  1. Just got a notice that there is a Getrag 284 manual tranny available with all the goodies attached for only $400 on eBay. check it out here
  2. Try a different inspection station. Really. There is no law that says that you have to use any specific station, at least here in Va. Different inspectors have varied interpretations of the inspection laws. Unless it is a blatant and dangerous fault, some inspectors may seem it as trivial and pass it. And even if you get a rejection sticker, you do not have to take it back to that same station to get it re-inspected. Just scrape that "stinky-pinky" off and take it to another station. Worked for me multiple times. BUT, if you have a 1989, you can get antique plates, which DONT NEED an inspection sticker. I believe that cars 25 yrs old and older qualify for antique plates. I am assuming that by your location RVA you live here in the commonwealth.
  3. Came cross this on E bay, fellow is selling four TC's for one price, No Reserve, and at $1,000 seems like a bargain. I'd buy them, but don't have a place to put them all.
  4. While searching on the local Craigslist, I came across on what may, and I say May, be a 16v car for parts or salvage. I say that because of the badge on the side front fender. No pics of vin were provided, but the seller wants 2k or offers. Could be a great parts car/ Located in Waldorf Md.
  5. I am in need of various interior parts--Royal cabernet color. Anyone have a parts car??
  6. Cruising thru Craigslist I found a dealer with three TC's for sale, at really cheap prices. Check them out DEALER RETIRING - ALL INVENTORY MUST BE SOLD BY JUNE 22nd. Reasonable offers will be taken and unreasonable offers will be considered.
  7. Great!! Can you post some good pics of it? Also, tell us what it needed, and other info.
  8. This is called good marketing. Some of the parts are a good deal, some are not. Before ordering, double check the prices vrs eBay. Sometimes Ebay is a lot cheaper. Also, make SURE that the parts are definitely a fit for your year and model. Just because they say it will fit doesn't mean it really will. I wrote a article about this on this forum earlier in the year, check it out for the full story.
  9. Ok, I took your advice, and it is now listed on E-Bay. Take a look!
  10. One of the best things about our cars being nearly 30 years old is that you can register them as antiques ( in my state) and pay very little regarding insurance and taxes, However, this comes at a cost, in that you can only legally drive them a limited # of miles per year. That said, mine are left sitting a lot. How much of todays formula gas should be left in the tank to prevent problems? Should we keep it full to avoid condensation, or keep as little as possible in to keep it from going bad? I personally keep less than 1/8 full, and add fresh gas every time I use them. What do you think?
  11. There is one on ebay for sale that is running, #204067, add that one to the list..........
  12. Is there any way to glean thru the various states DMV files to locate how many are left? Searching for the particular year or engine code?
  13. Nice looking 89 TC at the Bakersfield Calif Co part auction. Interior looks great, 89k on odometer. Red! Sale is 4-27 Could be a great deal for someone
  14. I have two that are running, but the like button only registered one.....
  15. Spring is here, and it's time for me to thin out the fleet. The wife wants the garage back, and I want ( not need) to sell my '89 TC with only 16k miles. Thought it was a keeper, but I found two 16v's that I like better. I have had good luck, and some bad luck, with E-bay, but a site such as Bring-a-trailer seems to have some merit. Not looking for astronomical top prices, but somewhere around 5K. The car really is a garage queen, all original with some of the carpet protector still unremoved. How would you sell this car if you owned it? I want a clean sale, without a lot of hassle and haggling.
