rdicarlo's Dad's 87 Corvette
Permalink  
 


As most of you already know, I traded my 86 Camaro for an 87 Corvette this weekend.  The plan is to get the corvette running and looking good by Spring '12 and suprising my Dad with it.  It is my retirement present to him for being such a hard working, awesome Dad.

I dropped off the 87 Vette at Manny's this weekend and he is going to go through it for me... I want to make sure its running perfect before Dad gets it. If Manny does the C4 like he did my C3, it will be perfect.

To start...

It needs valve seals, a tune up and whatever Manny recommends after he tears into it.

I will redo the interior and weatherstripping after it's running good and painted.

Thanks Jim...

was offered these door panels for $250/each... but I don't really want to mess with painting them.  So I'll tell the guy no and wait to find black or red ones.
