them on to a more deserving person sometime.

Alan was kind enough to share the link.
Yikes! It is sad to see a near perfect car get boogered up.

On the other side, it is his choice. The mods I could identify can be undone pretty easily.

Maybe someone will buy it, join here, and. . . . . .
Well, either way, it is still a nice car with potential!

I’d put it back if it were mine but given my mods to my 69 who am I to judge! Lol

Well I know this car very well & that engine is tired so with the side pipes to make it look bad someone is liable to run it hard.  It won't make it. I had planned to pull the engine & do a complete overhaul & install flat to pistons with a mild cam. It also will need the trailing arm bearings replaced along with all new ujoints. So it looks like they spent there money in the wrong areas. Also they will be lucky to get 10K for that car the way it looks now.
