Default Back in the saddle again...

Personal problems have prevented me from doing much work on the 'Vette these last two years but I finally got it in my head that life must go on and that the 'Vette is worth a lot more if I get it painted than if I don't. Plus I want to DRIVE IT!!!
The inspection sticker expired about 2 years ago so I had to partially reassemble the car so I could get it inspected. Today it is at the local shop for an inspection. Next week I will drive the car to Precision Automotive Restorations in Havertown Pa. so I can get an estimate to finish the body work and get the car painted. I just do not have the time, tools or skills to attempt doing it myself. Hopefully I will be posting some more progress pics soon...

Cool! Working on the Vette is always good therapy for me.

I just got back from the shop. Emissions are way out of whack, a couple of plugs are fouled out. All sorts of troubles from the car sitting for so long.
