Default A pic of my first Corvette...

I'm a bit excited. I bought it two weeks ago. 1989 with 113k. Came with a binder of all service records since first owner.

Be Safe

Roadcaqpt- The whole car is immaculate. Few chips on the nose from normal wear after 24 years. Interior carpet is immaculate. Leather seats were reupholstered by last owner. Has been kept in a garage under a custom cover for past two years (when not being driven). New tires, new AC compressor, two tops, two extra wheels. Only repair needed is driver window. Rolls half way down and fortunately rolls back up, but I need to find out which component needs to be repaired. First autox for this car on Sunday!

Nice car congradulations! No AutoX to slow and it will break your car if it is not set-up and taken well cared for....just saying. Find a Track Organization like NASA, and hit the track. Life starts at 120 mph.

Gook luck
