  1. 91 Roadster lurches to the right and dives down somewhat when brakes are applied .... Upon initial application. Car has been in storage for a good while. I tried lightly applying brakes while accelerating and it cured situation briefly but re appeared within a few blocks
  2. Thank Ya 2seater !!!!! Nic
  3. Walmart has Mobil 1 "5W-30 Extended Performance Full Synthetic" oil on sale with a $15.00 rebate for 5 qt. container. 5 quarts total $9.37 after rebate. Question/s Please: I have 1 coupe with 140k 1 roadster with 68k 1 roadster with 45k *Should I buy the oil for 1 or all of above? Thanks Folks !!!
  4. Does anyone know the nomenclature/numbers on the round "bulb/tube" for the sign please. Hesitant to take sign apart before ascertaining if a "bulb" is available...... Thanks !
  5. OK - I still wondered....the recycler I called was run/owned by.....females :). They quoted me $0.25 a pound or about $5 - 6.00 a wheel. I just decided to call another recycling yard.........depending on the true weight of course....@ a $0.55 quote per pound I imagine the 4 wheels are ..... really ..... probably worth $45.00 to $50.00. Mr. Finn, With that return you could take the Mrs. to dinner more that a couple of times I would think
  6. Why for how come cans are worth something, and the wheels not ? Many years ago I remember a fellow that worked for me took several wheels to a recycler, and received 22-23.00 each......is there magnesium or something maybe mixed in with the aluminum lowering the value ?
  7. Good Grief Charlie Brown.......or Jim Excellent tree display for sure. The Arbor Day Foundation would probably find the picture interesting..... I was just holding on to the wheels for when I traveled close to the recycler - I was under the impression that the metal had some value - Wrooooong. I will put a "for free" posting on the NextDoor site.
  8. For some reason I have been hoarding 4 ..... 90 model wheels for years. I thought when I had time I would trailer them to a recycling location 30 miles away. I called the recycler, and out of curiosity asked what they would bring cash wise.....answer was $0.25 a pound........Is that right ? Any other suggestions of what I can do with them please? Thanks !
  9. Well Folks, Years ago (maybe 2012-14) I picked up a SS badge for a very reasonable price (don't really remember the price but it was "cheap") because I had bought a SS and with intentions of keeping it. My thoughts were that even then it was supposedly rare.....and if I did have the misfortune of some front end damage I would not have to hunt one down. And besides, I do have right much Reatta memorabilia. Since the topic was being discussed anyway, I was just curious as to what one was ..... really ..... worth these days.
  10. Hi Folks, Just out of curiosity ...... Jim, Barney, or other knowledgeable member/s, what is a reasonable (if can be found) price one should pay for SS hood emblem/ornament please? And Thanks !
  11. Wow and Thank You Padgett. I may have to close this thread due to something out of my control.... I will write you a PM to explain Nic
  12. Wow Y-JonFan.....Thank you as well - you might have brought something up. The rear bow has always been very difficult/hard to engage - that is the pins in the bow with whatever is in the "top cover" or receivers that engage. I always have heard something like a solid click. However at some point within the last couple of years I do remember seeing a small amount of daylight in the right inside corner part of the bow seal/gasket after raising the top. I lowered and re raised the top and did not see it again. I will definitely take another look at this as well - that is again raise and lower the top a few times to check. I will also do an extensive water hose procedure.... I am not sure where it is and even how to use it, but many years ago I bought a special wrench - adjusting tool for the top bow pins or receivers........
