I am Mel,live in Los Angeles county, have a 56 and a 62 and belong to a local SACC chapter. 56 is down with a broken axle. Pretty sure cause was a 5:13 posi and big slicks. 62 is also down with a bent rod.
Tell about yourself and your car (s). Thanks

I am Larry. My 58 is doing quite well as the original 283/230 hp, single 4 barrel, power glide, stock rear end hasn't been driven over 3000 rpm. Plain Jane but it can be exercised occasionally when I can squeeze my old joints into the space needed to sit in the seat. There are still a few of us lame ducks out here.

Hi Larry. A few years back we did the San Antonio, Austin. Luckenbock, New Branfels etc loop. Great time.
I have learned that leaving cars sit is just not a good thing so glad to see you drive it.
Any other Vettes in your area? Coffee get togethers on Sat. am?

We have a 57 and a 61. The 57 has a 57 265 block w/64 heads, 2x4 carbs, 4 spd. Don't know the history. It's a driver, but not often. Just found some 997 heads to go with an un-found correct block. The 61 is our cross country car. Crate 350, tremic 5 spd, A/C, both tops, aftermarket radio. We've driven it to the NCM from CA in 09, and Ontario, Canada in '11. We were planning on taking it on the caravan again in '14, but had leaking wheel brg. We are planning on taking it again in Aug. on the caravan to Bowling Green again. Great car.
