  1. Car is gone. End Thread.
  2. So, I just tripped across an image from 2012. MUST be a repost but I can't find it anywhere. I give you a visual WTF?

    What Rear rotors do I need for 1999 Wagon?

    Here's the master list of rotors from Rockauto.com. I randomly picked the DOHC engine, not sure what you have or if it mattered. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/ford,1999,taurus,3.0l+v6+dohc,1354812,brake+&+wheel+hub,rotor,1896 Start one at a time and open the info page to check specs. Maybe you'll get lucky. Otherwise, I hate to say it, but it might be a Ford dealer that could help you.
  4. https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/cto/d/1995-ford-taurus/6567254380.html Found this, low miles good body. My eyes hurt now. WHY do people do this? It's POO. But reversible.
  5. Why don't you skip the JY, bring some money to my house, and drive home a gray '96 SHO with a JBL sound system? Body is rusty but drivetrain is strong. Planning on moving soon and just need the car gone. I am in Lombard Illinois.
  6. Our headliners are like a thin foamboard with a thin fabric glued to it. If the fabric is smooth and well adhered, I think I would be inclined to just glue another layer of thin fabric over the top of the existing liner.
  7. http://www.thechicagogarage.com/forum/sale-automotive/163754-mustang-parts.html Don't know if any of this is in your wheelhouse. That is up to you to decide. Just passing along information.
  8. jc - I got the deal of the year for you. I have a running, driving gray '96 SHO I want out of the driveway. Clean title, body has 200k on it, drivetrain closer to 100k. Welded, runs strong. Front valve cover gasket leaking a bit = smokes a bit when I fired it up last weekend. $350.00 just come and get it. Yes, you can drive it home. I live in Lombard. It has all the parts you want and a few other precious items too. Like a full on JBL sound system. Like a gray cloth interior in good shape.

    Badass party van for sale

    Bwah ha ha ha haaaaaa!! ! !!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. Great platform car. I have already thought of this and actually discussed this with the SWiMBO. She is not so enthusiastic. I'm just too busy to play right now and right now is the proper time to start a ball like this rolling. Who is our team if I would donate this car to the soon to be formed TSOC Bull-Team? Do we have to have a bill of sale to satisfy Lemons' minimum purchase price rules? Honestly. I could probably coax a few bucks out of my company for a sponsorship in exchange for a couple stickers on the car or so, but I think Lemons has rules about that stuff.
  11. Bump. Nobody wants a winter beater? Super rare Gray V8 SHO which 'Could' be restored. Drivetrain is rock solid. $500.00 Cash, come and get it.
  12. Hi guys - I have a '96 SHO I just don't use anymore. Daughter used it for years but went away to college and I need the parking spot. Plates expire end of the month and I don't want to renew them. Here's the deal. Car is street legal, passed emissions last year but will need Cats to pass again. Has old snow tires on it right now that would get you through last year winter but not 20" of snow. Never burns oil, engine welded, strong tranny. I want my cloth interior out of it but don't know if I have 2 gray leather front seats. I have plenty of tan seats. Great winter beater. Plenty rusty. Very dependable. In Lombard, Illinois. I want $700.00 for the car as is and no callbacks two weeks later with some bullshit wanting your money back. That is why I am selling it as a engine/trans combo with a full car attached. One can get plates for the car, I don't expect it to pass emissions, and whatever breaks, Breaks. JBL sound system is just a plus.
  13. Hey Brian - Now there's a 54,000 mile 1989 White Mustang GT Convertible for sale nearby. Pix look really good. Car looks near flawless once you get past those floormats - those things hurt my eyes! Only asking $7500.00. I wouldn't let my Barney go for that and the SHO is higher miles. https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/cto/d/1989-ford-mustang-gt/6273520864.html
  14. Following up on 1986 Lincoln Towncar. Putting new Walker Cats, sourced from Rockauto.com Nice items. Would be even more nice if they fit perfect. They fit close, Blow torch and a mallet and the bends will be better. Flanges way off from square.
