Used Corvette Convertible

No Comment

A: 1969 1969 1969 is one of the most wanted corvettes there is.
and you could get them with a 327cid 350cid 396cid and the 427cid and after that would be the 1970 as this was the first year for the 454, and the last year of big horse power cars
in 1972 horse power went down as this was the beginning of the 70s gas crisis

Q: Where is the best place to look and purchase a used 2005 or 2006 convertible corvette?

A: http://www.carmax.com/ There is a really good chance you can fine what you need here.Best of luck.

Q: Where can I purchase a convertible hardtop for corvette 88 after market OR used?

A: Try Ecklers corvettes.

Q: Is it legal to allow my baby to ride in my 1986 corvette convertible?
Is my girlfriend allowed to ride on the center console, and have the carseat belted down on the passengers seat?
I have no other transportation and need to use the corvette just for temporary….baby is 9 months old….no I have no plans to sell the car or trade it in for a minivan.
I live in Michigan.
Don’t want to risk getting a ticket.

A: First of all, there is no law mandating the seating of a child in a vehicle that has two rows of seats. That would eliminate a lot of pick up trucks and a few other vehicles.

Second of all, the car does not have a passenger side air bag.

It is completely safe to tote your child around in your Corvette if you have them properly secured. You unfortunately will not be legal with an additional person riding with you as they will be improperly secured.

Q: what cleaner should I use to on a corvette convertible?

A: IF you are talking about the top itself it is best, depending on the color of it, a cleanser such as Bon Ami or a heavy duty vinyl cleaner. DO NOT USE DAWN DISH WASHING DETERGENT. YOUR CAR IS NOT A FRYING PAN.
DISH DETERGENT WILL STRIP ALL WAX FROM THE CARS FININSH.
MEGUIARS MAKES THE HEAVY DUTY VINYL CLEANER. IT WILL ALSO CLEAN YOUR SEAT BELTS AND ANY OTHER TYPE OF VINYL BASED THINGS IN YOU CAR. DO NOT USE IT ON LEATHER.

AGAIN, DO NOT USE DISH DETERGENT.

Q: Can a performance chip make a 95 BMW 325i much peppier than a 97 BMW 328i Convertible?
My son has the 95 BMW 325i and I have driven it for months while he was in Iraq. I have the 97 BMW 328i convertible and my car is not nearly as peppy. He bought a chip for his car so it would perform better only to find it already had one in it. The new chip made little or no difference.

His car does have a performance air filter and air scoop, but that’s about all as far as the engine is concerned. When I drive my stock convertible it is sluggish compared to his car. It is a noticeable difference. We both have about the same number of miles (about 125,000 mi) and had similar tires. I didn’t really think a performance chip could make such a difference on old cars, but it’s a noticeable difference in the two cars. Both cars are automatic and neither one is dogged around.

I am aware my convertible is probably a couple of hundred pounds heavier, but would that make such a difference in performance? Both cars are running well and neither needs a tuneup or any other maintenance.

Is it really the chip making his car feel quite a bit peppier or is it the extra weight of my car making it feel sluggish compared to his? If I had never driven his car I would still feel my car is somewhat sluggish. However, I am used to high performance cars as I have had three Corvettes and a Porsche so maybe I expect too much. The last time I had a fast convertible I had a fuel-injected 63 Corvette Sting Ray, which was far peppier than the Vette I have now (1989) or the BMWs.

A: To be honest, it could be any number of things. It really depends on the upkeep of your car versus his. And yes, the added weight of the convertible is absolutely slowing you down. But there’s not much you can do about that. You could try “chipping” your car, but it’ll always be several hundred pounds heavier. Go to www.bavauto.com – they have quite a few performance upgrades for E36’s, that’s a good place to start. Personally, I’d recommend a turbo kit if you really want to blow your son’s doors off. But that’s not exactly cheap.

Q: Are car covers good for a car parked outside?
I just got a car cover for my 1999 Corvette Convertible, and was wondering about using in when parked outside. I just read in popular mechanics that covers are bad in the rain, and when it is windy. has anyone ever had a car cover damage the paint when used? I want to protect the interior and the convertible top, but not at the expense of damaging the paint.

A: yeah if you don’t have a garage, and you realy love your car, get a cover!

Q: Is it time to sell my Corvette?
My car is a Black 02 corvette convertible, custom exhaust, custom seats & covers, custom body kit as well and it’s now got 53000 miles, i’d like to know when’s a good time to sell the car before it loses too much value? i’ve had some recurring problems the past year and half, one of which we just now figured out and i think i now know what the last one is, if i fix it it’ll be the first time i’ve had it that it ran perfect with no grinding or rattling marbles sounds. but the mileage concerns me and i’m about to take it from vegas to boston and then back as well, i’d like to upgrade if i sell it but i know i wont get near what i paid ($38000) in Dec.04 for it.

I really love the car but i want something with lower miles so is it best to sell it privately to maxmize the amount i can get for it now?

and my credit is garbage so normal financing options dont apply to me i’ve got to use cash on a trade in.

please help
corvette lover

A: Cars are a bad investment. Get out while you can.

Q: My 97 BMW 328i Convertible plastic rear window turned brown and faded the past 6 months can it be salvaged?
I goofed and let my car sit for several months in the hot California sun while I drove my other car and was out of the country for a while, when before it was always garaged. Now the rear window is faded and brown after sitting. The last 2-3 months the window was covered, but the damage is already done.

I will be driving it in a couple of weeks and wonder if there is a way to make it clear again or is the problem irreversible. I haven’t yet tried to do anything, but am afraid it will be another big bill or might need a new top which otherwise is in good condition.

If need be, can I get a new plastic window to replace it or even better, a thick plastic or glass window? I used to have a 63 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible with a hard top. The rear plastic window was thick plastic and never got dull the 11 years I had it. Is there such a thick plastic window available for BMWs?

If there is an easy solution to at least get the window fairly clear so I can see through it or is it a lost cause? I just spent a lot of money on my other older 7 series BMW so right now money is a problem, otherwise I’d just get a new top if the window was not renewable.

A: This easy-to-use, rich gel formula quickly restores optical clarity to both rigid and flexible clear plastics. Cutting-edge advancements in Meguiar’s® exclusive Microscopic Diminishing Abrasive™ Technology (MDAT) remove light oxidation, chemical degradation, surface contamination, stains and light surface scratches with ease. Special highly water resistant polymers provide long lasting durable protection to keep your clear plastics clear and beautiful longer. We recommend applying PlastX with a High Tech Applicator Pad or Ultra Plush Super Terry and using an Ultra Plush Super Terry or Supreme Shine® Microfiber for the final wipe-off.

Q: Was there better fiscal control of government when only landowners(taxpayers) had a right to vote?
Imagine if your children had a right to vote how you spent your paycheck and used your credit card. You would have a house filled with Barbie dolls and video games. When you need to buy a new mini-van to haul the family around, they would vote for you to buy 2 convertible corvettes – they are too good to be seen in a mini-van.

What is the difference when people that pay no Federal or State taxes get to vote for the Big Spending Marxist Democrats?

A: I would not agree to only allow land owners to vote, but I would support only allowing productive members of society the right to vote. You must have a JOB, or be retired from a JOB. If you are on govt. assistance you don’t get to decide how money you have not contributed gets spent.

Q: What kind of gas mileage can i expect?
I’m considering buying a 1995 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 convertible. The car has the LT1 V8 engine in it that Chevy used to put into the Corvette.

A: I drove a 94 Capris Classic patrol car and it had the Corvette engine in it and when I was patrolling and running down speeders I averaged about 10 MPG but when I did escort duty escorting over-sized loads we ran 35 to 55 MPH during the escort then I went the speed limit back home and it got about 20 MPG. I thought it did quite well when driving normally. It also had tremendous power, it ran like a big block Chevy. It would get up to over 100 MPH in no time and that was what we had to do to catch speeding traffic.

Q: smuggled hotcars in the philippines will be destroyed?
there are some smuggled hotcars here in the philippines like a convertible corvette, audi a8, nissan armada, a few bmws, a lamborgini and some porsches……….those cars will be destroyed i think today because they are smuggled and our president ordered that those hotcars must be destroyed…………………I think our president is not thinking right because she can auction of those hotcars which costs more than 18million pesos and the money can be used by the government for improving our country

A: smole is definitely crazy. just auction it off and give the proceeds to the poor.
