    Production numbers?

    I know in 87 it was called Cream Beige (Code 8509), pretty sure it was the same in 86. Definitely a rare and beautiful color. Almost bought an 87 in that color years ago, have regretted it since. That color with tan leather would have to be very rare.

    Anyone Real Sharp On Architectural Shingle Roofing?

    I'm in the middle of getting quotes to replace the roof on my house & garage, comes out to 3100 sq. ft. of roof. Looking at the GAF Timberline lifetime shingles, anyone have an idea of what this should cost?

    What is the best way to restore underhood plastics

    I use the Aerospace 303 for underhood detailing (and interior detailing) and its great. Its water based so no greasy mess that will eventually dry out vinyl/plastics like Armor All. It leaves a nice satin sheen as turbo39151 pointed out and looks great.

    (Pre-Order) 1/10th RC Grand National Bodies

    Thanks guys, it is awesome looking. Glad someone finally made a GN body, really didn't think it would ever happen. It should look a lot better once the lights and bumpers are done, I'll post some more pictures when its all finished.

    (Pre-Order) 1/10th RC Grand National Bodies

    Still not complete, but here are some pics of the GN body. Just finished painting the black inside and satin black outside for the air dams, grilles, bumper trim, etc. i still need to install the light buckets, rear bumper, and LEDs. Should have it done by the end of the weekend.

    (Pre-Order) 1/10th RC Grand National Bodies

    Agreed, I still have a few Nitro trucks kicking around but i rarely use them. When they're running well they are a blast, but it takes a lot of patience and tuning to keep them running well. Even slight changes in temp/humidity can throw a tune off in a hi-po Nitro engine. Not to mention the...

    (Pre-Order) 1/10th RC Grand National Bodies

    I had all off road RCs as well, bought my first on-road car specifically for this body. I went with a Vaterra V100 and it seems pretty decent. Pretty much any touring car will work as they are all the standard 260mm wheelbase. I considered the Associated TC4, Tamiya TT-02R, and even the new...

    (Pre-Order) 1/10th RC Grand National Bodies

    This as awesome, have been waiting years for someone to do this. I big into RC monster trucks and don't actually own an on-road car, but definitely will now. Hopefully they will include window masks & a decal sheet. Doing all of the details with paint could get tedious... This is the actual...

    Opinions of this GN

    That car is in Jersey, correct? Believe he is asking $19k for the car. I think you could find a clean car with similar mileage and similar price that still retains all of its stock parts with no stories. Just my opinion, but as said above it looks like it was modified by someone who didn't...

    Favorite low buck daily driver

    I love my Regal GS. I drive a black 99 with 240k miles and my wife drives a Jasper Green (like yours) 2000 with 170k. Great cars for the money that get decent mpg, have decent power, and are dirt cheap to keep running. Pretty much anything with the L67 engine is a great choice for a DD.

    New guy with questions

    LV2 code is for the 5.0L V8 engine. RPO would show LC2 for the turbo 3.8L if it were born with the turbo engine. 8th digit of VIN would be '7' for turbo engine as well. Looks like it was born a 307 V8 car. If you're happy with it and don't plan on selling then who cares, just enjoy it...

    4th Gen F-body opinions, advise?

    The guy with that Formula has been trying to sell it for over a year now. He started at $12k and is down to 9, I'll bet 7500-8000 buys it. Unfortunately (or fortunately for you) these cars just aren't holding value at the moment. If you're looking to get one and drive it now is a great time...

    4th Gen F-body opinions, advise?

    I've also had quite a few 99-04 Mustangs as daily drivers and I'd stick with the F Body. The Fords may have better build quality as far as the body goes, but the drivetrain goes to the LS1 F Body hands down. You'll also pay a lot more for a nice Mustang vs a nice LS1 F Body. LS1 is also a lot...

    4th Gen F-body opinions, advise?

    I've had a few 4th gens, recently sold my 99 Formula as I'm out of room and looking to get a C5 Z06. I daily drove the Formula for a few months over the summer and loved it. They're great highway cars and get killer mileage with the T56. I was seeing over 25mpg regularly cruising at 80 mph on...
