Default just looking around

Joined this for site because I don't know anything about corvette's. Due to the loss of my brother, I just became the owner of a 1985 corvette. It's been parked in a shed since the late 90's and was worn out when backed in and parked. Cats living in it. Not sure what to do with it but don't want to haul it to junkyard for scrap.

Condolences on the loss of your brother...

The C4 section should be able to give you plenty of input on your 85.

Jeff T has you pointed the right direction to learn how to fix up and care for your Corvette. Sure your brother is pleased you are now caring for his ride.
