  1. If all goes as planned we should be there around 4:30 PM.
  2. There are two different styles of remote covers. One with 4 tabs and one with 3. If you can take a photo of the back of your remote and email it to me, I can check and see what I have. Marck@eastcoastreatttaparts.com
  3. I'll be leaving NC on Saturday headed to Texas to rendezvous with some friends and their Reattas. Plan to pull out of Houston area Monday morning and take a leisurely drive up to Midwest City. We'll get in sometime on Tuesday
  4. Is this Frank Blizzards car?
  5. I have an extra hotel room at the La Quinta (across the parking lot from the host hotel) available Tuesday-Saturday night if anyone wants it. Contact me here or at 919.233.1973 and I can put your name on the reservation. The room is a King ADA-accessible room.

  7. Yes, as long as we know you're coming you can do whatever you like. We have some people coming directly from Tulsa already.
  8. I'll be there starting Tuesday. I'll have plenty of good parts with me. Due to limited space of traveling in a Reatta, some of the larger stuff will be by request only. The Rendezvous is Thursday afternoon and should be a good one on Route 66. The info is in your latest Reatta newsletter.
  9. If anyone has a king room at the host hotel they're giving up, please let me know. I'm booked now for two doubles but may give that up if I can't get a king. Thanks!
  10. J is an airbag sensor of some sort.
  11. I bought a 1992 Ultra several months ago. It had a similar issue and a full tank of premium solved it. It also solved a stuttering issue it had on take off.
  12. They were testing the new PPG waterbourne paint. It was also cutting edge at the time to use the robots they were using to paint the cars. From what I've heard from Craft Centre employees, the bodies we're actually sold to PPG prior to paint, PPG would paint them, and then sell them back to GM only after a satisfactory paint job was achieved. This way, if PPG messed something up in their "experimental" process, it would fall on them and GM wouldn't have that loss. Sadly, we know now that waterbourne paint doesn't have quite the longevity of solvent based options. Though it is a lot more environmentally friendly. Attached is a photo of a mug I received from a former employee of the Craft Centre. It says a lot for a little mug.
  13. If we're collecting Y-job photos, here's the Y with the Avenir Concept at the 2015 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. Pictured with Ed Welburn, GM VP of global design at that time.
