  • 1988 Corvette

    Dude has a 1988 Corvette. TPi 350, auto, targa top, 120k miles. Runs and drives great, no rust, dark red color, trading for my 1990 camaro rs. My car is a TBI 305, 5 speed, t-tops, 120k, lots of bolt ons, needs paint.
    Anything I should look for when looking at his Vette tomorrow? I am meeting him at 11. He says he jsut wants another camaro. He supposidly had an 87, sounds like an older guy. Knows the work needed on my car and is interested enough to drive an hour south to me.

      transmission is somewhat vette specific, check the upper a-arm bushings and also the rear control arm bushings.... along with wheel bearings.

        in addition to the suspension features :-\

        make sure the dash lights up bright.... the lights open and close simultaneously (if they don't at least one motor is bunk)... and the dashboard computer works. .. oh yeah, and the antenna goes up and down.... all are common flaws and things that can add up in a hurry.

        2 years too old for me... I hate the gee-whiz dash....
        Doing it all wrong since 1966

          If it has the digital dash, make sure its working because when they go bad it cant be fixed. You'd have to buy a rebuilt unit.
