    Hi to every one
    I am new to corvette ownership. I just recently purchased a 1985 corvette coupe, and I am loving every thing about it, the car was in very good original condition with only 74000 miles. I am looking forward to doing some horse power improvments this winter, along with a few minor repairs. Any suggestions would be appreciated as far as performance improvments to this car. Thanks to all who might be willing to help.

    Welcome to the forum Ron. Enjoy your 1985 Corvette.
    I had a new 85 that was Red/Grey with the 4 plus 3 shift. Great car.
