    Rolling Restoration needs...

    There are a handful of cars on the market now that come from the factory air suspension again. Jeep and Tesla come to mind.. I've always been curious about trying to pick up some "broken" units and see how they compare to ours. It'd be nice to have a modern replacement that could be...

    replacment horn for nissan

    Mike! How's it going? If you can find the horn set from a 1984 Oldsmobile 98, get 'em. an ex-girlfriend had one of those, and they were without a doubt, the most intimidating factory horns I've ever heard. Of course they were installed in the front-right fender, so I couldn't extract them...

    10 disc cd player

    I once got my hands on an older 10-disc Sony (branded) changer that was built quite a bit better than the 97-98 Sony unit. It too, used the same magazines, but there was a lot more metal inside it, including that platter that I'd noticed was a trouble-point in the 97-98 ones. If the one I...

    Post a picture you took today.

    Not today, but a few days ago. I couldn't resist going for one more drive before tucking the car away for the winter.

    10 disc cd player

    You'll definitely want to check for the wiring. It should be on the left side of the trunk, basically below that flap where the air-ride switch is. It's worth noting that for day-to-day use, the CD changers are pretty unreliable these days. I went through three of them in my old '97 before I...

    HELP! Rotors welded to hubs!

    Well done indeed. I've had to really fight with a couple of these in the past as well. It'd be fun to see Mark around here again, word on the street is that he still has the car..

    No minnessota markfest 2021

    I've been waiting years to see a viral video of BadSax duct-taped to an airplane seat, but it has yet to happen. I'm definitely not opposed to moving this event to the summer. Bill, are you thinking Pre or post Carlisle? Or did we all decide Michigan is the new Carlisle? There's also still...

    Lost the start wire!

    Could the ignition switch itself be the source of your trouble here?

    No minnessota markfest 2021

    This is on me, really.. I didn't "own" it early enough to put a viable plan together. Compounded by an opportunity to go camping the weekend it usually happens, I took the easy way out.. This is definitely not over. I don't see my Lincoln friends nearly often enough. Thanks for calling me...

    Still Kicking

    Hey, Bud! It's great to hear from you. I'm sorry to hear your RVing days are over, but now you're on to the next phase. You'll be able to cruise the country in style with the Z, living life one "Continental" breakfast at a time. :)

    WTB Gen2 LSC (Midwest)

    I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your car! Although I don't have one for sale, more information on what you're looking for might help "shake one loose." I know we have a few midwest members with "fleets" of Marks, who may be interested in letting one go. We also have people who love...

    Message: Check charging system on 96 Diamond edition

    Yup. These alternators are internally regulated. I've kept one of my old ones on-hand so I could rebuild it with new bearings and regulator, but I've been sitting on it for years now, and still haven't done it. :)
