New to the Corvette World
Hello all. I'm completely new to the Corvette world, but very much interested and enjoy the power. I was handed a '81 C3 a month ago that doesn't look like much now. Previously it was nearly running perfect, just needed paint and interior redone. But was stolen right the part was getting fixed. The kids cut all the wires and hoses connected to the engine and took the a/c fan. The cops found them before they attempted to yank the engine out. So all that has to be replaced.
I know nothing about about Corvette's, because i currently drive a '07 Cooper S (completely opposite cars, but I've made it pretty quick with the Turbo, dont underestimate them lol). I've driven a '94 Corvette but that had no motor issues, but enjoyed the rear wheel power. So me and a friend are going to basically start all over and get this baby running again.
So im looking to replace the hoses and wires and fan. So does anyone know of a great place to look online or someone who may know a thing or two local in the Miami/ft. Lauderdale area that is reliable?
