My 03 has about the same mileage. That is a very nice example of a car that has been driven, but cared for. I would not hesitate. You might be able to offer 9900 and get it too.

Nope, I think the other half of the 2003 and all of the 2004 model year used this same alternator. It is an AC delco part. Just a direct swap nothing else was required.

I didnt think so either. I havent driven the car in over a month now so it's unlikely there is any coolant left in the throttle body or the hoses at this point.

That was a good idea to use zip ties to pull the plugs in. I definitely messed up my hands good trying to do this. You would think that they would make their leather fit their own foam better. But I...

C5 Corvette Cowl

I've seen this happening on other cars, but it's pretty bad on mine. Has anyone replaced their cowl, or repaired it? This rip is really annoying to look at. Picture below. I have q-bond, but I'd...
