I have a 1965 Bonneville convertible that I am in the process of restoring. I cannot figure out how to get the windshield wipers off. Can anyone tell me how to do it, or if there is a special tool? Thanks......Jeff
I have been comparing pricing of the same items in the Opgi and Ames catalogs and found that Opgi is significantly more than Ames on a lot of items.
I am wondering if the quality reflects the difference in prices?
All but 1 part is brand new so I mean, you got a point and they were thinking of something similar to this (if my memory serves). Wouldn’t have minded to see this, especially if that meant lower prices on new C7’s.
It’s growing on me and quickly. First sight, it didn’t do justice for me but love it more each time I see it.
Especially the spider version:
I wish they would have made the corvette a two car line-up by continuing to build the C7 along with the new C8. I admit that I don't know anything abput manufacturing costs, but GM already had the tooling for the C7 and wouldn't think any of it would able to be used on the C8, so they would have to have created all new tooling. I would assume you would have to open a whole new production line, however... they couldn't both be built on the same line.
I'm going to wait till I see a C8 in the flesh before I decide on the styling. Right now I'm leaning to the "slightly disappointed" side.
I do believe GM will keep the base price within a couple of grand of the current C7 base. They know this is a big deal and would not want all the negative press that would come their way with a base price a lot higher than a C7.
