      Gotta replace Scarlett with another rare beauty!

  2. Im looking for a Black leather driver side seat bottom only.I'm putting Taurus buckets in my 01 Mercury Grand Marquis.I found one black interior Taurus in the local junkyard but the butt cushion has a couple tears.The passenger seat and the driver seat back are in great shape.Also need the manual lumbar knob as it was broken as well.
  3. I knew if I waited long enough I would find out what the possible problem was with my car.I have a 99 Taurus SHO with the same transmission and exact same problem. I thought the trans was shot so I bought a complete motor and trans but have never got around to installing it.Now I think I may try swapping valve body and see if it fixes it.Would be nice if it did the car has been sitting for a little over a year and I kinda miss driving it.
  4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dK8yj0XeDQ happened to stumble across this weird video on you tube.I guess with the 4th of July coming up you could show off your pride driving it around town.

  6. I spotted them in 2013,this was the first time the did a complete mapping of our city.I followed them around for a little bit so I might show up in a few different places,this is one of the better ones https://www.google.com/maps/@40.9093859,-90.6509173,3a,75y,100.63h,63.25t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sNi3zlQ0DHjNmGgt00zbN7A!2e0 here is one farther away https://www.google.com/maps/@40.909278,-90.650922,3a,75y,34.14h,53.75t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sMOp49rJwp2E2AjhXBpd3rA!2e0 I even found the one when we followed them in my brothers truck https://www.google.com/maps/@40.9194902,-90.6481074,3a,75y,255.89h,48.92t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sqVlV_ulgPor_UO28QPPRzQ!2e0 he was driving I was in the passenger seat
  7. http://www.autoevolution.com/news/2015-chevrolet-corvette-z06-convertible-has-serious-crash-in-michigan-88758.html It appears the Vette took the brunt of the damage on this one.
  8. Thanks for the idea guy's I'll try them and see what results I get.I think it may need a new starter first though,http://i933.photobucket.com/albums/ad171/fordtaurus/th_20141008_1826011_zps50b20670.mp4 <--link opens a video I took when I used a jump pack to try and use the starter to turn the motor over.
  9. I picked up this motor at the junkyard yesterday.It has a little over 84K,the picture are of the front and rear heads after I pulled the valve covers.Also there was no metal shavings or flakes of any kind anywhere near the cam or in the heads at all.So from the pictures does it appear that this motor suffered the same fate as many others have or is it good to go after the cams are weld. http://s933.photobucket.com/user/fordtaurus/library/Low%20millage%20SHO%20motor I got the motor,trans and entire subframe with everything still attached for $500,and $100 for the rest of the parts I got from the car.the bumpers,both fenders,trunk lid,front SHO floor mats and JBL rear radio control
  10. Not much has happened to it in the last year other then it has been sitting since about October last year after the transmission went out.That should change next spring after the junkyard haul today.I found a 96 SHO with only 84K in the junkyard today.I got the entire sub frame motor,trans and all both front fenders the front and rear bumper,SHO front floor mats,JBL rear radio control box and the trunk lid all for only $600.Not sure on the motor yet need to pull the valve cover to find out if cam fail or not.If not the whole thing will replace the one in the 99 since it has about 150k.The fenders and bumpers will go on my red 96 GL,and possibly one of the sho motors to replace the vulcan that's in it now.First I need to get it back together, can't believe it been on blocks in the garage for almost 3 years now.
  11. This is what the rim looks like http://www.superford.org/getfile.php?id=107358&toggle=fullsize&f=97-02%20Handling%20Package%20Wheel.jpg,the center cap is just the round part in the middle.This is the 98+ style also the older style is different.
  12. I'm looking for a set of 4 16" HPP Lacy spoke center caps for a Mercury Grand Marquis.I found the 4 rims at the junkyard today but no center caps.
  13. Can anybody run a carfax on this car for me 2MEFM74W51X610922 ,Its an 01 Grand Marquis my grandma just bought.Also the seller claims it has some sort of police package,never heard any thing like that on Mercury's

      No, but they had the Handling and Performance package, which included dual exhaust and other add-ons. It may have that. Some refer to it as a "police package" not knowing the difference.
