Re: Sitting with a blown head gasket

North or south of Akron? I'm in Jackson TWP, in between Canton and Akron. Mike is in Barberton, but probably uses Akron as a point of reference since hardly anyone knows the former match capital of the world.

Re: Re-upholstering the center console lid...

Looks good..but I like Raven better... I like the raven better if only because all of the things match, or are at least close. The much darker dash in both the XRs and apparently Scorpios bother me. But I do like the tan leather with black cars as a general rule. Our Acura RDX has a light tan leath...

Re: Real Firetruck BBQ Grill Tailgate Food Truck

100 ft ladder would be great for cutting tree branches. But where on earth would you park the thing when not in use... Don't get me thinking how to justify the purchase of one! Indeed the challenge would be storing the vehicle. My office used to be a house of someone in the local fire department. H...

Re: $400 Key Fob???!!!

If your key is like the one in the link the fcc # is CWTWB1U793 So any button will work if it has that number on it. It's like a garage door opener or something. When my aftermarket car alarm fob started giving me problems I had to order one that was crimestopper. The whole box of key fobs from pul...

Re: Re-upholstering the center console lid...

Original seats? Wow, I am impressed. Mine are all cracked up in the front. The rear seating is hard, but no major wear. My climate is not that bad for California as I am close to the ocean. The car is kept in the parking structure and away from the sun, but the front passenger seat still cracked ev...

Re: Black '89 Scorpio on eBay

Looks to be in better shape than mine. Apparently this was for sale on eBay before it was given to the charity for less money.

Re: NEW Merkur part of the week

People have probably purchased a new part of the week and driven the car so much they've had to buy another of the same part by now.

The shimmy while braking was the ABS. That is according to the service manager at the dealership I bought my first Merkur from.

Re: XR4Ti Fallacy Thread

Plaid pants, white belts and white shoes weren't part of the Merkur sales guy dress code. That is so funny. The first Merkur dealership I went to, the salesman had that and a polyester sorts coat to match the polyester pants. He didn't want to sell me a Merkur, but tried to push me towards a Grand ...

Re: Accuracy of fuel range indication

I always enjoyed playing with the fuel computer in both our Scorpios. I felt they were reasonably accurate and compared well with the fuel guage. I believe the accuracy of miles to empty on longer trips using the cruise control is more accurate than city's stop & go. I could have done a real compar...
