Just speculation, but 1987 was the best year for the bi-wing models.

Pull the seat bottom forward first by those black straps at each end, then the seat backs fold pretty flat.

You can try to identify the circuit that the drain is on by pulling fuses one at a time until the drain stops. Once you know which cir...

I've updated the first post in this thread, but it may get overlooked by people who have been following the discussion. If you...

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.
