Auto Electrician C3's

Not every auto electrician enjoys the challenge of working on C3 Corvettes. This makes Logan Priest special in the eyes of 69-82 Vette owners as he knows these cars inside out - electrically speaking.

Logan Priest Auto Electrical is located at 18 Gibbs Street, Wynnum. Phone 3893 4155

Older Corvette Wheel Alignments

Unfortunately, you just can't take an older Corvettes C1, 2 & 3 to any old wheel 'n' tyre shop to have a wheel alignment done. These older cars use metal shims amongst other methods to align the front and rear wheels and few people are experienced or could be bothered taking the time to perform this work properly. Rears need to be realigned if you've completed work on suspension or rubbers while fronts should be aligned after any modification including tyre fitting, following a kerb bump or every few years to help maintain even tyre wear.

Members of the Qld Corvette Club recommend Big Tread Tyre & Auto at 1440 Old Cleveland Road, Capalaba corner Green Camp Road. Phone 3823 2711ask for the proprietor: Brook (he's a U.S. car nut)

Air Conditioning & Radiator - service / rebuilds

Multiple club members have had positive experiences with AUTO AIR and RADIATORS in Unit 2, 1440 New Cleveland Rd, Capalaba. Tim Murrihy is very friendly and obliging. He is next door to Big Tread Tyre and Auto (see Wheel Alignment above) or online at
