  1. This came up over a year ago. As I understood it at the time (as I was in exactly the same boat) the problem is not the distributor, it is the manufacturer. As in: they are not making them anymore. Something about the company used to do the actual manufacturing was out of business, bankrupt, or something. They were trying to find another company to do the production for them, but apparently given the posts above, still have not. I suspect that if anyone has told you they are on back order, etc., they are just fibbing to keep your money. Yeah, they are on "back order" to the extent businesses in the states are ordering them and the mother ship is saying wait. But there is no production. I would move on. My little project was held up quite a while before we gave up.
  2. Do you have both sides of the grill? I see a picture of only one? Thank you
  3. you are correct, it would be covered. but, and having a lot of experience with insurance on a daily basis, and all certainty the premium would go up the fact that it is a comprehensive claim does not change that. Any loss on the policy, generally speaking, affect premiums. but, thank you for the advice. It is greatly appreciated.
  4. Nope. About the hugest bolt I have ever seen, easily an inch in diameter, got kicked up by a car in a different lane on freeway this am.
  5. Given the location, i was sort of hoping someone skilled could get the dent out. But,now that I look it at you may well be correct. May require a new front. Won't bother putting it through insurance. not worth the premium hit. Thanks!
  6. This just happened on way to work. Damn it !!!!!! Any suggestions?
  7. Are the sidewalls less, to use a technical term, sticky-outy? Mine rub a smidge on speed bumps. I spent a while researching and could not find anything,
  8. Dare I ask: are those turbos, or tribute cars. Either way they are cool. But does seem like a conspicuous number of them
  9. Mmmm.... the bidding closed. Not the same as it being bought. I hope I am wrong, but any bets on whether it is funded and actually closed? Of course, looks like a $5,000 penalty if not so likely its a done deal.
  10. Slavs: I know. And you won’t pay market price for chrome, seals, or any of the other NLA parts because people want more than they were selling for new 50 years ago. 🙂 26K is perfectly reasonable for what appears to be a solid driver. With the 2.0 mated to a 5 speed. The body looks pretty straight. The carpet is new’ish. I don’t like cloth seats but those look to be in good shape. All that, AND a sun roof. I mean come on. I bought mine for 11k, but well more than that into it, and while I prefer mine to that one on BAT, 25K is about what you are in to buy a basic driver and then get it spiffed out. The money, then all the time to do it. Someone is wanting something turn key that is ‘good enough’ and put a smile on their face now. Not two or three years from now while it sits in the garage while they tinker at night. If it ever gets done. Time is worth money too. I once once wringing my hands over a particular boat and wanting to hold out for one about 10k less. I told my buddy about this, then he told me: You know, I used to think like that, then I realized all the time I was losing with my family I could have enjoying with it in the meantime and realized it was not worth the money I thought I was saving. I went out and bought the boat next day. Best thing I ever did. The fun we had with it that summer was wroth many times more than the money I was trying save. So okay, you wouldn’t pay 5k for it. (Not trying to pick Slavs.). How much would you pay for what you want, then how much time and money would it take to get it how you want. Cheers. PS: That vgaetajr is a douche nozzle though. Total poser. He thinks he is scaring people off. That, or his is some 15 year old sitting in his room and will stand up the seller. Just sayin’
  11. I think it’s color dependent. On my Verona car. I like it better with the body color. On your white car, I do not think it is even a close comparison. Go with the black. You will not go back
  12. Polyurethane bushings installed all around last year. Immediately the front bushings creeked like an old rocking chair. Brought back to Patrick, he lubed them and fixed the problem. Now, rear is creaking like an old wooden chair. I sprayed “penetrating“ grease into all the bushings the best I could and it did not solve the problem. This must be a repetitive issue. Can anyone help with a bit of quick direction. From the sound in location, I think it is a big ass one that is right in front of the wheel welll. Many thanks.
  13. ooooooo.... roundie elitism. I will concede, before I bought I would have preferred a roundie. But after much searching, a square tail is what I found. You can’t pick your kids, but you love them with all their foibles. You can pick you wife though... i will say though, I can put a beer on my bumper while working on it. Do that on a roundie! 😎
