    Default New Member with a Question

    Hi,

    My name is Marc Schnell and I am a new member. I am the proud owner of a recently purchased 1981 Drk Blue/Blue Leather 4-speed and a 2007 Z06 Machine Silver. I have loved corvettes ever since I first learned about cars. I have always wanted a corvette but the timing was never right. I finally purchased my Z06 in June 07 and my 81 in Dec 07. I love driving them both equally. I plan on turning my 81 into my own 81 Z06. I do have a question regarding the rocker moldings. My 81 has chrome rocker moldings every other 81 that I have seen have black moldings. Was chrome an option? or were they replaced with earlier moldings? Any info regarding this question would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for creating the L81 Registry. I plan on using it frequently.

    All the best
    Marc

    Welcome Marc!!

    I believe all '81s came with black rocker molding, however it is common for owners to strip and polish the panels, along with the rear window trim. Some people just prefer it.

    Hey All,

    Eleanor is my car, an 81 Drk Blue with Silver interior. A Bowling Green beauty. Got her in June '07. My wife says I'm obsessed. My name is Frank.

    I check this forum daily and enjoy the posts. Have found them very helpful as I'm starting to fix things on Eleanor and that is a first for me, an accountant by profession. I actually have grease under my finger nails!Having a blast doing it.

    Thanks to Bud and Paul for all they have and continue to do.

    Frank

    Hi pbcanney- I needed this shifter bracket also for my 81 project. I finally found one on ebay. I think I paid $25 maybe $30 with shipping.

    I see ther is a used one on ebay today. Unfortunately, they want $79 for it in a non-bid (Buy It Now) listing. This seems pretty steep to me, but I know how much time I spent looking at every on-line catalog that I could find.

    You probably already know about this one, but here is the link just in case.
    Good luck.

    79 is still a fair price given the rarity of the bugger
    I should ask to have that post from 3 years ago deleted as I eventually found 1 (make that 2) since I posted that

    My fault, I somehow thought I was in new posts and I didn't notice the date. I'm new to this forum stuff.

    That's how I felt when I found the The L81 Corvette Registry back in late 2000 / early 2001. First Bud (Yoda) kept it going, and relatively recently, he passed the reigns to PBCanney to carry-on the torch.

    And thanks to Rob for maintaining this page as well.
