  1. I have long lists of things that can be done now that you have a wagon........
  2. 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 attac
  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 ch
  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 vi
  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 fo
  9. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Hey Bob, I can see you driving that in those Michigan winters........
  14. 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......
  15. OHHHHHHHHH the things I could do to that wagon........
  16. OK, for those that don't know, 2 years ago I sold off my house & moved into a condo so I didn't have to worry about yard work or repairs anymore. Since then, I have loved the freedom of not having to do these things and have more free time for myself & things I like to do. Well, after seeing this article today, I want a house with a huge yard and a new lawn mower.......... http://autos.yahoo.com/blogs/motoramic/honda-fire-spitting-lawnmower-speeds-130-mph-145902373.html
  17. OK, its that time of the year again. I'll be in Indy next Friday and was wondering if anyone else is planning on going to the any of the races at the speedway next week..........
  18. The sound from that beautiful Jag E-type was like music......... A car that's pushing 50 years old and sounds better than most new cars. I did miss out on the vintage Rolls Royce that was there, as well as a few other exotics. I did have a lot of attention with Red, but I must say that more people were looking at and talking about the wife's car. I have found out that the CLK430 is a rare care around here, and in the condition hers is in the MB fans were all over her car.
  19. A beautiful classic Benz wagon. Who would think that a 33 year old wagon would still sell for almost $4k ???? I just saw a write up on re-building those old models and making them run like new.
  20. Today I took Lil Red (1987 Porsche 924S) to a Euro Car Show. Now I did expect to see a lot of Porsches, Mercedes, BMWs, Minis & VWs, but what showed up was a real surprise. So, with that said, on with the pictures. First is Lil Red & her sister Bennie (wifes Mercedes 2003 CLK430 Cabriolet)
  21. Well Brian, Well Brian, it seems you have been bitten by the show bug now. It really feels good when you have people showing interest in what many people think of as a common car. Scarlett is a real beauty and you should be proud of her. Like was already said, the Taurus was thought of as a disposable car, to see one at a show that someone has put their heart into (like the Red Wagon) people begin to see the beauty in these cars. I am glad that you have the last license plate from the wagon, I think the "spirit of the wagon" has taken its hold on you............
  22. That's some sexy chrome bling for the 'ol girl there Brian..... Those chrome rims sure look good from here.
  23. ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ Just gotta love the looks of a red wagon with chrome SHO rims.........
