    Too much alcohol?

    Could be an alignment issue. How does the car track going down the road, any vibration or other issues, unusual tire wear?

    it pulls a little to the left but i figure it may be tire pressure...the real issue is when i hit the gas it squats and when i let off it raises up and moves left a little..

    Suspension bushings could be whipped, worn balljoints and tie rods... lots of things on older cars can make them handle like mush. I installed polygraphite bushings on ours and replaced everything else. It actually corners and handles real nice for a '70s car.

    You seem to be pretty knowledgable on these cars. I will definately be asking some questions when the process begins. This car turns a few heads, but it sure ain't fun driving it everyday.

    Best thing to do is grab a set of factory service manuals and then get a Corvette Assembly Manual for your year. They are invaluable for working on them. I am still chasing an idle gremlin with our car. Other than that, it runs and drives great.
