Hey Y'all just wanted to drop in and say howdy and thanks in advance to those who will likely be there to help when I need it........and I will. I'm in the military and have landed myself in MS and love where I'm at "Good People". I've got my 1st Vette, 1984 White with Carmine Red interior. Body's in good shape, interior's in good shape give or take a few things, however the targa top has a seam down the middle and has been plasta welded ( ? ) and then some bubba put white tape over it to cleverly hide it from some unsuspecting fool (that would be me) there's more to the story. The engine ran fine but the car sits for now. Prior to buying the car I noticed a leak and made a deal that if the compression checked out OK I'd split the cost to have the pan gasket replaced. Compression was good, gasket replaced,......Received call from mechanic (How many quarts of oil does this car take) Seller calls son, son says 9-10..........need I say more?? I've looked at the pan and it looks stock to me. I'm thinking the wrong dipstick is in this thing. Enough is enough.......... Looking forward to linking up with y'all and God Bless!

By the way......Does anybody know how long the dipstick is supposed to be for the '84 Vette? I've got lots of questions but we'll start with this one. Thanx!

LOL Thanks! Some day I'll be able to afford a real Corvette. This one's got some potential and it did drive and handle pretty good when it was running. Only time will tell.

Apparently, in the case of previous owner, long enough to reach the gas pedal from the driver's seat.

Welcome to the CAC! Thanks for serving :pat

You've got that right! Can't really blame anyone other than my self on this deal. Lessons learned. Don't trust family when they're short on cash, Don't trust their friends, and Always do alot of research prior to investing.

Craigar,
Welcome to the CAC and thank you for your service.
Just look upon the 84 as a project, a learning experience. Hopefully you'll get the little things sorted out and everything will be ok.

Thank Y'all I really appreciate the warm welcome and your words of support. This is a very uneasy and unpopular war and although many oppose what's going on, the negativity gets back to the war front. They (Our Soldiers), really need to hear positive feed back. (Serious as a heart attack) Pass It On, Please!!

I would second that; a soldier goes where he is told and does the job he is told to do. So we all need to seperate the politics and no matter what stand behind the troops. I would extend to those that would not want or choose to stand behind the troops to stand in front of them on the battle field.


MAY GOD BLESS AND WATCH OVER ALL THE TROOPS OF PEACHFUL NATIONS
