Well theres been big talk about gradulating to three wheels from two ..I decided to go with 4 with open copit if I want ..as the way to go .. I know Joel will like this choice he is a vette guy ...so am I ...totally American I really like the c4 vette like this one ..thete pluses are many ..in there day they ruled the road tracts ..took the Europeans years to catch up . this one is a 87 yr convertible it weighs in at about 3000lbs it has about 240 to and 350lbs torque motors were tuned for low end torque and it sure has that but not a lot of top end rpm power by today's standards ...EPA had the better really hamper ..but these c4 vettes really were quite the monsters under all the restrictions of EPA ...it's biggest plus is the handle and there low end torque makes them instant performer right off idle ...this one is 4 speed automatic and that's what I wanted ...you all your hands on the wheel and the auto trans needs no help to be.where it needs to be in my opinion ...this car 47000 miles on it ..it still has the original tires on it ..they all dated to 87 ..and they seem to have right at half the tread on them ..car been garage kept it whole life ..rubber on ariginal top is all good and it's quiet inside with top on ..top is ma de perfect it seems takes less than 30 seconds to deal with and totally disappears when down ..motor like brand new ...I love sport cars and have had a few ..I had a sumbean tiger...and a tricked fleeareo..tiger had a v8 the flee was a v6 ..both were dangerous as HELL when you lost traction cornering ..but this vette is the perfect sports car and dam safe ...and with the top down its got motorcycle mode ..I just love it I'd say this car got decades left in it .
.more storage on a wing than this thing I'm ok with that ...hope you like it ..I think it's a great investment and 3000lbs of fun

Nice Joe... I like the vettes. Between the vette and the stang they are the epitome of American muscle cars in the day. I was never keen on mustangs. Still aren't...
By today's standards I prefer either the dodge challenger or the Chev Camaro. Challenger in demon Form.
Now that we've stopped making Australian muscle cars.. No more ford or GM Holden we turn to the US for anything with a stinking big V8 in it. Sadly... We need a prime minister that can make Australia great again. We have all the resources to build our own stuff. But no... We ship our iron ore off to China or Korea and buy it back as motor vehicles.
The problem in Australia is GREED.
We could be leaders in the cannabis and hemp industry.. So much vacant land that we could make use of...
That's my rant.... He Joe.... Nice colour too bro... :-)

Hey Joe, is it fuel injected or carb’d? Any forced induction?

It's fuel injected Dan and thatsxa good point there right there looking at you ..this motor is really easy to work ..only thing I saw I bit difficult was bottom radiator hose..heck the whole hood and fenders lift up wheels brakes motor all right there ...

They have thete minuses like computer display dash you can't see in bright fla sun and most find them ruff rides and hard to get in and out of but I have no problem with that

Thanks for the comments

Way to go Joe! Glad to see it. Now you need to trailer to take it with you when you’re in the bus on the road!

Nice car.

Thanks all ..like I do everything I've been looking at potential problems ..there's a few ..they seem to run very hot stock ... I went for a ride today sheesh love this car what a fantastic ride ... I really havnt done much but putter around

But I can tell this the best handling car I've ever owned ..in overdrive at 75mph the motor only turning 1800 rpm it's should do fine on a road trip mpg..the only mod I'm thinking about is the cooling system making it independent from the ecu ...installing a cooler thermostat and matching that with one of those fan on triggers that work by inserting in radiator core finns ..just thoughta right now and won't bigger up any of the stock gear and could put back stock easy
..anyway thanks guys and yes darrel I need away to take car with ..I did make a deal that mounts hooch right to that back of the bus lol

Maybe a heavy duty fan clutch, they engage earlier. Made all the difference on my service van.

'Lectric fans on these.....
These car run hotter than "normal"....it's part of the emissions crap. However, they are also designed to withstand the hotter temps. The fans don't even come on until around 229-230*f. Trying to make them run cooler will mess with the fuel infection and timing, and also accelerate piston/bore wear. Best to leave it alone if you plan on using it as a driver. Just my opinion from many years experience with them. Your car, do as you wish... :whistling:

Here's a shot of my '85...

230*f! :shock:

Any other engine I have worked on would be on the way to be cooked! Boy, that is a fine line for the coolant. A bit too much water and not enough coolant and you could be on your way to boiling pretty quick.
