    I am just an old bird, waiting for retirement.

    Lots of options- take a look at Vette Brakes & Products website- they have several different rate springs depending on your car's options and then your intended usage. If you have a steel spring now, there are still a couple of shops around KC that can rebuild yours too.
    I've heard the composite springs ride a little better but I don't have any first hand info= I've still got the original spring in mine.
    Great to hear from you- Tim

    Tim - I'm looking to replace the rear spring in the car. Any suggestions? I don;t want to run into the issue of having the height in the rear look stupid like many experience. Is there a particular mfr/brand that will keep the ride height at factory setting as if new? it is a '76.

    Hey Tim - Hope all is well and the holidays were good. Quick question - I know the Vetter is due for some wheel bearing work - not sure much has ever been done.... do you have the tools to help - are you interested - I can obviously come your way this time. No rush - figured it might be a good spring project when it actually warms up.

    Tim - just send me a message here after you get your list of stuff done while in town. I don't want to intrude in any way on your time here!!!! I am leaving for a short vaca next Friday thru Monday but will do whatever I need to in order to time it at your convenience as best I can!!! I think part of the issue may be associated with moisture in getting into the distributor - car cut out on me yesterday - heavy rain here, but fired right up today and ran fine. Cap and Rotor are supposed to be here today. Looking forward to meeting you and to hopefully a short day of troubleshooting

    Hey Tim, Could you please send me your write up on swapping out the rear main seal? Want to tackle that project this weekend. Thanks, Rodrigo

    Good looking '69! As I mentioned at Lucky's, I am currently Vette-less. Don't know if I will be getting another C3 or not.
    Here are the addresses for two pictures of my Vettes through the years.

    Thanks for the dinner. Give me a jingle the next time you are in the area.

    I just replaced the dash wiring harness and was gonna start it and check things out before I put the door panels and dash on. Alt, battery, and ignition switch all show 12 volts but it won't really begin to crank. As I stated in earlier post one of the red wires is now in a different spot on ignition switch than original. Could that be it??
