The owner of this 1967 Corvette got her out early this year! Concerned with the condition of the engine compartment, he brought us the car to remove the engine and do a complete detail. Before removing the engine, we performed a compression test on each cylinder. The cylinders were showing anywhere from 35psi to 75psi which says to us that the piston rings are worn out. We contacted the owner and he agreed that the engine needed to be rebuilt. After removing the engine and the accessory items, the machine shop picked up the engine and we started to detail the engine compartment.
1967 Corvette – “Lola”
“Well I left home just a week before, and I’d never ever kissed a woman before. But Lola smiled and took me by the hand, and said little boy I’m gonna make you a man.” – The Kinks
Progress is moving right along on “Lola”. Corey and Sam removed the rear deck last week and bonded in the new fiberglass panel. After doing some light body work on the rear deck area to shape the new part to the car, Sam and Corey started to remove the old hood surround. Upon removal of the hood surround, Corey and Sam started to grind on the bonding points.

Ed has been working hard on the 1959 Corvette. He started on the exterior by mounting the bumpers, installing the grille, front and side trim. Once the exterior items were completed, he turned his attention to the engine compartment. He masked and bagged the vehicle including the engine and painted the engine compartment black. After finishing up in the engine compartment, he installed the windshield and started to assemble the doors.
Almost finished with the 1968 Corvette! After installing the new steering column, Mike took the vehicle over to our alignment rack and performed a complete 4 wheel alignment. Afterwards, he took the vehicle outside to run and get to operating temperature to insure there were no leaks or overheating. The new seat belts arrived and were quickly installed, followed by the owner’s new plates for the state of NY!
Corey and Sam used our new vehicle hoists the other day to move the 1966 Corvette and place her on jack stands. After getting the vehicle positioned where they wanted it, they started to remove the front clip of the vehicle which is riddled with cracks and old bad repairs. After grinding and wedging the seams, they removed the entire front clip!
