    car nut all makes
  1. This is so tempting, but I have 18 cars as it is https://bham.craigslist.org/cto/6048559305.html
  2. The Parker brothers of Slidell LA are selling their father's estate, he had a fondness for mid 50s Cadillacs and Chevies. In addition to a nice 57 Chevy convertible ($38k needs floor patches), and a 1954 Caddy (60k-ish) red vert, they have a yard full of rusty parts cars, a 4 door Caddy that may be restorable, and a nice 1972 Olds 88 convertible. They are not parting them out, selling them whole ($200) or going to scrap yard, some have already gone, and some have not many good parts left, I took several pics of the yard cars. Email me (chevy55_geo at yahoo dot com) and I will send you a number to txt about a visit.
  3. This is a cool thread, no pics on this pc but old bicycles, around 9 Schwinn Stingrays, Apple Krate, Lemon Peeler, Orange Krate, Pea Picker, 1936 balloon tire Cadillac by Shelby, car ads from Life and other mags, cut some out of perfectly good National Geographics, license plates, or tags as they say here in the south, diecast cars and little HotWheels I liked, too bad not redline ones from 1970 when I played with them. I'm a hoarder also, car parts and cheap project cars, your garage is never big enough.
  4. Selling Titles

    I received one as a gift once, they are called "Historical Documents". I have a few, one from a 70 Nova I parted out, and one from a 66 Mustang Fastback from Florida, when I registered it in Alabama they gave me the title back, as they don't title cars before 1974.
  5. On a little known web site that I ran across, two Christmases ago wife and I were in Orlando area for a week and I found a set of 55 Chevy hubcaps for $30 on here. $30! Funny, because I recently got a 55. http://ocala4sale.com/classifieds/16640235510.php
  6. Looks pretty decent, 165k miles, on clist but dang if I can figure how to paste the link on this #$@#'n tablet, lousy touch screen keyboard anyhow
  7. The rear light looks similar to a Reatta. http://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/2016/01/26/mystery-midengine-the-fiero-shaped-clay-nobody-seems-to-know-about/?refer=musweekly

  9. Reatta's replacement

    I remember talking to a Goldwing mechanic in Alabama years ago, maybe 2004, we saw a T Bird, and he said he liked them, but he wouldn't buy one because they were only V6s. I didn't know much about them, then later I bought my wife a 2000 Jag S Type with a 3.0 V6. I was reading about them also having the Ford/Jag 4.0 V8, which was also in the T Bird, I thought maybe that guy had seen they have a 4.0 and he thought it was a 6. Some Jags in England came with a 6 speed I think, and the 4.2 S Type R had a supercharger, that's how to really pep up your Bird. The Jaguar forum has a lot of advice on engine problems that would apply to your Bird and Lincoln LSs, the 3.0 has a problem rubber elbow that causes vacuum leaks, and you have to pull the upper and lower intake manifold to get to it, as well as to access the right 3 plugs/COP.
  10. Good thing I'm car poor, this looks like a decent deal. http://neworleans.craigslist.org/cto/5241932517.html
  11. I don't get on here much, traded a Porsche 944 and $ for a 2004 Crossfire few months ago, have a project 66 GTO sitting in the yard, oh my, I'm turning into Padgett! I recently traded the Crossfire for a 1991 Lotus Elan M100, 106k miles, needs some TLC and paint job, window regulators are main thing. My wife didn't like the XF, I did, so I priced it high at $4900 with 196k miles, got an email from a guy with a stalled project and needing a daily driver, PO seems to have ADD like me, took door panels off and windows/regulators out before he found regulators, a headlight motor needs bolting back up, a lot of parts and pieces disassembled. It sat for a while and got dirty, the clear coat is peeling, had been rear ended and bumper repaired but still some small FG damage in trunk floor and rear quarters. Brakes are real weak but it drove on my trailer, has aftermarket muffler, AC is inop, sounds real nice. Maybe I'll have another XF some day, they are fun cars. I was just out sanding on the clear coat last night, fired it up for a while to listen to it, need to put some front brakes on it and start driving it, can't wait, it was a barn find that found me. I cleaned it with a little soap and water the other day, the water was so black. It came with the original wheels, I like them better than the 10 spoke wheels that are on it, although they might make good track wheels. They only imported about 500 of these into the US. It bumped it's cousin 1955 MG TF 1500 to the side of the garage.
  12. And Number 1 is.... 1988-91 Buick Reatta Coupe: The Reatta was designed to do for Buick what the Allante did for Cadillac, provide a halo car to get people into showrooms. And while the Reatta didn’t sport an Italian styled and crafted body like the Allante, it was assembled with great care in Lansing, Mich., at a specially created Reatta Craft Centre. Initially produced as a two-seater coupe, a convertible joined in 1990. The latter can get a bit pricey, but nice Reatta coupes aren’t too tough to find at five grand or less. Not bad for a genuinely rare piece of Buick history. http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2015/09/20/credit-card-classics-five-great-collectors-for-under-5000/?intcmp=hpff
  13. Pair 89s Pensacola CL

    Good thing I have too many cars http://pensacola.craigslist.org/cto/5168475775.html Two 1989 Reattas. The red one has 59,000 original miles. Runs and drives. Good body. All there. Needs a battery to start. Interior is rough....$1000. The black one is a bit rougher. It is complete. Needs a fuel pump to run....$500. Both have clear titles. Both have been sitting. I'll make a better deal if you want both.
  14. 1968 Buick GS350, California Special - $2800 (Irving, TX) http://dallas.craigslist.org/mdf/cto/5047527852.html
