    Hey, guys!

    I recently bought an '80 and it needs a lot of work (the engine bay is a complete mess). I've got a long road ahead of me, but it'll be worth it!

    It's how I started with mine! Took more than a couple years, but I'm pleased with the results. You'll get there too!

    1971 Stingray Convertible

    Hello all! I joined last year, but first posted yesterday. I have a numbers matching '71 Stingray convertible I inherited when my father passed. We both have a passion for cars. We would do car shows and cruise nights together (I also own a modified '94 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 that twin turbo and AWD/AWS, and no, its NOT riced out, just fast, lol).

    Growing up I had a few classic's, a '70 Trans Am, '77 Monte Carlo and a '78 Firebird and while I enjoy my Japanese sports car, I wanted to get back to raw power and the sweet purr of a rumbling V8. So when my Dad left his pride and joy to me, I went over her, put her on jack stands, covered her and she sat in garaged hibernation until my stint in the military was up. Fast forward to last spring and after 5 years of waiting on me, she came back to life. Was great going to the shows my Dad did and people asking it if I'd bought his car or if I knew the previous owner, cause a car exactly like mine used to do the show circuit in the area. After telling them I am his son, doors and arms flew open so to speak and I've been taken in by the flock. Any of you who routinely do car shows know what I'm talking about. Love it and can't wait for the weather to get nicer! Had her out a few weeks ago when New England teased us with back to back 50+ days!
    I'm a good wrench, but still learning the ins and out of this particular beast, like the best fluids to use, how to get the dash apart to replace the busted speaker, etc.

    Thanks,

    Butch

    Default Welcome to the forum.

    Recommend getting a Factory Service Manual from Helm Inc. Getting the dash pad off is not hard, just cumbersome due to how much trim you have to remove to get to it. IIRC, you have to flex it a little to clear the A-pillars. Have to be careful there as it's probably brittle from age.

    Technically, we don't have a forum of our own, but we do hang out most of the time @ this site;

    C3 Corvettes, 1968 - 1982 - Corvette Forum

    And more specifically on this board;

    C3 General - Corvette Forum

    The traffic on these sites is fast and furious. You post a thread and ten minutes later it's half way down the page. You have to constantly keep refreshing the page. here is one of several links that we (the California Stingrays ) have posted;

    California Stingrays cruise 2013 - Corvette Forum

    I joined this site in hopes to generate more interest in the state and local cruises that we sponsor. But in the short time I have been here, it appears that most of the members here are located East of the Mississippi. Always nice to meet new friends though.
