  1. Even TCCA is dying off. I’ve been a member there since 2002 and pop in there from time to time. I belong to a couple Facebook groups and somethings just don’t ever change. SHO guys with their high maintenance cars and superiority complexes SLO guys complaining there’s nothing available for their cars. Tales as old as time. The camaraderie that used to exist between users seems to disappeared over the years.
  2. The police did figure out who it belonged to... they haven't found him yet though:(
  3. So, long story short. Somebody was tracking my movements with a Garmin GTU-10 (gps tracking device) They emailed this photo to a friend of my car, from an anonymous account. In order to try and identify the person following this is my only recourse. Please assist.
  4. Well after a nearly five year absense from owning a Taurus I'm back in the drivers seat of one. I recently took ownership of a 2012 Ford Taurus SE. It's so nice to be back in a Taurus!!!
  5. The problem is typical with a high out put alternator. They usually do not generate all of their potential at idle. One thing you can check, is if you have the smallest pulley possible for the alternator. When I had my H.O built I wasn't even getting 13+V, but it turns out somebody at some point had installed an oversized pulley.
  6. Have you installed this yet? I saw the post over on TCCA, how did you make out?
  7. Up for discussion is and classed ad from my neck of the woods. I find this guys price a little steep. What do you think? He has two, and selling on the premise they are futur classics, not many built. http://chatham-kent.kijiji.ca/c-cars-vehicles-cars-trucks-1995-Ford-Taurus-SHO-Sedan-W0QQAdIdZ391405886
  8. My heart breaks. Exactly like my old 1990 Taurus which I miss dearly.
  9. Ninja Turtles to be honest... Only one too many of the original series... But then a whole bunch of newer b.s versions... I and II are the only ones worth watching!
  10. I have a season of this on DVD! This show as awesome!
  11. Now THIS I have got to see!
  12. Unfortunately my local Police Department seems to be in love with Chargers. I don't think I will ever see one of the Interceptors on the road in my town unless it is the Provincial Police force. I did see a new Explorer Interceptor the other day. It was a sharp looking vehicle.
  13. Sorry, didn't mean to freak ya out... Just wasn't sure myself is all.
  14. I haven't used the E8 line... But this past summer I was doing sound competitions with one SA-10 and holding my own. Sundown makes great products that perform way above and beyond their expectations... And they price them where the average joe or the person with a small budget can afford them.
  15. Oh stop. You wanted the original poster to purchase a set of speakers more powerful than he needs, and made the comment that if he had the money he should use JL. Neither of these were based on any merits.
  16. You could get an inexpensive line out put converter. If you wanted to go with some decent power budget style, I'd pick up a Sundown SA-8, it will take a small enclosure, sealed or ported, and find a budget priced 500W-1000W rms amp. I think if you found this equipment used you could probably have a decent little system for about $200-$250. The SA-8's run around $100 used, and another $150 should get you a reasonably price, and decent output system. You would splice into your rear speaker wires, run these into the high level side of the line output converter, which would give you a line
  17. I don't get it. Who cares really... Websites become infected all the time... I went to visit tcca and saw the warning so I left. no big deal to me...
  18. Look for Water Weld. it is made by the same company as JB Weld. I think this would be a better option to fix it. http://jbweld.net/products/water.php
  19. Here we go with the JL Audio again. If money was no object there is SO much equipment out there far superior to anything JL has, or will produce.... As for the original posters concerns. What exactly are you looking for. A basic upgrade from the stock speakers? Consdering that most aftermarket decks are putting out around 17W rms and you are using stock equipment I think you will be fine with your original selection. Please do not assume because they may not be up to your standards that the people reviewing them are incapable of writing a review on their use. The experience is subje
  20. Here is a picture of what I am talking about. See the two black plugs for the factory wiring harness, and the antenna plug on the right. The part you are installing right now that you think is the radio is just a controller. The guts that make it work are in the trunk. When you install an aftermarket cd player, this unit is bypassed. You have to run a long wiring harness from the new cd player to the trunk to tie into the existing wiring for the car's speakers, and power. You also run a long antenna cable to do the same. Hope this helps.
  21. He had his own cd player installed in the car didn't he. The wiring schematic you are describing to me is typical of an aftermarket wiring harness for the speakers on a cdplayer. That wiring harness runs under the carpet and into the trunk where it plugs into the factory harness for the speakers. You will have find the original Radio control unit in the trunk and plug the factory amplifier back in. It is here that the antenna cord is. You will need to plug it back in to the factory amplifier. The harness with the green/grey black wires etc, will be ignored. There should be another ha
  22. I had two. The 2000 I was driving was dangerously rusty. I was worried where the strut rod in the rear attaches to the frame/body was going to break because the corrosion was so heavy in spots. Also needed extensive work. Had a coolant leak that I chased for 5 years that was ENOUGH lol... I needed money to go to a U2 show so I sold her for scrap. My 1990 was a hard one to let go. Had her for 7 years or so. Spent a lot of time crusing, and working on her. I simply did not have the money any more to bring her back to safe standards... Needed brakes, suspension work, and it no longer
