  1. I have long lists of things that can be done now that you have a wagon........

    Now This Is Just Evil.

    I don't see a problem with that, unless you want to change the spark plugs....
  3. LMAO @ Red...... I cant fit anywhere near as much, but now that I only have to go to the corner to get my yuengling, I don't have to worry. 2000_gold.... Thanks i'll look into that. Im slowly getting stuff cleaned (to my standards..LOL) and figuring this ride out. Its been quite a while since ive had a chevy V8 to play with.
  4. LMAO @ Brian.... Those Bloomington people have no idea what to expect with me around... njackson580... Yea, I love the options for wheels. I have the stock 16x8.5 rims now, but looking to go to 17x9.5 in the spring. Double-neg..... Yea, I still miss the wagon and the things I did with it. I loved going to shows with something completely different. This is a real cop magnet too, loud and fast with some show..LOL Kev.... I'll get you a pic of the dash in all its Christmas tree glory.. I added a few new pics up top, since I started cleaning the motor up today. Next weekend I attack the engine bay, it wont be a like the wagon, but it may eventually be close. LOL Thanks everybody for the comments, I know im going to have some fun with this one.
  5. OK, I was really good when I had the 03 Red Wagon, that was the longest I had ever owned a car. Then I went and got Candy (2012 Taurus) and only a year later I traded her in on the Benz C300. In the meantime, I brought Lil Red home (1987 Porsche 924S). Well, I still have the Benz C300, that's my "winter ride" and also the family car. I had a lot of fun with the Porsche, but as I was warned, it was a big money pit. Not because of factory issues, but previous owner issues. Like any used car, you really don't usually have a good history and when its never driven and no paperwork, your taking a chance and that chance bit me big time. I had fun with Lil Red, and even got a show trophy with her, but the joy of Porsche ownership was slowly fading. The final straw was when she was hit by a piece of steel that fell off a truck. The resulting $2600 damage helped freshen up the paint work on the front and pushed my decision to try another ride. So, I parted ways with my little Porsche and now have a new toy to play with, and to the applause of my co-workers I now have an American hot rod. I now have a C4 1985 Corvette, and she's far from stock. I am the 3rd owner, and she is originally from Tenn. The first owner installed a brand new crate LT1 350 C.I. motor in late '92 with an updated ECU & chip along with an upgraded transmission. The second owner had a complete tear down and GM dealer refinish and paint job to original factory quality. The car runs very strong, since almost all of the emission equipment has been tuned out of the ECU and removed from the car. Its breathing through a 58mm throttle body with tuned port injection and has a stainless magnaflow duel stainless exhaust out the back. The best part about this car, is I have documentation on almost everything ever done to this car, the stack of papers is bigger than a phone book. So, now for the pictures......
  6. Yes, the 2011 C300 Sport has 4matic. The wifes CLK430 convertible only has 72k on her and wont see snow so its fine without it. The C300 is my winter car and everyday family car.
  7. HEY, I still make it in here once in a while....... More due to work issues than anything. Now that I work a rotating 12 hour 5 day work schedule its hard to even know what day it is. Yes, we are a 2 Benz family with a Porsche as a summer fun car. Hers, 2003 CLK430 Cabriolet Mine, 2011 C300 Sport Summer fun car, 1987 Porsche 924S OK, now for the original question, what is the measurements for those hood spear decals. If I remember right, they were about 1 1/4 tall at the back and around 24 inches long. The ones on Ebay are the same and unless you have someone that deals with the vinyl decals, that's the easiest way to get them.
  8. So, today I went down to Akron to look for parts for the 924S, and as usual no luck. With old habits hard to die, I headed over to the Ford section to snoop around. I ended up coming up with something I have never seen before, a pair of GENUINE FORD molded rear splash guards. They are in almost perfect condition with a small area of scuff un the bottom of the right rear guard. They will clean up great and look good on any Gen4 sedan out there. They have the Ford oval molded on each guard also. I am asking $30 SHIPPING INCLUDED USPS Priority mail. Alaska, Hawaii and Canada may cost more for postage, well have to see for those.

    Highlights From My New Job...

    Ive actually seen a couple of those Econo Rigs at car shows, They are very rare in rust belt states, since the sheetmetal from those days wasn't the greatest. Those things are really nice when fixed up.
  10. I wish i could bs there this year, had a great time when i brought the wagon up a couple years ago. Ill be down the road at the nascar race at mid ohio the same day.

    Pats Trick

    I took off the plastic cover on the steering column and mounted the PATs chip as close to the ignition switch as possible. You should test out the placement before you replace the covers to save possible headaches. Then when you put the cover back on, no body knows the key is in place.

    Pats Trick

    What you are thinking of doing WILL work. A lot of the shops that install remote start do this trick. The will cut the key so the PATs chip is by itself then ziptie or tape the PATs chip near the ignition switch. I did this with my 2001 explorer. The dealer is who actually told me to do this because when I bought the explorer it only had one PATs key with it. I didn't want to spend the $$$$ to get another key and reprogram them. I bought 3 regular keys for $6 total and taped the PATS key up next to the ignition switch.

    Bulls In The Wild

    I went to the county Fair tonight, for the opening night Demo Derby, and guess what was in the first heat, car 27............ Sorry to say, the first hit from that '78 Town Car took the rear bumper cover right off. The bull lasted to finish 3rd at least, the Grand Marq blew his trans trying to keep the pedal floored and shift between F & R..... At least the Taurus put up a valiant fight before its trans gave out, the back end was completely over the rear wheels when it died......
