Hey everybody,

My name is is Tim. I'm originally from NY, but relocated to NC 2 years ago. I have restored 2 Chevelles, 1 Camaro, and 1 El Camino in the past. I have wanted a Corvette my whole life. I just bought a beautiful 74 that needs just about everything.

It is a matching #s car that has not been touched and you can tell by looking underneath.

Just as a start, I would like to ask for recommendations on replacing shocks, springs, and brakes. Should I upgrade, or should I go strictly with original equipment?

Hey Everybody ! :thumbsup:

thank you for all the welcomes. Its really nice to hear from all of you.

I intend to restore the car completely mechanically, then interior, then put back the original hood and rear bumper. I will be driving the car whenever I'm off. I will not be racing it, or entering contests. I am looking for a comfortable ride. I will be going to local car shows for fun. I intend to enjoy this car as much as possible. I am a car junkie. I just wish I had the money to buy and keep several of them.

Welcome new N.C. GUY

Of course there's a South Carolina but everyone knows there's only one Carolina and that's in Chapel Hill. Follow the "HEELS" and you'll se what I mean!
