It will go from looking like this to this

thanks for all your help, I am glad I joined this forum!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry for not blowing sunshine up your skirt.

Didn't think I was being an **** about it, but others have disagreed over the years.

How about some pictures of said C3 POS?

Here are some links to show you how if you don't already know.

To say that the car "isn't worth anything...." isn't exactly the truth.

Here are the sold prices, at auction, of a few comparable models.

Lot F259
1975 Chevrolet Corvette
350 CI, Automatic
Sold for $11,500

Lot T162
1975 Chevrolet Corvette
350 CI, Automatic
SOLD for $18,000

Lot F176
1975 Chevrolet Corvette
Sold for $8,000

Lot S36
1975 Chevrolet Corvette
350 CI, Automatic
Sold for $19,000

Lot S186.1
1975 Chevrolet Corvette
$11,500

Lot F65
1975 Chevrolet Corvette
Sold for $11,500

Lot F285
1975 Chevrolet Corvette
350 CI, Auto. Trans.
SOLD for $8,500

Lot A45
1975 Chevrolet Corvette
Sold for $16,000

Average sale price, at auction, going back to 2008 is $13,000.

That's something, maybe not the value of the earlier C3's but still worth something.

Fixed.

And for the record, I never implied '75-77 Coupes weren't worth anything.

For the record, I wasn't quoting you. In fact, I agree with you on your post #10.

The quote is from post #11.

Yes the market may values 75 coupes less than other C3s but there are 75 enthusiasts out there who love their cars and do everything someone with a 67 tri-power coupe does to keep them looking and running great.
I'll just go with this.

I knew that, but I guess I kind of ran that together unintentionally and that made it sound like you did. Mea Culpa.

Don't ever join a Corvette Club then, if you think people on here are jerk-offs! At least with a forum on the net and you run across us A-holes you can walk away from the computer, in a Vette Club you are stuck with these clowns and really can't get away, or do like I did and not show up for meetings or events and let the year membership lapse.............................. at least here you get a mix of people, my experience is in a Club you get one kind----------egotistical and trying to outdo the next
