Who doesn't want big fat wheels on their muscle car? More grip, better braking, and a big improvement for putting power down. The 1968 Corvette however is a one year only car in a lot of regards, and has a lot of specific limitations to know. Be forewarned, there's a lot of sporadic information on how to upgrade your C3 corvette. Very little of it is specific to the 1968 Corvette. For example, the simplest article on it is "More Bite for Old Sharks which contains information on how to make the most of OEM sized wheels.

When I first got the Corvette, I often wondered just what the heck I'd do with it. What do you do with a muscle car exactly? I thought about autocross or drag racing and all that other silly non-sense, but in the end it settled into just being a really fun vehicle to take on roadtrips. Unfortunately, as I began to take the Corvette on road trips I quickly discovered a major shortcoming of having 400+hp monster with sidepipes and a 4 speed transmission... this sucker is LOUD. It spins 3,000 rpm @ 70mph.

I picked up an "assault rifle" in 308/7.62nato, an Adams Arms SF308 patrol enhanced specifically. I'd been eyeing one for quite some time, but the price combined with political urgency never really lined up. Finally a manufacturer I love (very truly innovative technology at great prices) came forward with an amazing firearm, and the political urgency is there (Clinton will win, she dislikes firearms, plus Oregon/Washington is going anti-gun) so I picked it up. Shortly thereafter, I went shooting at the local gun range.

Unfortunately for me, the winter car progress of 2015/2016 started off with a bang. Okay, more of a knocking. I went out to the Beach Barons Rod Run in Longbeach Wa with my Girlfriend. While out there, the car developed a faint tinging sound under acceleration. Metal on metal, it sounded like my fan had come loose. Not something beyond the realm of possibility for this car. Unfortunately, tightening up the fan bolts did nothing and the knocking became deafening under acceleration. Alas, I had rod knock.
