They get oil sprayed to prevent rust? :)

I think that car could be around for a very long time.

Kris and Andy are very long time SHO enthusiasts and popular in the SHO community. They will take outstanding care of that car and be able to find anything it needs as well as anyone I could name.

Car probably going into limited use and of course the occasional track day. Salt monster won't get much time with this little treasure.

Well that's good to hear it went home.

your car was cross posted in a lot of places Josh.  Price was reasonable too.

its going to a good home - and at a certain price point on obscure, rare cars - for car people, that's more important sometimes than squeaking an extra few bucks out of a sale.  

So congratulations on the sale :-)

I agree, they were the right people to let it go to, and that was much more important to me than the sale price! I don't think she'll end up tracking it, though as they have the '91+ for that. Considering the car has ZERO rust on it as it was a PNW car it's entire life, It'll probably take a good 10~ years for any salt to devour it's pristine undercarriage, and that's if it was daily driven and parked outside.

I've known Andy and Kris for 15 years. SHE dragged him into this SHO thing.

 

It is GOING to be tracked and then gone over with a toothbrush. Someday soon, the sidewalls on those tires are gonna look like rock-salt. Take my word for it. They live WAY to close to Road America.

Sold Barney :( Kris & Andy Angermeier are the new owners, the car will be starting life in Sheboygan, Wisconsin in the next few weeks. I'm gonna miss that car....

An hour south of me. And yah they live 15min from Road America.  Sheboygan is a nice area, a little too much Milwaukee influence for me but outside of the city its good old rural Wisconsin farm land.

After 13 years, 9 months, and 21 days of remaining intact, the factory original washer fluid hose leading to the hood on my Sable wagon cracked in half today... :( 

And the wagon also needs a left side front ball joint and the front brake pads and rotors. Getting those done tomorrow morning.

That's just about how long mine lasted. I had replace the original ones a couple months ago. One side doesn't squirt as well as it should so I need to get under there and see if it's clogged up with pollen or bugs.

Got the driver seat repaired yesterday. The vinyl looks just as good as leather and didn't cost near as much.  $ 200 to fix a tear about 2 x 4". They had to take out the side panel and replace it. 

The last thing on my 'fix it' list is the rear window.  Rear defroster wires have been bad for years.

The washer fluid hose on my '99 only lasted until around 2012. I was able to cut out the bad patch and bridge with a rubber hose.

Sounds like theses hoses only last 12-13 years !  Not bad for a part that only costs $8-10 max.  Mine was patched and that lasted about 6 months until I remembered to get a completely new one.  

I buy Ford parts almost every day for buses, but can't remember to get stuff for Third Bull. Don't get old.  It  bites. :P (though it does beat the alternative..)

Well I decided to post here again... Just to say that I didn't have to do anything else to my 2001 Sable Wagon but an oil change.

It just keeps driving me to and from work on one hour long commute, 20 minutes being in stop and go. Knock on wood.

Got the last option my sable didn't come with from the factory. Power Passenger seat! Got to wire it all in using the OEM connectors. Even pinned the same connector the heated seat stuff.

@Jaybrooks Wiring was a breeze. Getting that seat from the donor car without all the proper tools... that was a challenge!
