I am getting close to retirement. I wanted to do something for our Police Brethren who put there lives on the line for us everyday. I, for one, am disturbed by the growing contempt towards these gentlemen for political gains and retribution towards those deemed as the “enemy “. This corvette was owned by police officer killed in the line of duty that lived in my development. He left behind a wife and 3 children. I did not know this man personally, except for the wave and cold drink offered as he patrolled our area. My wife is the HOA President and worked with the Officers wife through the association. She is now faced with raising 3 teenaged children by herself. A handful of us have helped however we can. Obviously selling the Vette was not an easy decision. The cost of upkeep and maintenance of this car just is not possible for her with limited income. I would like to build a tribute car for fallen Officers. I have interest in my area. A local shop has offered to work on the car for free as long as I pay for the parts. I have a cage already donated. Working on other safety items. A local tire shop has offered tires at just above cost. I have an appointment with a local Chevrolet dealership for some sponsorship. There is some issues with the Fallen Officers Fund that needs to be worked out. Hope to hear from them soon on how to move forward. I have no Guarantee on if all will come together. It does seem to be gaining strength. I will need some help with this build. I am not very knowledgeable on the C4 Vette. So…..a few questions for the Forum Jockeys. ANY help will be appreciated. The car is 1996 LT4 ZF 6 speed with the Z51 package. The motor leaks oil from everywhere except the Optispark. The wheel bearings need replaced. All the Bushings need replaced. The electrical system is……..well not as horrid as European models but it’s bad. At idle the Speedometer will go from 0 mph to 4, 5, 3, 6 mph at a stand still. The interior lighting is possessed by demons. Nothing that cannot be overcome. At 540 points it will not be competitive. If someone has a game plan to get this C4 under 500 points let me know how to accomplish this. It will need a road race oil pan at 25 points to live for an entire race. Do I claim the car as an 88? Does anyone make a wiring harness for the C4? I cannot find a stand alone harness for the motor. The serpentine belt system is not very conducive to removing AC or modifications for no points. Suggestions?
