I bought a Wrecked Auction Corvette - Will it RUN AND DRIVE?

Reddit
I bought a stolen, recovered, salvage title, auction corvette. It's a 1998 Corvette Convertible. That's seems fine. Nope. Will it run? Probably not. If it does, we'll feed'r the onions!

    Do a "Binky" on it and shoehorn the engine and drivetrain into a Mini, then go and race against the Bad Obsession boys

    Well, I'd figure out how to get the top up....so that I could park it outside....and do so. Save it for when you need a powertrain. Or to take a burn.

    Might be smart to look at other corvettes of the same year to see how radiator, fans, air induction plastic stuff goes together. I’m on my 4th corvette. Had a C4, C5, C6 and now a C7. C7 has been the best. All of the earlier ones my right leg would get toasted on the commute to work 60 miles in Texas in the summer. Had C6 up to 160 miles mph on newer concrete state highway, one time. You can only jack on the sides in front of rear wheels. I was cringing when you were floor jacking it from the back. All of those plug in deals attach to fans, sensors, egr etc. too much technology. Front wheels are different size than rear like 18 and 19 inches. Good luck. Never had a convertible.

    Do what you always do. Pull that baby straight as you can with a few tractors or whatever you have around at the time. Tune up the rest with bailin wire, tape, and self tappers, and make a damn race car.

    I own a 98 C5 exact color as this one! I know it’s wrecked but I cringed at how you slid and banged those parts across the trunk and paint, I hate those fixed head lights they put on it, I’d like to have that car for a parts car, it runs strong! Who would let this car go to shit like this, the interior 🤢 those LS1s are bullet proof, my friend twin turboed his with 150,000 miles on it , hammers on it and still runs good, no knock no smoke!

    By the sounds of its looooong & rather illustrious n' retched provenance, that ride most likely belonged to the C.I.A?... -Ive seen em, such vehicular contrivances are prone to getting one in big troubs. PERFECT vehicle for V.G.G!...;) ~Better check the vehicles spare tire for those remaining few kilos of misplaced/forgotten cocaine, counterfeited bearer-bonds &/or Iver Johnson built firearms that somehow missed the serial number stamper thingee.... -You might be safe if its missing the "SecretAgentMan" driver side, console, castor oil filled mister bottle w/a line thru the firewall, then on into the hole & metal nipple drilled into the exhaust manifold.... -EVERYONE needs a "Do It Yo'Self" smokescreen @ times? ~ Company men doubly so....
