My poor vette

By buddyluv

Filed under: 1979 Chevrolet Corvette (Buddluv's Vette)

This badboy needs everything! So far we replaced-Power steering pump, Brake lines,calipers and rotors, transmission(done by Turnpike Transmission in Middleboro Ma.) The owner is also a Corvette nut, I liked him he was cool! Then the cross-member needed to be fixed 'cause it was bent up. Rick's custom Fabrication in Bridgewater Ma. took care of that. The trailing arms need to be replaced,the suspention needs to be replaced front and rear(because I want to do it right.) New roller cam, lifters, and rockers comin'up. Corvettes and Classics in Taunton Ma. gave me their catalog so i think they got me covered. I'll keep those of you who are interested up to date on the progress. thank you for the positive comments it really, really helps!
