  1. would you do $45.00 including shipping ? ( u can email me at lethal712@yahoo.com with address ) I can have Chase bank send u a ck. direct , then u can ship it !
  2. I forgot to ask what year is the console lid.how much to ship to zip 85354 ( Tonopah Az. )
  3. Not only was the car & truck museum in Auburn IN.glad to get the prototype,they took it on the road to display it in Mi.They had it displayed in a tent in the main part of the show! I as glad to see it !!
  4. Barney has the #s I always let him know when I get another ,or come across one in a scrap yard !
  5. looks like the top of the keys that have the key # on that u take off the keys !
  6. I know there are more reattas than are registered,as I have 10 ( 8 good ones,2 for parts , 1 registered, that I drive every day ! ( just turned 321,000 miles )
  7. In AZ. you can get a antique or " plate the same year as the car " ,but the registration is not permernent and has to be renewed every 2-5 years ! What is bad here is once you register a car ,they make you pay the registration fee for every year ,even if you don't use it ! They won't give you a " title only " any more ! You used to be able to get a title only for $4.00 . Most of the Reatta I have were bought before this law came out ( about 2 or more years ago ) I guess the only way to get out of this is to not apply for a new title ,or if you already have it in your name , tell them you sold it ! ( I am not going to pay every year for a car not used , or a parts car ! )
  8. I like everything about the reatta ! No one mentioned it , but for the size of the car,it has a big trunk and lots of room in back of the seats for storage ! I was driving a 1976 corvette,and the gas prices were going up,so I started driving a 1986 Fiero 4 cyl. 5-speed .It got great mpg,but no room for anything ! I always liked the Reatta,but the prices were too high. I bought my 1989 about ten years ago for $4200.00 & put new struts on it. When I bought it , it had 164,000 miles on it ! It now has 318,000 on it.I had the trans rebuilt at 259,000 , but other than that,just the regular things that are needed. I now have 8 (inc 2 verts) & 2 for parts! The only thing I did to the engine was to replace the com sensor magnet !
  9. MERRY CHRISTMAS to you ! I Like the picture with the REATTA with the old car CHRISTMAS scene ! Thanks for your good work!
  10. I saw this car at silver auction in nov -17 in phx. bid to $11,000 did not sell !
  11. Yes that happened to me also,I jumped out and disconnected the battery , then someone told me to put the key in the door and turn to unlock ,and the horn quit !
  12. It is red & tan - I put the vin on Barnys data base ! Body is good- CRT was broken - rt door panel ok - all glass good ! rt seat ok - console cover bad ! good tail light
  13. Just to let you know,there is a 1988 Reatta in PHX. Pull & Save junk yard on 27th ave that has a good windshield ! ( for $45.00 ) I have 2 spares so someone else can get a good deal !
  14. Glad you had a good trip ! I just made a trip from Phx.AZ. to Michigan & back ! The only trouble I had was a bad tire (had to buy a new one ). When I got back I had 302,887 miles on the clock ! I took tools,and a xtra belt,alternator,crank sensor. This is a 1989, my daily driver.I also have a 1989 with 67,000 miles that stays in the garage most of the time ! I had the transmission rebuilt at 259,000 miles , but haven't done anything to the motor!
