    Chrome Yourself vs Buy Online

    Nearly every Vette owner has wanted to put some chrome on their car to dress-up the motor or chassis. Some of the aftermarket parts available are GM OEM that have been chromed by the seller, while...
  5. Size Does Matter

    Hib you're right on the money about size. The Edelbrock Elite has a 3" filter which is a fairly large size (really 2 7/8") and is the one I experimented with - it will work. I looked into all the...

    I know that they are an essential part of the engine's cooling area but why simply have a black hole when it could have been dressed up a little. Makes no sense to me

    I affectionately call them rat holes. Why didn't GM fill these holes with grilles like the other series and models???
  14. Has anyone seen where to get those C3 Fender Grilles??????
