Re: Website issues...

Yes, the error messages show up for me the first time I hit the forum main page. They should go away when we upgrade to the new phpBB version. I "fixed" some of the other errors a while back, but the real long term fix is again a phpBB upgrade.

Re: 1969 Cougar XR-7 “R Code” convertible at the Russo & Steele Auction - Scottsdale 1/18 or 1/19 - NO RESERVE

That's a great looking car. I hope the auction goes well for you.

It looks like you'll still have plenty of other nice cars left.

Re: Outbox not sending PM's

That's the way the system works. PMs stay in your Outbox until the recipient reads them. Then they move to your Sent Items or whatever it's called.

Re: Stock piling parts for major work...

Joe, Just so you know, it isn't that I don't want to buy Merkur parts, it's that I need a place to store them, I've got higher priorities that need the money worse, etc. Despite that, I have parts that I've forgotten I own and don't remember buying. I also have parts that I remember buying but don't...

Re: Scorpio Info now online

Ed, Can you be more specific or post a link to the section you're having problems with? I just checked it out and everything under "Heating and Cooling" loaded fine (and quickly). Random links from the rest of the handbook also loaded fine. Maybe there's a problem with just one or two sections, but ...

Re: Finding Build/Sales History?

Carfax and/or Autocheck is what comes to mind for me. I don't know how far back their records go and I don't think they have manufacture date, do they?

Re: Original owner since '86 planning updates...

The lights are on the back of the instrument panel, but they are not the same bulbs as the clock. Some have soldered 194s in the holder to replace them, but they aren't 194 bulbs. http://merkurmidwest.com/catalog/i174.html Your link won't display as an image. Here's a shot of the bulb from that pag...
