      Heh, first time I've been on here all day, and I find this :P I've been sitting here reloading the snow maps to see if NYC is really going to get their 2-3 feet.

      Anyway, I'll try not to write the...

      Thanks, this is the kind of information I was looking for. I pulled up the parts sheets and it looks like there are quite a few suspension parts that are different from the standard Lumina, including...

      For a daily driver, I prefer cars with more basic specs. I already owned an old Buick with power everything where nothing worked most of the time. I like the idea of the simplicity of the Lumina...
    4. Tell me about: '98-99 Lumina 3.8 police package

      I'm just window-shopping here, I'm not planning to run out and buy this tomorrow. I don't like buying used cars in the winter, because it's the worst time to fix all the initial bugs. But I'm...

      While I agree that Chinese parts built to OEM standards are generally fine, I would not buy any parts on ebay that are shipped from China and appear to be OEM. Some questionable manufacturers are...

      I think some of the posters from the snow states don't understand what black ice is. One of my earliest clear memories, from when I was maybe three or four years old, is of watching out the window...

      So close! This guy has in stock part number 26H-16722, "molding hood side RH":

      As a fan of '70s cars, I also recognize that styling and technology have changed. So, here are a few things I would like to see return in concept, not verbatim as they were done in the '70s:

      -...

      While I agree that the customer was obviously the cause of this mess...$9300 to put a transmission in a Subaru Impreza? That's half the price of the car! I would have guessed that quote was for a BMW...

      Interesting...16721 in later years, seems to be the Ford part-type number for "hood side emblem". So in the more modern numbering scheme, your specific part would be something like an A2LY-16721-A....

      You're probably way ahead of me on research for this problem, but I just thought I'd ask...Have you found a Ford part number for this piece? Maybe that would be an "A2LY-" number, if they were even...

      I just noticed that the multicolored tri-shield emblem is back :thumbup: On the front and rear, anyway. I wonder if that signals that it's coming back for production models as well?

      What makes me...

      Very interesting, and probably about as close to a "traditional Buick land yacht" as I can reasonably ask for in 2015. I hope something comes of this and it isn't just a design study. We've been...

      I wonder how much of this stuff is really OEM? Is all the cheap knock-off junk just what they sell to stupid Americans on ebay, or is a lot of it sold domestically as well? I've seen some pretty...

      Whether Uber is considered legal in certain areas or not, the fact is that the way they keep their costs low is by not following rules that the traditional taxis have to follow. The economics of the...

      I remember when you posted about that car before. Hopefully this guy didn't totally destroy it (if it is the same one). I'm wondering if he did a little more than "hit a curb", and maybe crushed or...

      Yes, the Fairmont was on the Fox platform. I don't remember what engine was in ours (I was 4 when we traded it in) but according to the '79 brochure, the options were an I-4, I-6 or 302 V8. I'll have...

      The Australia thing makes sense. I was wondering what they were going to do about that, since the Falcon seems to be such an institution over there...it's hard to believe they would drop it with no...

      The Explorer PI has been easily outselling the Taurus version, so I think the idea is that the Explorer would become the sole police offering. According to the TTAC sources, an early proposal for the...

      I was surprised by the low base price of the Aspen. In today's money, it's around $16K, which is less than the MSRP of the mythical base 2015 Dart without A/C. I can see why the Aspen and Volare were...
