- Tell us about your Corvette: 1981 C3 Corvette, in better condition than when I got it, but that's not saying much.

I do have to share as I was so amazed at my stupidity, excitement when purchasing is a horrible thing (wife wont even let me near auctions or yard sales). The amazing exhaust tone was because the entire exhaust from 4 inches past the cat was just gone. The smog pump was also gone but all the pluming was still there, oh and the front passenger side exhaust header wasn't bolted down at the front, found out this was because a run off bolt is in the hole.
This and much more has made it a difficult project but I am very happy to save a car that was surly headed to the junk yard soon. Really it has little to no rust and what it did have I have already taken care of. The interior was closer to a mushroom farm and is now completely out but that's ok because it was blue and I am installing black. Additionally every bushing in the car if still there has long turned to powder. Just a few things but boy it has been fun and my daughters, the "Corvette Sisters" as they call themselves love it.
