  1. A couple of days ago I was driving around in the blue coupe when the car just stopped.๐Ÿ˜ฎ I tried restarting it but it just cranked without catching. After a couple of tries it died altogether; nothing when I turned the key. I had the car towed to my mechanic. From what the mechanic could figure out the drive belt tensioner failed, the serpentine belt broke up, took out the crank balancer and sensor and fried the ignition control module.๐Ÿ˜ฉ
  2. The point is, if you truly want to sell your car, you don't diss it in your for sale ad.๐Ÿ™„
  3. Do you mean M&R in Saginaw? ๐Ÿค” I just spoke to a gentleman there and he said they still repair cassette decks and cd players from older cars: Tape players run about $100-$150 and cd players $150 and up. I have also been looking for other sources to no avail.๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  4. Here's the same side exhaust manifold from a '90 Reatta.
  5. Ronnie, Your fairness and involvement as moderator were much appreciated. Thanks for taking the time for helping to make this a great forum. I'm glad you will still be around as a member.๐Ÿ˜€
  6. Thanks guys, I'll tug harder.๐Ÿคฃ
  7. This photo is the back side of the trunk, light and fuel door switch connections inside the glove box on a '90 vert. I can't get the connections to separate. I've given pretty good tugs and don't see any plastic tabs to break. Do I just need to tug harder?๐Ÿค” Use pliers? Thanks, S.
  8. Fascinating stuff. I noticed the third from last 1991 was donated to Portland Community College (OR), then transferred out. Barney, a new project for your spare time.๐Ÿ˜Š
  9. You would think a name like Hemmings would respect some honesty and research in it's advertising.๐Ÿคจ
  10. My congratulations also Brenda. ๐Ÿš— You deserve it. Beautiful Car!๐Ÿ˜
  11. I've bought and sold stuff on the Buy/Sell part of the Forum. I've also bought Reatta parts from the main suppliers listed in Resources. I have always trusted these sources; I'm sure it's because these people (you) are my "buds". ๐Ÿ˜ Most of you I'll never meet, however I feel a special bond with people, of all walks of life, who are fascinated with this incredible automobile. ๐Ÿš™ It is from the members whose ads I expect to see in the B/S section. It seems it has worked well this way for many years. I believe it's a matter of trust, or, as we used to say in Queens in the 1960's, I know where you live.๐Ÿ˜Ž I know how to get to EBay or Rock Auto or Amazon or any of the myriads of parts suppliers waiting to take my buck who don't know the difference between the 1990 and the 1991 Reatta brake systems. So Ronnie I think I agree with many here that the B/S should be more hometown.
  12. Or you could go this route. Same Camaro muffler.
  13. Ronnie, Let me add my name to those who think you are doing a great job and appreciate all your efforts to help the Forum exist. Every organization needs someone to keep it on the straight and narrow. I'm sorry if some have taken exception to what is your job. You've always seem to be fair and polite and we can't ask for more. RONNIE IN 2019! ๐Ÿ˜„
  14. Gotcha there!๐Ÿ˜„ There are never enough tools.๐Ÿš˜ It is a fantastic work space. Your wife really must love you.๐Ÿ˜Š
