See how the Corvette auction block sales are & prices sold.

Some guys are paying $30-40K for the Bandit Trans Ams.

Fabricating & Welding is in right now Zinc.
You can do both I know.
All my bud Ed does 99 % of the time now.

Face Book has become a cluster Fick.

One guy I know is using Lindkein to land sidework with others Nationwide.
He works more forums than I do daily.
10-12 per day he said in the past.
John is doing OK.
Little guy like us.

I notice other things too that used maintain value no longer do. I have to believe fewer people have as much disposable income as they used to. It's unfortunate, but I agree if Zinc can somehow hold on to it, it'll be worth more again some day. Not to mention looking back and regretting not having it in the future. Times are still tough.

My Goal is to put the Corvette back on Spot Light.

I am not talking about the C7 ZR-1 or C8.
They are both special purpose built Vettes to compete & Win against Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Mc Cleron, & Bughatti.

Believe it or not what gets the most attention instant is losing or hack sawing the exhaust off your Corvette or Musclecar Race Car.

Fireballs shoot out of my 1987 Vette now with no exhaust now .
Pretty Blue & Purple Flames about 2-3 feet long.
The Younger Guys just Love It.
Same with my 1963 GP. No exhaust.
I showed the 5.0 Cops in Joliet & Romeville police too at work.
Opened the Hood & Thunder.
Cracked the throttle & Fireballs shot out.
They All laughed & Loved it....:cheers:
Been a Long time since Hollywood has used a Corvette in a Movie.
Street Racing Away.

This is why I don't sell anything anymore. I refuse to deal with this crap.


i feel that way too---unfortunately with my boys meds
jumping from $300/month (somewhat affordable IF you
budget right) to $1000+ a month (not really affordable
at all unless you got oprahs $$$...) i dont really have a
choice, a 'better career' isnt really feasable at this point
as i am struggling with my 69yr old mom with her failing
health, my son with leukemia, holding down a fulltime job,
trying not to succumb to exhaustion myself all at the
same time, PLUS juggling 3 ongoing projects.....

theres also the "EESBM" factor---
Everybody
Else's
****
But
Mine

A 1978 Rubber Bumper C3 sold for $110,000 on Mecums auction block.
Been researching for you.
Custom cars are hard to put a Value on exact.
Big Blocks Rule.
Got a Mecum's thread going down in Bad Shark Lounge.

I put a value at $25,000 on your Car.

Once setup it only takes 1-2 minutes to upload to You Tube you Video.

Richard is floating around somewhere.'
He is the Mecum & Barrett Jackson expert.

i think it may be worth at LEAST the low book
($16K at haggerty, $37k high...) but hey if you
think its worth $25k you can have it for my asking
price of only $9k, and shipping would run you maybe
$2k-$3k to west coast then truck to chicago...

so for under $12k it could be sitting in your driveway.

what a deal !!! im down if you are, hah hah......:D

Hagerty is whatever.
We never went by that for auction prices for estimated values.

some of em never do.... and although mine is
fast ( really fast...) the best part is even at the
maybe 475-500hp level, im still using a hydraulic
flat tappet isky, sane 10-1 pistons, a regular off
the shelf 800EPS edelbrock carb, a 2500 stall, and
3,73 gears.

so the car is reliable as a rock, and EXTREMELY streetable.
its been a daily driver for the last 3-4 years as is and has
had 1 upper radiator hose blow out, 1 fan belt that threw,
(same day! note to self--NEVER use "masterpro" from oreally,
always pay the extra $5 for the gates brand...) one plug
in a tire, and 1 dead battery.

other than that it has never let me down. and tho there
are many faster cars around here, we tend to know who
is who and usually dont [email protected] with each other. so
it has never lost a street race---YET !

i love me some big block chevys and the 400/455
pontiacs, 455 olds & buicks, 500 cad, 460 ford, 440
chrysler, etc.... done em all, and like you i can make
em ALL fly.... each has its pros and cons, its strengths
and weaknesses, but the theory and recipies are very
similar.

Sorry to hear about your boy. All the best to him and you.

thanks brother, hes actually doing VERY well right now,
they do bloodwork every 3 months (to see if they need
to adjust his dosage on the meds) and the previous one
he had .06% cancerous cells, this last time came back as
0.000, so his meds are spot-on and hes in remission right now.

:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
