Details: 1976 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, moderately built 350, automatic, straight, never wrecked, former straight-line race car. Dodge Viper Red. Has minimal interior and a custom racing dash in it at present. Car is restorable or is going to be a bad ass summer driver. Not sure how far we’re going to take it, yet.
We’re actually looking at picking up another C3 parts car from a friend with a decent interior/dashboard and the remaining parts from it will end up on our ebay store.
When asked “Can you be comfortable with being uncomfortable?” in the context of entrepreneurship, I don’t think this is what most people have in mind:
As for me, I find my comfort in these situations knowing that whatever car part I’ve gotten myself into a pretzel shape to deal with will be worth the hassle in the long run.
A lot of folks like to hear what we’re up to, and a picture is worth a thousand words, right? In the foreground is a 1974 Corvette we bought to strip the remaining parts off of… It had the two WORKING headlight buckets we needed for our Project77. Behind that is a 1985 Mercury Capri 5.0L. Classic case of started project, ran out of money. Since the car was dealer undercoated, everything underneath is pristine. The original doors and hatch were rusty but the owner had sourced replacements and they came with the car… We got basically everything except for the heads and intake. This one will likely go back together for sale. Too hard to find a nice fox body that is affordable. My husband has some evil plan for it, we’ll see. And then WAY in the back is a 2003 Mustang Premium Coupe that was my husband’s ex-wife’s car. It need a bunch of little stuff. We’re doing that stuff and then selling it.
Oh… Husband… Yeah, Jerod and I got married on December 15th after a little over 5 years together. I decided that if I drop a car on my head I want him to be the one to be there to make sure my wishes are respected. Not that I don’t love my family, I just KNOW that he will do what *I* want. The same goes in reverse. He’s stood by me during this crazy dream, provided finances, countless hours of instruction, and backs me up 100%, all day, every day. He’s kinda cute, too.
We’re working on getting more items up on the eBay store . We’re also actively posting on our Facebook page and we’re on twitter as fastwrecks.
We hope all is well for you!
Happy new year from the folks at SportsCarSalvage.us!
Now that we are all over the death virus and have wrapped up the Christmas festivities, I’ve been busy pulling parts off of a 1974 C3 Corvette donor car. What we don’t use for our 1977 restoration project will be listed on eBay here: http://stores.ebay.com/sportscarsalvage/ in the “1974 C3 Corvette” category. Let’s just say that I bought the donor car for what I would have paid for two complete headlight assemblies.

Sometimes the monotony of a simple task can lead to a very funny moment… That was today…
Filling up the tires on the 1977 C3 Corvette, having not relocated a compressor, and a LOT of funny stuff happening today led to this video.
