  1. The plate on the front is from 1928. Need help identifying the make, model and year of the car. Believed to be a Rolls Royce. Not sure about anything else!
  2. Really close - looks like a winner!
  3. No guesses? Is the car too generic looking?
  4. In a dog forum onFacebook they are trying to ID the dog, but the person also was looking for an ID of this car. Thought I’d bring it to the experts!!
  5. Don't know how I missed this Barney - your '39 is GORGEOUS!!!!!
  6. Hi All, As you may or may not know, we just bought a 90. We pulled out the radio because it wasn't working. Someone had removed the tape deck and cut the wires as opposed to just pulling the plugs (see photo attached). I'm not sure if these wires are needed for the radio module to work. Can someone please advise how to test the radio module? I don't know why there are idiots out there that did what they did to this radio just to remove the tape deck! It blows me away why people are so destructive. ?
  7. Perfect @vwlfan !!!! Thank you SO MUCH! ?
  8. Cleaning the contacts worked like a charm!! A million thanks!!
  9. Stupid question, but what is used for 'contact cleaner'?
  10. Yes! That's the one! One owner, garage kept, but the owner let a few things slide but they are all pretty easy fixes from what we see. Got a great price on it as well. ? Driftwood has always been my favorite color so I was pretty excited.
  11. ^^^ This. I use to be able to search the forums quite easily. That is no longer the case. You can't even use the car name to try and narrow down the search because then EVERY SINGLE THREAD with that car name comes up. Sooo frustrating. Thanks all. Looks like there's not much to be done for it. ?
  12. I'm sorry if this subject has been beaten to death but I am having a very difficult time using the search function (haven't been on the forums in a while and everything has changed!)..... We bought a 1990 driftwood today with 77,800 miles on it. There are several issues, but I'm not going to put that all in one post (that would be very bad). The one we'd like to try and tackle first is the climate control. Currently the only function that seems to work are the "off" button and the "auto". The temperature control will not go up (only down), the heater button, bi-level, front and
  13. Hello! I am having a mighty hard time finding anything using the forums 'search' function. I recall that we used to be able to only search specific forums. Now when I try to search it pulls information from ALL forums using the key words. Is there some kind of tutorial? Thanks!
  14. Hello, I'm not a vendor but we have 40 Chevy parts we could possibly bring. Could you please define "junk"? Are you saying you are only interested in re-chromed parts? Or are you interested in parts that need to be/can be re-chromed? Do you have any parts you have duplicates of that you'd be will to sell i.e. windshield wipers, arm rests, hood nose trim piece etc?
  15. We performed the 'operation' today and after a test drive filled with quick stops I can report SUCCESS. However, my ABS light, which has been on for some time, is STILL on. But right now I'm just happy about the straight braking.

One is sure to work. Try him. </div></div> Okay, I was just reading the service manual and it instructs one to take off the hydraulic unit before taking off the valve block... if Jim grabbed 2 of them, then I'm assuming he did NOT take off the hydraulic unit and just took off the 3 retaining nuts to remove the valve block. Correct? Is the manual making it more difficult

  18. oooohhh - Thanks! We're going to make the switch today - glad I was reading threads this morning!

  20. Hmmmm... GM Parts Direct has the Valve Block listed for $487 - YIKES! We have an '88 parts car - would the '88 valve block fit an '89?
  21. I did a search for the words "pulling to the left" and got this thread. Since it's from 2000 I thought maybe someone would have some more thoughts on this problem. My '89 pulls to the left when I have to do a quick hard brake when driving, and even then it's not every time - maybe 50% of the time? Needless to say it's a bit aggravating and I would LOVE to be able to find out what's making it happen. Anyone solve a problem like this?

  23. 42 Bought my first Reatta in '04 after my boyfriend bought his - I thought the CRT was soooooo cool and I thought the car was so comfortable and roomy - plus, I've always liked the looks of them. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/ooo.gif" alt="" /> Now my BF has 2 (one is a parts car) and I have 2. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> One day I hope to own a driftwood convertible. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />
  24. Wow, this thread has been going for over a year! <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> Out of curiosity, how many cars have you sold since you started it Randy?
