Re: XR featured on Wheelers Dealers this season

I love this show! Gonna be interesting to see what road they take on the XR. That said, who gets sort of tweaked that no matter what they do or how much they make, they NEVER consider the price of the labor hours involved in repairing/modding a car? I kind of "justify" it by believing that they are...

Re: XR featured on Wheelers Dealers this season

I heard about this Saturday. This is one of my favorite shows so this is very exciting! Questions... 1. Will they mod it or return it to stock? 2. Will they be able to turn a profit on it? 3. Has Mike Brewer showed up at Mike or Jeff's places of business looking for parts? I guess Rapido is closer, ...

Re: Image hosting...tinypic is gone...now what?

I post car show photos directly all the time. Doubleheader today, so expect pics!
There will be a "post inline" button next to your upload.

If I needed a host, I'd use Imgur.

Re: Car Show Season

Small world... Ask him to please check with his Parts Manager or another old time employee if the dealership might have any Merkur parts collecting dust. My favorite local parts manager [since retired] from local dealership would find OEM parts in some of those "once-upon-a-time Merkur" dealerships...

Re: Car Show Season

Fun car show story... I run into ex-owners and techs all the time, but yesterday I ran into the owner of Strieter Lincoln-Mercury here in town. They sold quite a few XR4Tis back in the day and he drove both XRs and Scorpios at that time. He told me that back in '15, he got a phone call from Curt Gus...

Re: Scorpio & Memorabilia AUCTION

I told my wife that I was gonna win that Scorpio and kick her Cadillac out of the garage so I could park it next to my XR.
For some reason she didn't think too much of that idea...

Perfect weather today... sunny, breezy and 75 degrees. Hopefully it stays this way for the next 6 weeks.

Thanks for the heads up, Bob!
I have a lot of unique stuff myself, but I'm always on the lookout for more.

Re: Car Show Season

"The 1961 Mercedes 300SL roadster parked next to me is worth about half a million bucks. It is not a replica, it's the real deal. 30 year restoration was just completed. The trim alone cost about twice as much as my car." I bet you drive more miles on yours enjoying it more than the garage queen.Wa...

Re: WTB - an XR4TI stick or automatic

Stock or modified car? There are next to no stock cream puff XRs. If I were looking to sell, at least double your budget. 45K miles, show condition, no mods. Only one issue... gas gauge works when it feels like it, but the low fuel idiot light works all the time so I'm not in any danger of running o...
