    New to the site!

    Thanks to MemphisMan, I learned that when changing the rear plugs and wires on the LQ1 cars, people will bend this lip that holds the rubber seal for the hood. Luckily, mine has not been tampered with.

    I wanted to match Mach 5's pic, it's not the best and prettiest picture or situation but it still gives me chills when I see it. There's something very cool about finding a car in it's worst state and literally dragging it out of the weeds. I hope you guys don't mind.
  3. They look great! I'm worried about the finishing results of my CS pie alloys, I hope someone can replicate the Oldsmobile lettering and correct shade of tint.

    It keeps getting worse! That looks like MemphisMan's car! I really like the chrome 5 stars! I'm super bummed right now.

    That's ridiculous! I don't get it. Must happen a lot though. There is a light blue 90ish Olds Cruiser wagon at the Wrench N Go processing area when I was down there last. It looked super solid, not rusty at all and everything looked great on it, probably will get crushed soon.

    Wow, a manual car. That sucks. Are people even given us a chance at them or are they just dropping them off at the yards? Again with the badges in the wrong place, I don't get it.

    Digital Cluster

    Manic and I were just kinda talking about this subject. 1991 was the last year for the UB3 cluster (like your vert). You could still get the base digital cluster in 92 and 93, otherwise it was an analog one. Some verts have the base digital cluster but are not very common but more common on sedans. Actually, a maintenance guy at work has a 92 CS sedan with the base digital cluster. He recently had to get it repaired. How did I do guys?

    Free engine covers!

    I have a pair of really nice LQ1 engine covers for FREE! Just pay for shipping. By both or just one. I bought them by mistake for my 91 CS International LQ1 which has a different cover.

    Just got back from the yard down in Des Moines. A lot of stuff has been crushed but I did find this 89 CS coupe. A 2.8 car that was in pretty bad shape inside and out. I couldn't really find anything I wanted or needed for myself or other members, bummer. The interior was really gross and I didn't want to touch anything, plus it started to rain pretty hard.
  11. Since you asked, here she is! My ‘90 Vert. I bought it in Oct ‘17 from an old man off Craigslist. He was a car collecter and this was part of his collection. He didn’t do anything with it. It was sitting in the back of his garage collecting dust. Last registered in ‘06. It’s still stock from the factory, except the radio. The mileage is correct in the photo, 74k! It has duel exhaust, steering wheel controls and the driver information system that still works. It has some problems,mainly from sitting, so I just putt around town in it and show it at local cruise-ins intill I can get it mechanically solid. It gets some looks. I love it.

      It comes and goes for 1st gen stuff in the yards around my area.  I grab what I can when I can.  I'm keeping a look out for your weather stripping piece, I'll let you know.  A pic would be helpful too.

      Yeah, just send me your VIN and it's pretty cool to find out all the stuff that makes your car unique.  Manic is a genius when it comes to that sort of thing.  He's usually pretty quick and gracious to do it.

      I'll DM the VIN for you to pass on. I need the typical window sweeps for the rear windows but im not to worried about those right now. I only drive it in fair weather. I'm having problems with the Powermaster 3 right now. The pedal doesn't return to turn the brake lights on and there isn't a spring under the dash, The abs light is on and it's leaking brake fluid. I think its just damaged from sitting. I can't find a replacement anywhere.

      I don't know anything about the ABS system on these cars, sorry.  There is some good information on here that can help you with this particular problem.  I know they were problematic and my 91 is a non equipped ABS car so I haven't had to deal with it.  Start a thread or search the forum and help is on the way!

  12. As an International CS owner, thank you! Very cool to look thru. So many Internationals!

    Cougar guys will get how sad this is, 92 XR7 with the one year only finned aluminum rim option. http://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/1MEBM62T5NH610667 http://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/1MEBM62R9LH638733

    That sucks, what a beauty and an incredible color combo. Doesn't look rusty and someone cared enough to protect the dash pad. Beautiful dark interior color too. Looks very complete with some good options but thankfully no HUD, that would have killed me, it's already bad enough it's getting scrapped.

    Convertible front body

    I can confirm this with Memphis, my 91 and 89 coupe don't have it either. It does look like a cut job, what is it? Extra crash protection to compensate for the missing roof metal?
