Vette(s): Used to own a 1979 Corvette now owned by JB79
There have been some posts recently where people are responding with"google it" instead of offering valuable information. Most people know they can google something to get info. In fact, many members are here because they googled something about C3s and it brought them to us.
However, when they ask questions here they are looking for the experience of members and not some generic info they may find by googling it. If you don't have any information to add to a thread, you probably shouldn't be replying. If you want to help the member and do some research by googling it for them and then reply with your findings, that would be helpful.
Vette(s): 79 L-82 4-speed. Original block now a 383 with aluminum heads, roller cam and rockers, Edelbrock intake, MSD distributor and ignition module, Speed Demon 650 carb. Rebuilt and upgraded all steering and suspension.
Thank you Adam, for the reminder. I had a less than helpful response to my very first post here in 2009 and nearly did not renew because of it.
I have to agree with Adam and everyone else that has responded. The reason I keep coming back (and paying to do so) is the fact that we don't see those types of responses here very often. But they, and much worse, are very prevalent on the free forums. I am constantly amazed at the extremely poor examples of human behavior I see on so many different free forums. I have to use them though - I haven't found a forum like this for my '91 Suburban I bought this summer!
Hey Adam, any interest in starting a forum with the C3VR model for GM full size trucks, 1973-1991 (AKA "Squarebodies")????
1976 Silver/Firethorn. L48, 4spd. Original 2 bolt, vortec heads, 9.4:1 CR, Speed Pro Cam: firstname.lastname@example.org, 112 LSA, Eagle Steel Crank.
Vette(s): 1972 conv, 4-speed, 350, 200hp, numbers match, rally wheels, war bonnett yellow w/white top. good condition, nice driver.
Never did find much of any assistance on that "GOOFEE" site. I'm here to get real help from people who KNOW how to fix something, not just put a ban-aid on it. THANKS to all who contribute information.
Vette(s): 71 Colonnade Hardtop Coupe
Torch Red with black interior
originally L48 built to push around 360hp
This is a great post boss. I've learned to hate the word Google or YouTube. I'm getting customers tell me they googled how to fix their car and its not that bad of a job. I actualy had a customer come in with a YouTube link so I could watch a video. I come here looking for advise from those who have experience,just like I fix cars by expierence. I actually told the customer who gave me the link to bring his camera in and we can make a YT video. Been doing this for 42 years without watching movies ain't gonna start now.
