    Default Hello!

    I just bought my first Vette! Also my first eBay car...
    96 Lt4 Polo Green, tan interior, targa. 60k miles.
    A bit of an impulse buy. Rented a car to new Jersey and drove her home to WI last week. 1700 miles in 30 hours!
    So far the only issue is the right turn signals don't blink, they come on though... I'll figure that out soon enough.

    Welcome to CAC. That's quite an adventure for your first Corvette. That should have brought forth any problems you should encounter for a while. Pictures......we need pictures.

    I'm looking to ad some headers to this beast, but its been hard to find a tuner with these engines. They state that it's a pain to deal with the opti spark. The most recent call to a tuner told me that he wouldnt touch it because of this. And that torq head has a solution. Yeah, at two thousand dollars?! to convert it. I have read that the opti spark is questionable. but I dont' think that it's bad...

    Welcome to CAC and compliments on a very nice car...

    IMO, when a "tuner" says he won't touch it; he is saying he doesn't know how.
    Whoosh, and blur

    It doesn't psycho blinker telling me one is out. In fact, they all light up, just don't flash?

    I live in Williamstown ! Right off the Black Horse Pike.
    1157 bulb has 2 filaments,1 is the running lights,the other is a combo brake & turn signal,when that burns out the brake light or turn wont work.
    Forgot, it might have the push in style bulb,that will be a different #,my 85 took the 1157
