Blue ,
kinda wanted a Black one , but for $1,300 , I think it will do .
It won't start , not getting Fuel , it's the Cold Start Injector ( $25 part ) but they don't know that .
They've been trying to dump it for over two months .

HA ! No one could get it to start and run .
watch for updates .
I'll get it running in 20 minutes or less , that's how long it takes ,me to
take the old injector out and replace it with mine .

Another trick to start it , is take out that cold start injector ,
dump a cup of gas in the port , put injector back , start the sucker while
a buddy keeps spraying fuel into the intake , until it's
warm enough to start without the cold start injector .

I'm a Vehicle Genius ,,, I am .

it's a 1984 , the worse year ever for Corvettes , first of the series 3 ,
so , they were full of bugs like the cold start injector , a Digital Dash Board
that had a paper thin circuit board which would crack and ,,,

zilch , out went all the gauges ( $400 to replace it )

an ECM ( Computer Module ) they stupidly placed in the engine compartment

an Electronic Ignition control module that would over heat and leave
ya stranded until it cooled down for 20 to 30 minutes .

Carpet that would fade and fall apart like Chinese Laptops .

However , I know ways around that stuff .

gonna be a fun drive home to California this Late Spring

Always makes me think of the artist formerly (oh, wait...) known as 'Prince'.

Sorry, no video available on the internets. :(

Funny is , because Prince song , I hate Red Corvette's . tee hee

actually , It's all the Red Interior on Red Corvettes that I dislike .

Hey JR , Radio Shack sells a Product ya smear on the ignition module
before ya put it in the distribute , when dry , it makes an insulator between
so it doesn't heat up .

That's how you fix em
I bought and flipped many a car from people who sold
them dirt cheap because they couldn't figure out the issue .

I like your cheap fix idea though , works in a pinch ,
I guess a Frozen Pot Pie would work too .

Yuppers, an insulator is exactly what you need.
I've become somewhat decent at MacGyver rigging out of necessity throughout the years, but I never thought I'd be starting my car with frozen food.

I once owned one of these, it spent a lot of time in the shop. It was very fast, but did not handle so well.

Thermal Grease is what I was trying to say , Not the little tube
that comes with the EICM , but that good stuff ya buy at Radio Shack
and other electronic stores .

Yes Stigoli , The '84 through '88 Vettes were the assholes of Vettes .

1989 , they switched out most of the problematic fuel and electronics
with better stuff .

It's a 1979 JR

The Guy wanted $3,900 ( reduced from $4,800 )
On the Phone , he said come give me $2,500 and take it outta here .

He's been trying to sell it for over 2 months .

He also will trade for an economy car ( at auctions I get economy cars cheap as ,,, )

Part trade part cash is fine , he will even throw in Cash for the right trade .

Here's his problem , there are no Catalytic Converters on the Vette .

He can't pass Smog ( he's in Calif . )

No one will buy it because Cat's installed cost like $1,000
on dual exhaust in Calif .

where this works well for me , I can register it in Kelso Wash .
NO SMOG COUNTY

keep it on Oregon plates by Mail for years to come

when the Nuance of it wears off ,,, drive up to Portland , sell it for $5,000
then fly back home .
one up here just like it , but stock not custom , just sold for
$,5,500 last weekend .

yep , they go high when people have all that Tax Return Money in hand ,

cool , is it not ?

No Air Cleaner , ( I have one from a junk truck I scrapped )

Salvage Title ( State inspection has to be passed )

I fix that situation by driving it home and Placing a Lien for storage
on the Car ,,
30 days later I get a Clean Lien Title without the Salvage tag .

I get around those DMV laws by figuring out where the loop hole
resides ,
and crawling through them .

in this shot , there are several smog devices missing from the engine .

big deal , those don't apply in Kelso wash .
brakes , lights and horn must work to pass there
and all those work on it .

" Work around kid "

My new Handle ?

State of Calif. DMV passed so many freaking laws concerning
Vehicles , Hoops to jump through every step of the way .

simply , I watched for ways to thwart their crap .
always found some way to get over their Humps .

I used to be so good at it , people would call me up for
suggestions .
I drove for decades with a Drivers License .
still do .
