I was never really  interested in a corvette though my b/in-law had one for 9 years. In dec of 05 we were having lunch(our christmas get together),when b/in-law started talking about selling his vette.Just out of curiousity I asked what he wanted for it and  he said he would take 3,000 for it. After i picked my jaw off of the floor, i thought this would make a good project for me, as my companion had recently passed and i was at home by myself. It turned out to be great. I joined a local car club and later met my new companion through the club president (she worked for him).It turned out i fell in love with this car. I have repainted it viper red (originally it was black), i have replaced the charcol grey interior with black leather, replaced all the carpet and door sills.I replaced the stereo and the steering wheel. I replaced the original 16 inch wheels with 17 inch bullits. Engine and drivetrain are all original. I take it  to local car shows and have won many awards. I am very proud of this car. bluebird2011-06-19 14:27:35

I like the look of those wheels on the car, they fit! I have seen countless others make a goofy attempt... I was beginning to think that no one could make it work.

Thanks, I found those wheels at a car show I was attending. The vendor had this set and I thought they looked good, so I rolled one all the way across the park and sat it beside the car and looked at it. Imoved it from front to b ack and side to side and decided I liked them enough to buy.I bought them and put two in the vette and two in a friends 'goat' and took them home.

Thanks for saving another wonderful car.  They really are fun cars to have, drive, look at, and show off.  Endless.

I like the looks of those wheels on that car, too.  In fact, I like the entire car.  There's just something so familiar  about it . . . 🤔. . . 😉
