  1. The new TOU has a list of offenses that CL can charge you for if they occur. They actually have dollar values attached to them (like $4.00 per offense). I found it very strange that they broke things down that way.
  2. I just tried to log into my CL account and was greeted by a delightful new Terms of Use agreement for me to sign. Seems like there are now a multitude of ways for them to collect penalties for a variety of offenses. I haven't digested them all yet, but was wondering if others got this notice and what they think about it.
  3. Good used 'driver' condition with a few pits. Has all pins, but one is a little short. $20.00 including shipping in the lower 48 states.

  7. Here's an original 2-volume set of the 1949-1959 Ford Car Parts and Accessories Catalog. One volume is for 'text' (has part number and applications listings) and the other volume(illustrations) has 'exploded views' of the parts. The covers are somewhat worn and dirty from age and use, and each book has its title written on the page edges so technicians knew what book is on the shelf. Inside pages are relatively clean. See pictures for more details. This is one of the most valuable references for anyone who repairs or restores Ford cars from this era. $53.00 postpaid by Media Mail in the lower 48 States. PayPal is OK.

  10. There are many body shops that prep their customers' cars and send them to Maaco. The customer pays 'body shop retail'. I was a service writer at a Ford dealer in the 1980's and Ford was paying dealers about $1,700.00 per car for repaints due to paint problems. Our in-house body man would prep 'em and ship 'em to Maaco for far less than $1,700.00. One owner stopped in to ask about progress on her car, which was taking more time than anticipated. She smiled and said to me 'are they running slow at Earl Scheib?' I looked her in the eye and said 'We'd never send a car there'. Little did she know......
  11. Chrysler products had left-hand threads until 1970.
  12. We recently sold our 2006 Dodge Stratus with the dreaded 2.7 V6. It had 197,000 miles and was running strong.
  13. Great softcover training manual from 1978 covering the theory, operation, and repair of automotive brake systems. The pages are 8" x 11" and the book is about 3/4" thick. The book is in nice, lightly-used condition. $14.00 postpaid by Media Mail in the lower 48 States. Harold
  14. This manual was published by McQuay-Norris in 1975 and explains the operation and repair of steering and suspension. Has 60 pages with lots of photos and diagrams. Very good condition. $15.00 postpaid in USA.
