As far as a part/accessory: WeatherTech. Yeah its a non-moving part, but it excels at what it does by not doing more than it should. Read more

I’m on the fence here; the paint is decent, interior is respectable and if the 4.0L is the OHV version should be good for at least another 100K. What concerns me is most don’t know about is the failing of the 4R55E is fairly common, a rebuild or replacement can easily outweigh the initial $2k. Also the pictures don’t Read more

I agree about the chop/swap SOP for the Burke class, standard fair, because they were built with serviceability in mind. I was speaking more to the service life of this class of vessel (which I’m sure it’s already exceeded) and lack of long-term procurement planning (more than one spare.)

1st Gear: One benefit is if you are fortunate to be in a position to purchase, the dealers will actually put forth the effort into making sure you’re happy (at least my experience was.) The sales person I dealt with seemed genuinely terrified I’d walk out at anytime if something didn’t go correctly, it was great!

My dad now owns the Mercury cousin to that Lincoln above; 78' Cougar XR-7 dark blue, with tan vinyl top and sunroof. It used to be a family friend’s car that he bought new. My dad did maintenance on it for the former owner and I got to go on test-rides with him post-repairs. The superior floaty-ness was something to Read more

As I’m sure you’re aware, most if not all current USCG and Naval vessels are built in modules during assembly for the build yard’s ease. Its only when they actually need to be repaired is when they find out the drawings they did 20+ years ago will actually work to service anything.

Not only that but they didn’t have the forethought to believe they’d ever have to replace it.

I always thought it was less about keeping it a dirty secret and more an admittance of being to lazy to hold it until you got out of the shower.

It “appears” to be a solid in the picture, but for a I6 convertible its a little steep, CP. $15k maybe. Read more

After just selling my 00' Z3 auto, I can tell you the market is all over the place with these and the M-Sport stuff usually bumped the price $1000-$2000 (dependent on mileage.) That said, I thought the price wasn’t too terrible, but would be better if it had the optional hard top.

It’s a fine example for sure, but $3990 hoof-stomps too many, CP.

I’ve been twice to my nearest Pick n’ Pull (in Virginia) for my 95' F-150 and a few other things since lock-down. Other than not getting your hand stamped when you walk in the door, maybe 60% of the people walking the yard wearing masks (all staff wearing masks and gloves) and plexi-glass at the registers its status-qu

Raph, just a point of pedantry here; the hood mounted turn signals on a I6 car also indicates that it may also have the “Sport Sprint” package. It didn’t change much other than that hood, a chrome air cleaner, chrome valve cover and a textured shift knob (simulating “leather” I guess.)

Since my last truck (02' Ranger)shared the same platform with four different models: 95-01 Explorer(and sports), 96-01 Mountaineer, 01-05 Sport Trac, Mazda B2300-4000 I’d say at least 12-15 vehicles. Read more
