Re: Check out this immaculate Scorpio for auction

Saul bought that red Scorp from Norm's (last name escapes me ATM) widow, Norm passed ~8/10 years ago. Norm had a green XR and the red Scorp. Norm was active in MCA.

Re: Limiting Steering Rack ROM

Weld on to the tie rod ends a travel stop at the angle you're looking for to butt up on the knuckle.
