  1. Thanks for y'all's replies. I've been communicating with NCReatta in North Carolina. He's agreed to pay for the tow fees for the car. Glad it's not going to get scrapped and maybe at least the parts will bring new life to other Reattas.
  2. The tow yard owner seems reasonable. I think he understands how rare these cars are and doesn't want it to get scrapped either. He's even willing to tow the car nearby for $50 or so. Too far he'll probably charge more. If you have a tow truck or a means to tow the car that will work too. Unusually this tow lot owner seemed quite nice. I can help load it onto a trailer if you need. So far the cost is $284.87 today, Thursday.That goes up $20.64 each day at midnight.I will hand off the title to whoever wants it and I'll give you the paperwork to transfer the title. Unfortunately I don't have pictures. It was stored at a friend's house and I haven't seen it in some time. The last time I saw it, it was pretty bad inside, and since then someone broke the side window. The tow yard won't let me inside to take pictures so it's going to have to be sight unseen. I know it sucks to not be able to see it. It really will be a parts car, unless one of you guys are keen to give it a really good restoration, which, despite its condition I think would be worth it. It was truly a wonderful car when I had it.
  3. Yeah. Uhaul has a trailer dolly. The Reatta does't run but I think it rolls okay. I'd certainly help you to get it loaded if I can. https://www.uhaul.com/videos/Trailer-Videos/How-To-Load-A-Car-Onto-A-Tow-Dolly/
  4. Yeah. I know. 😕 Kinda figured local would be better. Uhaul I think has something one can rent.
  5. My once beautiful Reatta stopped running a few years ago and I wasn't able to get it fixed. It got flooded and was sitting for some time. The city finally decided to tow it. I hate to see it get scrapped so I'd love to give it to someone local who can just pay to get it out of the tow yard. Honestly it's probably just going to be a parts car but if anyone is interested please message me asap. The clock's ticking. The tow yard is charging by the day. You'll need to pay to have it towed out of the yard too. I live in Houston. I have the title right here in my hand. I just don't want it scrapped. Alex
  6. Whoops. Doggonit. Front. I need the bumper, moldings and the fascia. Wait, is the fascia the part above the bumper? I need that. I guess I need the right side impact absorber too. Right side marker/turn signal light too, if anyone has one. I'm not sure about the left hand side. I'll find out after I take it off.
  7. I need a new bumper assembly for my black '91. Anyone have a parts car that they can pull one off of? Thank you.
  8. Sounds nice Daniel. Did you ever get around to doing it? Have any pics?

  10. What year? I am parting out an '89 and I have one.
  11. Sorry I didn't reply sooner guys. I've got a minor emergency going on here. The short answer for right now is that yes I do have all of the parts. I'll try to get back to you later on today with more details.
  12. I am parting out my '89 Reatta. Red body with a tan interior. Let me know what you need.
  13. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Please explain "DIN" (1 or 1.5). What does DIN indicate? </div></div> DIN is an abbreviation for Deutsches Institut für Normung, the German national organization for standardization. For some odd reason we use their standard for stereos. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DIN http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_7736 <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Head units generally come in either single DIN (180 x 50 mm panel) or double DIN (180 x 100 mm panel) size.

  14. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">See what it says for a '90 Riviera </div></div>Whoops, glad I didn't post that scathing reply I was about to give you <span style="font-weight: bold">F14CRAZY</span>. I thought you were telling me to try a 90 Reatta but you told me to try the <span style="font-weight: bold">Riviera</span>. I don't know why I didn't try that! I must be tired or something. Anyway, none of those JVC units work with the Riviera, neither the 90 nor the 91, according to Crutchfield. In fact, no head units with small screens fit. You have to go with the larger 7" models, which I don't want. Well, maybe. I'd have to be convinced. 'Course Crutchfield as I just found out isn't the end all be all for audio equipment. http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/ has a lot more brands, and many of them have 3.5inch DVD head units. No real search capabilities on that website though. It's going to be hard to find out which is going to work.
