Re: Official Tampa, FL Area Thread

Finally going to be on the hunt for parts this weekend. Looking for a tilt steering column and a engine bay C100 harness from a 89 IROC, heater core, and some type of decent SBC heads probably L98 or something.

Re: Official Tampa, FL Area Thread

Motor is out, and I'm starting to disassemble it. Still need to find heads and pick out a cam. I also need to do some verification on what year my motor was made so I can get the correct rebuild kit for it as well.

Possibly, are those the 113 castings from the Corvette? How much are you looking for?

I thought I read somewhere the aluminum ones were junk. But I guess I've got no choice but to get one.

Re: Official Tampa, FL Area Thread

i can't see why aluminum would be junk? people use aluminum radiators all the time.

if you still have your brass one, and want to stay brass, you could have it repaired at a radiator shop. if you go on facebook, theres a group, "tampa bay's racing junk". look for a guy named jared convetero, (sorry, dont know the exact spelling of his last name), he ALWAYS has 3rdgens being parted out.

Yeah, I see your point. $26 for a heater core isn't bad.

Matt, you recently bought a third gen again and neglected to post details or pictures? Don't make us wait for a meet to get to see it!

I am hoping to schedule a meet sometime in August. Who is down for that? I need locations of those who WILL actually attend so I can choose a middle area for us to meet. Also, spread the word. It has been a few years since we had a Florida meet and I'm looking forward to it.

I'm not looking to do another FT. De Soto meet, just go to a restaurant and meet up. It has been a few years since we had a meet and I'm looking forward to it.

Late August might work. I've got a due date of August 10th for my first kid.
