Vette(s): Used to own a 1979 Corvette now owned by JB79
This is why I love C3VR....
one of our members (kstyer) rebuilt my carb for me. I shipped it out to him, he fixed it up, shipped it back. Then, I had some trouble with it tonight, so I called him and he walked me through, step-by-step, patiently troubleshooting with me until we found the problem and fixed it.
Now, obviously this story specifically involves Ken, but without C3VR I likely would have never met him. And on top of that, I've had help from numerous members over the almost 6-1/2 years of C3VR's existence... kstyer, Adam's Apple, 82dukman, 4webers, stingrayjim... just to name a few. These people treat me like I'm a lifelong buddy. They don't treat me like I'm an idiot when I prove that I have NO idea what I'm doing! And I know, that any one of you would treat me the same way if I came to you for help.
You guys often thank me for running the site... but really, I just provide the platform on which you all do your thing and make C3VR what it REALLY is! A great community of C3 Corvette enthusiasts sharing and helping each other with the joy (and pain) of C3 ownership!

Let's see ya get that kind of service from the CAC!!!
That's one of the greatest things about this "club"...you CAN call other members if ya need to, and get the help/info ya need, or at least get pointed in the right direction.
If it weren't for C3VR, we'd ALL be much less fortunate.

All I need is time and money! Getting there!
I added to the link post. Now you know what the problem was, and what it can be.
I really enjoyed rebuilding the carb for Adam. And I will be glad to do it for anyone else. It makes me happy to help.
Many have helped me so much here. Most notably when Debbie got sick. The support was fantastic. As most of you know, my funds are quite limited. But we remember. When Stingray Jim got sick, Debbie made him an afgan to keep warm with. Nothing like home/handmade.
We take care of each other. This is my extended family. Even when I'm not on much, I really NEED you folks. I thank you all and offer my help where I can.
Besides, Adam started this family, so that makes him "Dad" dispite the fact I am a bit (okay quite a bit) older than him. Gotta help the old man .
