On my $650 neglected car, and 86, one calliper was rusted and needed to be replaced. It was the piston bore that had rested. The other three needed a good purging

On cars like this everything needs to be checked!

congrats on the super deal man, i also purchased a 91 for 500 bucks. i just got it in November of last year and its been sitting in the cold garage since i brought it home. can't wait for spring to come this year.. i might have more of a project on my hands than what you do though. the car had an engine fire and they have it hacked up with a carb and old style intake, many problems i have found within just a few hours of snooping so far, but its a zf 6 speed with dana 44 3.45 gears. Brand new convertible top the guy had installed and never even took the top down the entire time he owned it all black leather interior in really good shape for being 28 years old. i will be watching your posts here to see where you are going with your 500 dollar vette . nice tire smokeage btw

You could take that luggage rack off and probably sell it for what you paid for the car! Used or nos, those things are hard as hens teeth to find. Good luck with the resto.

I like the Cray wheels and thinking strongly on putting them on mine. What size are they and size tires? Mine is an 86 as well. Where did you find them?

I believe 18inch is the smallest size. The cray website should give you all the info about the wheels. I recommend searching eBay if you want to get accurate pricing.

If you lose the rack, you have a whole lotta holes to fill. I got one on my 93 Ruby and was offered $750 for it at Carlisle last Summer. Nope, Iím keeping it!
