1979 Corvette Rescue

In 1997, one of my best friends invited me to his house after school. We were in 9th grade and he lived alone with his mom in a high-rise building that had an underground garage.

He asked me if I wanted to see something cool and of course, I agreed.  

We proceeded down to the garage where he removed a dirty car cover to reveal a vintage Corvette. It belonged to his mother.  All I can remember was that he said it was his mother's first car that she'd bought brand new back in the Seventies. 

The Vette was very dusty and hadn't been driven in years.  It just sat there.  At that time, I didn't know exactly what year or model it was.  All I knew was that it was an old Corvette.

Off and on we would go over to his place with our BMX bikes to hang out and I'd see the car over the years just sitting there.

C3 Corvettes at the Equestrian Center

A few Ocala C3 Corvette Owners Group members brought their Vettes to the World Equestrian Center in Ocala, Florida, Saturday, July 15, 2023, for a benefit car show.

The World Equestrian Center is a fantastic place that has to be experienced, so if you're ever in the North Central Florida area, you have to visit, especially if they are having a car even of some sort.

I am guesstimating that there were well over 120 vehicles at the show, and even though the event took place during summer, having an air-conditioned building made all the difference in the world.

Make the Wiper Cowl Look Better Than New

This is the ULTIMATE guide to C3 Corvette windshield wiper bay restoration.

And while some will say that these cars never looked this good even when they were new (and they'd be 100% correct), I am not a purist when it comes to parts of my Corvette that look horrible. 

If there's one thing I despise, that is mediocrity. And if there's something I can do to eliminate it, then consider it done.

So if you want your C3 Corvette's wiper cowl to look BETTER than new, I made this video for you!
