    Oh Wow! that is cool to see. I love a column shift car. I didn't think they used the LQ1 that far into the 90s.

    I’ll check my codes to see if there are from the factory. Thank you! She’s come along way! She just took first in a car show

    Ratchet strap is easy.  Just don't roll the engine too far forward, and start putting pressure on the radiator hoses.
    I am due a plug change too.  It's been a little bit over three years since I changed them.  Guess I will keep on using the ACDelco conventional plugs AC R44LTSM since they have been doing good.  New set of wires installed last plug change, so I hope they come off easy.  I did use dielectric grease on the boots.

    Not sure.  Since your car is a low mileage one, maybe that's why it still retains it.  My 89 International parts car is relatively a low mileage car too.  I stole it for the 91 car.

    Nice, I don't know if I've heard of anyone doing it this way but whatever is easiest.  I might try this on my 96 CS 3.1 car.  Thanks!

    I usually ask Manuel as well, but he doesn’t always answer right away

    I don’t know if anyone else has done this but thought I would share just in case. One way to change the plugs and wires on the 3.1 motor is to take just the alternator off and you have full access to the rear plugs. No rotating the engine as explained in the factory Manuel and no ratchet straps, which I’ve seen people do.

    I do love fins, chrome and horse power just like everybody else, I have also put my foot down to other car collectors about my taste, but when I roll up in my car from 1990 among a sea of 69 Camaros and tri fives Chevys I stand out. We have the cars that were not suppose to survive but THEY DID! So make room, like it or not. I do understand that the majority of people grew up around the rear wheel drive big v8 cars but the FWD drive cars can pack a punch to.

    I noticed the color of this car and instantly knew what it was.  My heart dropped!  I didn't want to see it but it was right in front when you walk into the yard.  Luckily I pulled the CD player, rear spoiler, and trunk hinges for a couple of members so at least some things didn't go to waste.

    My parents have one of these, they bought it new.  Looks like this one was hit in the right quarter.

    Branson/Springfeild, Mo is a big car enthusiast cities. There are shows there all the time and route 66 runs right through there. Not as exciting as Nashville, but a idea for a future southern meet.

    These are great illustrations Manic. Thanks for posting them. Looks like they assigned individuals by name to fabricate different support pieces.

    In the back of the 1991 CS Service Manual Vol 2, there is a section which shows all of the reinforcements added to the coupes to make them convertibles. I counted 30 diagrams and each diagram appears to show a different support brace and it’s location on the car. I’d post all of them in a separate link, but my manual looks like termites got in it and the entire section of the manual is damaged. If someone could post up the diagrams in the Vert section that would be great. Here are just some of the diagrams.
