      I saw a paisley vinyl top on a Chrysler, in a junkyard about a decade ago. It definitely wasn't an Imperial though- possibly a Newport, and it was late 60's-early 70's. My memory is hazy after all...

      I live in one of those places. I always leave my keys in the car while I'm filling up. And any time the car will be in sight. I just hate fumbling with keys all the time. Actually, they're in the...

      ^This is correct. I would call someone to figure out a breakdown of the estimate. If a part is being repaired rather than replaced, like that quarter panel, then any previous damage that adds to the...

      They had those, but they stopped making them a while ago.

      My '66 Mustang had mismatched replacement cables with the colors reversed too. It's an absolute miracle that I noticed this before I had to mess with the battery. I replaced those right away just to...

      Pretty much this. I bought my Outback at an Ohio dealer. I quickly realized they were just flipping wholesale cars without even going over them. You can't do that in NY. I only did it because it was...

      Is that a gun that flies out? It lands on the center crack of the driveway.

      THANK YOU! I'm glad someone else agrees with me. I disconnected the springs, and that made it better for short trips, but torture for long ones, so I cranked up the lumbar again. The foam doesn't...

      I owned a white-on-white 60K mile 1988 Lincoln Town Car for 5 weeks. The transmission in my beater Buick blew up, so I needed a cheap car. A new-car salesman had a customer who needed $1000 for a...

      A bit late, but some of the old turbo Sunbirds had small vents similar to the Trans Am ones. It may not be easy to find one of those in the junkyard these days though. The '94-96 Grand Prix GTP,...

      Back around 2005 I brought 2 van-loads of air-cooled VW parts back from Canada to New York. I had boxes and bins stacked, and my worst fear was them wanting to go through it all, but they didn't. I...

      They countered at $3200 today- the only difference being used doors vs. new doors which I can't really argue on a 9-year old car. However, if my shop says the labor to prep those doors goes over the...

      You must shop at the same U-Pull-It I do, because I always see your car in the parking lot! Do you also peel your inspection stickers off junk cars? :laugh:

      I daily drove (winters included) a 1978 Pontiac Grand Am from 2003-2006, and a 1983 Honda Accord from 2006-2010. Both were low-mileage cars to start. The Pontiac was fairly reliable, and the Honda...

      I just got a quote from a very reputable shop: $4000. That included paint blending and new OEM doors, since Subaru doesn't sell the skins. KBB is about $4800, and I'm sure they will lowball me, so...

      They accepted fault officially today. She told me they'll just write me a check right there just based on their estimate. Yeah...I'll be bringing one of my own. I know they can write supplemental...

      Bingo. What they can raise your rates for varies by state, and in some cases it's permitted so they take advantage of that. I'd drop any company that did that out of pure spite.

      If they total this car, I don't think they'd notice the rear cup holder replaced with a broken one.;)

      BTW, if you or anyone else sees my "white whale" for sale anywhere, let me know. It would be a...
