  1. tripped over this. Maybe? https://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/cto/d/palatine-97-mercury-sable-wagon-117/6977781640.html
  2. Some days I think I own about half of them....
  3. Car is having pains of guilt for never paying me for the rear springs?
  4. I'm happy with this forum. I check in most every day. The volume is very light, and I kind of expected that when I joined, but I like the crew here. We NEVER have petty fights over sh!t. If you need to pass the hat, say so, I'm in for a few bucks to keep the lights on. Opening to other enthusiasts? How do we attract them? I guess I am cool with that.
  5. Not easily. It is supposed to come out the bottom. Drop 4 subframe bolts and the whole pill comes out more or less after disconnecting steering, hoses, and wires. And flex pipe. Not meant to come out the top. I know of a couple people who did it more or less just to prove you COULD, but it is actually much, much more work.
  6. Man. That SUCKS. Seller MUST have known this was coming. Anyhow, I totally appreciate your attitude. Breakage just means that it is upgrade time! Shame/Blessing that it had to happen so soon after purchase.
  7. Thanks. I think I see a major problem. I wasn't using 'their' box. I clicked on Ground, or something like that, thought I was picking the most economical but don't actually recall seeing the words similar to Parcel Select. Been out of town a lot lately, not easy to run in to the Post Office.
  8. Wow. This is a pain in the ass. What am I doing wrong? My office UPS and FedEx wont deliver to a PO box, and USPS wants like $30.00 to deliver a 9x9x12 seven pound box from 60148 to 94603, and that's clearly rape.
  9. Well. My misfortune is your good fortune. Seems the seal on my storage container did not work so well. My footballs got wet. Choose either or both, all you gotta do is pay for shipping. They may still work but I'll give them to you free.
  10. The first pic matches the SHO exactly. I'm not home right now, I'm in New York on business. I can take a peek this weekend if I get a chance. Are you looking for a complete working 98 style unit? (96-97 have one style of plug ins, 98-99 have a different style)or are you just looking for a body to modify? I know I have bodies, I am not sure if I still have a 98 style EATC Football.
  11. Are you just looking for a radio /climate control 'football'? I probably have one of those around. It would be EATC style from a SHO.
  12. Winter Solstice tonight. Full moon tonight. Next full moon on winter solstice is said to be in 2094 I believe. Ursid Meteor Shower tonight, too. OF COURSE, it is totally cloudy tonight here where I live. GRRRRrrrr. Others might be able to get a view anyhow, so I'm posting.
  13. Spent the weekend on my back in the driveway fabricating a fuel return line for my 1986 Lincoln Towncar. Rusted out and dripping. Oh yeah - full frame car with fuel rail installed on and IN frame rails BEFORE body is set on frame. 22 feet long and dozens of bends. Used stainless steel 5/16 lines from a SHO and carefully heated and rebent them. Yep, 3 piece design to replace line without removing body from frame.
  14. The easiest mod that worked for several folks over the years is a nice shot of giggle-gas. A 75 shot of Nitrous is about max healthy level on a stock setup. Your tranny won't live long with ANY kind of serious boost in power. When I finished building SHO R T S (Eaton M90 @ 16psi boost) I already had a heavily built tranny and Tq Converter on a bench waiting to go in when the stock tranny failed. Stock tranny last 160 miles under boost. Any kind of forced induction would be whatever you can make yourself. I have done both Centrifugal and Roots superchargers on the 3.4 SHO. Looked into a rear turbo, which on hindsight probably would have been the easiest fabrication. Not as much up-front ummph, but probably less of a shock on the drivetrain.
