  1. Ya done good Lamar. Now get out there and enjoy your retirement. I pick up my RV in a few weeks so maybe I'll see you out there although primarily I am on the west coast. God Bless you Buddy! Greg
  2. I have found Ragg Topp products to work very well when used as directed for convertible top cleaning and maintenance.
  3. "See here, and here, and here? This is why you shouldn't use a hammer to put the hubcap on."
  4. While in this case the area code is correct for where the cars are, with number portability the area code could be anywhere.
  5. It would be nice to know where these cars are.
  6. Wow! Nice hidden headlights!
  7. It is one of the first ABS systems and it is controlled by computer technology from the late 1980's. Add in hard to find parts like accumulators and wear items like wheel sensors make servicing/repair problematic. Not impossible, just problematic.
  8. Actually that part is true. It was the singularly most expensive $300 car I have ever owned. The restoration took place in 2003.
  9. Years ago I was restoring a '69 Riviera. The gas tank had a huge dent in it so I wandered down to my parts car to check the condition of that one. I found someone in the past had removed the trunk inspection plate and the sender but the tank was in good condition. I dropped the tank and walked it back to the shop. As I carried the tank I heard something metallic and heavy rolling inside the trunk. I got out my flexible gripper and fished out the remnants of a locking gas cap someone had pried off. I also saw a piece of what looked like yarn so I grabbed it with my gripper and surprisingly it had some heft to it. To my surprise it was a good sized rat soaked in gasoline. Evidently he climbed through the access hole and couldn't get out. My buddy came out of the shop and observed the rat. He nudged it with his toe and all of a sudden the rat jumped up and ran full tilt to the end of the driveway. We ran to it and again he nudged it with his toe but this time he had no response. "Is he dead?" my friend asked. "Naw" I replied, "He's just run out of gas". Some of this is true!
  10. I live in Redmond, WA which is next to Kirkland. If legit, (doesn't look like it) I'd be pleased to go look at it for you. PM me and I'll give you my contact info. Greg
  11. It would be nice to know where this beautiful car is.
  12. I'd like to add my voice to those in support of Ronnie. My Reattas have been gone for several years but I still lurk here daily just to see if I can impart some wisdom where needed. They are great cars and having this forum to keep them on the road is wonderful. Ronnie, you are doing a great job as moderator and I support you 100%. Greg
  13. Marty, Reatta convertibles didn't come with a hard top. There are some pictures floating of an aftermarket hardtop I think was made by ASC but no one has owned up to actually seeing one. Bill, an ad without a price is like a cake without icing. I won't pursue ads without pricing because I assume that the seller is asking too much and doesn't think I woill notice. It is a nice car but the advice about selling prices is a good one. Reattas typically don't command high prices and less so if they are higher mileage or have problems. The headlight fix is cheap and easy, you would be well advised to get it done rather than discount your price because of it. Good luck with your sale but POST YOUR PRICE!
